As a good fisherman, Stan hooked and drew me in from page one.  I couldn’t put the book down!  I read it all in one day—a work day no less!  He gives believable plot, characters, and weapons.  He leads you into the mind of his main character, a SEAL who has  returned from Afghanistan with both emotional and physical wounds.  His plot takes you from San Diego, to New Mexico, to Denver, and back to San Diego with a stop in between in another dimension.  Unlike most sci-fi which takes place out in the solar system, Alien Love is more like the movie The Avengers—based on earth.    Stan includes realistic content: from the rough language of military life, to fight scenes, to a sexual encounter with a girl.  He also adds in the scientific and tabloid stories to make the plotline real.  He weaves an intriguing story intended for mature readers. Want an enjoyable read?  Ready to see everyday life in a new light?  Then read Alien Love by Stan Schatt.

I recently picked this book up because the subject included aliens and other theoretical technology. These interest me greatly, not because I necessarily love technology, but because I prefer to know the truth about both these subjects-be them positive and negative. I found Stan’s knowledge about them to be dependable and well researched. Having said that, remember this is a work of science fiction. I looked up a few things along the way because I had not heard any references concerning them and found them to be fictional, what that says to me is while his story is fictional, it remains believable, even to someone with background in the subjects. He did a great job of not talking too far over the average reader’s head concerning theories, science, and military jargon. Mr Schatt explained many of his concepts in a manner that allows even younger teenagers to grasp the concepts and remain engaged while keeping adults who have background in the subjects equally interested. The prologue was a little slow for my likening, and it felt a bit jumbled to me. The rest of the story picked up speed right away, and Mr. Shatt keeps the momentum at a good pace right through to the conclusion with twenty eight three to five page chapters. It was easy to put down when I needed to, but equally easy to pick back up. Mr Schatt’s plot lines twisted and turned like a good rollercoaster should, keeping me guessing, and the point of the story was understandable and made sense. His characters mirrored what people from the walks of life they came from would be like, and each of them was likeable or annoying in the manner which befitted their nature and reason for being there. His conclusion may upset some readers, but it’s good none-the-less. This was all around a good read. Sci-Fi and Fantasy lovers alike should appreciate it. Alien Love is one I advise everyone read, because believe it or not, it’s quite relevant. Finally, in the defense of all author’s works, I hasten to remind you, the readers, that books are like shoes and opinions are like raindrops. Formulate your own opinion by experiencing it for yourself!

As someone who is fascinating with all things alien and a firm believer of life on other planets, I was drawn to this book. I mean, what could be better, aliens and romance (Roswell the television show fan here)? So, I dove in feet-first. Jack is a 25 year old ex-SEAL dealing with many issues, including popping prescribed pills. He’s minding his own business when he sees a beautiful woman (Cassandra) being abducted. He saves her and soon falls in love with her. She’s sexy, mysterious and an alien. He knows he’s treading on dangerous ground but he can’t help it. Meanwhile an old astronaut reveals one of the largest government cover-ups in history. The government has kept things from the American public. Go figure?!? Jack soon learns the truth about Cassandra and the other aliens. Using his SEAL contacts, he must avoid the clutches of the aliens or die trying. Filled with heart-pounding action and conspiracy theories, Alien Love is everything you want in a science-fiction thriller. That being said, I did struggle with this book. The author over-used the word SEAL. I get that Jack is a SEAL and I felt it pulled me out of the story to see the word SEAL so often. There were plot holes in the middle of the book and there were times when the story dragged. I also had a few deja vu moments where it reminded me of an episode (or five) of Battlestar Galactica. I don’t know if the author was paying homage to the television show or it was pure coincidence. If you love science-fiction and are into conspiracy theory, I recommend this book to you. My Rating: 3 stars

I am happy to recommend Alien Love by Stan Schatt. This sci-fi novel captured my interest from Chapter 1.  Now I want to see the film! I loved the realistic characters—both human and alien. The relationships are intriguing and believable. Jack and Cassandra were complex and convincing—both thinking and emotional. I enjoyed the human-alien romance, the family (father/mother with adult son), and the macho/navy seal man-to-man connections.  The descriptions are detailed and accurate—reminding me of driving through San Diego neighborhoods.  The dialogue is fresh and snappy! This adds just enough humor to the story and also keeps it real.  The characters became real and engaging.  The action packed plot included plenty of science and technology information to keep my attention! I will never again look at my high-tech friends without wondering if they are really from planet Earth.

This is an action-packed science fiction novel that delights those who are fascinated by the idea of aliens on our planet, those who are intrigued by futuristic technology, and those who love a great conspiracy theory. Set in San Diego,  Stan Schatt has created a fast-paced story that includes the bro-code of the Navy Seals along with inter-species relationships and political machinations of governments both earthly and other-worldly. The main character, who is a former Navy Seal, Jack, takes us along on quite a ride that has its share of mystery (who are the good guys and who are the bad ones?); we find ourselves as naive and gullible as he often is as to whom to trust The loyalty and sense of purpose among the Navy Seals is touching.  While the book explores the reasons for different alien groups’ purposes here on earth, it also touches on family relationships. religious extremism, capitalistic greed, governmental power, and the afterlife.  All in all, an enjoyable read.
