Liberty Below Zero by D. J. Mays is a thrilling science fiction story. Some of us believe in “out there” and some don’t. The Ave-tians are fascinated by planet Earth but they are not fascinated by the swarms of uncivilized natives that dominate it. Those natives are refusing to submit to the Ave-tians though, so they must come up with another way – and they have found the solution. But the humans are not going down without a fight and they form a Global Earth Alliance. Dan doesn’t trust any organization with that much power and he disappears to the Alaskan backwoods. There, he runs a refugee camp but the GEA has already ordered them to be shot on sight, considering them rebels that need taking down. A first contact Ave-tian specialist, Rem-ik, has discovered that not all the natives are the same and some are even nice but, when he accepts Dan’s hand of friendship, he finds himself in the middle of a bitter battle with the GEA. Now Dan and Rem-ik must determine who they can and can’t trust if they are to survive.
Liberty Below Zero by D. J. Mays is a fascinating sci-fi thriller that you won’t want to put down. A well-written story, this is paced really well with no dead spots and plenty of action in it to keep you interested. The characters are real people with emotions and flaws that you can connect to easily, very well developed, and allowed to grow throughout the story. This is a different take on the genre, a unique look offering a fascinating insight into how the first contact may be handled and the conflict between the human factions is fascinating enough, without adding aliens into the mix too. A great story, even for those not into sci-fi – this one will hook you and leave you wanting to read more from D. J. Mays.
