Author's Description

When Kyla's abduction by aliens takes an unexpected turn, she and her captor form an unlikely friendship that leads to the start of a summer they will never forget. But their new relationship is put to the ultimate test when it appears she may be vital to his kind's survival. Dual POV. Edited by Hollie Westring.

Why I Chose it

On one of the FB groups, people were listing their favorite story of the year and this one was in the mix. The first episode is a great example of someone trying to figure out how to dump their partner and then feeling hurt because the other person dumped them first. And that opens up the path for Kyla to be abducted by the aliens!

[Complete at 23 episodes.]

Unrelated Griping

It's the end of 2021 and I'm wondering if Kindle Vella will still be around at the end of 2022. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the platform improves and begins attracting more readers!


  1. I'm reading "Dragon Freehold" - Kindle Vella gave me 500 tokens - and I really like it. I'm not sure if I will keep reading Vella stories when my tokens run out, though! (Maybe!)

  2. I'm glad you're enjoying "Dragon Freehold"! I five more episodes to load and that's it for the first season!

    I really think there's an audience for serials, but I think it's mostly a different group of people than those who buy full books. And related to that, I don't think Amazon has figured out how to attract that group of people to the platform.

    (I also think the high level of complete crap to good stories is making that problem worse. Some days I read dozens of first episodes before finding one that is well written.)
