I have become acquainted with Al on the Kindle Boards, and enjoyed his first Anna Darcy novel very much. I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series.

I'm not a big SciFi nut. This unusual tale of Darcy (a female humanoid who lives on another planet and has been observing Earth for years) and her computer-human symbiant moves at a good pace and pulls you in. When calamity threatens, Darcy decides to warn Earthlings of impending doom. Hence begins an adventure that sets off local police and FBI searches as Darcy tries to find one person who will believe her. This is a clever book in a genre that isn't normally my cup of tea.
Interesting premise--a human from a "lost" colony from earth comes to warn earth about asteroids heading our way. A fish-out-of-water story as Ana Darcy tries to fit in. It ended nicely, not too much of a cliffhanger, but also set up for the next book in the series.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters really "grabbed" me and it was a very easy story to read. I'm looking forward to the other two books in the series.

The beginning and the end were good but the middle was boring. Interesting concept.However, I am not sure I want to read more of these.
Ok read - couple of minor plot holes but otherwise quite entetaining
