This is a wonderful first attempt by an author who has a bright, shining future, in this galaxy or any other! Ann’s imagination is so vivid that the reader is left with not having to figure anything out. Everything is painted, in words for the reader’s mind. Her characters are full of life and very believable. The story concept is fresh and fun.
I predict wonderful things for Ann O’Bannon. Keep an eye on this author, her star is shining bright!!
