Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

With Love, From Planet B is a work of fiction penned by author Zaayin Salaam MD in the visionary, metaphysical, and sociocultural subgenres. It is best suited to mature adult readers owing to scenes of a sexual nature and some complex adult themes. Set in the year 2085, readers find themselves immersed in a poignant narrative amid the backdrop of the sixth extinction event and a world governed by the Free One World Nation. Zara, a Master Lucid Dreamer, holds the key to a hopeful future, training for long-distance teleportation to Planet B, discovered by her girlfriend Lex. As they navigate the complexities of reaching utopia and confronting the Three Spiritual Diseases plaguing Earth, readers are taken on a hero's journey filled with revelations and uncomfortable truths. The narrative not only explores the consequences of environmental neglect but also serves as a spiritual reflection on the human condition.

Author Zaayin Salaam MD weaves a tale that combines the urgency of environmental collapse with the personal journeys of Zara and Lex in a truly momentous exploration of human existence from an abstract and interesting alien perspective. The work is an immersive experience that requires an open mind and a ready soul, prompting contemplation about the current state of our world and the potential for redemption in ways that most writers just wouldn’t be able to think about, let alone put into words. I was impressed by the way the teachings and observations are woven naturally into dialogue and plot events, never too pushy but always challenging typical perceptions. Salaam's narrative mastery creates a story that resonates not just as a speculative future but as a call to introspection, inviting readers to consider the choices we make and the impact they have on our planet and collective spirituality. Overall, With Love, From Planet B is a highly recommended read for fans of metaphysical and contemplative fiction that resonates deeply with real-world issues.
