Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: A New World – Conviction by M.D. Neu @Writer_MDNeu @XpressoTours

A New World – Conviction
M.D. Neu
Publication date: March 11th 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.

After the attack on San Jose, Todd is appointed to Special Envoy for Terran Affairs by the nentraee, a position many world leaders question. Undeterred Todd wants to build bridges between both people. However, this new position brings with it a new set of problems that not only he, but his new allies Mi’ko and Mirtoff must overcome. Will the humans and nentraee learn to work together despite mistrust and threats of more attacks by a new global terrorist group, or will the terrorists win? Will this bring an end to an already shaky alliance between nentraee and humans?

My Review:

The Nentraee had been traveling through space for many, many years looking for a home as theirs was destroyed. They have been traveling and living on their ship and now it is about to give up the ghost so to speak. The Nentraee need a new home and have discovered Earth as a potential new home and would very much like to make peace with the humans living there and hopefully humans and Nentraee can share the Earth and live together in peace.  

But someone is not too keen on the idea of the Nentraee or humans living together. People are afraid of change and of someone different than they are. They are afraid of the unknown always jumping to conclusions and making up stuff in their own heads instead of trying to get to know someone and see what they are like on the inside or what is in their heart.

When the Nentraee and humans try to get together to discuss their living arrangements chaos sets in and lives are put into danger. Todd Landon is assigned Special Envoy for Terran Affairs by the Nentraee. Todd is the ambassador for the Nentraee and humans. He is given his own quarters aboard their spaceship so that he can work closely with the Nentraee. There are a lot of people who are not too keen on Todd’s new roll.

A group of terrorist threatens to attack the Nentraee and humans both putting lives in danger. Can the Nentraee and humans make peace with one another so they can live together? Can they stop the terrorist attacks before it is too late?

A New World – Convictions is filled with action and suspense from the first page and will keep you hooked and flipping those pages. The world building is out of this world amazing I just can’t seem to get enough of it. I can’t wait to see more of this world and the characters. I would also like to know more about the Nentraee and where they came from and the destruction of their world about what happened on their world and their lives aboard the spaceship while traveling the universe.  I would also like to know more about their animals/pets. I would also like to get to know the Nentraee, more about their home life how the roles of man and woman are reversed from humans.

I highly recommend A New World – Conviction to all fans of science fiction and anyone looking for a good story.
