Welcome to another Novel Publicity tour! We’re so excited for the release of The Jakkattu Vector by P.K. Tyler that we wanted to celebrate with a great giveaway featuring a Kindle Fire, one of a kind Jakkattu Vector bookmark and a special book bundle from the author herself!
My take on this book:
While my usually wheelhouse focuses on the technology sector, I wanted to introduce you to a nice, engrossing sci-fi fantasy book that evokes the best Geo-political aspects of the Dune book series, with a strong, female protagonist slant, like Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Beatrice (Tris) from the Divergent book/film series. As each story development takes place, the reader becomes engrossed in the moral and ethical dilemmas faced by Sabaal, as she rises from lab rat, to potential rebellion leader. In a parallel storyline, Julip Thorne seeks answers to the underpinning actions that allowed the leadership of the Greenland Reservation to establish itself, and at what cost. How can these two characters change the world, in which they exist? You will have to read this book to get these and other questions answered. In short, 4.4 starts out of 5.0 stars
About the Book
Julip Thorne questions whether there is more to life beyond the barren dirt, acidic seas, and toxstorms her people work and die in. Living in poverty on the withering Greenland Human Reservation, she wonders if the alien Mezna goddesses are truly as holy as the temple preaches. Julip begins to dig deeper into the history of the planet and her leaders’ rise to power. But nothing can prepare her for the atrocities she uncovers.
Meanwhile, Jakkattu prisoner Sabaal suffers constant torture and heinous medical experiments as her Mezna-priest captors seek to unlock the key to her genetic makeup. Escaping from captivity, she finds herself suddenly alone on the hostile alien planet of Earth. To survive, she’s forced to work with the same Mezna-human hybrids she’s loathed her entire life, but the more they work together, the more they realize that their enemy is the same.
When humans and Mezna collide, will Sabaal turn out to be the genetic vector the Mezna have been searching for all along, or will she spark the flame that sets a revolution ablaze?
