Description:

Trillions of planets in the Cosmos, and he picks Earth for safe refuge and his new home; a place with religious idealism and extremism, racism, war, nuclear weapons, and as far as aliens go...well, go figure! But Té’Lal has an agenda, and while NASA, the military establishment and the powers that be are challenged as to what to do with the strange visitor, he presents his case, and the world is about to change. A speculative and existential fiction thriller that challenges the very bedrock of our culture.

"An alien comes to Earth and reveals himself to Mia, a woman whose life mission is to prove that extraterrestrials are real. The story flips back and forth between present day and 20 years earlier when Té’Lal first comes to Earth. The book causes the reader to wonder:
Could there be life out there on other planets?
If so, will our planet ever be under attack?
Would it be possible for an alien to form a romantic bond with an Earthling?
I never read Sci-Fi, so the story was a little outside of my element, but overall, it was an enjoyable story and a quick read."
- Kelly Schuknecht

"It is a deeply philosophical tale which delves into some of our most carefully guarded shibboleths. This story raises issue with the impact of religions on our planet, and its peoples. It raises issue with the concentration of wealth, power, and military power specifically, in the hands of a few sociopathic individuals. It raises issue with the secretive manner in which governments treat the issue of alien visitations. And it offers a realistic view of what the tenets of a new culture of peace and prosperity might entail. In all my 83 years I have never read any book, including the Christian and Judaic versions of the Bible, which offers so much depth in the guise of a novel. Does the philosophy, does the criticism, does the suggested manner of dealing with our current situation have flaws. I will leave that to you... Nothing is falsified, nothing is set forth in concrete. It offers much to anyone. It is most certainly due an award of five stars, and if there were a higher award it would merit that too. Well done Real Laplaine. I hope to see a sequel." - Berk Rourke, author

 

Reviews:
"The author sent me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, so here it is…
I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would when I first started it.

"As I started this story, I had no inkling of what it would entail. This is a tale of an "alien" coming to earth, his first appearance, the stir it caused, the possibility of war with an alien culture far advanced beyond earth's paltry defenses. But it is far more than that. It is a deeply philosophical tale which delves into some of our most carefully guarded shibboleths. This story raises issue with the impact of religions on our planet, and its peoples. It raises issue with the concentration of wealth, power, and military power specifically, in the hands of a few sociopathic individuals. It raises issue with the secretive manner in which governments treat the issue of alien visitations. And it offers a realistic view of what the tenets of a new culture of peace and prosperity might entail. In all my 83 years I have never read any book, including the Christian and Judaic versions of the Bible, which offers so much depth in the guise of a novel. Does the philosophy, does the criticism, does the suggested manner of dealing with our current situation have flaws. I will leave that to you, the individual reader, to decide for yourself. Nothing is imposed by this story. Nothing is falsified, nothing is set forth in concrete. It offers much to anyone. It is most certainly due an award of five stars, and if there were a higher award it would merit that too. Well done Real Laplaine. I hope to see a sequel." - Berk Rourke, author
