Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The creature wants its freedom, and it gets it in a most unexpected way. The human scientists don't realize that there are two creatures mixed together, nor that one of them is capable of consuming them.

Con: Or did the Enforcer just show up in a different body? It's a bit confusing.

An annoyance is that the story often uses the language of science in meaningless ways. E.g.  Ξ”Ξ»/Ξ» = 0.314, which doesn't really mean anything, or the description of using "energy" to escape the event horizon of a black hole.
