I am not an aficionado of sci-fi or fantasy novels. But this book
caught my attention. An unassuming title- but with a cover
image that reminds one of the ancient Greek mythologies- I was
intrigued- and what I found in EARTH IS OURS is one grand
fantasy novel- that borders on mythological status.

The novel is the story of two diverse personalities- Amy and
Levi. The first chapter takes us through a painful period in Levi’
s life. We slowly begin to understand that Amy is the source of
inspiration for Levi- his strength and weakness. But then a
sudden twist comes (one of the few hundred unexpected
twists in the storyline), we understand that Amy is not a person
but a computer…’a symbiotic self aware  computer’ without
which Levi is not complete. It seems that aliens have taken
control over the world of Amy and Levi and each day is a fight
for survival. The highlight of the book is the inter-moving
perception of events from the female angle (through the eyes
of Amy) and the male angle (through Levy).

I must confess…sometimes the sci-fi was too much for me- but I
think for an ardent fan of sci- fi/ fantasy thriller- this one will be
a grand and welcome read. I really enjoyed the concept of
“oneness”- the concept of ASONE. Didn’t understand what
ASONE means….I will tell you- then otherwise- why don’t you
read the book.

Highly recommended- I for one am on the lookout for the
sequel TARGET EARTH. Only one regret- I think we will have to
wait for sometime before the book hit the stands. A grandiose
debut.
