As an initiation rite into a gang, a prospective gang member is coerced into vandalizing a sacred shrine but is unexpectedly inducted into the role of mediator between rogue aliens and humankind when an alien ship intervenes in the exciting science-fiction novel, Alien Mission (The Peacemaker Series: Book 1) by Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira. When Victor's brother Julio forces him to tag a priceless relic in a two-centuries-old chapel, an unexpected interference occurs. Victor is hauled up by a beam of light and tossed around beneath the massive spaceship hovering above him. Julio runs off, leaving Victor to his fate. When the tractor beam releases Victor, he hears the word, "Peacemaker." Gaby witnesses Victor's abduction and runs to help him. Bruised, battered, and burned, Victor accepts a ride from Gaby. However, before he makes it to her car, a strange humanoid creature attempts to kidnap her. Victor instinctively knows what to do and sends the alien creature away. Where did these aliens come from, and what do they want with humankind? What role does Victor play in their plans?

Alien Mission (The Peacemaker Series: Book 1) by Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira is a shiver-inducing science-fiction novel set in the Arizona desert. Spectacular! Cleverly written, it is a spine-tingling tale that sparks the imagination, induces nightmares, and makes us afraid to walk alone in the dark. I was captivated from the first page and couldn't put the book down until I reached the shocking conclusion. Complete with nightmarish abduction scenes, an intense and suspenseful plot, and bizarre, otherworldly beings, it is an extraordinary tale with a compelling and hair-raising storyline. This exciting science-fiction novel promises to thrill everyone who relishes alien invasion-inspired stories. Some of the scenes have sexual inferences that are more suitable for a mature reader.

Alien Mission by Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira is the first book in The Peacemaker Series and chronicles the life of Victor Encinas as he begins his role as the peacemaker. Victor is an ordinary young man whose life changes after an alien experience. The last peacemaker who controlled the rogue son of an alien high priest is dead and Victor has to step into this role. More people are involved in the fight against alien control and enslavement. Gaby is one of those people and the plot adds a further romantic twist in the story thread that involves Gaby and Victor. From the local police, the FBI, the local Indian communities and other groups, everyone is intrigued by the aliens and each group plays a part.

Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira’s Alien Mission is riveting right from the start. The opening scene presents Victor’s first encounter with the aliens and the beginning of his friendship with Gaby. The gripping sub-plots make the book quite engaging. The pace is fast and there are a lot of interesting revelations along the way. I liked the descriptions of the aliens. Their appearance in the story was usually sudden and elicited dread. I also liked that a detailed explanation was offered on the origin of the position of the peacemaker and the different factions that made up the alien group. There were many sub-plots and themes. Readers of science fiction will find Alien Mission: The Peacemaker Book 1 captivating. It is full of unexpected twists.
