This is classic Wehunt. I've read everything he's had published so far, and none of them fail to evoke a dark and terrifying world, told in exceptional prose. I liked the use of Chopin's Nocturnes and Orion as symbols of Miki's conflicting nature: the prior her safe and sane home life where she's a daughter and a child, the latter her selfish impulses and desire for supremacy over her little brother. I wasn't quite sure if the threat was aliens or dark monstrosities from space, though I suppose its irrelevant. They did their deed for Miki, and the reader, however I chose to interpret them. Overall, a great selection and another win for the Shock Totem library.
