S.E. Anderson continues the galactic hijinks, action, and humor. A delightfully funny read.

Sally, our protagonist, is plunged into a world of aliens and unfamiliarity and must navigate it, while, of course, becoming tangled up in an awesome plot where she has to save the world. I loved how this book shows Sally on her own--Zander promptly loses her as he's giving her a tour of an alien planet, and at first, I wasn't sure that I *would* like it. After all, my favourite parts in the first book were the interactions between these two characters. So having Sally navigate this world alone is certainly a bold move. But it works SO WELL. It really helped me connect more with Sally and find out more about who she is, and about her past too. The characterisation is phenomenal too, as Sally's forced to get stronger and more confident, and we see her overcome her earlier anxiety (but not in an 'it's all cured now' way--no, it's still believable). But I love that we see someone who has mental health problems surviving in this world.
Yet, this book doesn't lose the humour either. There's plenty of that, and it keeps the tone light in places where it might otherwise get too heavy.
There are also some great new characters (aliens!) in this book, and each felt really well-rounded (whether they were good or evil), and provided a really entertaining read. And that ending!
Oh man, this was exhilarating! It was hilarious, emotional, and brilliant! I have been dying waiting for Doctor Who to come back, and Alienation has satiated my hunger for the moment! It had everything I loved about one of my favorite shows, and had S.E. Anderson's unique style and personality taking center stage!
This one was so much better than Starstruck, and I gave that one 5 stars already! Alienation saw the return of our favorite space traveling alien, but also turned the focus to the lovable, quirky Sally! I really learned a lot about Sally and how strong she is. She was so brave and yet, still had a vulnerable side that snuggled up next to her witty humor and sarcasm. She used her head and followed her heart, and kicked butt along the way.
I could not have predicted the wild turns this ride took, either! Man, it was good! The story paid homage to several popular fandoms, all while keeping its originality and whimsy. It was daring and fascinating, and still managed to bring to light important issues of equality, inclusion, and the importance of humanity and friendship. If you haven't read Starstruck yet, I highly recommend buying all three books because the first two were so addictive that I am dying for the next!
I had the opportunity to read this e-book for free, in exchange for my honest review, after connecting with the author through The Book Robin Hoods site.
After reading the first book of the series, I could hardly wait for this book to be available. I’m now stuck waiting for another installment.
Just like book one, the story moved at a good pace. I was happy to see the main character’s interaction with new characters and situations. It’s was fun seeing her growth. I feel a few things were left open, so hoping they are hashed our in book three. All in all, this is a good read. I would recommend the series.
The plot itself takes you by the leg and drags you happily along their interstellar quirky roller-coaster. It has hints of all the great sci-fi and comedy tropes that unlike most books in the sci-fi/humour genre, don't make you want to jump into a black hole. Instead re-invents them and keeps them fresh and relevant to the story.
BY FAR HER BEST BOOK TO DATE. LOVE IT.
This book picks up 2 Earth years after the first book ends. This book features Sally 90% of the book. Zander and Blayde appear at the beginning and the end. I love the character development that Sally has gone through from the first book and throughout the second. She has grown so much!
The plot is just a outrageous and comical as the last book, but somehow, S.E. Anderson makes it even better. There is action, aliens, comical Klutzy moments, and so so much more. If you haven't read Starstruck, do it now, so you can read Alienation next. For now, I am on to Traveler.

Anderson’s writing style is fun. She has humor, wit, and satire in spades! Even in the face of extreme danger, her characters’ smart ass remarks keep you laughing the whole way through. The authors great and funny use of metaphors make the story real and relatable: “My palms were so drenched in sweat; I could have single-handedly rehydrated a desert.” I’ve never felt myself so easily able to relate to a character. I also strongly recommend paying close attention to Chapter titles in this series; they’re so fun!
The author doesn’t just create a whole new world in your mind, she makes even the little things alien too, with sayings like “out of the red” and “poking my nose.” The settings in this series are so important, and involve so much detail. In each new location, Anderson rises to the occasion, making the reader feel like they are right there. Enough detail to fill all the empty spaces in your mind, but not so much that you grow tired of reading about details, rather than plot.
Each element of this book is handled with absolute finesse. From the gut-laughing intro, that pulled me into the new world with Sally and her alien friends, to the suspense that had me chewing my finger nails and shaking to turn the page the whole way through. “Webber, Sally Webber: Interstellar woman of mystery” was brilliant, pulling things out of her you-know-what, while somehow managing to survive in this alien atmosphere. And finally, the conclusion left me with a feeling that I feel like every book should have: The story for this particular book felt finished, but still left me wanting and aching for more. I can’t wait to fall down the rabbit hole with Sally again, bring on book three!
