Review: I’m not entirely sure what to make of this book. I liked the story, it was interesting and enjoyable and a little different from the usual crash landing alien ship on earth and one of those aliens happening across his mate. Azri is the alien in the book, and he and his crew are stuck on earth – I may have missed it, but there was no real discussion of “stuck on the bloody planet, need to make the best of it” or “we need to blend in with the population until we find a way off this rock”.
That aside, Azri meets the human, Eric, who has an average job and a pretty crumby home life. As soon as Azri and Eric meet, Eric goes out of his way to start a new life.
As I said, I like the story. One thing that bothered me, though, was just how quickly Eric fell into step with Azri and his crew. Sure, this was required to move the novel
