Wow! This book is intense. The new adventure started right away. No dilly-dallying. It gets into right into the action.
So, this continues the adventure of Jess with David. This time, she is called to represent our world to David's people. Not to mention, she gets to photograph David's ship. Isn't this a once-in-a-lifetime chance? An experience no one gets to experience in this lifetime.
If you think this second installment is just about Jess having a grand tour of an alien spaceship? Well, you are truly wrong. This tour turned into something sinister and of deadly proportions. Not to mention a crash-landing into another alien planet. But this also lead Jess to meet a very unexpected and unlikely ally. In this book, the word unexpected would you haunt every time. A lot of very unexpected and literally out-of-this-world happenings were experienced by Jess. It was amazing and most terrifying, at the same time.
This book just added more oomph to this adventure. The energy and surprises just kept on building and growing. I wonder what will happen in the next book. There is no slowing down this trip to the outer space.
I give the book 5/5 clumps of fallen leaves. I really enjoyed this book. Especially, the part where they crash landed on another alien green planet. I think Edgar made all spiders, whether earthly or alien a little less scary. This adorable character has slowly crawled into my heart. I can't wait to know what else will it save Jess and David from. Nice to meet you, Edgar. Welcome to Earth!
Real love was something you shouldn't be able to take away. It shouldn't just snuff out.
