Rowan Layne's alien tell-all book tour is underway and under siege in Salem, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC, by sanctimonious misogynists obsessed with the sex lives of others. Why is that?
Anti-alien fanatics continue wreaking havoc in this fifth novel of the Other Worldly series, including members of Congress who project their nefarious pursuits onto Rowan and her Red Orbiter and Labyrinthian pals. There is little they won't seek to destroy or control for diamond mining on Mars.
While Rowan tries to avoid the pressure to choose just one beau, a mysterious voice from her past has her questioning former romantic entanglements.
For a moment's escape from it all, she accepts an invitation for a galactic tour with the US vice president and new human-hybrid friends, where they discover a wellspring of otherworldly wonders, including a rejuvenating, crystal-filled exoplanet that expels negative vibes. If only they had shoes for Mom.
Rowan embraces the role of honorary aunt to the next generation of precocious extraterrestrials. But are they really alien babies if they're hatched in Vegas?
And those corrupt congressional cohorts had better think twice before demanding Rowan and others testify to a committee decrying alien citizenship, because the all-female Red Orbiter sextuplet preschoolers have lawyer-level arguments already prepared.
Will the exuberance of the young help Rowan spread the message about planetary degradation and overcome the searing desire to flee ignoramus inhabitants of Planet Earth?
