Here’s the latest review of Pretty Pink Planet:
Review by: Vincent Miskell on Oct. 25, 2011 :
If you like your aliens exotic and your humans adventurous, then Pretty Pink Planet is for you. Lori’s mission as an agent of SOESFOL (Search Out and Establish Sentient Forms of Life) almost immediately puts her face to face with an assassin. She is seconds from death—with only the bizarre ocean life of the flamingo-pink planet to help. But can they?
Smith has an uncanny talent for portraying quirky aliens, who are both strange and familiar at the same time—or more precisely, the familiar turns suddenly eerie in this story. Lori’s alien companion and translator, Chiing, is both amusing and seriously mysterious. Warning: once you’ve read Pretty Pink Planet, you’ll want to continue the adventures with Lori and her alien companion Chiing in Hot Yellow Planet, which is also available for science fiction readers who are fascinated by intelligent alien life.
