“Heartsong” by Annie Douglass Lima

In a novel of this sort, the amount of attention the author has paid to the creation of the alien culture and physique is very important. These aliens are well within the realm of the “could be true,” as are their reactions and emotions. Sort of humanoid in shape and psyche, but different enough to be interesting.
The human characters and their reactions to the conflict are completely realistic, especially the main character, Hope, a loner and Science Fiction fan who is primed to adapt to an alien culture. Perhaps too primed to be analytical about what is happening to her. Which sets up the conflict for the rest of the story.
A carefully planned, well written novel, suitable for adults, young and old.
(5 / 5)
