"Legend of Aurora"

1897 - The human race almost falls victim to malevolent alien invaders...and we never knew. With over six billion inhabitants is it about to happen again?

Legend of Aurora - A gifted, irascible small town detective (inactive Recon Marine) with a rather warped sense of humor, Darrell Ulysses Bone, known by all as just 'Bone', becomes involved in a 100 plus year old mystery surrounding an alien spacecraft crash near the north Texas town of Aurora.
Bone befriends a diminutive woman being threatened by the heavy-handed tactics of an unscrupulous oil exploration company trying to grab her land for a gas play. She is also in danger from a malevolent race of aliens known as the Reptoids.
"You have been warned," the alien said as he pointed a silver tube at Bone. A greenish beam reached out...
Bone's godfather and shaman, Padrino, deduces that the diminutive woman is actually a survivor of that legendary 1897 spacecraft crash and is stranded on our planet. "Lucy is not of this world, Bone...I believe she is indeed the missing Annuna..."

    Having read previous works by the writing team of Buck Stienke a

    Having read previous works by the writing team of Buck Stienke and Ken Farmer, I approached this book with some preconceived notions. I expected good storytelling and great dialogue…and I got both. Character development moved along at a nice pace, and I soon empathized with them, something that is vital to keeping a reader's interest. Another element, however, had been magnified beyond what I have come to expect, It took me a while to catch on, but it finally dawned on me, humor! It was present in their earlier work, but was now evident in abundance.
    I suppose I should warn the overly-sensitive, politically-correct crowd that they might be mildly offended by some of the comments of the characters in this story. Too bad! Occasionally drifting close to the sophomoric in nature, often due to the pranks perpetrated on other characters by Bone, the irreverent and to-hell-with-authority, full-speed ahead, occasional loose cannon detective who seldom worries about consequences, the pace of the action never slows for very long, and kept me smiling and downright laughing at the antics and comments from more than one character.
    Did I mention there is a strong element of science fiction in the book? Based upon newspaper reports from the turn of the last century, and well-thought out, it doesn't get in the way of a good police story, and blends contemporary skullduggery by an oil company with an honest story of friendship that will leave you hoping for more contact from one extra-terrestial race…and the annihilation of another.
    I have to admit, I've become a fan of Stienke and Farmer, and while I will continue to read their Black Eagle Force Series, as well as the stories of "The Nations," I hope they will continue with the story of "The Legend of Aurora." Maybe they'll even bring in the characters from their other books. Bass Reeves could ride along with Bone, or the Black Eagle Force could somehow save the day. It will be interesting to see where the story goes.
