About The Others:
A dangerous adventure to save a distant world Ryen is just a normal guy trying to do his job. Unfortunately, that job includes trying to save his distant world on the brink of disaster.

Ryen is on a mission to Earth to find the answers to his distant world's most critical questions. While searching the Yucatan Peninsula for a mythic figure-a savior-who would live a perfect life and ultimately die to save their souls, Ryen meets Savannah, a beautiful woman hiding a painful past. On their dangerous adventures together through the untamed jungles of Mexico, he can't help but fall in love with her. As his time runs out, Ryen must decide if he is willing to give up everything he has ever known and loved to stay on Earth with Savannah.

The Masters, a powerful clan of corrupt leaders, are plotting to take back Earth, the sacred planet, from the humans. Ryen and Savannah are thrust into the middle of The Masters' plot.

About the Author:

My Review:
The Others took me a little bit to get into, but only for the fact I'm not used to reading science fiction. By Chapter Three I was pretty well hooked, though, and it didn't take much longer before I didn't want to put the book down!  The Others had to be one of the most intriguing books I have ever read.  It was full of suspense, the 'sci-fi' aspect was actually quite cool and I can always get into a good love story.  The Others is a book I would highly recommend and would even love to see it as a movie some day!

Buy It!
The Others can be purchased for $11.41 as a paperback or on Kindle for $9.99.  Amazon says its 192 pages, but my book is 388 pages.

I can't remember reading Science Fiction ever either, but your review has left me curious. I like that the setting is in Mexico.

I like sci fi as long as it doesn't get all weirded out :). I am forever looking for good books to read since I read so much. I will have to look for this one. Thanks for sharing.
