3 1/2 stars. This one was something a little different for me. I usually don't read about aliens, etc. It might be right up your alley. It was pretty good. If you are wondering what my bookshelf "take-flight" is, that means it involves some kind of flying. Could be anything from airplanes, to dragons, to angels. In this case it's a spaceship, and the hero makes a good instuctor!
