I adored this book."
What would you do if aliens kidnapped your sister?
Twelve families experienced the loss of a female child in one frightful night in July 2003. Zack Duncan’s sister, Ashley, was one of those taken but Zack has vowed to get her back, no matter what it takes. The aliens, known as the Anaz-voohri, haven’t realized just how strong the bond between Zack and Ashley is so Zack is able to learn about the alien culture through his telepathy with Ashley.
The FBI doesn’t want the secret of the aliens revealed. Instead, they are tracking Zack’s every move until the day they ask him to join forces with them to defeat the Anaz-voohri. Zack agrees and finds himself training for the Special Forces under Tia Vargas, whom he is instantly attracted to. Tia and Zack’s love will face many obstacles and together they will have to work towards defeating the Anaz-voohri. After all, the ultimate goal of the Anaz-voohri is to take over the earth through a stealthy invasion that threatens life as all humans know it.
ANAZ-VOOHRI is a fantastic futuristic science fiction adventure that manages to span many years in its telling. It is part of the Operation Pleiades series but can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. The stories of several of the minor characters appear in other books in the series but Vijaya Schartz provides the reader with a complete story in ANAZ-VOOHRI. The glimpses of the secondary characters are very telling as to their personalities, however, as the evil Captain Kavak certainly ranks as one of the worst villains ever encountered!
Vijaya Schartz has taken a core group of characters and allows the reader to see the twists and turns that life offers each of them. Generally, one is only given a peek into a character’s past or future through flashbacks, a prologue, or an afterward. Ms. Schartz has attempted a very different approach as the story progresses to a certain point and then jumps forward a few years into the future. The story flows well, however, and one is easily able to follow the sequence of events.
ANAZ-VOOHRI is a worthwhile addition to the library of all science fiction/futuristic fans who want just a tiny taste of romance in their books. The overall plot focuses on Zack’s efforts to thwart the alien culture that kidnapped his sister but the romantic element is still present and intertwined in the storyline. Vijaya Schartz has written a book that is definitely out-of-this-world!
Fallen Angels Reviews (five angels rating)
Ms. Schartz has created a fast paced romance with just the right amount of action that will hold the reader’s desire to find out what will happen next. I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it. The romance between Zack and Tia was very realistic in that even though things didn’t work out the way they wanted, they never forgot or truly gave up on each other. To maintain their belief in spite of all the information to the contrary made this book very memorable. I felt the use of the old legends of Anasazi added another level of reality to this book. I liked how Ms. Schartz created both good and bad humans and aliens, just the way it is in real life. I look forward to reading other books in the Pleiades series.
