First, you have to understand that Eric is a masterful world builder and Aluna is a place I wouldn’t mind going to see. He paints two equal and opposite views. One of a city incredibly dangerous to those uninitiated in the ways of the darker side of Aluna. In the world that exists for the main protagonist Crow, he not only loves it but also feels at home there.
Things seem to go sideways in Aluna when a young boy, his pet dog, and his pet dinosaur (yes I said dinosaur) get taken from Earth to Aluna for their own protection. For those of you familiar with The Clockman, you will recognize some favorite characters.
Eric not only has a way with world building, but he also has the uncanny ability to get you to care about the characters in my humble opinion, this is the mark of a truly great author. Without spoiling too much, something bad happens to one of the aforementioned characters, and it just about tears your heart out.
As each character rips and plunges their way through the world, you get to see that world through their eyes. You hear their thoughts, feel what they feel, and partake in every moment of their lives. This genuinely invests you in the storyline of Greetings From Sunny Aluna.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in science fiction, action adventure, or fantasy. However, I would also argue that the storyline itself is so engaging that anyone who is looking for a good general fiction read will find something in this latest work from Eric Lahti that they will enjoy.
Two of the main characters, Chan and Felix Crow, are martial artists. Kevin is learning. Among other insights on fighting, from Chan we learn "it didn't really matter who bowed first; it only mattered who remained standing last." Reading GfSA, it was obvious that the author was also into martial arts. Because of that, the author was able to describe the various fights with authoritative detail, that made the action believable and the description of the fights immersive rather than tedious.
Magic, sorcery, dragons, and a dinosaur. Anti-heroic heroes whose common goal has become protecting an eleven year old boy, who didn't want to be there in the first place and, just maybe, isn't the one who needs protecting. A fun ripping tale with a plethora of twists and turns not all of which are in the tunnels under Croatoa.
