One thing I noticed right away in this book is that there are a lot of strong female protagonists. I appreciated that.
Each segment (novella) of this story takes place on different stations across space that humans have colonized. Some of the stations are very small and some are huge.
Then unexpected, unwanted visitors in the form of slimy bioforms start hitching rides to these station on meteors, asteroids, or what have you. That's when the horror starts.
I liked the different viewpoints from each of the five sections. I enjoyed the characters. And the monsters were scary. I enjoyed the book...and again, I'm glad I got to read it all at once rather than waiting for installments.
My one complaint would be that the ending felt rushed and was no doubt an attempt to lead into a second and possibly third book. That being said, I cannot wait to find out what happens and continue the story for humanity's struggle to survive. If you are a fan of science-fiction or alien invasion stories, this is the perfect book for you.
Science Fiction at it's best, IMHO.
