All the Angels were Jewish by Kevin E. Ready
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Susan’s life has just started to return to some semblance of normalcy after both of her parents die within a 6 month time frame when she is shocked to learn that her Aunt Rachel has died as well, and she must fly out to her aunt’s home in New York immediately.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The writing style is terse and to the point, much like the scientists, and I actually would have enjoyed a little more drawn out story. However it is an undeniably well researched story and it does leave you wanting more and hoping to jump to the next book in a hurry. It seems like it could be a great sci fi series!
