One can tell that the author is new, but not necessarily in a bad way. There were a few small errors in the text, but not enough to make me cringe, and I would say I'm towards the more picky side. The author mentions that this is somewhat YA centered, which is probably accurate as the dialogue stays fairly simple, and there were a few overly cutesy moments between characters, but maybe I'm just jaded from being off the market for a while.
I think that overall, this is a good effort, and worth the reader's time. I like the overall story, and am interested enough to read more, which is saying something for me, as I consumer a fairly large amount of indie e-books, and maybe only one in twenty trilogies/series catches enough of my attention to make me want to read another installment.
Just a random note, I think the author did very well witholding plot details and revealing sprinkles of info throughout the book, but there were a few instances where "show, don't tell" might have been implemented a little more strongly. Also, the cliffhanger ending was a bit too "cliffhangery", could have probably been smoothed out a little bit somehow. I think I would have disliked it more than I did, if I wasn't already interested in reading more of the story.
Oh well, if I can wait forever for other authors... not mentioning any names, Patrick R., George R.R. ... ahem... I can wait for this one! They should have email notifications for series. :)
Well worth the read, no nasty/offensive or overly gruesome scenes. Highly recommended for all alien/sci-fi fans.
The story was written for a younger age than I am, although I believe many older will enjoy this book. I hope to read a sequel!
