Best of this genre I've read in a long time. Characters are believable tho not the conventional 'alien.' The more I read, the harder it was to put the book down. Lots of twists and turns. A really cliff hanger ending. Can't wait for the sequel. Also, I was intrigued by the story within the story. A good read! 5 stars!
