H.A.L.F.: The Makers by Natalie Wright

Could you go to an alien world and fit in? Would you like to be used as a test subject for the gray ones?  What's worse, your boyfriend got left behind.  What hope do you have for survival?  This author gives us a story that answers some of those questions.

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  You can find a copy on Amazon now.

Erika is seventeen and is learning about love.  She has a special relationship with Tex, a hybrid human and robot.  She loves Jack who got left behind.  And she appreciates Ian, another male friend.  When she regains consciousness after the kidnapping, she is in a dark place and unable to move.  She eventually realizes that Ian is there.  But Tex and the doctor who created him are not.  They're all prisoners and the jailer is another gray one but much smaller and part human.  It only does what it's told.  It has no choice.

This is a complex sci fi story with lots of different components.  They've been taken into the future through time travel.  The aliens inject them with a virus that can kill them.  They give Erika the antidote but not Ian.  So her first quest is to get the medicine before Ian dies.

While she's working on that, the queen of the grays is working on Tex.  She wants him for new breeding stock.  He desires her sexually and she shows him how they connect telepathically and have a hive mentality.  If he joins her, he'll be revered as her mate and will be part of their community.  But he's been with humans for a long time and he's confused.

Jack is back on earth fighting to release the military soldier who ordered his death.  Life is complicated on earth, too.  

This is a busy story with multiple plots that keeps you reading.  This is the second in this series I've read so far and I haven't been disappointed with either.  I hope the next will tie the story up, but there's more danger coming.  This earth of the future is very dangerous from its own occupants to the predators in space...

Hi Becky - Thanks for stopping by today. Right now I'm working on character development, world building & outlining of the rest of the H.A.L.F. series. I'm also working on notes for a 5-book fantasy series I'll be starting after I've finished H.A.L.F. (working title is The Dragon Cycle) - and working on a romance story that takes place in 19th century Paris inspired by my trip to Paris. So I'm busy! Lots of stories :-D
