I found the story rather unique in the genre. It wasn't your typical "evil alien" race invading, more one with a set of their own rules on when they can take over a world. The story on the alien side then covers their own internal dealing of those rules. Not wanting to give too many spoilers, but this rested on the humans being classified at a certain level of sentience and civilization. Some of the aliens believed they did meet this, and set about to prove it. I did like that one of the points of contention was around the Catholics and transubstantiation.
The book in itself was a complete story ending on a victory of sorts, fortunately not ending on a cliffhanger, but it does clearly leave it ready for a next novel. Which I'd be eager to listen to. I did get this audiobook as a free review copy.
Narration wise, I felt that the narrator had an excellent voice and clarity. However it did seem to me like he was introducing unnecessary pauses in sentences, like there were additional commas in sentences. I had purchased the kindle edition, and with the examples I checked, they weren't in the print.
In all a very impressive debut novel.
Congratulations to Patricia Rose, who has published her first novel on her birthday!
This story captured me from the beginning. I was pulled into a story weaved so tightly that I found myself reading until my eyes blurred. Iron Mike is a character you can't help but love. I cried, I laughed, I yelled at him but most importantly, I couldn't stop reading!
I must admit that my favorite person in this entire book is Hershey. What a great viewpoint for this story.
Patricia Rose has written one of my favorite stories of the year. I cannot wait to see what this talented author has in store for readers next.
