    1. The easiest way to write a Science-Fiction novel is to do away with Old Earth. Let the action take place on some planet in a distant galaxy, long ago, or even better, lets just destroy Earth completely and let man explore the stars in their ragged looking spaceships, like some nomadic band of camel riders in the foreign desert. I guess it's Romantic that way, to push the future away, for the goals that mankind has reached and surpassed are so far away from us now, we could never reach them. Or a [...]

    2. What would happen if an alien species came to Earth to try to help humans and animals change their lifestyle in hopes of improving the environment? Author Cary Neeper has developed an interesting fictional story around this premise in “The Alien Effect”. While this book is one of several the author has written along this vein, I felt that the characters and their circumstances were not clearly defined at the outset of this book. As a newcomer to these stories, I can appreciate that she want [...]

    3. The theme is important: how to create sustainability when people are focused upon growth. While I enthusiastically support that, I have to say the story is not as strong as it could be. The author has created some interesting aliens but the various voices seemed a bit muddled and I had to turn to the Appendices too often, trying to keep things straight. Too much "telling" as opposed to "showing." Nice illustrations, but I kept wishing they included portraits of the characters I was reading about [...]

    4. Great characters from a strange and unique planet that we get little glimpses of, but not an adequate overview of, move to Earth to lead an economic revolution. The characters perhaps were fleshed out better in a previous novel however as I hadn't read any previous novels in this series it took too long become comfortable with how the family unit worked even on a very general level. When the book transitioned from the voice of Shawne to other family members the distinction was hard to discern ev [...]

    5. I won a free copy of this book on LibraryThing.This book was a really great sci-fi story. I liked how most of the alien species were very different from humans (with the exception of 1 type) because most sci-fi aliens are too similar to humans. I definitely want to check out this author's other sci-fi books in this same series.

    6. I received this book as a winner. I felt like I was missing something when i read this book and I couldn't fully get into it. I then realized it was part of a series. So this book really can't be fully enjoyed as a stand alone novel.

    7. I tried reading this book but found it was missing something but I kept reading till it was done to see if it would get better.
