D.L. Cross has loved science fiction ever since she was a young girl and fell for Major Don West on television’s Lost in Space. To this day, she still quotes the show, though her favorite lines were spoken by the robot and the antagonist. Parallel universes or alternate realities, aliens or dinosaurs, superpowers or super viruses, time travel or AI… no sci-fi theme is off limits and all of them fascinate her. D.L. Cross also writes other genre fiction under the name Staci Troilo, and you can find more information about all her identities and all her work at her website: https://stacitroilo.com.
A cross between Indiana Jones and Men in Black!
When emergency broadcasting sends out a notice of the impending invasion of aliens, disgraced archeology professor Landon Thorne suddenly becomes a hot commodity.
Betrayed by the woman he loved- an AATIP Agent- Thorne decides to help a fellow agent instead of her and lands himself in hot water at the hands of a band of merciless mercenaries.
The race is on to save the human race. Landon must use his archeological theories to make contact with the aliens and avert a worldwide crisis before it’s too late, but all is not as it seems. The danger he faces on earth may be more than anything from outer space.
An amazing amount of research went into this story and lifts it above the average read for me. I enjoy learning new things when I pick up a book and this one taught a bit of ancient history as well as scientific theory that was truly interesting.
The author did a fantastic job building tension and yet the layers of humor kept the subject matter from becoming too forbidding.
I give The Gate 5+ lovely kisses- well worth the read!
