I was really happy when I finally discovered this series! I was extremely happy to have another fix to my Roswell withdrawals! I really liked the ending of the series, it all sorta came "whole-circle" in the end, better than what the TV series gave! Would recommend to all Roswell fans!!
This was really a nice rejuvenation. I had been needing more Roswell after so long and re-watching the series just didn't cut it. I'm glad there are novels like these :)
This author did a MARVELOUS job of keeping the characters in tune. Everything they said and did and the way they acted was identical to those on screen. The story even kept me interested. It's not really scary, it's more creepy. I was captured until the end but I felt like it just dwindled. I look forward to the other books and

These books are rated more for teens, and I read the Roswell series when I was about 15 ..... but I still really love reading them now. They're written in an easily worded way so that if you want something quick and easy to read, they're perfect ..... I love the whole series :)
Any book that let me visit with Max, Liz, Maria and Michael, I am there. I always loved these characters on Roswell and even though the books are never as good as the television show I just love visiting with these old friends again.

This one actually kept me up scared at night a couple of times, until they finally started figuring out what was really going on. I am not a big ghost lover and this story kept me into it and worried the whole time.

I liked the action parts of the book but I can't stand the usage of said. Liz said. Max said. Valenti said. Other words can be used like Max replied. or Max answered.
