A Teen’s Review:
Xenogenic First Contact by Lance Erlick, is a sci-fi book about Dr. Elena Sweetwater Pyetrov. She is a scientist who is looking to colonize the moon or mars. Dr. Pyetrov wishes to achieve what her father(Dr. Alexis Pyetrov)could not and follow in his footsteps. This book is written in a couple of different perspectives like Elena and Marc. Marc is Elena’s on and off fiancée and managed to get on the shuttle with Elena which leads to him also getting into trouble. Elena eventually discovers a Knoonk which is a group of alien renegades who lost their civil war and who have taken over an outpost in our solar system to regroup. I would definitely recommend this book to teen sci-fi lovers.

Xenogeneic is a science fiction thriller about first contact with an alien race that lost their civil war. They need a new home—Earth. They refuse to share.
Dr. Elena Pyetrov’s father vanished near Jupiter 18 years ago. As an aerospace engineer, she travels out there to search for answers. Her ship is pulled off course and crashes. She suspects a hoax.
Unable to live in Earth’s toxic environment, the aliens kidnap and use humans to genetically modify their species to adapt. Behind schedule, the plan requires placating humans and finding the royal opposition hiding on Earth.
Within a closed cave system, the Knoonk monitor and control everything, using illusions, distractions, and social experiments to learn from their captives and keep them off balance. Resistance brings swift punishment to break the human spirit.
There can be no compromise. It is winner take all. Either the Knoonk dominate Earth to create a new power base or they perish. With time running out, Elena must dig deep to uncover the alien plan and find a way to stop them before the human race faces extinction.
