Starcrossed: Perigee tells the story of a teenager named Lucy who starts to remember her alien abduction experiences after she meets a boy named Aric. It is a fast-paced book that moves quickly from one exciting, sometimes scary scene to the next. As the story develops, following the relationship between Aric and Lucy, we are introduced to the fascinating and sinister world of aliens called the Innaki. Aric is a hybrid whose special hypnotic powers are used by the Innaki to help them handle humans. Lucy also has unusual powers which she becomes more aware of as the story progresses. Aric and Lucy find themselves on the run not just from the aliens but also from secret government agents.
The amount of information and realistic detail used to describe the aliens and secret agents is enough to make you think the author has been hanging out at Area 51. The revelations are fascinating and the implications often horrifying. If you are interested in alien abduction stories, or the grays, or the government’s supposed involvement with these, then Starcrossed: Perigee is a must read. The book is action packed and thus a real page-turner, although some of my favorite scenes are the ones in which the how’s and why’s of the aliens are discussed. All this builds to an amazing ending comprised of two thrilling confrontations.
This is a work of fiction, but a very convincing and well-written one. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Starcrossed: Perigee and highly recommend it. Pick up a copy today and you might find yourself remembering some interesting late night trips!
