The premise of the book was interesting and showed a bit of promise - a story about aliens who have crash landed on Earth, and have decided to take on human form, and become human in every sense of the word.

However there were some major issues with this title, issues which made the book almost unreadable for me. Problem is the book was just too cliche and the characters too shallow. And worse of all, there was this whole deus ex machina thing happening every step of the way. The characters were all just way too perfect, and everything was just way too convenient. Powerful unlikely allies appears out of nowhere in every single chapter, and all the problems miraculous solve themselves via unexplainable alien technology. Darrell Bain's influence could clearly be felt too, with porn-star-like characters and mindless sex scattered throughout.

I wanted to like the book, I really did, but the planning and the writing was poor, and ultimately there were just no real development, no depth, no point to it all.
