Audio review: The Kindred by Alechia DOw


Narrated by: Dominique Moore, Amin El Gamal


Length: 11 hrs and 28 mins


Release date: 01-04-22


Publisher: Harlequin Audio


In exchange for an honest review


YA Scifi romance






In a galaxy far far away a kingdom decided to pair up people so their minds connected. Which is disturbing in a way, like someone there 24/7. And almost all fall in love. Again, sure you know each other outside and inside, but almost all? Did they invent the best dating app ever? Sell it! Make some money.




Anyway, Joy is poor, Felix is a Duke. They are kindred, so they do love each other to bits, but have never met in person. Felix is a spoiled brat. Joy is hardworking and optimistic.




Evil space drama! Save Joy!




And Earth?! Rather disappointing, most boring place in the universe. But Felix and Joy likes it, so I guess it is ok then




I liked it, fun, a but of danger and romance. Since they do want to be together, but they are from different worlds. Literally.




Good narration. He really got Felix, that spoiled teenager who thinks he is all that, and well he is all that. A nice variation of voices. Same with the narration of Joy, she did well there.

They blended well






Joy Abara knows her place. A commoner from the lowly planet Hali, she lives a simple life—apart from the notoriety that being Kindred to the nobility’s most infamous playboy brings. Duke Felix Hamdi has a plan. He will exasperate his noble family to the point that they agree to let him choose his own future and finally meet his Kindred face-to-face.




Then the royal family is assassinated, putting Felix next in line for the throne…and accused of the murders. Someone will stop at nothing until he’s dead, which means they’ll target Joy, too. Meeting in person for the first time as they steal a spacecraft and flee amid chaos might not be ideal…and neither is crash-landing on the strange backward planet called Earth. But hiding might just be the perfect way to discover the true strength of the Kindred bo
