Happy Snak - Nicole Kimberling

I hate how Samhain always puts pages of excerpts at the ends of their books. I never read them, and they mess with my perception of when the story I'm reading is supposed to end, leaving me feeling adrift.

 

The alien culture stuff was excellent, so very, very good. Anything to do with the humans was much less so. I don't think Gaia's ex-husband's name was ever even mentioned, for example, and, if Gaia ever had friends in her entire life, she certainly didn't think about them.

 

Hopefully I'll have a review written sometime in the next day or two.
