Fascinating! Britton is a new author to me and I found the concept behind this book to be very intriguing. The multiverse concept is one I am seeing more and more. I really enjoyed the author’s take on this theme. I found the characters fascinating and the storyline was original. True scifi lovers will enjoy this new world that Britton has created.

Return to Alpha is my first read by Britton and I can’t wait to read the other books in the Beta-Earth Chronicles; it can be read as a stand alone book even though it is part of the chronicles. Britton has created and written an intriguing and exciting new twist to Earth/life as we know it.

The synopsis for this book prepares you for all the new names, terms, ideologies and more that you will encounter while reading. I feel there should have been more from the view of the authorities they were running from, to help the reader smoothly follow with the plot narrative.

Although I feel there could have been more to this book, it is a read that I will recommend!

Wesley Britton is a new author to me, but he is quite brilliant. This book felt complex, but was well developed with a very original storyline. The characters you will come to love because they are very well written, and they exude such personality as you get to know them.
This was a Sci-Fi story that took a bit to grow on me, but once I began and got into the book it was a great read, and hard to put down.
Based upon planet earth in the future its been ravaged by environmental issues, plagues, and disease. Much of the population eliminated.
When Aliens arrive people are unsure of their true purpose or how to act, and from there the book takes off as we learn about the remaining earth inhabitants and the newly arrived aliens. With the vast differences and believes will it be a transition to peace, or more of a road to chaos.

Return To Alpha was an interesting read. This one threw me off a bit, it was entertaining, but I think the whole concept just went over my head. This is very much a sci-fi book. The concepts and stories featured in this book were very interesting and entertaining, I just couldn’t personally keep up with all the names and characters and events and terms. It was a little much for me to keep straight in my head. This story was very original and unique to me in those regards, I just had so much trouble concentrating on everything that was mentioned. I hate that I didn’t love this book as much as I wanted to but I know there are some sci-fi people out there that will absolutely devour this novel! This novel was very well written, it just wasn’t the one for me but I still definitely recommend it!

“Return to Alpha” is a dystopian novel set in the future, based off the events that are occurring today – with the pandemic being at the forefront of the “festivities”. I have read many books with a similar mindset, and while I do want to applaud the author for painting a scarily realistic picture of what could become – possibly minus the space travel, but who really knows! – it was a difficult book to immerse myself in.
The writing was factual and concise, and extremely descriptive – sometimes to the point that it look away from the book itself and I found myself wanting to skip forward to the next part.
There also are a lot of characters – each with extensive backgrounds and information. Again, this is a the show of a very talented author, it was just a bit much for myself.
Good work, Wesley Britton!

Wesley Britton’s Return to Alpha: A New Saga Begins is a wonderfully imaginative and well-written story about a topic written many times before…aliens. However, Return to Alpha explores the topic in a relatively new way by connecting the aliens to Alpha-Earth by their home planets of Beta-Earth and Cerapin-Earth, Earths that exist in parallel universes to ours. Britton’s writing is easily read, flows well from thought to thought, and gives the characters a realistic quality that makes you want to know their stories. Published earlier this year, 2021, this book is eerily similar to the pandemic still sweeping across the globe presently. I look forward to reading more of Wesley Britton’s works.

Return to Alpha by Wesley Britton starts with a description of each character you’ll need to know. Over the last 40 years of one catastrophe after another, what more can go wrong with the arrivals of interdimensional aliens? There is much drama, relationships, and longing till the end. Wesley did a good job with this spin off of his other series. This book was an interesting read, but sometimes I had to get back on track and was able to finish.

In this story, aliens have come to alpha earth on a mission, and are greeted by people who are less than enthusiastic at their arrival. The beginning of the story is a bit slow, but it picks up about half way through. The aspects involving COVID-19 are always interesting to read about in books, and where the world went after those events made for an intriguing background to the story. The characters were fun and quirky for sure, and I was thrilled to have some romance to root for, as I am a sucker for a romance. In general, if you like sci-fi adventure, a bit of post-apocalyptic and dystopian, with just a sprinkle of romance, you should absolutely give this book a shot. Once the stage is set, the adventure really is fun to experience.

Dystopian Sci-Fi
This was a very interesting story. I have recently been a big fan of dystopian books, as we’re at a point in this world where everything feels so unsure. Add in some Sci-Fi, Stargate-ish stuff and you’ve got me hooked.
I enjoyed the different aspects of the multiverse used in this book. I felt the characters were well written, though I would have liked to know more about some of the secondary characters. The story was mostly fast paced, a little wordy at unnecessary times.
I hadn’t realized this was a spin-off series, but I will be checking out that series. I hope this series will be continued, as I feel the future of these characters could be interesting to read.

Interesting sci-fi adventure
An unexpected intriguing story. There are a wide variety of characters and range of adventures. There is a lot for sci-fi fans to enjoy. At times I found the writing became too wordy which had me losing momentum when reading. Overall a very good read packed with a gambit of emotions and even some romance that kept my interest until the end.
