Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
The story idea is cool—who doesn’t want to read about a highly advanced alien race coming to Earth for help? The story itself, though, reads like a book report. I’m reminded of the principle rule of fiction writing: Show, don’t just Tell.


Would I recommend it: If you don’t think you’ll mind the prose, give it a go. The story is decent.


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Mylea tells the story of a civilization that has achieved incredible technical and scientific marvels. Yet, now, they appear to be helpless to save themselves from the total destruction of their planet by an approaching black hole.

The only apparent solution to their problem appeared to be here, on Earth. Their arrival could cause a sensation on Earth if it were widely known. The mission must be accomplished with the least possible contact with Earthlings. Can they trust the Earthlings they contact? Can the Earthlings trust them? Will they succeed or will Mylea be forever lost in the dark reaches of outer space?
