ARRIVAL’s reviews are coming in strong.
> This is an amazing book that swept me up in its world on page one and didn’t let me go until it ended. I knew from the blurb I was interested, since it’s got aliens arriving on Earth, another space enemy about to kill all humans so they can have the planet for themselves, an extremely hot alien falling for a human but being held back by having lost a lover before… the list goes on. And with Michelle Robbins, who is a new author to me, weaving all of these elements into an action-packed novel that contains drama and a hot romance on top of some wonderful cross-cultural insights and fascinating interspecies issues, I was totally hooked.
> Liam and Mike’s story is fascinating, and the clash between human habits and ways of communicating, ways of seeing reality, is significant. Both Liam and Mike have to learn how to relate without inadvertently hurting each other in the process. Their struggles are believable, the world building superb, and I can’t wait to find out more about them and the rest of the Urilqii.
> If you like science fiction that is truly “out there” yet presented in a very believable and realistic way, if you enjoy stories about men who come from different species and have to relearn the basic if they want to make their relationship work, and if you’re looking for an intense read that won’t let you go once you started, then you will probably enjoy this novel as much as I did.
