"A new page-turning sci-fi thriller by Mark Marinaccio" — Steve Alten, NY Times & international best-selling author of The MEG series
★★★★ – Indie Reader ★★★★ – San Francisco Book Review ★★★★ – Online Book Club
"HUMANS, GODS, AND HYBRIDS contemplates the whereabouts of alien abduction offspring and the issues of xenophobia and genetic engineering in the tidy package of an exciting, explosively paced thriller that puts a thought-provoking spin on the first contact trope." – Indie Reader
Being the son of a leader is never easy but Alien Travelers Kellan and Tendra just want to be like everyone else on Earth. That is, until they come face to face with anti-Trav humans, an experience that will forever change their direction in life.
Agent Kate Pierce’s job as a member of the newly formed Reattachment and Protection Agency is to keep children safe – specifically, human and alien hybrid kids.
But when terrorists threaten Kate’s ability to protect Sabrina, a Traveler child, Kate draws on strengths that she never knew she had in order to save the little girl.
In doing so, she becomes entangled with the aliens, her own government, and an out-of-this world conspiracy that turns her world upside down.
The first book in the HUMANS, GODS, and HYBRIDS series challenges everything you thought you knew about first contact with an alien race.
"This novel is both heart-wrenching and thought-provoking, holding up a mirror to humanity’s worst impulses, but also highlighting the potential for good that can be found on the planet. Looking at Earth through the eyes of alien protagonists makes for a fascinating analysis, while the estranged romance at the core of this story keeps the emotional investment high." – Self Publishing Review
Not many sci-fi novels could maintain a nice balance of plot execution and characterization, but I liked that this novel handled it just right. " - OnlineBookClub.org

Strange things keep happening around us, such as the appearance of a monolith object appearing in a desert location, disappearing and reappearing in another location, unexplained objects in the night sky that challenge explanation, etc. Mark brings an alternative zone of vision and insight by suggesting the reality of extraterrestrial aliens and their interplay with us. Dubiety? Read how he makes it all seem credible: ‘Subtle, triple alarms chimed inside the moving cabin Kellan bit back a groan and burrowed his face deeper into his Tendra’s shoulder, breathing in her scent. The alarm signaled three things to Kellan: First, it was time to wake up; second, he’d need to put his clothes back on, and third, the lives of nearly eight billion people were about to change forever…For more than twenty years he’d been staring out that window looking for answers. And now it floated before him, in a blue orb, as uncertain as ever before. Earth…’ Sounds so plausible, and that is one of the many reasons this sci-fi novel works so well!
Mark distills the plot: ‘Alien-human hybrids who have no memory of their past are headed to Earth. Deep seeded Government secrets threaten the stability of the planet. A desperate federal agent searches for the daughter she never knew she had. Being the son of a leader is never easy but Alien Travelers Kellan and Tendra just want to be like everyone else on Earth. That is, until they come face to face with anti-Trav humans, an experience that will forever change their direction in life. Agent Kate Pierce’s job as a member of the newly formed Reattachment and Protection Agency is to keep children safe – specifically, human and alien hybrid kids.

In doing so, she becomes entangled with the aliens, her own government, and an out-of-this world conspiracy that turns her world upside down.’
Written for the hungry Young Adult audience, this new entry into paranormal literature is so well scribed that even dubious older readers will find it immensely entertaining. Credible characters AND credible proceedings become part of our altered approach to considering contact with aliens et al. Be prepared! Grady Harp, January 21
I really did enjoy reading this novel. I do think that it lends itself very nicely to the beginning of a series or a much larger universe of characters and events, which will be fin to follow as more installments come out. The characters were fairly well developed, although at times I felt the narrative was a little disjointed and hard to follow. However, this did not keep me from moving forward and finishing the book. I think this story is especially relevate today when thinking of foreign children needing protection and the current state of our country's immigration policy. Fans of science fiction and thrillers will enjoy this read and what it has to offer the genres.
It tells the story about how some Humans have a close contact with Aliens. After that, some of them mingle with Aliens for a purpose- they need to save someone. And there the adventure begins!
This book is brilliantly plotted. Very original and amusing. Each character is well-developed and dynamic throughout the story. Also, I would like to highlight that the book is very descriptive and excellent to let your mind flow. I was immersed in the story and I could not put it down easily. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre and apart from that, anyone who thinks that human-beings are not alone on earth.
