In 2040, a spaceship lands in Jamaica with six aliens aboard—two from Beta-Earth, four from Cerapin-Earth. Four of the aliens have the same father, "The Blind Alien" from our planet, Alpha-Earth.
Twenty years in the future, the aliens will encounter a planet decimated by the effects of global warming and the devastating waves of weaponized plagues released by the Everlasting Caliphate, the largest network of Islamic terrorists ever assembled.
After decades of all this destruction, how will Alpha-Earth react to the news we are not alone and that other earths worship other gods unknown on our planet? How can we repress the news even after hundreds of Jamaicans share videos of the historic landing all over the world? How can the aliens find a place for themselves when they become hunted fugitives on the run in the American wilderness?
In this stand-alone addition to the Beta-Earth Chronicles, meet an entirely new cast of characters. Join them as they escape human persecution across the former United States in a surprising and deadly chase. Who will give them shelter and protection from a frightened planet?
"Author Wesley Britton is back and better than ever with Return to Alpha: the Beta Earth Chronicles! I started off believing this was a sci-fi read, but I quickly discovered that it was so much more. From the first page, I was hooked on the idea of multiple perspectives- it's one of my favorite ways to read a novel and I was so excited to discover this in this read. Each character's perspective is written in their own unique voice with incredible detail. Aside from the characters and strong writing, the plot and message of this story are what makes it truly great. The author incorporates relevant issues and alludes to topics that are on the front lines in our time in the most interesting way through this book. It was interesting to draw parallels to real life through the character's lives on Alpha and Beta Earth. Aliens, multi-verses, a fast moving plot, and a compelling storyline- this read was entertaining, engaging, and fun to read! Definitely not one you'll want to miss."
"The story is strong and the dialogue plentiful. I like a good dialogue in a book and the odd gratuitous sex scene, of which there are a few . . . It would do well as a stand-alone, as well as part of the series it was intended to be. I can honestly say that I would like to read the rest of the series to see how the story got to the point it reached. I highly recommend this read."
Fascinating! Britton is a new author to me and I found the concept behind this book to be very intriguing. The multiverse concept is one I am seeing more and more. I really enjoyed the author’s take on this theme. I found the characters fascinating and the storyline was original. True scifi lovers will enjoy this new world that Britton has created.
