My Review: I really enjoyed the slant this book had on life from other planets. The story was original and fresh. Loved the main character Dara. Her interactions with the aliens was unique. I had a little trouble getting into the book at first. I did not really like her high school friend and the conversations seemed forced. The more I got into the book though the better and more natural it seemed to flow. I would recommend it to Sci-Fi fans and I am looking forward to the next book. I would like to give it a high rating but in fairness to my other submission I have to subtract a lot for poor editing. A trip through a good editor would make this rank right up there with the best. I give this a 3 star.

The only way to read this book is if one assumes it is a farce, making fun of sci-fi tropes. However, I don’t think that is what the author intended. But how is one supposed to take this seriously: Non-humanoid aliens crash land on Earth. One of them opens the ship’s hatch for ventilation, which allows two ditzy Earth teenagers to climb aboard. The aliens--despite being, well, aliens--can breath Earth’s atmosphere and speak English (not Spanish, apparently, as we find out later). Instead of booting the teens out on their TSTL butts, the aliens take off again with the teens still on board...and go to a space station, with all kinds of other English-speaking aliens and with an atmosphere that all can jointly survive in--despite, again, being aliens that evolved on other planets. All this even though Earth has been off-limits to these multitude of alien cultures. So how do they know English, much less possess the means or the motivation to speak it? And how would one of the aliens know enough about human evolution on Earth as well as Earth culture to know that calling the heroine an “ape” would be an insult?


I DNF’d a bit later (23%). I just couldn’t take it any more. This reads like a teenager’s take on science fiction, with no basis in reality. It’s a cartoon adventure with a Mary Sue teenage heroine. It’s Romy and Michele’s Outer Space Adventures.

The mechanics of the writing, however, are not as bad as many self-published books I’ve attempted to read, and that’s why this gets two stars instead of one. The first part of the Prologue was poorly-written and confusing, but after that, the writing improved. The author only mildly abuses dialogue tags.

I enjoyed it immensely, and the only thing I would like to see added is a list of the characters and also one of the various species with descriptions. But the characters, I cared about what happened to them, and if the author evokes that in me, the book is a success.
