Overview

When one of the Strake brothers is out prospecting with a metal detector he finds what he thinks are peculiar little gold nuggets midway up the Mogollon Rim, a drop off from the Colorado plateau. When Gary Strake's girlfriend Mona calls John Strake for help because his brother is acting peculiar, she is dead when he arrives, her throat torn out. Gary swears there's something else, something big, buried where he found the little gold colored objects. He also thinks some one or some thing has been stalking him. When the brothers and the sheriff begin investigating Mona's murder they are attacked by a creature that looks like a horribly mutated cougar. Then when they find that the nuggets have an almost fatal attraction, they know they need help--and soon! Teaming up with two attractive female scientists from the University of New Mexico, an investigation begins, both there and at the site on the Mogollon rim where a suspected spaceship lies buried. But nothing is as it seems and solving one problem only leads to numerous others, until the brothers and the scientists wonder if they'll even live long enough to solve a mystery that threatens to take them all the way off earth. 2008 EPPIE award finalist.

    Don't Miss This SciFi Thrill Ride

    Be careful what you look for...you might find it. Gary and John Strake, two brothers with itchy feet and an unquenchable thirst for learning, adventure, and discovery. They each travel along their own path to discover new treasures but when Gary¿s girlfriend calls John, concerned about his brother, their adventures and way of life take an interesting turn. Everything is set in motion with the discovery of tiny, oval shaped objects, gold colored and no larger than grains of rice. These objects are more than they appear, they hold many secrets. Where did they come from? What do they do? As John travels to check on his brother he steps in the middle of a murder scene as Gary¿s girlfriend is found dead in their home ¿ her throat ripped out. Soon after the discovery Gary calls the sheriff who is killed by an unknown creature that attacks the Strake brothers who, in return, kill it. The creature is moved to a research facility where the brothers meet an unlikely source of help, resources, and, for John, a chance for romance. What will they discover when they study the creature? Is it of this earth? As big as the mystery of the golden objects seem to be, there is a bigger discovery to be made. How did those golden objects get into the ground where Gary found them? Will the creatures that placed them there come back to collect? From the first word, Darrell Bain delivers an action packed, thriller that mixes both science fiction and adventure. ¿Alien Seeds¿ will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to get absorbed by the discovery and consequences of the little golden seeds and what they mean. The more you read the more you feel the tension building as the Strake brothers and their friends race against an alien species with unbelievable intelligence, and amazing strength. The strength of ¿Alien Seeds¿ lies in the crisp plot, use of scientific terminology, and strong characters. The characters capture your attention quickly and connect with you quickly. It is easy to see the Strake brothers as those friends in the neighborhood who act crazy but really are intelligent. Author Darrell Bain¿s novel is a true science fiction thrill ride in every sense of the word. Think Indiana Jones meets Men In Black but in the form of a book. I highly recommend ¿Alien Seeds¿ for anyone who enjoys aliens, creatures, intrigue, and a little romance mixed in.
