Reviews of Alien Affairs by Scott Skipper

Cenarth Fox reviewed on Aug. 18, 2017

Alien Affairs has a simple plot. The Roswell incident really happened. The 1947 creatures from outer space crashed in New Mexico, and some ordinary folk discovered the bodies and spacecraft debris. One alien was captured alive.
A guru studied a piece of the rescued equipment and discovered the language of the visitors. He taught this alien dialect to his young niece, Carrie Player. She grew up being the only human who could speak Alien. What a player!
Fast-forward to today, and three alien spacecraft are heading our way to wipe out humanity by making us sterile.
Carrie, who works for the Alien Affairs Department, is able to contact one of the travelling aliens via by phone.
Thus begins a conversation, a relationship between an Earthling and an Alien. They text even sext one another.
But the issue is super serious and the fate for Earthlings is grim. They scramble to get military might into space. The President goes public and the world knows what’s happening. Panic stations everywhere. People waving placards with The End is Nigh are taken seriously.
Will the three spaceships be destroyed or will they destroy mankind?
Scott Skipper uses characters who are clever yet ordinary people who race to save the planet. By allowing one of the aliens and a human to become almost an item, understanding the plans of the combatants and their actions is simple. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to follow the rocket science.
Skipper uses dialogue to propel the story and build a slow-burning tension. He has achieved a perfect ending in that it is a total surprise, and leaves you asking questions about what really happened.
