Jaded high school Junior and detention hall regular Larissa Locke has a recurring dream in which creatures sneak into her bedroom at night to perform experiments and extract her blood. Tiny scars on her arm suggest that perhaps she isn’t just dreaming. But wait! If she’s really the victim of blood-sucking alien intruders, then why is her bedroom window still locked each morning?
First of all, thank you so much to Lane for providing me a review copy of your book! Of course, I got the copy in exchange for an honest review.
I really liked this short story. I usually don’t read sci-fi books but the premise really spoke to me and it was a very fun and quick read.
What really got me to like this book was the main protagonist Larissa. She was such a fun and relatable character! I loved how she handled the situation with the aliens. Also, speaking of aliens, why hasn’t anyone thought of some story like this sooner? This was literally one of the few original sci-fi books.
Lastly, the main idea behind the book really made it a good book and that is very hard to achieve because when you only have 156 pages it’s hard to write a whole story with character development and all that still going on. I mean just the fact that Baker managed to fit that kind of unique story into 156 pages is amazing. When I first saw how short really the book was I thought that this could never be just one book but I thought the length and all the actions were just enough.
If you’re looking for a short sci-fi read then this is perfect, I highly recommend this to anyone liking aliens and sci-fi in general!
Overall Rating: 4/5
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you in my next post!
