Publisher's Summary

Snatched from Earth. Bound for slavery. Can love offer escape?

Kidnapped from Earth, aboard a slave ship, Anya is thrown in a cell with Zar, a handsome half-lion gladiator, and forced to breed or be killed. 

Zar’s life is an unbroken nightmare consisting of sleep, eat, fight, repeat. He’s not interested in helping Anya, and he’s definitely not interested in love. Except she’s the first female to ever touch his heart - or remind him he has a soul. 

If you like hot alpha aliens, kick-ass Earth women who mastermind insurrections, and sexy action romance, check out Zar, the first book in the paranormal romance Galaxy Gladiators series. This stand-alone book contains steamy sex scenes with a guaranteed happily-ever-after, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. 

Buy Zar to begin exploring the galaxy with Anya and Zar today! 

Trigger warning: Anya and Zar are forced to mate; these scenes are delicately handled.

I couldn't even get through the 1st chapter of this. the audio was so bad that I could barely hear the narrative. I listen to tons of books on audio and this is the 1st one I seriously could not understand what was going on and I couldn't turn the stero up any more to listen to it and because all got was feedback and bass. very disappointed

Great new author for me!

I hesitated to buy this audiobook because I’d never heard of the author, but I’m glad I did. This story is about a woman who wakes up in an alien slave ship and is given to a gladiator type to be bred. Neither of them is thrilled about it, but the only other option is death by the shock collars they are forced to wear. Gradually, they become closer and love begins to happen. The heroine has an idea to overthrow the slavers and escape using their ship. With much planning, they succeed, but the hero is critically injured during the battle. The story moved along fast and had a good plot with memorable characters. I wasn’t sure about the narration at first, but it improved after the first chapter. It would have been better with both a male and female narrator.

Wow! That’s all, just wow!

I love this book! It’s exciting and captivating. I’ve already made up my mind to read all of Alana Khan’s books.
I like the sci-fi romance trope of people taken by aliens and the excitement of seeing new worlds and encountering new dangers and the wonder of getting to know and even care about alien beings. I enjoy them when they are more realistic than amusing.
This new writer is a psychologist, so she understands well the motivations of behavior.
I would definitely recommend this book. It’s worth every star!

Book is good

I bought this book on kindle and love the series! So I bought the audible too because if I like a book I usually do this. The performance is by a new guy. I hope he can read better after this criticism because he has potential. Speak louder so I do not have to turn up my volume so much it crackles or sounds bad. Please slow down so I do not need to slow it on my own. Enunciate clearly please because it is almost mumbling/stumbling words. Your voice I nice and I want you to continue.

Couldn’t finish the book because I couldn’t hear Half of the words because of the low bass level.

Fun story

I really enjoyed this audio book. The story was fun the H and h were both strong. Yes you know from the start where it was going but it was still enjoyable.
I almost didn’t get it because of one of the reviews about the narration, but I thought he did a great job. I enjoyed both his male and female renditions.
I have already purchased the next book in the series.

Slave Gladiator Kidnapped Girl from Earth

Zar is a gladiator who has been a slave all his life forced to fight and have sex without his consent. He has shut down his emotions to survive..until Anya.
Anya was kidnapped from earth by the aliens who own Zar and other slave/gladiators. A commodity, they are forced each day to have sex or be killed.
up there kindness and compassion in Zar, who looks like a man/lion, and Anya becomes attracted and something grows.
Anya is determined to be free or die...she convinces Zar it i possible...enter secondary characters that I hope have their own stories.
You can’t help be like both Zar and Anya and cheer for their relationship.
The narrator does a number of great male voices and does well with the female when it’s her POV.
Looking forward to more
I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.

Awesome Alien Abduction

I have a soft spot for Beauty and the Beast type guys and the "lion guy" who is the hero of this tale is so easy to love. The heroine is just a normal gal, not some defiant bitch on a mission, like some of these sort of stories usually have. She is believable and real. The story of their captivity, revolt, and freedom has moments of tenderness as well as excitement. This book was a credit well spent.

Steamy Sci-fi Romance

Steamy Sci-Fi Romance

Zar, the first book in the Galaxy Gladiators series, is a pretty explicit sci-fi alien romance. This was my first book by Alana Khan, I was pleasantly surprised by her creativity and her descriptive writing. The storyline is engaging with dark and erotic elements, it held my attention from start to end.

The main characters are great, they have depth and inner strength. Zar, the hero, was born in captivity and raised as slaved and became Gladiator and is forced to breed. To survive, he learned to lock his emotions tight. Anya, a human, didn't believe in extraterrestrial life, nevermind being abducted and waking on a slave ship. The being thrown into a cage with a feline humanoid alien and forced to breed. During their captivity, both Anya and Zar learn to open up to each other, lean-to trust, bond, and fall in love.

I thought Zachary Zaba did a great job with the narration and the characters' emotions. Overall, I enjoyed this audiobook, particularly the storyline. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
