Alien Whispers: Conflict and Communion is released
November 3, 2022, saw the publication of the exciting third novel in the Milijun series: ‘Alien Whispers: Conflict and Communion’.
Here is a brief overview:
The battle for the minds and hearts of humans is on…
A hundred years after her abduction to the alien planet Glieze, Laura Sinclair returns to Earth on a mission to discover what happened to her long-lost husband. But she finds the planet in turmoil under the oppressive regime of the authoritarian Tellurians. Humans are confined to the surface of their world and all extraterrestrial activity is forbidden.
Laura is a member of an ancient organization, now led by her son, Jason, which pioneered alien collaboration. From their secretive Martian base, they must find a way to free mankind from brutal tyranny. But one dangerous man stands in their way, a man who’ll stop at nothing to achieve his domination of Earth.
Weapons of mass destruction have been forbidden on the planet for a century, but something strange is happening on the moon—and alien insurgents stand ready to take advantage of the chaos. The future of humankind hangs in the balance. With her alien allies and members of Earth’s Underground, Laura must find a way to defeat both the renegade aliens and the overwhelming might of the Tellurian Empire.
The stage is set for an electrifying showdown that will decide the future of the Earth and that of the entire universe.
And a couple of questions from an interview with New in Books:
What scene in your book was your favorite to write?
I really enjoyed scripting the Prologue. It serves to link the previous two novels in the series, and also hints at what is to come, thereby hopefully priming the reader’s interest and imagination.
Outside that, I loved the scene when the villain of the piece, Damien Dayananda, actually realizes that aliens are for real!
If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
To maintain and nurture a sense of wonder at the universe we inhabit. Have the courage to think outside the square. Don’t just leave it to the philosophers. People like you, people like me—we can discover new worlds.
In Milijun for example, Laura Sinclair is a single mother who is taken out of her comfort zone and thrust into an eerie out-of-this-world experience. She faces impossible odds. And she has a teenage son to boot! Yet, remarkably, she survives and thrives.
