Editorial Reviews

Red Adept
Ms. Hamm did a terrific job of incorporating the two sides of the story together. By telling each side consecutively, rather than simultaneously, she made a more enjoyable read because the reader must put the pieces in order. There were "Aha" moments in the second half when I found out what the aliens were thinking during each portion in the first.

    This was a terrific short story. Had a unique twist/angle at the end. Being a fan of stories in the arctic, this was a good one. Had a couple of creepy moments too. Nice job.

    Highly recommended.

    A well written enjoyable story with good character development. This book needs a follow-on story to continue where it left off. It was too short for my taste in stories. When will the sequel be out?

    rushed ending

    The beginning of this book was awesome, and built up good suspense and interest in the characters and storyline. Unfortunately the last 5 or so pages of each story was so rushed. No development or explanation of how things progressed so quickly. Just a 'here's where they are now' type feeling.
