Return to Alpha by Wesley Britton – Review by Stephanie Nicole

Return to Alpha (Beta-Earth Chronicles #6)Return to Alpha by Wesley Britton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Return to Alpha by Wesley Britton was a very interesting read for me, while I don’t usually read sci-fi I thought I would give this one a shot. Upon starting the book the story was interesting, and the chapters short enough that I was able to read it relatively quickly. I must admit even thought this is the sixth book in the series, it is the first that I have read but you can read the detailed story as a stand alone. But personally I find myself wanting to read the rest to see how the story got the great place it is in this installment. Mr. Britton puts his great word-building skills to use to give us very vivid details for not wonky his story but also his wonderful characters. So if you love sci-fi then I definitely recommend Return to Alpha as your next weekend read.

Return to Alpha: A new saga begins is a sci/fi adventure and Author Wesley Britton is a new author to me. I really enjoyed this book and it was nice to start out with the characters names and getting to kn ow who they are. Parts of the story remind me of current times. Disease and global warming are taking over and destroying earth. When a group of aliens arrive in Jamaica, there is not a warm welcome at first. Then the story has an dystopian feel with adventure and even in a little romance.

This is a really good Sci fi adventure. The author does an amazing job of making the story seem so realistic that you could imagine it actually happening. This is the first book I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it. I love how the author mixed a scifi story with current events happening in the world. It makes the story more realistic and relatable.

Plant earth is slowly  being destroyed with terrorists, disease and global warming. Things on Earth are going from bad to worse.
So when a group of 6 aliens land on the shore of Jamaica how are the people of Earth going to react. Are we going to embrace the new arrivals or is fear going to get the best of us and we end up destroying them as well. The aliens now have to learn to live in a world that is strange to them all the while protecting themselves from being hunted by the people that they had come to learn from and help.

This books is really good as it is so relevant and uses things that are happening currently such as pandemics and global warming. It also plays on people’s theories and fears  and makes us ask the question how would we react if we knew for certain we weren’t the only living beings. That other living beings lived on other planets.

Return To Alpha: A New Saga Begins by Wesley Britton is a well written and unique concept of aliens and their connection with Earth. This is a spin off from the author’s Beta-Earth Series. I didn’t realise this before I started reading however it did not detract from my enjoyment of the book.
I though the way the author created the story was really clever. He used a well known trope – aliens – and successfully put his own spin on it. It felt fresh and interesting and was really easy to get into. I thought all the characters were well done. They each added different things to the story and just enhanced the reading.
This is a new author to me and I enjoyed his style of writing. I will definitely be looking into his other series while I wait for the next one in this.

This was a very interesting read. It was well-thought out and developed. The characters had their own quirks. The action pulled you in from the beginning and didn’t let you go until the end of the book. The concept of aliens return to their damaged planet and not getting the warm welcome they hoped for. Kind of sad but look at the world as it is now. It’s not that hard to imagine it. It’s a book you should read. High recommend.

Return to Alpha by Wesley Britton – Review by Melissa Saxton
it’s 2040, the world has been decimated by plague after plague and every part of the world is out for themselves….until a spaceship lands with aliens turning earth upside down.
from your first introduction to the characters you know you are about to see the worst earth has to offer be thrown at these “alien” visitors. what you don’t expect is mistrust, fear, longing, traitors and love bloom inside this action packed story. as their adventure unfolds you find yourself page turning frantically to see if they make it safely out of a post apocalyptic world run by power and greed. can star crossed lovers prevail? can lies be forgiven? can different worlds and beliefs combine?
when you finish their journey your immediate hope is there will be more to come in this tale as you are left wanting to know if these characters can prevail.

Return To Alpha: A New Saga Begins by Wesley Britton is an interesting futuristic sci fi tale. The storyline is original and is a spin off from the original series Beta-Earth. Wesley explores different concepts that reminds me a bit of the concept from the TV series Stargate or Sliders, in that different parallel universes exist. He gives us an intriguing premise and he has a unique writing style. He has created a story which is complex and has a lot of layers. With an interesting array of characters that are unique and quirky. If you are a sci fi buff you will enjoy this tale.

Return to Alpha: A new Saga Begins appears is a standalone spin-off from the Beta-Earth Chronicles by Wesley Britton. This is a sci-fi adventure story, with dystopian and post-apocalyptic elements that gave the story some intensity.
Environmental issues and plagues have decimated the human population and fear and danger are ever present. So, when Aliens land in Jamaica- you can imagine the reaction from the humans, who are already on edge. What was meant to be a ‘coming home’ of sorts for the ‘aliens’ soon turns into a dangerous and dramatic cross country chase. And so, the adventure begins.
This is an original story, with an interesting plot and quirky characters. The story opens up the possibility of parallel worlds, a multi-verse where there are several “earths’- which is an intriguing concept. The only issue I had with it was that story does get a bit wordy at times, which interrupted the flow for me.

Thank you, Wesley Britton!

I enjoyed this scientific adventure story. This is a newer author for me and I look forward to reading more from him in the future. This is a well written story that is full of action and adventure. There is a lot going on in this story from humans to aliens to even some romance. The author’s use of detail made the story understandable, engaging and easy to read. This is a fast paced story that was entertaining and kept me turning pages to the end. I enjoyed how the characters were unique and interesting. They are strong and brought the story to life on each page. They truly made the story for me. I really enjoyed the growth of this story and the growth of the characters. This is a great story that is worth picking up. I highly recommend this book.
