I’m not really in to SCI-FI books but I really wanted to read this book as I thought the main idea is interesting. Let me start by saying that the story starts slow then many complex things happen.
Basically The Inter-Terrestrial is about a boy (alien) called Bloxnor, whose father was a soldier and died while fighting in the Neptunian Lunar war. Tarooma (his mother) took her son Bloxnor and moved to phase six. after adjusting to his new life, Bloxnor accidentally fell in to planet earth, where he met Becky ( a human), and had a son with her, half alien and half human (an inter-terrestrial son). Since he went back to phase six, Bloxnor (became a scientist) trying to figure out a way to go back to the forbidden planet earth in order to reunite with his son “Charlie”.but aliens from neighboring planets (Mars and Venus) think they own the Earth and are adamant that it not be used by higher species without their consent.
While the storyline is good. There are still hits and misses. I think what really killed it is that it is a bit too long. However, I kept reading it because I really wanted to reach the ending, which was predictable. The description through out the book is very good but some of the characters needed more development to really get to know them and be able to sympathize with them. I also think there could be a better choice of a cover photo.
Overall, Indie Sci-fi author Chad Descoteaux is definitely an author to watch, I think he got a lot of potential and stories to tell. If you like SCI-FI books, you need to give this one a read!
