I found this story of the first human interaction with alien species to be interesting. I am normally not a sci-fi reader but won this book from LibraryThing. This story was well crafted and written. The different species types and their interactions was interesting and I found myself anxious to read more to see what happens next. I especially enjoyed the characters and their development. The author does a good job quickly establishing the many characters in a way that I was able to grasp each as individuals yet manage to keep them separate and independent. This is a good read and should be read by all scifi buffs.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it. I am so glad I did! While I am not a writer (as you can probably tell from my review), I am an avid reader, and was very happy to find this little gem among the many rough books I've received to review. The plot kept moving forward at a good pace. The writing was crisp, clean, and well edited. I was able to connect with the characters as they matured throughout the course of the book. I appreciated the straightforwardness of the writing, with no flashbacks, flash forwards, or other distractions. The product description provides a good glimpse into the story. In short, I loved the book and can't wait to learn more about Trang and the alien races, especially the White Spiders, in future books. Thank you, Mary Sisson, for such a pleasurable read.
