5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced, with lots of twists and turns., 8 April 2014
This review is from: Buffalito Destiny (Adventures of the Amazing Conroy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I have to admit that when I first heard the premise of this series - an interstellar performing hypnotist and his alien animal, which looks like a miniature buffalo, can eat literally anything, and excretes oxygen instead of poo - I sighed, rolled my eyes, and said "You've got to be frickin' having me on".

Then I read one of the stories. And I was blown away by how good it was.

This is not your typical science-fiction series. The author is an expert in cognitive psychology and psycholinguistics as well as an accomplished hypnotist. All of the stories in the series contain highly interesting, diverse alien species, each with their own unique physiology, culture, and psychology - as well as a healthy dose of sly humour.

This novel continues the Adventures of the Amazing Conroy, which started in the anthology Buffalito Buffet. (If you haven't read that anthology already, I highly recommend it as an appetizer before digging into this one.)

Having created a multi-billion dollar empire from leasing highly-versatile utility buffalitos, Conroy decides to do a good turn for Mother Earth by volunteering his herd's services in cleaning up the world's worst toxic dump site. But there are hostile, opposing forces at work: a major xenophobic eco-terrorist organization is out to stop his good deed any way they can - up to and including murdering Conroy, Reggie, and anyone else who gets in their way. It's up to Conroy and his unique abilities with psychology to save himself, the buffalitos, and the planet.

As in the short stories, the novel is made even more enjoyable with numerous descriptions of fabulous, mouth-watering gourmet dishes.

I also recommend following-up this tasty main dish with Buffalito Contingency for dessert.
