Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.
Zach's father was a hero. He killed the leaders of the remaining Opalites, after they invaded. Raven coming into Zach's emergency room opens him to the realization that the ADULTS had been killed. But the CHILDREN had been secreted away, with sympathetic humans willing to raise these alien children as their own. Now, 20 years later, Raven wants to find his sister, and the other Opalite young adults, and take them all home. And Zach too, Raven cannot leave Zach.
For the most part, I enjoyed this book, but it's one of those books that, while well written, well told and reasonably well delivered, just didn't push my buttons in a way it should have.
I liked that its told from both men's point of view. I liked that its not immediately clear what either man is up to. I liked all the double dipping going on, not being sure who really is the bad guy and who isn't.
There were lots of little things that niggled me, things that didn't quite make sense, or follow on, or follow through in the story line. That's the overwhelming feeling I'm left with- lots of niggles. And I cannot, for the life of my, figure them all out to write them down. But in doing so, that might leave spoilers.
Still I DID finish it, and it does have a happy ending, so...
3 solid stars.
