The Rose Vol. 1: A Dystopian Science Fiction Thriller
by P.D. Alleva
The Rose Vol. 1 by P.D. Alleva Sandy Cox believed WW3 was over. But for those Alien Vampires, war has just begun. Forty-eight hours after a World War 3 treaty is signed Sandy Cox awakens in an underground compound unable to move. Tied to machines, she screams for help but no one answers. At least no one human.
And they’ve taken her unborn child. Phil is a rebel freedom fighter who has had more than his share of Alien Vampires. Armed with The Blades, a sacred alien martial arts weapon, he enters the compound on a mission to find Sandy. But as he battles through the compound, Phil discovers Sandy has her own agenda. Finding her stolen child is all that matters. But the Vampires have their own plan and Sandy’s baby is at the heart of their diabolical plot. Joined by a crew of rogue soldiers, they must navigate the underground compound, combating genetically mutated humans, aliens, and monsters. When battling Alien Vampires, one thing is certain…Get Ready To Bleed! Fans of Jeff VanderMeer's Annihilation, Star Wars, The Matrix, and Ancient Aliens will be fascinated by this high-powered, edge-of-your- seat action adventure.
Robin's Review: This was a fast paced, easy to read page turner. The world building was brilliantly done and quite scary. The plot had many “evil” forces like the Russians and Chinese that were at war with the Americans. And if that’s not horrible enough you got freaking aliens who are actually in control. The characters are so real and well thought out that I was rooting for them. Well, the “good” guys that is. I was having trouble getting through this book simply because I didn’t want it to end. It has crossed many genres and sub genres. I cannot put my finger on just one. It has action/adventure, horror because of the varied creatures, first contact because of alien beings, apocalyptic because of war in the form of WW3, Science fiction because again aliens, dystopian/apocalypse because of the survival aspects. Anyways all these genres and sub genres make for an outstanding read. I really really loved this book, and I am trying to pace myself before I read book 2. Since book 3 isn’t coming until 2023. PD Alleva draws you into this new and scary world with such rich descriptions and likeable characters in a good versus bad scenario that made it into the perfect book.
Here are some of the players: American scientist, Dr Blum and other scientists are from a branch of the Drac government called the “Commission of Ra.” They are working on DNA manipulation between humans and “Dracs.” “Dracs” are alien beings consisting of groups called “The Nine.” there is Sanos; leader, Telas, Titus, Orion, Cade, Rygel, Jubal, Kaidan, and Moya Zeta and Saiph “Greys” are another alien species that are subservient to the “Dracs.” Mono, leader; and the three witches are Mintaka, Alnitak and Alnilam. Jayda and Moth “Thorx” is yet another alien species subservient to the “Greys.” “Lycans” yup you guessed it another alien species and considered as pets. Chinese soldier: Admiral Lao American soldiers: Cam and Corporal Grimes Cameron, Annison, and Perseus Sandy and Ben Cox Robyn Winter was trained to use the “Akashi Record” to see the future. He sent Phil on a mission to rescue Sandy. His mission was to secure Sandy and bring her to Atlanta to train under Robyn Winter. Awesome Lines: “The “Akashi Record “and the “rose” are too very different things. The record is a recording of all events, pass, present and future. The “rose” is for protection. It is a meditative practice.” “That’s right, human evolution will manifest through the rose according to the record, to usher in utopia for those who are left on the earth.” “This place is worse than any level in hell. F$&@ing alien vampires, evil doctors and pills turning Americans into slaves. This whole damn camp needs to be blown off the planet.” “But… They’re all down there. UFOs, cricket blood sucking creatures, and who knows what else. He shook his head. The odds are not on your side.” “Transcendence hides within the Akashic Record.”
It was my pleasure and honor to receive a free copy of this series from the author but that does not in any way affect my opinion in reviewing this entertaining story. #firstcontact #alieninvasion #sciencefiction #fantasy #horror #humorous #vampire #aliens #postapocalyptic #worldwar3 #akashicrecords
