In Paradox: The Alien Genome by H.S. Rivney, a team of scientists is stranded on a far away planet with no escape in sight and no aid coming from Earth. Captain Thomas Jackson has no idea how he can help his crew survive starvation and protect them from the unknown dangers of a strange planet. He is losing hope as well, but a ray of sunshine comes; salvation in the form of a special someone on this dark planet. Rianya has been curious about the humans from the first moment she laid eyes on them, especially one particular human. Her people, especially her family, do not want her to have anything to do with them, but the lure of that captain is too magnetic to ignore. Soon both of them give up; they first become friends, then allies, and then lovers. Their relationship is frowned upon by her people and so is their daughter. However, their child’s DNA proves to have a cure for millions of children on Earth. But to save these children, they have to go back to Earth. Can they find a way back home? Will their daughter be accepted? Will their relationship be accepted?
Paradox: The Alien Genome by H.S. Rivney is one of those epic science fiction novels that make you wish it would go on and on and never end. Surprisingly descriptive, sweet, emotional and action packed, Paradox: The Alien Genome hooked me right from the start. Sharply crafted and wittily developed, the novel is a wonderful read that I thoroughly enjoyed. The character development was on point and so was the universe. I enjoyed the descriptions and the idea of a humanoid world where humans are the intruders and aliens are the local inhabitants. The world was believable, the characters were enjoyable, and I loved the premise of the story.
