"Skin" and "Symbiont" by Melissa McCann are both excellent reads. The concept is fresh and exciting. The author takes you through unbelievable scenes throughout this exciting story. It's a whole new world out there, and it could actually happen.

I was mesmerized by the story and hankered for more. Finally, "Symbiont" arrived. I couldn't have been happier.

Pick up this read today. You will not be disappointed.
