What exactly is a BIALIEN? Is it some sort of new dance or a recipe for a new exotic dish? Well according to author Vlane Carter, a BIALIEN is Jaden Marino or at least that is what he becomes in the book The BIALIEN Trilogy, an Alien of Two Worlds (volume 1; part 1). Belonging to the ever popular genre of science fiction this book delivers an attention grabbing science fiction story of the fantastical adventures of central character Jaden Marino. BIALIEN … volume 1, is the first in the trilogy of science fiction books that gives the reader’s imagination a real workout. Creative and inventive from the onset the world of Jaden Marino (and the worlds he experiences) are well detailed and chock full of interesting science fiction steeped ideals.
Author Vlane Carter has created the adventures of a lifetime within the confines of the life of nineteen year old Jaden Marino. As the story opens the reader is taken in by Jaden’s run for his life, he is being pursued by the military under the false pretense that he stole an experimental plane however, the truth of the matter is that Jaden discovered a landed UFO and the wicked government wants to keep it a secret and shut Jaden up permanently. While he is running Jaden goes back to the UFO and finds protection from the evil military and thus begins his journey to becoming a BIALIEN. It is through the use of nanotechnology that Jaden eventually becomes a BIALIEN. Jaden’s experiences and encounters with alien life forms and their advanced technology proves to be a perfect fit, as he easily adapts to many “alien” types of experiences including, out of body experiences like traveling and observing via a “nanoeye”, telepathic communication, using x-ray vision and camaraderie with other alien life forms. As Jaden is being watched and aided by a friendly race of aliens, the Andromedians they become so impressed with Jaden that they charge him with the responsibility to return to earth and unite earth so that earth can fight an impending evil alien invasion that comes in the form of another evil alien race called the Darclonians. The saga continues in BIALIEN series Volume 1; book 2 and BIALIEN series Volume 1; book 3. The series is continued thereafter in Volume ll; parts 1, 2, 3 and Volume lll; parts 1, 2, 3.
Overall this is an intriguing story that brings to mind some of the other great science fiction adventures of the past such as Star Wars. While this book does make for a good read there are a few editing issues, such as misspellings, confusion of word tenses and spacing issues. Also these books are categorized as “graphic” novels although there is little in the way of actual graphics presented in the book however, the ones that scattered throughout the books are awesome. Another interesting point about this trilogy is the author has determined that his writing the books in the present tense which allows the reader to experience the novel “… as if they were watching a movie”. I found this a little confusing initially but as I read on, I found myself getting past that issue as I became immersed in the story. I would recommend the BIALIEN trilogy to any science fiction fans that like to get lost in adventure.
