Book Review: H.A.L.F.: The Makers by Natalie Wright

H.A.L.F.: The Makers
By Natalie Wright
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Book Description:
Roswell. Area 51. The X-Files.

You’ve seen the spindly-legged, bulbous-headed aliens known as ‘the Greys’ in movies and on television. You may think you know all about them.

But what if everything you think you know is wrong?
And what if the Greys are only the beginning? 

At the far reaches of the galaxy, the M’Uktah evolved from a wolf-like creature into an advanced society that has achieved interstellar travel. They’re sophisticated. Elegant.

Technologically savvy. 

And hungry.

Erika Holt dodged death and departed Earth in an alien ship. It wasn’t how she’d planned to spend her senior year. Is Erika on her way to paradise? Or to a hell worse than the underground lab she escaped? 

The greys rescued Tex from A.H.D.N.A. and promised him a life he could never have imagined. But what will he have to give up to become one with The Conexus?

Jack Wilson is still Commander Sturgis’ prisoner, but a promise of freedom comes from an unlikely source. Will his liberation cost more than he’s willing to pay?

Caught up in their personal battles, will any of them realize the threat that looms over us all before it’s too late?

Wright’s follow-up to her award-winning sci-fi debut has been called “An enthralling, page-turning sci-fi adventure. The makings of an epic!” ~ The Wishing Shelf

Book Review:
H.A.L.F.: The Makers is great! I really enjoyed this science fiction book which is a biggie for me because I don't usually favor science fiction books. I was surprised by the author's writing style. Just some of the words that Ms. Wright used captivated me. I also loved the pace of the book, sometimes I think science fiction books tend to drag on a bit.
The characters in H.A.L.F.: The Makers are great. I liked the point of view change. It worked very well with the story. All the characters were developed eloquently. My favorite thing about H.A.L.F.: The Makers is probably the dictionary at the beginning of the language. I did laugh a little when I saw she had a word for toilet. That is pretty awesome to me because that shows that the author purposely put a lot of detail into the book.
Overall I would give H.A.L.F.: The Makers five stars! I would recommend this book to ALL science fiction readers and to anyone that loves a great book. Like seriously, even if you aren't into this particular genre, you'll dig it!
