This is not a light read. While fantasy, the subject matter is all too real and often dark. An alien species called the Shifters have invaded earth. Rather than taking the time to get to know these foreign beings, all governments want them destroyed. I couldn't help but make comparisons to current immigration issues here in the U.S. Blackwelder holds a mirror up to society and gives us a look at our reflection. Prejudice and intolerance stare back at us.
While the issues in this book might make some uncomfortable, I thought Blackwelder handled them with ease. She makes no judgments and no accusations. She shows both sides without forcing us to lean in either direction.
The only problem I had was keeping all the characters and their species straight. There are many and, in the beginning, it was a little overwhelming. This book requires a slow stroll, rather than a quick jog through the pages. Stick with it and you'll be rewarded with a powerful tale.
