Alien Body: First in the Phane Series by William X. Adams is a science fiction novel that puts a new spin on aliens and human relationships. When physician Dave Booker drove up to his summer cabin, he had no idea that he would have the surprise of his life. He arrived at the place, only to find bicycle tracks entering his cabin. He called the local Sheriff and got the all-clear to enter his cabin, so imagine his surprise when he finds a green alien waiting inside. Little Phane’s shuttlecraft crashed and now he is stranded on earth. He needs to get back to it before his mothership considers him dead and leaves without him. However, everyone wants to find him, especially the military. Now it is up to Booker and Phane to make sure that this little guy gets home safely and in one piece. Can they do it? Can they really make it happen?

I usually don’t enjoy first-person narratives and I find them a little disconnecting for some reason. However, Alien Body was a brilliant novel in the first-person narrative and at no time did I feel as if I was disconnected from the characters or the story. I was hooked from the beginning and invested in the story. The author did a wonderful job at building up the hype, maintaining it and making sure that the momentum was kept going until the very end. I enjoyed how Phane was created; he was intelligent, surprisingly sarcastic at times and a genius that I would like to sit down and talk with. His amazing personality complemented Dave’s and together they made a duo that is simply too amazing to forget. Brilliantly engaging and entertaining.
