Review by: Line Michaud-Little on Aug. 7, 2012 :
Interesting book about a group from another planet getting adapted to the living of planet earth with many twists and intriguing facts. I cannot wait to see the next two books. Again Marcelle writes her books so you cannot put them down. So make sure u have a good stretch of free time because this book is hard to put down.

Review by: seekeen on Aug. 6, 2012 :
This book was very satisfying as a mystery, and obviously has an element of fantasy. Not so obvious, there is a hint of romance as well, although just a hint. It is possible to see it as a study of discrimination and oppression, but don't let that prevent you from giving it a read. I found the characters to be well-rounded and I was surprised at the end. I look forward to more books from this author.
