Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is printed in larger type and is appropriate for good readers of all ages. The vocabulary used is vast, making it a good choice as a teaching tool.

From the Author

The Alien Attitudes project has been a labor of love and a story I have been trying to tell for over seven years. It is with the greatest pleasure that I present my efforts for your enjoyment. I have been pleased with the early reviews and am hopeful the characters I have created will find their way into your heart the way they have found their way into mine.

In Alura Allen, Alien at Large , the first book of his Alien Attitudes trilogy, Terence A. (Tiger) Russell demonstrates his uncanny ability to spin a yarn, interspersing shining filaments of originality with cleverly-woven threads from classic stories. A book which may be read on several different levels, it would doubtlessly appeal to both youthful and mature readers. Mr. Russell exhibits the ability to describe his unique characters in such a manner that the distinct personality of each comes to life for the reader.

As the main character, a spunky and independent-- though sometimes naïve-- teenage girl, interacts with her newly-found alien friends, even characters which would upon first impression be bizarre and incredible, actually become believable. Though it would seem impossible, even the unique character "R.J.," whose appearance is no more than a blue flash of light, displays a range of emotions which engage the reader, as does another character, "Brink-o-link," whose brain is floats atop a metal canister. Another major character in the book, a muscular, upright elephant-man, will surely win the hearts of readers from his first introduction, just as he drew Alura's sympathy when she met him.

Moreover, the plot is full of action; as the book progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to put down.

The book ends with some unanswered questions which leave the reader hungry for the second book of the trilogy.I, for one, can hardly wait for the second book's publishing. I wouldencourage everyone to buy this book.
