This book was better than the previous two. The story, although about four of Damia's children, in different stories, flowed together quite nicely. The first two stories came to abrupt halts, but the last two were much more intertwined. All and all not a bad read. And only one or two of these had the side romance going on. Which was a nice change. The book concentrated more on the aliens, the good ones and the bad ones. Although I tend to get annoyed with the good aliens being cute and fuzzy types and the bad ones being insects.
