Captivating, fast-paced, and mind-boggling, The Abduction Chronicles by Thomas L. Hay begins with a powerful claim from an unusual person. The protagonist’s ex-wife just called to say they were abducted by aliens. And in a matter-of-fact-tone, she explains how she has been able to overcome the mind block that has kept them from remembering what actually happened. This isn’t a phenomenon that happened only once, but something that occurred several times. Now, intrigued, he must find out the truth. Will he be able to unveil the mystery, discover who the abductors were and what they wanted?

This novel is a unique blend of sci-fi and the supernatural, a story that will remind readers of the quirky moments of out-of-body experiences and unusual happenings that steal upon their souls in the hushed hours of the day. I felt as if I had been where the protagonist/narrator has been. Thomas L. Hay has the gift of taking readers on a ride to places that feel so strangely familiar, the places that steal into their dreams and leave them feeling as if they have actually been somewhere. Never has sci-fi felt so real to me. The characters are well-developed and the emotions they harbor within themselves will be familiar to readers. I enjoyed the way the conflict is developed. From the very first page, the author builds a sense of urgency through the masterful use of descriptions that capture the emotional and psychological depth of the story. The Abduction Chronicles is fast-paced, featuring a complex plot and memorable characters, a must-read for fans of the supernatural and sci-fi.
