BOOK REVIEW: When Gods Roar
by Réal Laplaine
ABOUT THE BOOKS (from Amazon):
A stranger from another world shows up on Earth, seeking refuge. In exchange he offers up all the knowledge and technology from the world he escaped – but there’s a catch: Earth must first abolish all nuclear weapons before he will hand over technology that will literally catapult our culture to the stars.
The thrilling story that ensues, reveals the depth of our existing cultural dilemma, as nuclear powers refuse to let go of their nuclear stockpile, despite the incredible offering, and the true face of those leaders becomes apparent as they hijack democracy and make it clear that they are more interested in retaining power than serving the interests of the people and the future of the race.
Profound, with deep philosophical and existential insights, this story will not disappoint, offering up new perspectives about our existence, how the Universe was formed, why it was created, and our roles in it. When Gods Roar is more than a thrilling read, it is a journey beyond the edges of mediocrity, stretching our minds and imagination to entirely different realms.

The author sent me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, so here it is…
I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would when I first started it. An alien comes to Earth and reveals himself to Mia, a woman whose life mission is to prove that extraterrestrials are real. The story flips back and forth between present day and 20 years earlier when Té’Lal first comes to Earth. The book causes the reader to wonder:
Could there be life out there on other planets?
If so, will our planet ever be under attack?
Would it be possible for an alien to form a romantic bond with an Earthling?
I never read Sci-Fi, so the story was a little outside of my element, but overall it was an enjoyable story and a quick read.
