I was given an early release copy of this trilogy in exchange for an unbiased review of the story. Thank you to the author and publisher for this opportunity to read and review this book. I am not typically a reader of the sci-fi genre. However, I found myself enthralled with the concept of this story. I loved how the story was set up. The idea of aleins living in the water was at first alarming to me, but as I read on, I discovered that they weren't harmful to humans. I enjoyed the fact that the author gave the perspective of the humans and the aliens. I found myself actually really enjoying the story line. I really enjoyed that the three books came together so that I didn't have to wait for the next to come out!
