The Euclidian: Alien Hitman (Volume 1) Paperback – June 4, 2017
|New from||Used from|
"This is a prequel to a highly rated first contact series by Jay Cannon. It draws you in quick with interstellar action, and doesn't let go until the last page. The book opens on a Euclidian mining ship. Its multi-year mission: to exploit distant planets and return minerals to the home system. The Euclidian typically conquer the inferior races inhabiting these worlds. On occasion, they turn the locals into trading partners, but so far remain the dominant species throughout the galaxy. Next stop: Earth. But first, they pick up a load of prisoners, and here things go off the rails a bit. Some of the detainees escape. An "Ossie" from the Ossurary system, who is particularly skilled in fighting, tracks them to Earth where the action continues. If you enjoy first contact novels, be sure and check this one out, then take a look at the rest of the series!" Readper.com--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Adar felt a bit like Captain Kirk as he navigated his way through life on Earth (and its women). Smooth, for the most part. Purposeful. Always got the girl. Only, Adar loved to kill and smash. He was smart, however, and yet lacked empathy at the beginning. The human race has an excellent track record of assisting the development of this kind of character. Noticeable at the end, the friends Adar made along the way really opened his eyes.
There was a very intergalactic united front. Various kinds of aliens from different planets worked together cohesively. Earth is, of course, the exception. Earth is always the exception. It blended many different sci-fi tropes into one novel. Some were relatively cliché, but there were a few that had very nice twists to them. One thing I had an issue with was how easily people accepted aliens into their midst. Sure, it helped the plot right along, but it felt too easy in places.
Writing style wasn’t bad. The pacing of the novel fit the way the story unfolded. There was lots of action and the wording fit that. I liked the way the characters dealt with each other. Characters themselves were certainly a different breed, but I liked it. The author managed to take heavy stereotypes and made them meaningful. A female character wasn’t hypersexual because she had daddy issues—she just enjoyed it. There was a different kind of depth to the characters that made them stand out.
Alien Hitman is a sci-fi novel with non-traditional overtones. It was pretty well-written, and managed to show the reader just why moral grey areas are such quandaries. There was a cast of great characters, and all the action a reader could want.
