Spencer, Wen. Alien Taste. R. 20061102. other than the title giving away too much it's excellent! an 8. very good near future sf. boy raised by wolves with near supernatural abilities. gangs of feuding aliens trying to take over the earth. excellent PI search, good gunfights, satisfying ending, although it doesn't close up all the loose ends, and there could easily be a sequel. cover looks more high-tech than it is. good characters, good low-level romance, excellent adventure, and finding self story.
