The Jakkattu Vector by P.K. Tyler

*Notice to my regular readers, this isn't a Christian book, though it has Spiritual themes.* I do love Sci-Fi, and wound up with this book without knowing anything but the book description. That said....

This is a book that pulled me in from the start. This book starts off with action and quick kick to the senses that is something I love in a book, or TV series. It opens with a sentient alien creature who grows talons and her current plight as a captive. The purpose of her captivity was quickly revealed, and only served to have me rooting for her. Sabaal is a Jakkattu and the Mezna have her captured and on Earth, a planet she doesn't know and that we wouldn't recognize anymore either. We learn about that from Julip, who is is on the reservation.

After all, the Mezna came and saved Earth, or did they? Is Earth really saved from distraction, or is this some other kind of destruction and enslavement under the guise of rescuing? The characters were easy for me to follow, and the extra points of view were interesting for me. I felt connected to them both, and quite invested in their outcomes. From the hybrids with the blue eyes, to the landscape, to the outcasts, social issues, spiritual issues, this book is a riveting read. It does have some violence, which was mostly logical. It does have some sex issues I would *really* have preferred for it to not have had! To me that isn't necessary in a book and takes away from it. Past that, it has everything needed for a movie or TV series. 

About the Book

ipadmini_707x1018-5They came as saviors to a deteriorating Earth
Julip Thorne questions whether there is more to life beyond the barren dirt, acidic seas, and toxstorms her people work and die in. Living in poverty on the withering Greenland Human Reservation, she wonders if the alien Mezna goddesses are truly as holy as the temple preaches. Julip begins to dig deeper into the history of the planet and her leaders’ rise to power. But nothing can prepare her for the atrocities she uncovers.
Meanwhile, Jakkattu prisoner Sabaal suffers constant torture and heinous medical experiments as her Mezna-priest captors seek to unlock the key to her genetic makeup. Escaping from captivity, she finds herself suddenly alone on the hostile alien planet of Earth. To survive, she’s forced to work with the same Mezna-human hybrids she’s loathed her entire life, but the more they work together, the more they realize that their enemy is the same. When humans and Mezna collide, will Sabaal turn out to be the genetic vector the Mezna have been searching for all along, or will she spark the flame that sets a revolution ablaze?

Thanks so much for the great review. I tried to keep the sex to a minimum, but trust me, that relationship was essential for what's to come in book two!
