, by Elrod Stanton is a science fiction thriller that takes you through the plains of East Africa where entire herds of animals are being slaughtered. Professor Jacob "Buddy" Brown has taken a trip to video the illegal slaughtering that is taking place across East Africa by poachers. On his plane ride over from Georgia, U.S.A., he meets Molana, a very large African woman whom he can't seem to get away from, no matter where he goes.
As their paths keep crossing, Molana and Buddy end up taking a journey together with Molana's niece Lil, to find out who, or what is killing all of the animals. What they discover is that it isn't just animals who are being hunted.
What I enjoyed about this book is that the concept of the alien beings was different than what is mainstream. The technology wasn't hard to understand or follow, and the whole premise was educating as well as entertaining. The only problem I had with the book were a few "cheesy" moments, as well as the ending. Though I liked the overall ending, I felt that it could have been a little bit better developed.
* There is sexual content and violence in this book.
On a scale of 1-4, I give this book a 3.
This book was published by Outskirts Press.
