Roswell. Area 51. The X-Files.
You've seen the spindly-legged, bulbous-headed aliens known as 'the Greys' in the movies and on television.
You may think you know all about them.
But what if everything you think you know is wrong?
And what if the Greys are only the beginning?
At the far reaches of the galaxy, the M'Uktah have evolved from a wolf-like creature into an advanced society that has achieved interstellar travel. They're sophisticated. Elegant. Technologically savvy.
Wright's follow-up to her award-winning sci-fi debut has been called "An enthralling, page-turning, sci-fi adventure that has the makings of an epic!" ~ The Wishing Shelf reviews.

H.A.L.F.: The Makers written by the fantastic, and award winning author, Natalie Wright starts off strong and striking with amazingly descriptive writing. The story follows two groups of protagonists, Erika, Ian, Dr. Randell and Tex taken via the Grays, an alien race who hosted a massive aura of mystery. Tex is being held separate from the others. The group believes themselves to be on an alien ship. However, Tex has information that could show otherwise. The aliens rejected Jack and left him on earth to the group's confusion, while Commander Sturgis, starting off with a messy confrontation with her superior, holds knowledge of what's to come. Every character has a defined purpose and is finely crafted; each plays their role, with unique perspectives and interesting points of view. The writing is incredibly descriptive and sets the scene for each character. However, there is a lot of switching back and forth between different characters that made the story hard to keep in perspective at times. On the other hand, the way the author meticulously develops the mystery throughout the story, and how carefully crafted each character is, kept be glued to the pages. They were like finely ticking cogs working towards the bigger picture. The opening segment was one of the most captivating pieces I've read in a long time, the detailed description of Erika inside the alien ship was fascinating and had me hooked from the very first page. Most characters are written in a very personal way that make them feel real and make it easy to understand their fears, pride, and personality. The pacing of the story helped drive the mystery and allowed time for characters to fully develop. H.A.L.F The Makers has a fantastic story, filled to cover to cover with excellent description and brilliant creative freedom. Personally, I knew I was going to finish the book from cover to cover the moment I read the first chapter. A short prologue would have been a welcome addition for new readers. But none the less, pure passion and creativity eased me into the story, and before I knew it, I was heavily invested.
Reviewed by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite In a simply excellent new addition to the genre of science fiction written for young adults, H.A.L.F.: The Makers (Volume 2) by author Natalie Wright, readers will be taken on a fantastic adventure. Erika Holt is back in this edition, and she's escaping Earth on an alien ship after narrowly evading death. She has no idea where she might end up, but she hopes it's better than the underground lab that she left. Tex was rescued by the greys, and they seem to be promising him a life beyond compare, but he's not quite sure he can trust them. And Jack Wilson is still the prisoner of Commander Sturgis. He has a chance of escape, but he might be risking everything if he takes it. Will these three survive what they are going through? Only time and this awesome story will tell. I very much enjoyed H.A.L.F.: The Makers (Volume 2). Author Natalie Wright has a truly unique voice in this genre, and, coming from someone who reads a lot of science fiction, I can honestly say that. Readers who enjoy a creative read, an epic story line, an adventurous and thrilling book, or just piece of science fiction, whether they are young adults or not, will love H.A.L.F.: The Makers (Volume 2). I highly suggest that any such readers pick up this book as soon as possible, but make sure you have enough time to read it from start to finish; you simply won't want to put it down!
