"Rogers writes with confidence and authority about everything from African politics to Houston police procedure to Mexican drug gangs. There's plenty of action, and the book is populated with interesting characters from political figures to tattoo artists. Check this one out when you're looking for a real slam-bang change of pace." -Bill Crider, author of the Dan Rhodes mystery series
On a desperate mission to save his entire race from extinction, Emissary Ruell travels to Earth equipped with his two most powerful bargaining currencies -- health and longevity -- hoping to convince the most powerful leader in the free world that collaboration can save both of their civilizations. Having no way to communicate directly with humans, Ruell must inhabit President Addison Hale's body to carry out his mission.
He quickly discovers, however, that humans are more complex and volatile than anticipated. Only after admitting defeat does he encounter Kirk Longshadow, and ordinary cop who might be Ruell's last chance.

I give it - 4/5
My review - I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Some parts where a bit slow for me but then as I reached the end I really found it interesting.
This book has Sci-Fi, action, drama and more and I love my Sci-Fi so I jumped at the chance to read and review this book and I'm so glad I did!
I really enjoyed Chris's style of writing as it was very different from other books I have read before and it was nice to have something different. She really did well with this story and I'm defiantly going to re-read it soon.
If you love your Sci-Fi I suggest reading this! Yes it took me awhile to get into it but I'm so glad I didn't just give up and carried on reading it.
I really can't wait to read some more of Chris's work.
about the author
Chris's Website / Goodreads / Facebook
Chris Rogers was born in Texas and raised in the days of EC Comics and B horror flicks that could chill you down to your funny bones. She resides in a small community within commute of the four major Texas metropolises, where she ghostwrites business books and memoirs while turning out her own novels and short stories. Chris has taught mystery writing at the Rice University School of Continuing Studies, the University of Houston and in private master classes. Her students have received numerous awards and acknowledgements for their works. After a career in graphic design, Chris became a writer the easy way: She read voraciously and filled blank pages with drivel until her fingers cramped and her brain defected. Eventually, she learned to craft a decipherable sentence. Author of the Dixie Flannigan series, Bitch Factor, Rage Factor, Chill Factor and Slice of Life, Chris has published stories and essays in, among others, Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and Writer s Digest.
