Well, who wouldn’t just love a story about a future Earth where aliens have landed and a young girl who falls in love with one of them? I read the first 3/4’s of the book rapidly. I was really enjoying it until I suddenly noticed that there weren’t enough pages left in the book to successfully tie up all the storylines. Which means either you are going to get a really lame ending or the author is going to deliberately leave you hanging because she intends to write a sequel.
Guess which one this was.
Wrong! Evidently, this is part 1 of a new series. Darn!
I’m sure it is partly my age [don’t ask] but, I am sick and tired of series books! I want a story with a great plot, interesting characters and amazing dialogue. I want to be fully involved with the tale, but when I close the book, I want it to be OVER.
I don’t want to wait until the next book comes out to find out what happens! Usually, I have forgotten the subtler points in the previous book by then and am, therefore, compelled to re-read it before tackling the new book. I’m old. I don’t have that kind of time to devote to one author anymore. Especially not if I want to have time enough to read everything else out there before I clock out!
There. That’s my rant.
Please know, however, that this was indeed a great story. Though the “alien” is not quite as alien as I would have wished, it is worth reading. That is, if you don’t mind waiting for the next installment. Go ahead. You young folks still have plenty of time to spare.
