First of all, this was an interesting, genre blending read that took me by surprise. Is is sci-fi? Romance? sort of dystopian but not really? So many possibilities but none fit quite right, and I enjoy that in a book. Proximity is told from the POV of Palta, and although she is not of this planet, she displays an array of human emotions. You really feel as if you understand what she is going through, and you are on the edge of your seat waiting to see how it all turns out. You aren’t kept waiting long though! This was not in the least bit clumsy or off pace, and I found myself staying up a bit too late reading this one, only to wish I could stay up even more for the next book!
5 roaring stars
****ARC provided for honest opinion.***
After a slow start, getting to know the characters, Proximity took off. I was hooked. From about 60% of the book, I couldn't stop reading. In fact, I was still reading at 5 this morning. Thank goodness for an ending that didn't leave me hanging. Sure there was a few threads that need to be taken care of, but I was left elated which, of course, made me wakeful, wondering how the next bits will be taken care of. (Non-spoiler enough?)
I can't wait for payday so I can get the next book. Thank you M.A. George for writing such a different, kind of story. Oh, and I need to mention how I loved that the characters were very well educated with goals and talents, along with a little romance. Very good!
This is a well written story of aliens who came to earth and live quietly among us. The story makes it so believable, you get drawn into the story immediately. I enjoyed it very much. I would like to thank MA George for the chance to read and review her book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good story.
Dr. Palta Capal is a physician, but she is not of this world, she is literally from another planet. Life is not always easy for Palta since they live hundreds of years on her planet, she doesn't want to get too close to anyone.
When a new man at work catches her eye, she starts to reevaluate her life. But it is not long until she finds out that he holds a secret, a secret that is going to join the two worlds and can alter her life forever.
A fast paced, fun read. I really liked Palta, she is so lovable, the plot is very good. I was engrossed until the last page. I do look forward to more in the Proximity series.
The author did an outstanding job with Proximity. She ended it on a very high note that left me extremely curious and eager to start the next install, Relativity.
