Escape From Nuur by Kathy Porter is the second episode in her Gray Guardians series. In Escape From Nuur, we learn that the Grays have returned to Earth. A year earlier, half a million humans had been abducted and transported to the planet Nuur, ostensibly to save them from a pending catastrophic collapse of the Earth’s crust. However, the Grays’ real motive was far from altruistic; they needed human DNA to help them reverse a tragic mutation, inadvertently created by their own scientists. Within these pages, we encounter half a dozen different sentient alien species from as many planets. Earth has quite recently been accepted into the Galactic Union, a council of leaders from each member planet charged with keeping peace within their galaxy. Ulterior motives, subterfuge, and unadorned dishonesty complicate an already convoluted effort to rescue the abducted humans and secure unity and peace for the galaxy.
Escape From Nuur is a first-rate story, bursting with inter-galactic action, plausible anxiety, budding romance, and subtle humor. The characters develop realistic and believable inter-species relationships while working together. Porter has painstakingly crafted an easily visualized setting for the story, making the ‘mental movie’ quite detailed and entertaining. Although fictional, at times the events and situations in this book are so vividly portrayed it is easy to forget they truly are a figment of Porter’s brilliant imagination. Sequel to book one, Earth’s Ultimate Conflict, Escape From Nuur will soon be followed by book three in the series, The Journey, due out in the spring of 2015. Fans of sci-fi will not want to miss this series.
