FOUR STAR REVIEW by Red City Review
"A fast-paced science-fiction novel that intertwines elements of suspense, romance, while tackling some of life's biggest questions, Earth Escape: Odyssey to the Edge of the Universe by Real Laplaine is an engaging, thought-provoking read. We follow our protagonist, Jim Tale, as he embarks on a three-decade long journey into outer space, as the captain of the interstellar ship, the Evolution. Earth's resources are dwindling, and chaos abounds across the planet, thus the need to search for a new world to colonize. Jim is tasked with finding a sister-planet to Earth some 1,400 light years away, where humanity can start anew. Constantly haunted by his wife's death, Jim has to deal with nightmares while asleep, and awake, when he receives news that Earth is on the brink of a nuclear holocaust. His companion, the extremely advanced android, CASS, continuously challenges his beliefs, all while guiding the ship toward its hopeful salvation. While pondering how life came to be, Jim is confronted with an abundance of threats and surprises, including dangerous missions, thrilling space-walks, and encounters with extraterrestrial life.
This high-stakes story takes place in the not-too-distant future, where Earth is a mess, and astronauts and space explorers are given the seemingly impossible task of finding a new planet that mankind can call home. The writing is quick, imaginative, and inventive. Jim Tale is a strong lead character, who is multifaceted and relatable, as he seems like a somewhat ordinary guy who just so happened to land in the position of commanding a spaceship on one of the most important missions ever undertaken. There is a great deal of dialogue in the novel, so a lot of the information and experiences are told through the voices of the main characters, which at times can be enjoyable, but also can somewhat overwhelm during certain scenes. The author is great at world-building, we just wish there was more time spent describing the complex and intriguing settings that keep these voices ingrained in reality, albeit a very sleek, futuristic one, where danger seemingly lurks at every turn."

About the Author

For the most part I write thriller novels which could be called high-concept thrillers or even existential thrillers. While they are thrillers to the bone, they also knock on doors and ask questions about existence, life, who we are and why we are here. My books generally have a thread that runs through them, inviting the reader to look outside the box, maybe even to challenge mediocrity and the world around us - and certainly to spotlight some of the ills which challenge our world. I have also penned a crime thriller novel series called the Keeno Crime Thriller Novels, which I continue to do for reasons explained on my blog at https://thrillernovels.blog/ - as well as a Literary Fiction entitled See Me Not, a book which I intended to be an ambassador and voice against human trafficking. My main genre, however, remains the high-concept and existential thrillers, because my proclivity and imagination tends to dip into that well. It is my hope that through my writing, I can help raise the threshold of social consciousness in our world so that the future remains bright and expansive and none of us have to return to a scarred and decimated world caused by war and hatred.
