3.0 out of 5 stars Who to trust in First Contact 10 April 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Susan Grant is an author that definitely uses what she knows as the foundation for her work, then builds upon it an entire new world – or more than one new world.
Jordan Cady is first officer of a United Airlines flight on a routine flight when their aircraft is captured. They are taken aboard an alien space ship, apparently the only survivors from a comet destroying the earth. The captian dies of a heart attack soon after, and now it is Jordan that the survivors look to for leadership. On board the alien vessel, Kào was rescued / captured himself when he was only three and has been raised by his adoptive father Moray, who is in charge of the ship. Kào has recently been imprisoned by the Talagars and tortured. Since his return to the Alliance, Kào has found himself unable to connect with others.
Grant really has a good grasp on the concept of ‘alien abduction’ – the practacalities of the various emotions – panic, the dawning ‘we are not alone’ feeling, anger, fright, survivor guilt, helplessness – as well as of the situation in which Jordan and the others on board flight 58 might find themselves – the language barriers, technologies and lack of operations knowledge of even the seemingly simple things, the risk of disease etc that both new races face. This was a very enjoyable aspect of the book and gave great depth to the work as a whole. It certainly deepened the emerging relationship between Jordan and Kào. The conflict between their differing loyalties is well told, but also resolves itself as they acknowledge, at least internally, their feelings for each other. They come to trust each other despite their situation, and having made that bond of trust, it holds true.

5.0 out of 5 stars a super Sci-Fi romance 3 Jun 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Susan Grant is former Air-Force pilot, now flies 747s - where does she find the time to write such fantastic adventures? Not content to rest on her pilot laurels, she turns out some amazing Sci-Fi/Futuristic Romances that are fresh and skillfully crafted. She only has a half-dozen or so books out, but already has made a name for herself. Her current 2176 series - "The Legend of Banzai Maguire", the lead book in the series - is a fresh, original story, and like "Contact" draws heavily on her pilot experience to add rich substance to her stories.
"Contact" has an intriguing premise, along the lines of the movie "Millennium" - aliens abducting people from planes to save them. In the movie, the planes were boarded and the "to be" victims of plane crashes were removed and spirited off to
save them. Grant goes one-step farther, having a whole 747, passengers and all swallowed up by an alien spacecraft The Survivor. From fright, the pilot dies, so it is up to the co-pilot, Jordon, to keep 300 passengers sane and safe. At first, they fear it is a terrorists attack, but soon the enormity of snatching a whole 747 causes them to comprehend, nothing in this world could do that. Following Sherlock Holmes' rule of thumb, they are left with the unbelievable, but indisputable fact that aliens have abducted them.
Kao is the alien in charge of handling the Earthlings. He finally convinces Jordan Earth is no more, hit by the impact of several huge meteors, it was destroyed and the Survivor snatched the plane to keep them from perishing as well. It's not easy. The passengers have to learn a new language, face the crippling grief of losing all their love ones, but Jordon keeps them moving forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a winner 5 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book won the 2003 RITA for best paranormal romance and it deserved it. I have read all Susan Grant's other novels except her latest 'The Star Princess', and she is, in my opinion, one of the best paranormal romance authors around. In this book she uses her technical knowledge of aviation to create a gripping tale. For the first quarter of the book, it could almost be a straight sci-fi novel, and when the romance gets started she never falls into the mushy sort of writing that characterises some romance novels. But she still manages to make the romance central to the story without losing the excitement of the rest of the plot. Her hero and heroine are sympathetic and likable, her secondary characters interesting and believable, and she keeps you guessing about the plot right up to the end. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal romance. I am looking forward to reading the Star Princess when I get it.
