Overpopulation, disease, and ecological disaster were edging humanity toward extinction. Hope arrived in the haan, an alien race that promised us a future.
And what they wanted in exchange seemed so harmless…
Sam Shao has found out too much about the haan, by accident. All humans have to get along with them—we owe them our lives—and Sam even counts a haan among her best friends. But the more she learns, the less she trusts them.
It doesn’t help that the building of new haan colonies seems to be coinciding with a rash of missing persons cases. Sam and her hacker friends are determined to reveal the truth about the haan, before it’s too late. The aliens are still promising salvation, and they seem set to deliver, but with things already spinning out of control Sam is confronted with a possibility no one wants to admit—that what salvation means to humankind and what it means to the haan may be two horribly different things.

Wow this series is really hitting its stride. Once again action packed, well written and this time much easier to follow. I highly recommend reading the first two books in this series first, it will add so much to your understanding of the story line, whhich is awesome.
In this story we get a better feel of everyone and the feelings they have. Sam was much more interesting in this addition, her thoughts and how she sees things, were like a window into her mind, I liked her much more in this story. How she treats Alexei (not at first) shows how much she has grown and what is important to her and the people she cares about much more openly now.
Sam and Vamp’s relationship grows in this story as well it doesn’t take over the story, but flows nicely. The triangle with his ex is interestingly done and that it gets resolved in a positive way was a great.
Now as far as the mystery went, omgosh, talk about not seeing things coming!!! This author did a fantastic job, of keeping me on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out what was going to happen. Things are not what they seem and then they are and then they aren’t, but not in a confusing way, in a I want to figure out this puzzle type of way.
I highly recommend this book to people who enjoy, of course Sci-fi with twists or puzzles in their stories that really are interesting and not something they will see coming. I know, I know we hear this so many times but in this case the story could have gone in so many different directions and still have been good but the author has such a wonderful imagination that I would not have guessed where it was going and trust me I tried. I can’t wait to see where the author takes this story. I’m looking forward to the next installment.
