Publisher's summary

Crashing into the streets of London, she fell to an Earth under siege by a mysterious race known as the Otherworlders. But as foreign as the aliens are, so is she to those who find her.

Thomas Laybourne, a tinker and weapons designer, finds the unconscious star girl and takes her back to his flat. Aided by his friend, Doctor Hunter, and a grumpy clothier named Mattie, he begins trying to determine who she is and why she has chosen the darkest days in human history to arrive.

With most of the world under alien control, only Britain remains as the vestige of human resistance; but the end is approaching, unless Laybourne's latest weapon can stop them. As he finishes up the weapon, his attention is drawn more and more to the beauty and amazing powers of the star girl.

Can they stop their advance and save the empire in time? Or is humanity destined to end beneath the dark clouds of the aliens?

The girl who fell to earth

What did you love best about Keely?

It was an interesting take on the alien invasion theme. This should be followed up with more exploration of the secondary antagonist, the xenoforming that the aliens have already done. But even though it is short is is action packed and I feel it came to successful conclusion. It leaves you wanting more, not disappointed that nothing is resolved.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think that Thomas is a very well thought out character who allows us to discover Keely as he grapples with her alien nature.

Any additional comments?

The story is tight with great amounts of information revealed in short description that flow with the action.
