I received a copy of LIFEBOAT by A. B. Shepherd in exchange for an honest review. I had previously read her other story, THE BEACON, and enjoyed it immensely, so I was excited to dive into LIFEBOAT. I found it coll that it involves aliens. I don’t normally read about them – honestly, I can’t recall the last alien book I did read. For that fact alone, this was refreshing, but it is more than that. I found the poetic in nature and thought provoking. The story sucked me in. Cass is a character you will keep rooting for.
