- Warning*** This series honestly reflects the brutality of our world. If you are a sensitive reader, this is NOT for you.*** Contains violence.***
- This series
is a work of fiction and as such, controversial points of view may be written to enhance the readers experience. The author's goal has been to make the reader think critically and the views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of the author. The author
would like, however, to help readers realize what detrimental effects we have created for our wildlife.*** Series was written before 2010 and first published in August 2012. Any similarities to today's economic challenges are coincidental.
Two hundred years of tender love between man and alien, political downfalls, wanton violence of unspeakable order tempered with laughter, family loyalty and hope is the thrilling vehicle by which Ms. Accinni
conveys her cautionary tale of the merciless disrespect man gives his planet and the vulnerable creatures entrusted to him.
This charming, yet brutal saga will chill and surprise you as it foretells the selfishly destructive path man has followed since
his species evolved. It pulls no punches while allowing Netty and Baby's influence to transcend mortal life as the world dances toward depraved indifference, introducing other characters along the ride that readers will laugh and shed tears with, and learn
J. K. Accinni was born and raised
in Sussex County before moving to Randolph, New Jersey, where she lives with her five dogs and eight rabbits, all rescued.Ms. Accinni’s passion for wildlife conservation has led her all over the world, including three trips to Africa, where ten years
ago she and her husband fell in love with a baby elephant named Wendi that had been rescued by the incomparable David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Wendi is the inspiration for the character Tobi, the elephant featured in her fourth book titled Hive.
The character of Caesar is inspired by a real life iconic tiger from Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota. Mrs. Accinni also invites you to visit her webpage at www.SpeciesIntervention.com. Readers are encouraged to comment about the book
or your own creature experiences.
I will be the first to admit that I am not a huge fan of science fiction nor of dystopian fantasy. However, having reviewed
this book I can honestly say that I was engrossed by this series. It worked for me because the fantasy is described in such realistic terns that it becomes believable, well almost!
I enjoyed reading about Netty’s world as she encounters
Baby and if Ms Accinni didn’t write fantasy, she would be equally good at historical fiction. In the other two books we see a future where man’s destructive element is paramount and the author’s passion for wildlife shines through.
This series portrays a world that could be all too possible if man doesn’t rein in his worst tendencies. At times the action is brutal but I have read worse and is salvaged by the humanity of those who have been chosen by Baby or Echo to be Elders.
The political background that runs throughout books two and three is chilling and serves as a warning to everyone about extremism. I had thought the trilogy was complete but it appears that I will have to read book four to find out what happens
to Joe and his family and if the evil plans of the Imans are thwarted.
This might just be the book that converts me to a science fiction fan.
