Fans of Ana Darcy & her wonderful Mendez family won't be disappointed with this latest sequel! DC#4 skips a few years since we last saw Ana, Matt & the kids hidden in New Mexico, enjoying a wonderful happy & full life. We're treated to some great chapters on how that life has developed, how the gifted children are growing, and how Ana has settled into her role on Earth, as well as developing the stories of those around Ana - Julio & Clio, Clio's new friend Harry, our old friends Rob and Michelle. And while it's natural to want our heroine to be the center of every plot, their lives are interesting enough to care about these side characters & to want to know more.

But we know from the outset that Ana's peaceful life won't be left alone for long... that an enemy from the past is seeking bitter revenge & that Ana's life might not ever be the same. How can she keep herself, her family & her own life safe? Ana might not be able to rely on her skills alone & she has to face some of the harsh realities of the world - the violence, the tragedies & worst for all parents: the fear of not always being able to protect your children.

This great story not only provides some of Ana's action-packed fighting skills, but the sensitive issues of battling insecurities, past & present horrors & even homesickness, that remind us the Ana is not an all-knowing all-fighting alien, but a human being; trillions of miles from home, here on an impulse to save the world & subject to all the same fears & weaknesses as the rest of us. And even with Matt by her side, can she handle them?

There are five books. Look at the publish dates to figure out in what order to read them or you will not get the proper timing of events in the story. Otherwise they are pretty separate stories. Great plot that does not depend of high tech SF background. Great characters with realistic values and interaction. The first book is probably the best because you don't know what to expect as is true with all book series. However this series builds on previous books and the story goes pretty well. This is a story of an alien coming to earth and the experiences of that person and the interaction with earth people. It is uplifting and the have some moral content with a good outcome. No bad words but there is action mixed with subtle plot development in between. I recommend them all!

Beast book in the series since the first one! There are some really powerful, memorable scenes here, and a gripping story. Once you start reading this, it pulls you all the way to the end. And with this ending, I am going straight into the next book.

I just finished this forth book in the Distant Cousin Series and found it to be an
excellent read. I have followed Ana through her 3 previous novels and watched her adapt
to her new environment. I have watched her grow and develop her "human" tendencies. I
found this novel to be especially interesting because of the character development.
Ana has proved herself to be a very extraordinary woman, but in this novel we see that
Ana is not without the feelings and problems of us mortals. This novel brings us closer
to Ana's family and friends and the Mendez family. Toward the end of this novel I found
myself thinking I was reading about my good friends and not some characters in a Fiction
Novel. I'm hoping there is a 5th in the series, I'd like to know that my friends are
OK. This is a fun and exciting series to read.

Regeneration includes the customary suspense, a few great action sequences, inside looks into the daily life of the Mendez family, which I love, and some heartbreaking new insights into Ana's past. As Ana and Matt deal with an assassination attempt, a devastating tragedy, the illness of a beloved family member, and a parent's worst nightmare, the blows never stop, becoming too much for even Ana Darcy to handle. Worried about his wife's mental state, Matt takes charge and with the help of Hleo and other family and close friends, devises a special ceremony to help heal Ana's soul and show their love and suppport. I laughed, I cried, and my heart ached for Ana and her family. The latest installment in the Distant Cousin series does not disappoint, it just keeps getting better and better!

At least it seems to be the end. It rounds things up nicely, even tying up the one loose end I was wondering about in the last pages. And, despite an unexpected family tragedy, everyone grows up in this one, not least our ET for adults, Anna Darcy-Mendez. At home in New Mexico, the kids are becoming teenagers, though maybe more in the mold an adult writer might want them than the ordinary variety. But their mother is hardly ordinary, so why should her progeny be? Their unusual talents and interests do make the whole family compelling, and the enjoyable story sends them all off to a presumably secure future.

This is definitely the best Ana Darcy book yet! I really liked the fact that I got deeper insight into some of the characters I loved from previous books (especially Rob and Michelle) and I love the twins and their story line. I think it was very interesting the challenges Ana goes through...and it was fascinating how the issues were resolved. I cannot wait for the next book!! I am excited to see what is happening with the twins, and I hope it tells a bit more of what happens with Harry and his situation!
