Description

Two Worlds. Two Species. One Terrifying Secret.
Earth is overcrowded and polluted.
A new planet, Exilon 5, has been located.
But Exilon 5 is already occupied.

In 2163, a polluted and overcrowded Earth forces humans to search for a new home. But the exoplanet they target, Exilon 5, is occupied.

Having already begun a massive relocation programme, the World Government on Earth sends Bill Taggart to monitor the threat level of the Indigenes, the alien race that lives on Exilon 5. Bill is a man on the edge. He believes the Indigenes killed his wife, but he doesn’t know why. Until now.

Stephen has every reason to despise the humans and their attempts to colonise his planet. To protect his species from further harm, he must go against his very nature and become human.

Laura O’Halloran is losing her daily battle with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Her only chance at recovery is leaving the dark Earth for the sunnier climate of Exilon 5. She hopes her credentials as a World Government employee will secure her a one-way trip, but with the ever increasing relocation demand that is not a guarantee.

Her discovery of a deadly secret threatens her life and that of Bill and Stephen. A secret so great it could rip apart both worlds.

Becoming Human, part one in the Exilon 5 series, is a dystopian action adventure that you won’t want to put down.

    I like unpredictable books, and this was. However, the story ended a bit abruptly, to continue in book 2. The story made me think of what corporations are doing to the world today, essentially trashing it fast as they can as long as there is power, control, money to be made. It made me see how bad it can get and how far they will go. We are not too far from such a scenario ourselves. Do we want to end up like that? Think about it.

    This book was a complete waste of time. It seemed as if it was written by a youngster with an over active imagination.

    Very evolved sci-fi read intertwining two separate planets with different characters meshed together to create a completely believable & intelligent design that makes for an original series to read KSW

    As a fellow writer, I am jealous. I wish I had thought of this great idea. As a reader, I am thrilled. What a great, fun, book! I can't wait to get the remaining books in the series; And I'll be giving a few of the first book to friends and relatives as gifts this Christmas season.

    I enjoyed this book very much. Some of it was predictable but there were enough surprises to keep me reading.

    I'm very fond of exploration and technologically futuristic stories. This book brought to me the concept, but as a whole fell short. Ms. Green, it tells at the end of the book, lives in Dublin. I don't want to sound forward but it shows through frighteningly apparent when non-Irish characters throw words around like 'lad' and 'bloody'. I feel some of the writing was disconnected, where in some places simple technical mistakes were made in sentence structure, in others it was a disconnect in dialogue as a whole. It's an excellent story, just executed below standard.

    A long, drawn out lead into the next book
