I enjoyed it and was curious about the original storyline, which was based around the idea of an alien life form finding sanctuary with a woman (Netty) on the run from her villainous husband.
I liked the way Netty was introduced and I respected the way she turned her life around after what she had been through. The alien (or baby) was well described and clever, if slightly freaky. The introduction of a love interest also worked well, even if the outcome was a bit predictable.
There were many ideas in this plot to think about - power, abuse, love, forced marriage, devotion. And there were homemade fruit pies - they made me hungry!
The reason for a 3 is that the culmination of the book left me confused. After so much effort had been expended on the need to preserve life it all went haywire (I don't want to say more since it would be a spoiler).
So overall, an interesting read, but the ending could have been better thought out.
What an amazing story that is so unique and refreshing you will be looking forward to what happens next! The characters the Author creates are so detailed and the story she weaves heart wrenching! The hardships of a young girl trying to find her way back from a horrible abusive marriage is a story in itself, but when coupled with an extraterrestrial visitor that becomes her reason to survive, will have you engrossed until the very end.
Jeannette or Netty, is a young poor farm girl living in the Sussex County community of New Jersey during prohibition. With stars in her eyes, she and her family welcome the attentions of an aspiring lawyer named Robert, who even though is much older then her, will give her a secure marriage and safety for her future away from the derelict farm they live in. But not every storybook wedding has a storybook ending and soon everything and everyone that Netty cares for has died or been murdered. She herself is locked into a prison of a mansion, continuously raped and abused by her husband. Soon she finds out a secret that will have her fleeing in the dead of night, returning to her life on the farm. Struggling to bring life back into the farm, Netty chances upon a bigger secret that will have her doubting her own eyes. When Baby comes into her life, everything turns golden, her life, her farm, even the pies she bakes. Things couldn't get any better. But she was wrong and soon love comes into her life too in the most unexpected way in Wil, a young man looking to make his own way in life. Their budding romance evolves and Netty realizes that in order to go forward in life she will need to finally face her past and remove Robert totally from her life. But Robert has other ideas and soon Netty realizes she has underestimated how powerful Robert has become and the length of which he will go to silence her. In a twist of fate ending only a Sci-Fi thriller Author could write, we see greed turn into vengeance, vengeance turn into murder, and murder turn into something never before seen by human eyes... you will have to read it to see it!
A great start to the series and definitely has wet my appetite to see how the Author continues this story from here!
Species Intervention #6609 Book One
An interested sci-fi book with a bit of romance thrown in. A very unique storyline that seems incredibly realistic at times - I certainly forget Baby wasn't from this world!
Nettie is naïve in the beginning, and on her wedding night is beaten into submission by her husband then locked away from the world. She eventually escapes after finding out her family have died and returns to her childhood home but is drawn to the cave where Baby is. In the cave Baby heals Nettie, and this sets off a chain of events that will end in her transforming. She takes him home, and they soon settle into a routine together.
Months later, after her land is flourishing and Nettie is truly coming into herself, she comes across a beaten Wil. Taking him to home to help him, they soon get to know each other. Will eventually finds out about Baby, and they become a family. Eventually Nettie's husband makes a re-appearance, and the true reason behind their marriage comes to light.
The book is well written, and with so many twists and turns will keep you gripped. Very imaginative, this book will appeal to many types, not just sci-fi / paranormal fans.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
