In Stan Schatt’s latest Science Fiction novel, a dying astronaut reveals a secret that blows the lid on a government treaty with extraterrestrials while other alien races have come to Earth with their own agendas. Meanwhile an ancient alien race with a base on the Moon makes plans that could spell doom.
25 year old EX-SEAL, Jack Starling, has plenty of his own problems, but he can’t help falling in love with the beautiful woman he rescues after she is brutally attacked. He learns how dangerous it can be to fall in love with someone who is not human who has her own plans for him.
Jack finds himself pitted against aliens far stronger and far more cunning than any human enemies. Once he learns what the aliens have planned for him and for Earth, he must race against time before it is too late.
There's plenty of car chases, government conspiracies and cool gadgets but what I found the best was that there wasn't just one kind of alien. There were all different, and unique, in their own respects.
The plot, though, got a little weird and unconvincing at times. It almost felt like the author had focused on one goal and in the midst of it, changed his mind and went for another one. The characters also contradicted themselves once or twice. It made them hard to latch onto, so I focused on the action instead, which was fantastic and written quite well. The twist at the end was a good way to conclude the story as well.
