Interlope by Kyle Meeker is a captivating sci-fi tale that begins with a scientist reverse-engineering alien technology and embarking on a journey to uncover its mysterious origin. Commander Victor Gray, burdened by the weight of responsibility, finds himself isolated and drifting to a newly discovered planet, battling inner demons while striving to thwart a new threat that endangers the delicate balance of his world. As Victor confronts the unknown, his wife, Elizabeth, and daughter, Allie, must grapple with the aftermath of his departure, attempting to rebuild their lives amidst the enduring wounds of abandonment.

Kyle Meeker's writing skillfully weaves a narrative that draws parallels with the cinematic masterpiece Interstellar, infusing it with real-world events and intriguing dark twists. The plot unfolds seamlessly, with a well-paced rhythm that keeps readers hooked from start to finish. I absolutely loved how the action unfolded—it was like watching a thrilling movie in my mind. The characters are expertly crafted, each with their own complexities and vulnerabilities, making them relatable and engaging. Themes of decision-making, isolation, and the emotional toll of separation are explored with depth and sensitivity. Interlope is a skillfully crafted sci-fi novel that not only captivates readers but also prompts contemplation on the repercussions of our decisions, delving into the psychological breakdown and the impact of trauma on the human psyche. It raises thought-provoking questions about morality, challenging us to consider the fine line between ethical scientific pursuits and potentially perilous experiments. Meeker's ability to balance plot intricacies, pacing, action, well-developed characters, and thought-provoking themes makes this book a must-read for sci-fi enthusiasts and those who appreciate a compelling, emotionally resonant story.
