Although I loved the book and the series, you will note that I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. This is not because of the story or Mari's writing, it is because of the editing. Every book will have an error or two, but this one had more than what I would consider acceptable. I am pulled out of the story when I encounter missing words, misspellings, grammar errors or other errors that could be minimized with good, effective editing. I did not note this to be a problem in the earlier books in the series and can only surmise she changed editors or procedures.
Overall, a good book and a good read. I have purchased and am reading the next in the series.
I love the way the author uses our own language and changes certain words to reflect how some of us spoke many years ago. It was fun trying
to guess who will come out on top or what will happen next. The characters traditions were a little different then ours and left me laughing on
more then one occasion. I am in the middle of reading book 6 and will review that when I have finished with it, which won't be too long from now.
A good read
That is when this book really takes off. Earth has changed in the near thirty years since their departure. Several generations of McDonald and Rolfe descendants have been born and some have inherited the alien traits of their for bearer's. Add to that some denial, a little rumor, and stir in a touch of government interference and you have another installment of Collier’s trademark story telling of two alien species that have left their mark on Earth.
The ending leaves open the possibility of yet another book, and I hope that will be the case. While this book can be read as a stand-alone novel, to truly understand the nuances of the saga one really should read them in order, beginning with Earthbound.
