The Light: An Alien Abduction is a science fiction love story; an account of an abduction of a human by an alien race of beings who justify their act in an attempt to save their people trapped on a dying planet.

Excerpt
Proclamation Of World Unification:
“We the people of the planet Earth, third world orbiting Sol, declare ourselves to be of one body, the soul of humanity. In so doing, we acknowledge that all men and women were created from the essence that molded the universe. All members of the world community are brothers
and sisters and responsible to one another to ensure that every living human being, as well as the unborn generations to come, have the tenable rights of life and freedom. They have the right to exist as they see fit as long as their pursuit of a livelihood does not destroy the life and freedom of others. We
therefore proclaim that the people of Earth are one and united!”

His marriage in tatters, a final altercation drives Lewis to violence when his wife's acts of cruelty and carelessness eradicate his last shred of patience. That impact, flesh against flesh, brought him a raw sense of power that only ends when his eight-year-old son bites him. Fleeing his own violence, Lewis goes to his brother Steven's home. They walk late at night beneath a Southern California sky until a pale green beam of light takes them away.



The brothers awaken on an Oceanic spaceship. After testing, the Oceanians determine that Lewis will make the better subject, returning his brother to earth with no memory of their experience. Lewis becomes a member of the crew, traveling to Oceana and learning of their need for a new home world. Technologically advanced, their civilization suffers from reverse discrimination, proving that discrimination can exist no matter the cultural and technical advances.



THE LIGHT: AN ALIEN ABDUCTION by Michael L. Thal presents a fascinating cast of characters and contrasting civilizations that are more alike than different in their prejudices. Thal presents a convincing argument for end of nationalism and the need for global unity, and scathing social commentary guised as fiction regarding sexual discrimination. While the tone becomes a bit preachy at time, it also offers a hopeful view of our future. The exploration of consciousness not bound by physical limitations also provides a fascinating subplot. Thal's gift succinct writing style brings this tale vividly alive. Recommended.

Harry's Review
I am the brother of the author. For that reason I HAD to read the book. I am also a lover of Science Fiction, so it wasn't a difficult request. It started off interesting. Michael's middle name is Lewis, and his twin's middle name is Steven. The characters were interesting as characters, but seeing family resemblance made it especially interesting to me. The space travels were "not of this world," so the relationship to the "real world" were soon left far behind as Lewis left this world for parts unknown. I enjoyed his travels. It reminded me a bit of the original Star Trek television series, with just a touch of Star Wars thrown into the mix. The romance between two characters reminded me of the couple on "Lost in Space." But now I am really dating myself.



The only real criticism I have for this book is the ending. It ended far too soon. It needs a sequel! I just have to know what happens to these very nice people.



I recommend "The Light" to all romantics and those loving a good sci-fi read. It is fun, exciting and "light." ...Harry Thal, Kernville, CA
