My Thoughts

So intergalactic intrigue and invading Aliens is not something I would normally choose to read. 
Sci/fi generally doesn't do it for me.
However I quite enjoyed this story. 
I connected with the characters, the storyline was interesting, I had a healthy dislike for the relevant troublemakers and I was entertained.

I did find the choice of body image for these aliens a little weird, I mean upright standing humanoid Cats and Wolves....O-Kay?!

But like I said, this really isn't my preferred genre to read. 
I'm sure that for the science fiction lovers out there this will be right up their alley.
A really good 3.5 star read all the same :]
