I really enjoyed this short-read. It was well written, interesting, and kept me intrigued from start to finish. I really recommend this for anyone who is looking for a short read on your lunch break at work, on the train, or whenever you feel like reading a good, short story. I must point out as well that I do love the cover art on this book, it’s stunning!

A truly unlikable character whether that was the point or not 8 do not know but it made it harder for me to enjoy the book. Aliens in two senses... give it ago if you like the gang style of writing you should enjoy.
