"Author D.L. Richardson takes a really interesting concept here, subverting the ideas of both alien invasion and space travel to make Earth and its inhabitants into the captive species." Readers Favorite
“Told from several points of view, humans, and aliens, the story moves along quickly as tension builds, leading to an unknown future, different from anything humans have experienced since the arrival of the Criterion.
