H.A.L.F.: The Makers (H.A.L.F. – 2) by Natalie Wright
“The Makers” is the follow-up to Natalie Wright’s multiple award-winning debut science fiction novel “H.A.L.F.: The Deep Beneath.” “We’ve seen grey aliens on T.V. and in movies. We may think we know all about them. But what if everything we think we know is wrong?” Erika Holt dodged death and departed Earth in an alien ship. It wasn’t how she’d planned to spend her senior year. Is Erika on her way to paradise? Or to a hell worse than the underground lab she escaped? The greys rescued Tex from A.H.D.N.A. and promised him a life he could never have imagined. But what will he have to give up to become one with The Conexus? Jack Wilson is still Commander Sturgis’ prisoner, but a promise of freedom comes from an unlikely source. Will his liberation cost more than he’s willing to pay? Caught up in their personal battles and focused on our war with the grey aliens, will any of them realize the true threat that looms over us all before it’s too late?
Erika and Ian have been taken by the greys. They have been infected by a virus and have to find the antidote. Tex has caught the eye of the alien queen. She is showing him how compatible they would be together as long as his human side disappears. And Jack has been left on Earth. With the greys attacking it is up to him to protect those that held him against his will.
There is a lot happening in this story. But it is not that hard to keep up with the different characters. I love how the chapters have each person’s name so you could follow along. There is a lot of action and some great fight scenes and what would you expect from a race of aliens that would rather eat us than help us.
I loved this book but I do recommend starting this series with book 1, H.A.L.F.: The Deep Beneath. It did take me a little to catch up to the story but I will say that the glossary in the beginning did help.
If you want a great alien story that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, look no further. This is a great book. Now I’m going to read The Deep Beneath to get caught up.
