Read in August, 2011

As far as sci-fi goes, this book would be considered pretty main-stream (which is good or bad depending on where you come from). The character development ties you in from the very beginning as you are introduced to the struggles that an Humanesque Alien living on earth being chased by other humanesque aliens might encounter. It is a series book, with a back-story that is very intriguing involving the death of all but a few of a world population and makes you really sympathetic to the protagonists predicament.
As hard as Alien books are to get into sometimes, I didn't feel that way with this one. The setting, I think, is what made this book believable. I'd describe the book as the story of a "The Day the Earth Stood Still" type alien, told from a "Vladimir Tod" type perspective, in a "Heroes" (T.V. Show) meets "Twilight" type setting.
