This book started out slowly, building up Tori as the main character and focusing on her human life - friends, family, long time boyfriend. A chance encounter changes all of that and it is suddenly revealed that she is far from human. At first I struggled with how well Tori and her friend Kylie coped with this revelation - they just took it in their stride. There is definitely a parallel to the Superman/Supergirl concept, with an alien baby sent to earth from a waring planet for safety, but thankfully this story does deviate and follow its own path despite those initial similarities.
The character development is good, including the connection between Tori and the guys (Beckett, Dale, Cooper and Maddox). I did actually like that Dale wasn't as drawn in as the other guys and questioned if Tori was the child of the prophesy given she didn't display the signs. Tori was very much in denial of her origin and powers, and tried to retain as much of her humanity as possible until an attack on her family forced her to fully acknowledge who she was.
I wasn't sure how I was going to like the storyline with Tori's boyfriend, Jensen, given the immediate and soul-connecting bond she experienced with the 4 guys. I did like how it was written, and that despite the connection and every attempt from Cooper to change her mind, there was no cheating. I feel the storyline with Jensen is not yet finished, and I'm sure Kylie will have a bigger part to play in the next book too - and maybe her conspiracy theorist brother too.
Looking forward to the next book, and would recommend this series as an intriguing alien on earth RH.
