Camouflaged Encounters is a brilliant sci-fi that engages the reader from beginning to end.
The author does a great job logically laying out in detail how it could happen—I mean seriously happen—then he combines it with fun portals to other worlds, where the human Clark makes friends with other alien friends. Unfortunately, most of them want nothing to do with the ancient and vicious species who has infested Earth.
How do you convince the entire human race that aliens who look like humans are taking over Earth by taking over high positions, creating wars and Ebola-like diseases to manipulate the entire world to attack USA. The press has been muzzled and people no longer trust each other.
Can Clark, his on-again girlfriend, an EPA agent, and a reporter save the world and reveal the aliens among us?
It’s a big task and I'm not going to tell you any more, only that I loved every page of this novel.
I give Camouflaged Encounters 5 stars.
Clark Jackson is seemingly just your ordinary guy. A 43 year old up-and-coming accountant, average looking...yup, just your ordinary guy...with a little secret. Clark likes to travel to alien worlds. After buying his house in Iowa, Clark discovers a portal in his backyard, an interstellar portal. Clark has apparently been travelling to alien worlds, meeting fascinating alien creatures, having exciting adventures and checking out alien technology, all while trying to keep his secret hidden from the government. When a series of strange events start happening on Earth, Clark starts to wonder if something more is going on. With the help of his EPA buddy, Rick and Sarina, his girlfriend who has a few secrets of her own, Clark starts investigating what the heck is going on with his planet. The answer is so totally unbelievable that even our interstellar traveller has trouble believing it. Who on earth is going to believe him and how to expose this attempted planet takeover becomes the focus of Clark, and his small group. What would they do to stop Clark from getting the news out? Well, pretty much anything, but can he succeed when the odds are so stacked against him? Camouflaged Encounters is an engagingly well-written sci-fi tale with plenty of action and "I'm busy and not putting this book down for a minute" scenes. The writer weaves a fascinating plot of deceit on a massive scale, disguised as natural disasters when they are anything but, and does a great job of making them seem almost totally believable. As I was reading, I realized I was missing some back story, which if I had read his other novels, would have been filled in, but all-in-all I think this could be read as a stand-alone story. However, to really complete the experience, I would recommend grabbing David Englund's other novels, so you will be up-to-date with the storyline.
The slightly altered girlfriend is back, and the colleague who maybe knows too much. Aliens, friendly and otherwise, from the past two books will play their part. But readers could easily start with this book, learning the past through well-placed recollections, and speeding into the future.
What if aliens are among us, treating us like toys, our wars and politics like games, and our planet like a throwaway reward? What if just a few people know they exist, and just one man has access to technology that might help? And what if that one man is just an everyman?
Stepping unwillingly into danger, reluctantly sharing his knowledge, and empowered by a gentle touch of romance and hope, Clark just might save the world, thereby creating a novel that's way more fun than I expected. Tongue-in-cheek, zany, guy-centric and really cool!
Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review.
There are only a few people aware that aliens are camouflaged as friends, family, and neighbors and Clark, along with his girlfriend, a co-worker (who is not quite what he seems), and a reporter have to work together to save the world from disaster. Clever characterizations and descriptive writing make this book a joy to read.
This book can be read as a standalone, but the reader would get a lot more enjoyment out of it by reading the series in order. There are some things that happen in this book that would gain from having some exposure by what comes before. All in all, an enjoyable read.
