This is a story of Androxen, the sea, a nice bunch of aliens of the Andromeda galaxy, Samira, and some serious citizens of earth. It begins with Androxen of the seas, who can only breed males and so ever on the lookout for siren-mates in a waterful life together. But the old sage androx and the equally mature sea-salt androx are Androxen of another sort. Appalled by the state of seas and land around, they badger aliens for blueprints for an all right world. And as the old salt plots across galaxies with his infallible plotter, unbanded frequency waves tingle with vibes of alien tracks. The rest is history, or rather, geography, as final outcome is an earth with extended platforms. In its past, this planet had been exploited, explored, and exalted in song, word, and deed, but now it could breathe again. Spacelings, normally visualized vandalizing the environs, reverse roles here, getting humans out of the hole and giving the planet an earthly chance. Good, clean humour. But underlying the light tone, there is an anxiety over the crisis confronting earthlings and an earnest hope that it ends in a happy beginning.

My thoughts:

Have you ever started a book and wasn't completely sure what you were even reading about.  This is that type of book for me.   It is broken up into three sections and I am so glad that I continued reading into the second section because it started to make more sense and I could see what the author was trying to comment on. 

The book uses a very heavy vocabulary and I did have to look up several words to see exactly what the author was trying to write about.   If you can get passed the unusual writing style that the author uses it is a great short story to read.  Overall the author is commenting on society today.  I found portions of the book to be funny, which kept me reading on.

The illustrations in the book are awesome I felt like they helped for me to envision what the author was seeing while writing this book. 

One thing I would suggest for the book is to have a disclaimer at the beginning regarding the overall theme so that people don't get turned off quickly due to the style and language because it is worth reading and getting a different perspective of the problems in society today. 

I would suggest this as a book to read when you just need a complete break from your normal reading habits.   Be prepared to look up a few words for a definition and also be prepared to reread sections to get the bigger picture.   This is a super quick read and could be done in one sitting.  

I received a copy of this book from the author Samira for the purpose of providing an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
