Review: The Visitors (Alien contact scifi)

Unusual and vivid contact story

Out in a field watching a meteor shower, Jen Taverson hears a peculiar humming and witnesses a bizarre display of lights close to her on a dark road. The next day she is visited by a man claiming to come from another reality. Unnerved, Jen begins a determined search for answers and finds unexpected support from a photographer who has his own history with bizarre happenings in the area.

As the novel unfolds, it quickly becomes apparent that the author is quite familiar with Pine Bush, NY, and surrounding region as well as the strange UFO sightings for which the small town is famous. The writing is clear, clean, and well-crafted. The love story that develops alongside the otherworldly encounters is superbly done. I was especially intrigued by the glowing torus and dimensional portal described near the end of the book. If you enjoy well-thought-out speculations about ET contact, this story is an excellent read.

Review: Retrieval (Alien contact scifi)

Riveting tale of alien presence

A diner in the desert full of townies. A secret military base a few miles away. Streaks across the sky and strange objects strewn over the desert. Sounds like something we’ve all heard before, right? Well, it’s not. This story is completely unique. It captivated me from the first pages and kept me reading until the wee hours for several nights. It stuck in my mind during the day while I was working and lingered long after I finished it. If that isn’t a good read, what is?

This fast-paced story is all about the characters. It alternates between the first-person perspective of the woman who runs the diner and the third-person drama and tension among the odd individuals aboard an alien starbreaker vessel whose mission is to retrieve pieces of one of their ships. Gillian, the owner of the diner, is reluctantly pulled into the bizarre search by the aggressive military who covet the alien technology, but she finds unexpected support from Gabriel, her new short-order cook, an enigmatic man who is more than he appears to be.

The story gives us a spectacular “what-if” proposition about other-dimensional alien visitors, fascinating in its own right, but ultimately, it’s a tale about choice, respect, and love. A fantastic book that I’m sure I will remember as a favorite and re-read again in the future.

Review: Force Field (Alien contact scifi)

Intriguing other dimensional contact.

This is the third book I’ve read by this talented author that deals with other-worldly contact. In this story, a man appears at dusk in the high desert of California and steps in front of a car. Kate, the driver, a psychiatrist at a nearby institute, stops to pick him up and it quickly becomes clear that this gentle man is far more than he appears to be. His goal is to help her shift the way she perceives reality and he involves himself in her world, even allowing himself to be swept into the misguided experiments of her employer in order to lead Kate to new insights.

The story looks at possibilities beyond conventional scientific diagnosis of schizophrenia and explores possible layers of reality and our ability to exist in multiple places as once. The book will appeal to those interested in pushing parameters of understanding, especially those acquainted with the philosophies and concepts taught by Seth and Jane Roberts. Can unknown realities become known? Hell yes – with courage, intention, and choice, there is no doubt. Good story. Lots of food for thought.

Review: Hidden in Stone (Mystery)

A delightful read!

Englishwoman Honoria Quinn becomes the sudden new owner of a house left to her by her aunt in upstate New York. Quite taken by the place, she is immediately swept into the secrets of the small town when she sees the body of a man who’s been murdered. Naturally inquisitive and independent, Ria digs into the mystery as she makes new friends, encounters oddities, and finds herself the target of unknown harassment.

The story is intricately woven, well crafted, and keeps the reader in suspense. The writing flows beautifully and the dialog is crisp and clear. The clues of the mystery are deftly laid out with many possible avenues opening up as Ria explores her new home and acquaintances. Ria herself is bright and spunky, and the rest of the townsfolk are quirky and fun with their own parts to play in the drama.

The author brings out an intimate knowledge of the Catskill region in just the right amount of depth. Her personal love for the area shines through, just as it did in The Visitors, and draws the reader in, giving a real feel for being there. I was pleased to learn that this is just the first of the Ria Quinn mysteries. I look forward to tagging along with her in more Shokan Falls adventures!
