Started this one today and its coming along. I would like to know how well this opening hooks.
quote:Carl Baker watched the blue-skinned Flarikam float over the road and land near the human foreman. Most of the workers averted their eyes. Carl knew that wouldn’t matter. The alien conquerors were technically blind. They couldn’t make eye contact because they had no eyes to make contact with. “Watch it buddy,” the man next to him said. Learning names was pointless these days so Carl never bothered. “The overseers might read your mind and stop your heart.” “The Flarikam can’t read minds,” Carl said as he went back to trimming the hedge. “They’re telekinetic, not telepathic.” “Then how come when my brother tried to shoot one he fell over dead before he got close enough to pull out his gun?”
