I found this story of the first human interaction with alien species to be interesting. I am normally not a sci-fi reader but won this book from LibraryThing.
This story was well crafted and written. The different species types and their interactions was interesting and I found myself anxious to read more to see what happens next.
I especially enjoyed the characters and their development. The author does a good job quickly establishing the many characters in a way that I was able to grasp each as individuals yet manage to keep them separate and independent.
This is a good read and should be read by all scifi buffs.
