5th sentence, 74th page: The size of it could only be made out because the edges of it sparked in the water.
What happens when the aliens invade supernatural territory? Be thrown in the bayou and a love triangle to find out.
I really liked the idea behind this story – extraterrestrials have visited New Orleans and the Bayou. There is one lady that has the contacts to find out what is happening. It turns out that said contacts are supernatural and totally onto it. Biff at the bayou.
Like I said, I liked the idea. Mostly I liked the execution, but I felt like the main character was kind of just sleeping with everyone. She has two lovers, they are almost two sides of a coin. Awesome. But then towards the end she seems to be adding another few to her repertoire… I just want to know how one has that much libido and energy!
But seriously… aliens vs. supernaturals… this idea needs to be run with a little bit further!
