Eaters and Overlords by Blaine C. Readler is a science fiction novel which revolves around a bright young woman named Terri. Her home life is unconventional and far from easy. Her uncle pays for home health care for her mother who has Alzheimer's so that Terri can go to college and, because of this, she carries a load of guilt and anxiety to get the best grades. After getting a bad grade on her zoology final, Terri convinces her college professor, Professor Siderai, to give her an extra credit project. Before they venture off into the forest, Terri notes that an old man had been murdered there a week prior and, despite the seemingly off-handed comment, Terri and Professor Siderai may have just met the likely assailants responsible… though they aren’t human and they aren’t from Earth either.
There is an abundance of science fiction novels about aliens out there, but I don’t think any of them are anything like Readler’s Eaters and Overlords. He gives depth to his characters and humanity to otherwise non-human characters; the science he provides is written with an extremely thorough and careful hand so that it translates with utter subtlety and makes it easy to comprehend without sounding overly simplified or overly complicated. I think the story is superb, and it is always fun to imagine the possibility of intelligent life being out there. What's even more fun is imagining how humans would react and interact with them and Readler’s take on this subject is a breath of fresh air. Science fiction fans will be delighted by Eaters and Overlords.
