Seriously, Stephanie Osborn has taken much of the UFO-mythology including the mysterious black suited people who "hide the truth" and made a fun & exciting story which is the beginning of a new series.
This is a story for people like me who find the UFO-mythology to be somewhat silly and IMO for people who may believe in the UFO-mythology.
IMO she didn't take the mythology too seriously but also didn't mock the mythology.
She basically focused on creating characters who the reader can like & can believe are real people.
She has also did a good job of mixing action with the quieter moments.
While long a fan of her Displaced Detective series I am thrilled to see this new direction she's taken and look forward to many more in this series.
It's funny in places, lots of action, some suspense and romantic elements, and the lead characters are well drawn and sypathetic. What more do you want? Space slugs? Ok you can have those too. Also adorable little groots running loose in Central Park and so on. No cute furry creatures from Alpha Centauri though.

The rest was talk. Boring talk.
There are two protagonists, one male, one female. They are not believable.
They are so smart and clever and trained (adults) and see everything and think so fast and good that they will deduce so many things about their surroundings that almost everything is clear to them... bla bla. That is the theory.
She knows they are going to the coldest area of earth, her partner expects her to wear the correct clothing.
She does not have that clothing.
She says nothing and just wears everyday clothing.
What? Again? A "smart" adult who endangers the mission, the team and people who are to be protected because... why again?
The later talk about this "cold problem" will take ca. 60 pages.
So we have a problem which should not exist and then we have to skip 60 pages to get to a point where something a bit interesting is happening?
His partner is freezing to death and he does not recognize this. He is so smart, right? And sees everything around him? Right?
One bad guy killed some people and is currently trying to kill the protagonist. He gets behind the killer and then starts to think.
If he just shoots him dead, his one shot could destroy something important, that is too dangerous.
Attacking from behind is not nice too, so he will not do that.
So instead of doing his mission, protecting himself and so his partners and the people he is there to protect,
he calls to the back of the killer. That one turns and - remember: weapon fire is dangerous, the one shot to his head is far too dangerous to try, even for one who is super skilled and can hit anything everywhere at anytime - starts to fire his weapon in automatic mode for a long time.
This was so smart. Again.
The English is good, not exceptional, but good. There were no errors which I saw at all, but then I skipped ca. 2/3 of the book because it was so boring.
So, let's shorten the review to:
- bad written action because of too much talk/thinking/other info
- uninteresting talks which take hundreds of pages
- silly behavior of both protagonists
- the concept of sex is something which seems to make the female protagonist uncomfortable (smart adult? where?)
