This story has huge room for development. The character's are interesting, especially Gavin. As the review below said one main thread was ignored which, if worked on could be made into a very interesting story
Aliens and space lions not my usual cup of tea but I found it interesting. I think it had loads of room for development into a much longer story. Also could have done with more description on the other plants and the landscape etc. Overall it was a neat short story and great as a quick read.
