"Fugitive from Asteron"
Book Review by John Dick

I love it when I read a new book whose story grabs my attention from the start and captivates me through to the end. It is rare, but I have just read such a book.

Fugitive from Asteron, the latest novel by author Gen LaGreca, is not only a well written and fast-paced science fiction adventure story, it is also a story about love and the rebirth of one man’s attitude and spirit about life as a free individual who was enslaved for years in a faraway tyrannical world. The novel’s basic intrigue, however, arises from the age-old universal struggle of tyranny versus individual freedom, in the eventual conflict of these two opposing worlds, and which of these worlds will survive.

But what I personally loved most about this new novel was Ms. LaGreca’s continual injection of the amazing wonders discovered in the world of freedom by the novel’s main character, Alex, despite his own heroic struggles to save that world. Ms. LaGreca’s wonderful descriptions of the free world’s inventions, private property, prosperity, and the inhabitants’ character and relationships were so enticing. I found myself wanting to learn more and more about the story’s world of freedom, a place where I would want to live.

We normally don’t get to taste such a view of how things could be in a free world from contemporary literature. It is always so refreshing when we do. And my impressions were confirmed from this particular quote in Fugitive from Asteron:

“… I laughed – easily, freely, lavishly, the way we Earthlings do.”

I love this review of my new novel, FUGITIVE FROM ASTERON, because it succinctly describes both the plot and theme.

An Action Adventure Story Of Individualism And Love
By Randall Saunders

"Fugitive From Asteron" is Gen LaGreca's third published novel, but the first that she wrote. I've been looking forward to it since I had an opportunity to see a very early draft. It has been worth the wait.

"A science fiction adventure story for young adults and the forever young," she describes it, but it is much more than that. It is a grand picture of two opposites: a world of totalitarian oppression versus a world of individual freedom.

The picture is in the form of a fast-paced story of mystery, intrigue, and love. The mad ruler of the world of oppression seeks to solve the problems of his world by conquering and taking over the free world—and the free world does not even know it is being threatened. Only one man is able to discover the nature of that threat, but he is from the world of oppression. Only one person is able to help him but she is from the free world and hates anyone or anything from the world of oppression.

The inevitable clash of cultures that occurs when they meet furthers the unlikelihood they will be able to prevent the destruction of the free world.

This is a wonderful, fast-paced, science fiction yarn, especially for those who enjoy depictions of individualism and a heroic battle for freedom.
