Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Ukiah Oregon's third adventure (following Tainted Trail and Alien Taste) begins with a missing boy. Ukiah is part wolf, part Native American, and part alien, and his special powers make him the best tracker on the planet. He's still in partnership with millionaire Max Bennett in the detective business. After Ukiak finds the missing boy alive in a storm drain, they learn that four other foster babies are also missing. Two are later found dead after being tortured. Then the same religious fanatic who murdered the babies kidnaps Ukiah's baby son Kittanning. Who is the fanatic and why does he need the three babies? How are the bad aliens, the Ontonguard, involved? And why are both the FBI and Homeland Security nosing about? Along the way to a gripping climax Ukiah and Max find love and a new partner for their detective business. Spencer's on her way to a SF coup, with a sure winner in Ukiah Oregon (who dies and is healed in every novel). Because of the sex, violence and cult activities, save this one for older, mature teens. Fans of The X-Files will love it. KLIATT Codes: A—Recommended for advanced students and adults. 2003, Penguin, Roc, 308p.,

VOYA
Ukiah Oregon-part alien, part wolf, part Native American-and his human partner, Max, return in this third installment in the science fiction-mystery thriller series, following Alien Taste (Roc, 2001) and Tainted Trail (2002/VOYA December 2002). They are tracking missing babies when Ukiah's son, Kit, is kidnapped, making the mystery personal. Joined by Ukiah's FBI agent girlfriend, Indigo, and Max's new love interest, Sam, they go up against a bizarre cult that mixes high tech and Christian mythology. The stakes suddenly rise for Ukiah and the alien part of his family when it becomes apparent that the cult is wielding a set of biological weapons brought to Earth by their nemesis, Hex. They were so certain that they had killed Hex, but is it possible that he is still out there trying to destroy humanity? There is some mention of events from the past two books, but those new to Ukiah's powers and complex familial relationships might remain confused a good way into the novel. Those familiar with the series will definitely enjoy this entry as well as the obvious promise of future volumes suggested by the somewhat open ending. One graphic sexual encounter and some drug references might cause problems in some young adult collections, but the series is worth the price for those who serve X-Files type science fiction readers. VOYA Codes: 3Q 4P S A/YA (Readable without serious defects; Broad general YA appeal; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12; Adult and Young Adult). 2003, Roc, 308p,

    Wen Spencer does it again!

    In this, the third book of Wen Spencer's Ukiah Oregon series, she shows us that not one drop of her talent has gone to waste. This book is as riveting and hard-to-put-down as it's predecessors, and will leave you clamoring for more at the end.

    Great sf romance

    Although the human race is unaware of it, there is a war going on between two rival groups of an alien race. The Ontongard infects humans and makes the species one of them, an individual cell in an organism. The pack aliens retain their individual identities while having access to the group memory. The pack wants to kill the Ontongard so they won't destroy the human race. Ukiah Oregon, half alien and half human is the only breeder on the planet and the Ontongard want him to create more of their kind........................ Oregon has a son who has been kidnapped. Ukiah, his friend Max, and the pack are doing all in their power to get him back but since the people who kidnapped him are human, they have to be very careful not to let any government official know about Kitt's alien origins. To make matters even worse, the kidnappers are using Ontongard biological weapons, which means that people who don't have any understanding of what they are doing are playing with something that could destroy the world................................ Wen Spencer has written an exciting science fiction thriller that stars a vulnerable and powerful hero who is impossible not to cherish. The war between the two alien factions feels real and believable in a Twilight Zone kind of way. The investigation of the kidnapping by aliens, Homeland Security, the FBI, the local Pittsburgh police and a human once possessed by the Ontongard is exciting to see unfold as each group has its own agenda. BITTER WATERS is a must read................. Harriet Klausner
