I really enjoyed the story. I thought for a story about aliens it was a unique and original. Like most books that are the first in a trilogy this is setting the foundations for what I think will be a superb trilogy. I am looking forward to seeing how the characters and story develop over the next two books.
I would recommend it to any one.

It was kind-of like one of those old wooden roller coasters - fun, but it whips you around and you're a bit dazed after. I think that with just a bit of work this book could definitely be 5 stars. Or a great movie. I'd totally watch it if it were made into a movie.
The book is about 3 (and more) alien races and the main character, Nell, is a blend of 2 of them who looks human and lived on Earth until just before her 17th birthday when the "changes" would begin. The story line is very original, the different races were intriguing. I thought it might be an allusion to the horrors of racism. This story follows Nell through her coming of age and the machinations of those who would destroy her. Good stuff.
Like I said, I liked the premise but the crafting of the story could use some tweaking. Definitely worth the money I paid for it on Kindle. It's a fast read, too. Read it in about 5 hours. If the author does some tweaking I would love to check it out and revise my review. I'm an author too, and I hope my critiques are not too harsh and can help in making a good book great.
Until her father and newly reviled relatives unveil to her that she is not only a human, she also is an alien from another world. And here starts the incredible story of a teenager, who was hurled into space to land on the alien planet.
Dale Furse, the author, did a good job to put Nell as she was, a normal, scared teenager facing the challenges of growing up as she was put onto the alien world.
She learns more about herself and her true self as the story unfolds, as she realizes that she is both, human and alien.
A great story for young teenager, YA and even to the age of 99 years.
The author provides her readers with a fresh and engaging plot that becomes quite thought provoking. How well do you really know a person? And how much do we truly know ourselves or our heritage? I feel that all people keep many aspects of themselves hidden from others. As much as you think you `know' someone else, in reality, you really only know what they `want' you to know. That is a simple fact.
I found the Flow of the dialogue to be excellent and engaging...with a natural tone to it. I found myself immersed in the vivid scenery and emotional entanglements as each scene progressed unto the next. This author knows her craft and it is brilliantly portrayed in the way this story unfolded. Nell, our wonderful heroine is so easy to connect with on an emotional level. I found myself connected to her honesty, her flaws and moved by her courage to keep moving forward in her quest to help her race and save herself, she is pushed out of her comfort zone throughout every step of her journey and the reader can relate to her fears and insecurities but, we cheer her on with each new triumph.
For a New Writer Ms. Furse effortlessly leaves a new reader with a Memorable `First Impression'. This new author certainly showcases her seasoned writing skills and creativity in a way that pulls the reader into her story by dropping subtle hints to keep you guessing laced with little tidbits to keep your curiosity peaked. I look forward to seeing the next book released in this trilogy. I can’t wait to see what is waiting for Nell around the next corner!
I give this one two thumbs up! It was an entertaining and engrossing read with a unique story plot I haven't read before. If you enjoy delving into the depths of Alien worlds, magical abilities and mysterious quests, then this is a great Book to curl up with!
