Review No Earthly Shore by Jilly Paddock
I love Science Fiction and this one was on one of my favourite themes in that genre the first contact with an alien species. That said I believe this could have been so much more than what you get. It has a happy feel to it, but there was no real conflict and no depth to the tension a true first contact should bring. If you want a book that makes you feel good with an awesome description of an alien lifeform then this is for you, if however you want a narrative with depth and tension when learning to understand another's viewpoint don't read this one - you won't get any of that here!
