"Earth is Ours," a fresh and uniquely original story line, bridges many genres. A symbiotic relationship develops between a self-aware female computer and an American Indian man dying of old age. A world stripped of technology by aliens forces this relationship dictated by mutual needs for survival. The main characters begin the fight of their lives, but before they can fight the fierce aliens, Levi and Amy must fight for control of who they will be jointly. What begins as conflict of minds develops into tolerance, then cooperation and finally love. This love of total oneness creates a unity of incredible power and strength that provides the means to fight the aliens. Female brains and male brawn unite to battle against incredible odds for the survival of the human race. The conflict of minds, action, adventure and suspense all interlace into a compelling and fast-paced adventure.
The characters are three dimensional with real emotions, not always perfect, but always interacting. The story, presented from differing viewpoints, allows the two main characters to depict some of the same events from both a male and female perspective. As they interface, the events are often seen from conflicting emotions and motivations, sometimes cynical and often humorous. This internal intercourse reveals the eternal struggle of male versus female, while combating monstrous aliens.
As expected, this fast-paced, action story has a strong appeal to men; while the romance aspect compliments the story, expanding the appeal for women. Additionally, one of the main characters, Amy, a particularly brilliant and forceful female, demands attention from both sexes. Her physical and masculine male counterpart represents everything Amy is not. Both characters and sexes are presented in a positive, although conflicting, way at times. The characters and story are captivating, and their saga continues in its sequel, “Target Earth.”
