Are the characters believable?

Yes. Although most of the characters are aliens, they have personalities that you would find in people. Eva is certainly a believable character, with her passionate affection for everyone.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book? 

A 10. This book is definitely a sequel that complements the first book. It kept me sitting on the edge of my seat and is packed with adventure, suspense and friendship. Its message is that you should find out who you really are and stay true to yourself.
