Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: A New World – Contact by MD Neu @Writer_MDNeu @XpressoTours

A New World – Contact
MD Neu
Publication date: February 4th 2019
Genres: LGBTQ+, Science Fiction

A little blue world, the third planet from the sun. It’s home to 7 billion people with all manner of faiths, beliefs and customs, divided by bigotry and misunderstanding, who will soon be told they are not alone in the universe. Anyone watching from the outside would pass by this fractured and tumultuous world, unless they had no other choice. Todd Landon is one of these people, living and working in a section of the world called the United States of America. His life is similar to those around him: home, family, work, friends and a husband.
On the cusp of the greatest announcement humankind has ever witnessed, Todd’s personal world is thrown into turmoil when his estranged brother shows up on his front porch with news of ships heading for Earth’s orbit. The ships are holding the Nentraee, a humanoid race who have come to Earth in need of help after fleeing the destruction of their homeworld. How will one man bridge the gap for both the Humans and Nentraee, amongst mistrust, terrorist attacks and personal loss? Will this be the start of a new age of man or will bigotry and miscommunication bring this small world to its knees and final end?

My Review:

A New World – Contact tells the story of human’s first contact with an alien race the Nentraee. We get to hear the story from both sides which gives us POV’s of both human’s and Nentraee’s.

The Nentraee’s home was destroyed many years ago. They have been living on their space ships traveling the galaxy looking for a new home with no such luck until they happen upon Earth.

The Nentraee’s ships are getting old and in need of heavy repair. Their need to find a home is of utmost importance before their ships fail them.

Todd and his husband Jerry are awaiting the arrival of their friend Dan who is coming to stay with them for a while when Todd’s brother Brad shows up at their door giving them warning about aliens hoovering on the city and to stay indoors.

No one knows what to expect since they have never met an alien before but Jerry, Todd and Dan are doing just fine with the news. They act as if it is no big deal or at least nothing to worry about. All they are thinking about is how to get an introduction.

How will first contact between humans and the aliens turn out? Will the aliens attack? Will the humans attack? What will be the outcome of their first contact? Can humans and aliens live peacefully together?

A New World – Contact is a great introduction to a new series and the world of aliens. It has enough action and suspense to keep you hooked from page one. The characters were all remarkable and I can’t wait to find out more about them and their new world.

I would recommend A New World – Contact to all fans of science Fiction and aliens.
