Book Description:

Xenogeneic is a science fiction thriller about first contact with an alien race that lost their civil war and wants to take over Earth.

Dr. Elena Pyetrov’s father vanished in space 18 years ago while searching for extraterrestrial life. As an aerospace engineer, Elena travels into space to search for answers and continue his work. Her ship is pulled off course and crashes. She suspects extraterrestrial interference.

The alien Knoonk lost their civil war in a distant star system and fled to Earth’s neighborhood to hide and regroup. They seek a new home—Earth. Unable to live in Earth’s toxic environment, the aliens kidnap and use humans to genetically modify their species to adapt.

Surviving the crash, Elena and her shipmates are transported to a closed cave system where the Knoonk monitor and control everything. Elena tries to make a connection with her hosts and find ways to work together, but Knoonk leaders rebuff her and force the humans to submit as slaves. The aliens use illusions, distractions, and social experiments to learn from their hostages and keep them off balance. Resistance by captive humans brings swift punishment to break the human spirit.

While Elena continues to look for ways to cooperate with the Knoonk, it becomes apparent that there can be no compromise. The Knoonk want to capture Earth for their species. It is winner take all. With time running out, Elena must dig deep to uncover the alien plan and find a way to stop them before the human race faces enslavement and extinction.

My Review
Xenogeneic: First Contact by Lance Erlick was a very well written adult science fiction novel. Science Fiction is by far my favorite genre and recently I have been truly struggling to locate good science fiction that I had not already read. When I found and read  Xenogeneic: First Contact by Lance Erlick I realized I had found a unique science fiction novel that was simply amazing.
I loved Dr. Elena Pyetrov the way that she first tried to find common ground with the aliens and to avoid enslavement or bloodshed was amazing. Then when the aliens began their experiments I truly got to see her shine as a character. I really liked that she was a strong female character and not just a pushover. I found the social experiments of the aliens to also be interesting and well described. I really enjoyed reading Xenogeneic: First Contact by Lance Erlick.
