Hmmm. I liked this book better while I was reading it then when I finished.
It was hard going the first chapters because the heroine's brain has been messed with and she is recovering from massive trauma.
The characters are compelling as is the basic plot line. I love reptile aliens so that helps.
However, so much is dangling in the writing and makes little sense and then there is the uneeded angst and the creepy fact that the heroine's and author's names are too close. Eww. Fan fiction about yourself? No.
To give you all the things that don't make sense would be spoiling things such as they are.
However, why the hell is the heroine so amazing? What was her job back in home?
Also, the use of some Aussie words was very hard to figured out from context.
And I can keep complaining because there was something I liked about the book--the hero when he was actually communicating, the friendships the heroine created, her bravery-- so all the flaws are that much more annoying.
