4.0 out of 5 stars captivating 18 Sep 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This Roswell book grips you from the first chapter and i couldnt put it down. I think i liked this book so much because it explains about the genetic doners and who they were and it describes who charles dupree is in a bit more detail in relation to michael which i think the T.V show could have used a bit more. I recommend this book to any Roswell fan!

3.0 out of 5 stars Skeletons In The Closet... we all have 'em 12 Nov 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Extremely well written, Skeletons In The Closet offers the chance to find out more about the hybrids background, going into the sphere of alien abductions and UFOs. A recommended read for those of you who loved the "Summer of '54" episode and wished for a more substantial view of just how the alien hybrids came to be who they were.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Too Much Meat On Its Bones, But Worth the Read 4 Jan 2003
By Bruce Rux - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not the best of the series, but a worthy addition. It reads like one of the better-than-average episodes of the show.
Michael - as usual - is in trouble with the law over his delinquent past, this time in more hot water than ever: he's suspected of murdering his brutal stepfather. Sheriff Valenti is up to his neck as well, since - as usual - he knows who the old man's killer must have been: Nasedo, the now-deceased shapeshifting alien who watched over Michael and his equally alien friends. Valenti's covering-up has come to the attention of the man who took Valenti's job away from him, spotlighting the number of times Valenti has performed in like fashion in the past. In the meantime, Michael's fellow aliens, Max and Isabel, are hot on the trail of one of the gene-donors their alien parents abducted and used to create their human appearance and nature - a genetic scientist who is the spitting image of the alien kids' personal Judas (and mother of Max's son), Tess.
The real problem with this particular entry isn't a lack of knowledge of the show and its characters, but an overabundance of it. The authors plainly know all the multiple soap-opera ins and outs, and reference so many of them that a newcomer to the Roswell stories - or even someone only partly aware of them - will quickly become lost, if they're not careful. However, the characters are wonderfully written, and the action and the plot remain steady. Numerous delightful inside-joke touches are added, such as Isabel's noticing her hair style is similar to that of a nameless WB (the station that aired the show) actress, and Max and Isabel's personal song being the series' theme by Dido.
You could do better, but not much. Well worth reading. It will be more comprehensible to real series fans, but even if you're not, you can keep up with it - if you try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Roswell story - You must haved this!! 19 Dec 2002
By Hoodie - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm so excited to see that Andy Mangels and Michael A. Martin are writing another novel for this series due out in June.
This was the best Roswell book in the YA series. It certainly captures the flavor of the series - all the characters certainly ring true! Kyle is his dry, loveable self! Very funny! Max just wants to get back with Liz! Valenti helps the kids out! Liz figures out the scientific stuff. Micheal and Maria are constantly at each other! The authors even quote "Here With Me" during one scene. And, of course, Sheriff Hanson is a major dork and the parents are clueless!
If you are a huge Roswell fan, you are certain to enjoy it. There's a nice balance of sci-fi and relationships. I enjoyed the intrigue of the sci-fi storyline. And there are so many homages to the show - it's obvious these authors either did their homework or are major fans!
I'm so, so, so happy these authors are working on another Roswell book! I'll be first in line to get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars roswell at it's best 11 Nov 2002
By tammy - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this book's events takes place betweeen season 2 and 3. michael,max and isabel decide to try and find their human counterparts after michael found out that he was cloned from dna
from charles dupree. but when michael is charged with the murder
of his foster father, the aliens find it harder to do research
when the sheriff and the prosecutor have them under constant
survellience. this book fills in a lot of gaps that the tv show
did not bother with and it is definitely worth reading. it is the
best of the roswell books that have come out so far and i hope that the author will continue to write more books becuase obviously he is a true fan of the tv show.

I guess I'm biased, but I love all things Roswell. Each of the follow-up novels have been great additions to the adventure.
