I absolutely loved this book! I mean you can't exactly go wrong with aliens. I really loved that the souls were gentle people( or worms shall I say) instead of unrealistic aliens. I mean don't get me wrong sometimes it annoyed me that the souls did NOT react at all at times when I probably would be angry/hysterical. I also LOVED the details. The author has some wicked imagination. I thought the romance took a while to get to( and being in Melanie's memories doesn't count) but I say it was worth the wait! The action made up for the some of the romance and it kept me wanting more. The 1 thing I didn't like very much was the ending. I mean it just doesn't make sense that it is a single book and it ends almost like a cliffhanger. I still would recommend it still!
