***********
 If an alien passed you on the street, would you know?

Something white hot was streaking across the blue April sky, pursued by a troubled trail of white smoke. Andromeda Brown had a brief sense of something enormous and powerful tumbling end over end. Even though it was far too high to hear, she could almost imagine its roar as it ripped through the heavens, arcing gracefully towards the horizon.

Andromeda sat quietly at her desk and waited for instructions. Whatever else happened today, at least there would be no detention....


Except for an unfortunate attachment to numbers, Andromeda Brown is an ordinary girl with an ordinary life at a perfectly ordinary school. Until, that is, a spaceship crash-lands near her home in Chicago, and circumstances throw her into contact with folks whose zip code is, quite literally, out of this world. Her new acquaintances are in trouble and desperately need her help. They are frantically looking for a freakish, shape-shifting alien scientist who has been hanging out on planet Earth for, well, ages. And hard as it is to track down someone who can change appearance at will, Andromeda's difficulties are multiplied by the fact that she and her friends are not the only ones on the shifter's trail. Darker forces are at work.
For if the shifter's knowledge falls into the wrong hands, humanity is in for a very bad day.....

REVIEW
An ordinary girl, ordinary life , ordinary school until Andromeda Brown  is in contact with her parents whose, zip code is, believe this, out of this world.
 Her friends need help. They are desperately looking for a shape shifter alien scientist.  Evidently he has been hiding out on Earth for like ever.
It's hard enough to track a shape shifter but Andromeda  find out she and her friends are not alone in the search for the shifter.  EVIL is at work.  If the knowledge the shifter holds gets in the wrong hands, humanity is in for some big, big trouble.
I just couldn't get into the story.  I have to say the characters were well described, especially the aliens. The story moved along but for some reason it just didn't click for me. I felt it was just another sci-fi casting aliens.  It needed a little different plot line to distinguish it from other ones.  I would recommend that you go get a copy for yourself and read.  Gather your own opinion, since the view of a book lies in the reader.
If you met an alien on the street, would you recognize him?  Depends on the alien.

I would give this book 3 STARS.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE SHIFTER'S TRAIL from the author Adam Alexander and OutSkirtsPress for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.
