Synopsis

What humans want from the Silver Planet is water. What they find is a race of humanoids who are sentient, but as emotionless and serene as the plants and placid lakes they tend.

B, captain of the mission, doesn’t believe that the “Silvers” are intelligent, and lets his crew experiment on them. But then he bonds with Imms, who seems different from the others—interested in learning, intrigued by human feelings. And B realizes that capturing, studying, and killing this planet’s natives has done incalculable damage.

When a fire aboard B’s ship kills most of the crew and endangers Imms, B decides to take him back to Earth. But the simplicity of the Silver Planet doesn’t follow them. Imms learns the full spectrum of human emotions, including a love B is frightened to return, and a mistrust of the bureaucracy that wants to treat Imms like a test subject, even if they have to eliminate B to do it.

  3. I have not read any books by this author, but I've been trying to find some good sci-fi ones! This sounds a little more my style so I really want to try it! :)

  4. Strange coincidence, I was thinking about alien life earlier when I heard on the news they found a new planet on the edge of the solar system. I think it takes over 700 years to orbit the sun. That led me to thing we, as a whole, are so not ready to meet aliens like the people in J.A.'s book.

  5. I'm sorry, but Sci-Fi is definitely not my thing... Congrats on the new release though and I really hope very few readers will share my taste and the book will be a total success!

  7. I think I remember seeing this book with the original cover (and different pen name!!) that my friends loved! So maybe I will give it a try even if sci-fi is not really my genre LOL

  9. SciFi is not really my thing either but maybe I just haven't read the right story to get me hooked. I do enjoy JA Rock's more contemporary novels.

  12. I love sci-fi and I love one that just wows me and has such an innocent character in it. This seems like one that could be a favorite.
