It is difficult to imagine a story about zombies, vampires, or aliens that has not already been told many times over. Immortal Peace, however, puts a twist on the common genre of science fiction by combining the elements of multiple well-known concepts. This story follows Mario Ramirez, a family man in Chicago, as he and his family witness the world erupt when aliens appear on Earth, not with a warning of waging war, but with a peace offering. The Gift is a promising medicinal panacea. When scientists first study the vaccine, they immediately find the potential value of the drug. Unbeknownst to the world, this medicine has some latent adverse side effects that are in no way beneficial. Now the world must wonder whether the gift is a genuine act of kindness, or possibly the most complex military coup known to mankind.

What I liked most about Immortal Peace was how there were so many different aspects and genres of stories woven into one. I am not a huge fan of science fiction; I often find the stories to be cliché, drawn out, and unrealistic. However, Tyler’s story had none of these elements. Instead, the story had multiple mini story lines and different elements happening at once, which made the story more real. For instance, the story opened by focusing on the main character’s family and home life. This not only gave the reader clues about each character’s personality, but it also was a treat for readers who need the emotional element to connect to a story. There was also a classic “young love” story intertwined in the novel (I won’t give away spoilers!) that had me smiling, and I’m sure other young readers would feel the same way. But Tyler’s story wasn’t emotional fluff either and there are more serious, “adult” moments too, like political and philosophical debates (which were very well researched and written), violence, and questions of morality and conscience. Again, these aspects made the story feel more real and made you think critically about what you believe and how these beliefs would be shaken in the midst of an alien invasion, much like the characters’ beliefs are. And of course, the alien invasion, which in itself was a page-turner! But that one you’ll have to read about that one for yourself :) Overall, I really enjoyed Tyler’s novel and I think there was a little something for every type of reader/fan in the story.
