Book Review-ALIEN SPECIES INTERVENTION-Books 1-3- J.K. Accinni

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

It is rare that I buy a three series e-book or in this case received it for free on an Amazon special. It is also unusual that that series would be a Paranormal, Science Fiction, Thriller which might be okay for young adults--there is a bit of real violence involved. And guess what--I read all three right in a row--I couldn't stop--it is that good!

Book 1— BABY

This part of the series takes place in the past. Baby, an extraterrestrial is sent to Earth on a mission. Unfortunately he has no memory of what that mission was supposed to be. He has an offspring who is not really discussed in this book-but it is assumed that she can take care of herself. A young woman, Nettie who has been forced to marry a man much older then herself finds herself wed to a monster. She manages to escape to her old childhood home in Sussex, NJ. Before she runs away she manages to steal one of her husbands gold coins. Ultimately the husband and his band of hoodlums finds her and murders both Nettie and Baby and the man that Nettie has met along the way. But--Nettie has taken on some of the characteristics of Baby-has had the man. They are all ultimately killed and buried---but are they really dead?

Book 2— ECHO

It is now the future and a really bleak one it is--most people are poor and living subsistence lives in horrible conditions. Scottie and his sister Abby live with their parents in the slums. The father is NO GOOD to put it mildly and finally the Mom decides to take the children and move to a slightly better area--Sussex, NJ. Abbey has to undergo kidney dialysis every day or so and Scottie is kind of a runt and always being picked on by bullies. After the move Scottie, ever the loner, discovers the same rock that Nettie found and also found her gold coin! (Which, by the way, his Mom insisted he keep for his education.) He ultimately sees Echo--Baby's offspring and they ultimately strike up a friendship. Scottie begins to grow the tail and wings that Echo has. Because there was so little money Scottie's Mom takes in boarders--another single Mom with four children. Jose was actually adopted but is as much a part of the family as any of the others. Things really start to heat up when Scottie learns that Jose has also met Echo and is sporting the same tail. Although they try--they can't get Echo to tell them what her mission is. The last sentence of that book will certainly have you running to read the next one!


This book will remind you a bit of Noah's Ark--more then a bit actually. Not too much I can tell you without giving away the plot on this one. But it ends with a boat, some really big animals, some normal humans and Echo and the rest of the changlings as they head out to sea. I noticed that there are already more books completed in this series and you know for a fact that I want to read them and find out what happens!!!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Alien Species Intervention #6609, is an alien apocalyptic saga spanning 200 years from the Prohibition to the distant future. It encompasses tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and acts of unspeakable violence. When you think you’ve figured it out . . . WHAM! You won’t see it coming. Thriller, horror, science fiction and fantasy all in one, the series is a gripping psychological exploration of how the inherent greed and evil of man is dooming planet Earth and its inhabitants.

In Baby, the prequel to the Species Intervention #6609, Netty is a na├»ve teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a prominent citizen during the Prohibition years in Sussex County, New Jersey. After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist husband, traveling back to her parents’ farm, where she rescues an enigmatic and damaged creature named “Baby” with whom she falls in love.

Netty and Baby find happiness and fulfillment until a handsome Italian stranger, Wil, comes into Netty’s life, creating a tense love triangle made more fraught by Netty’s struggle to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her body caused by loving Baby. Baby’s miraculous healing powers on the nature around them can’t be ignored either. The heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story comes as all three face challenges that ultimately lead to transcendence and the discovery of a new world that promises resurrection.

2033. One hundred years have passed since the birth of Baby’s miraculous offspring, Echo. The United States has evolved to a point of politically driven economic collapse.

An abused mother escapes with her two sickly children, Scotty and Abby, from the tenements of Short Hills to the farmland of Sussex County. There she unites with a Latino family who has provided a loving home to Jose, a young Costa Rican boy who has been traumatized by murder and kidnap.

The two families find themselves the subject of the psychotic attention of Armoni, a soul damaged beyond redemption, as their lives become entwined with Echo’s, who is intent on thwarting the efforts of the heinous people who prey on the lives of other creatures. And as the insidious miscreant, Armoni, tracks them down, bringing brutality and violence to all, Netty recruits a heartbroken Abby to mount a mission to rescue the wildlife of Earth before despicable events bring on the specter of Armageddon.

In Armageddon Cometh, the third book in the Alien Species Intervention #6609, Abby plans to abduct the wildlife at the Big Cat Sanctuary under Netty’s guidance by enlisting the help of the charming Italian yacht captain, Cobby, even though this leads to the exposure of hidden changes to her body. Despite her love for Jose, she draws closer to the charming Cobby when Jose departs on his own mission to find his adopted family.

At Bird Key, young Scotty embarks on a romance with the troubled rich girl, Chloe. As strange connections and revealed identities collide with political intrigue and murder, a traumatized Chloe and Jose scramble in a frantic dash to escape, wildlife and all, to Tampa Bay. Joining them are Kenya, a sassy and striking pregnant black girl, and Peter, their trusted attorney, who has been left scarred and emotionally ruined by their nemesis, Armoni. In the climax and chaos of the escape ahead of cops and devastation from the sky, it soon becomes clear that Scotty might be the mysterious “One” as foretold in an omen.

Warning: Alien Species Intervention #6609 contains violence that a sensitive reader may find confronting.

I love sci fi, but haven't read this series. It's always a good side when someone says they had to binge read the series rather than spacing it out.
