Ben Roberts hears voices…alien voices.
When word of his ability spreads through the galactic grapevine, Ben ranks number one on an A.I.'s most wanted list to become their cybernated slave. A bleak prospect, but what if they offered him everything he ever dreamed of in exchange?
A headstrong spaceship, with an intelligence of its own, shows up to help Ben, but he doesn't know if it can be trusted. When he discovers a powerful alien has taken refuge on Earth, Ben makes it his mission to rescue it from the race of A.I. beings.
If he can't find a way to survive, the balance of power throughout the universe could be altered forever.
Aliens, robots, and spaceships all rolled up into one hilarious, page-turning story. Get your copy of Hometown Space Pirate to start the adventure.
This is really 4-1/2 stars!
I don’t usually do book reviews. So, please bear with me. At the beginning of the book, we learn the main character (Ben) hears aliens. That alone had me hooked. You can do a lot with that fact. Ben wasn’t shy with this ability. In fact, he wrote a book about it and went on a talk show regarding it, which didn’t go over as he had hoped. I found myself empathizing with him and couldn’t wait for him to be justified. After the talk show, his life was never the same. Later, he got to meet aliens, in the plural, and had to figure out which course to take in order to survive. There were spaceships, too. One spaceship becomes a secondary character, which soon became a favorite to me. The dialogue between Ben & this spaceship was perfect, which had me really laughing at them. I enjoyed the pace of the story, as well. When I had gotten a little past the halfway point, I found myself reading beyond my bedtime & had to force myself to stop. I wanted—-no—- I needed to find out what was going to happen to all of the characters. Quite intriguing! Then, at the very end, I wanted to shout, “WHEN IS THE SECOND BOOK COMING OUT?!!!” I will definitely buy it & look forward to seeing what happens.
New series. New adventures
I always enjoy the start to a new series! The ending of this book leaves you looking forward to what happens next.
