Belinea - Season One: The Mission is a work of fiction in the science fiction, suspense, and political thriller sub-genres, and was penned by author Andrew Mack. Written for adult reading audiences, the work does contain scenes of a sexual nature as well as the presence of graphic violence and explicit language usage throughout. This visceral and immersive work takes us to a decimated Earth trying to pick itself up after a devastating pandemic, at a time when another race, the enlightened Belineans, arrives to save the day. But being part of this new empire does not spell total salvation for Earth, and it falls to one plucky young ambassador to fight for the planet’s independence.
Author Andrew Mack has created an immersive and almost compulsive read with this quick and stylish form of a science fiction novel. I enjoyed the unique episodic feel to the novel, which takes us through separate but connected events as we discover more about living under Belinean rule, and the true nature of the proposed saviors of Earth. Fans of dialogue-heavy reads will enjoy the structure and find it fast-paced, delivering a great array of characters with uniquely-developed voices and lines that move the plot along into deeper intrigues. As an opening season of events, the conclusions are satisfying within themselves, but also leave plenty of space for future growth. Overall, I would highly recommend Belinea - Season One: The Mission as a fantastic start to a high concept and high octane science fiction thriller series that will surely have much more to offer in the future.
