2018 Day 60A – Review – Letter 44 Vol. 1: Escape Velocity by Charles Soule, Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque

On Inauguration Day, newly elected President Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing President, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close – assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination. 

Today, President-elect Blades has become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.

Chief Warrant Officer Graven Tower is a ruggedly handsome military policeman who hates aliens. Fortunately, as a member of His Grace’s Military Crimes Investigation Division – Xenocriminology and Alien Relations, he gets to arrest a lot of them. Sometimes he even gets to shoot them.

But while he doesn’t like aliens, Chief Tower does very much like Detector Derin Hildreth of the Trans Paradis Police Department, who is unmistakably human. So when Tower has the chance to investigate the mysterious murder of an alien on the streets of Trans Paradis with her, he’s not about to miss the opportunity. Especially when their mutual investigation just might give him the excuse to shoot an alien or three.

2018 Day 56B – Review – Curse of the Immune by Levi Doone

My name is Leah Tusa. I’m fourteen years old. I enjoy reading and school. I’m skinny, not very strong, clumsy and I still sleep with stuffed animals. None of which are very useful in a zombie apocalypse.

My brother Luke is the complete opposite, strong, athletic, and couldn’t care less about academics. He’s gone missing and I’m left to fend for myself.

People like me weren’t meant to survive in such a world, yet here I am. Thankfully I find Rudy who saves and trains me as I search for my brother.

Oh, and Rudy’s a handsome guy that’s my age. I fear the trick will be to live long enough to find out if we have a chance at romance.

It seems all the adults and most of the kids have become undead. No one left to tell us what to do, or protect us.
