Alien Hunter - Star Trooper by David K. Scholes
Alien Hunter is based on the 12 part Alien Hunter Series in the Golden Visions SF Magazine 1/2011 to 2/12.
There is always a time when you want to introduce a young reader to the science fiction genre. Very few books now lend themselves easily to the YA group of readers while still being able to entertain the more seasoned reader.
Alien Hunter is a clever mix of mercenary and mysterious alien. Alien Hunter’s Earle is a humanoid - human to any that know him with a mysterious mix of powers and weapons. Earle has come to Earth on a mission. He is hunting beings called “shifters” who have nothing but disdain for any other beings other than themselves.
What makes Alien Hunter an easy read for the beginner is the novella length and for the seasoned reader in the alien mercenary theme, it makes an excellent quick read. For the beginner the book is an excellent introduction to a popular venue without inundating the reader.
