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

Review: 2019.163 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This story is really about Graeyan and Alec trying to reconcile and atone for their past. True wants to help them do that, and even though she has her own agenda, the deal seems fair enough.

Con: Exactly what does True get out of this? Where are those eggs supposed to go? Back to the homeworld? To accomplish what, exactly?

If this is a hive mind, why all this attachment to specific individuals?

Obviously it’s extremely unlikely that aliens could eat human flesh or vice versa.
