Visitors from New Earth City by Gregory Saur is an action-packed sci-fi adventure. In it, we are introduced to two worlds that couldn’t be more different. The first is New Earth City where there are gamers, quests, and portals. Here we follow two brothers Felix and Rafe and Felix’s Muon partner, Tyson. It is a world of magic and mystery, with overlords and monsters. The other is a post-pandemic world in Littleton, Virginia where we meet Samantha and Tommy. Their only source of adventure is provided by the books they read. Their worlds collide when a mission to retrieve a valuable item goes wrong. Felix and Tyson are attacked and, much to their surprise, get hurt. In a world of health points and instant healing, this is abnormal and akin to sabotage. To escape imminent death, they jump into the nearest portal, which leads them straight to Sam and Tommy’s world. Without weapons and no way back, they try to adapt. Meanwhile, bounty hunters are after Felix and want him dead, while abducting Tyson in the process. Out of frustration, Sam tosses the valuable item on the ground from which a beanstalk grows. When joined by Rafe do they dare climb the beanstalk and will it lead back to New Earth City or something more sinister? Will the bounty hunters get what they came for and will someone lose their life?
Visitors from New Earth City by Gregory Saur is an exciting book that I loved reading. I enjoyed all of the details, from the clothes to the weapons and the monsters. I liked the Lionhurst Warriors the most. This book was so much fun, with Felix being the arrogant teenager he is and his brother being the wiser one. I loved the bond between Tyson and Felix and found it to be endearing. Sam was an interesting character and I loved her way of dealing with things in a manner far beyond her years. I liked the fact that the story played out in the current post-pandemic time. You can relate to Tommy’s frustration and Sam’s inability to adapt. By any standards, this is a wonderful book with interesting characters and great development. You were never left in the dark while being shown a world far beyond your wildest dreams. This is a thrilling ride and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves sci-fi and fantasy.
