Daniel and Job by William A. Rich is a romantic comedy novel with a sci-fi twist. The plot centers on budding reporter Jessica Drake, who we first meet when she’s fleeing from the huge corporation Rev-Tech with an incriminating photo she’s mistakenly taken. On the verge of being punished for this misdemeanor, Jess is rescued by the mysterious Daniel and his faithful dog Job, and so begins her rocky road to romance as she discovers the truth of who Daniel really is. The Rev-Tech conspiracy really gets going as alien legends and military and federal agents mix into the tale, resulting in an irreverent look at science fiction set against the backdrop of invasion.

Though Daniel and Job is first billed as young adult fiction, I’d say that the age of the characters, their language use, and sex references raise it to New Adult level for me. William A. Rich has created an involved plot line which was intriguing and genuinely hard to predict, though a little too fast moving in some places due to its lack of description. Having said that, readers who want a pacy non-stop plot without the hassle of character descriptions and locations will certainly race through the story and enjoy its snappy dialogue and word play. Overall, I’d say this is a take on science fiction for people who don’t actually read science fiction, distilling all the most interesting and humorous elements of the genre into a witty little rom-com that adults of all ages could enjoy.
