The LearnerThe Learner

An alien from the dark side of the universe is sent to Earth on a mission. She’s called a Learner. When she falls in love with a human—which is against her specie’s covenants of exploration—her rulers order her to leave him. She refuses, risking not only the successful outcome of her mission on Earth, but also her life as well as the life of the man she loves.

About Author Alan NayesAlan Nayes

I live in Southern California but still consider myself part Texan by birthright. I was born in Houston and grew up in Dallas. I’ve resided in California since the mid 1980’s but get back to Texas as much as possible. My first two published novels–GARGOYLES and THE UNNATURAL are biomedical thrillers. Actually THE UNNATURAL could also fall into the horror genre as it is a pretty bizarre tale. BARBARY POINT is a love story about a successful young woman who falls in love with a fishing guide. It was written on a suggestion from a former agent.

My favorite football team is the Superbowl champs GREEN BAY PACKERS. Sorry Cowboys. But when GB is not on the gridiron–Go Dallas! Great Cheerleaders, too!

I enjoy the outdoors and as a side note I’m one of only a few individuals to ever swim across Wisconsin’s chilly Lake Winnebago. Does this make me a better writer–probably not.

When I’m not working on my next project, I enjoy relaxing and fishing at our family vacation home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

My review:

At first I had a hard time reading this story because I am dyslexic and my brain is trained a certain way to read and the author throws a lot of Alien language into the dialogue. After a few chapters I got used to it though and started to enjoy the story. The plot of the story is a Romeo and Juliet-esque tale of an alien on a fact finding mission to planet Earth who after centuries of being there becomes more like a human than is allowed by her people. A twist of fate lands her literally in the arms of a human. Most humans forget her the moment she walks away due to a memory garbling type effect she has on them. This human however seems to be immune to her and remembers her well enough to quickly fall in love with her. This completely goes against all of her people’s “contact laws” when she starts to fall in love with him. This story is a sweet romance with well developed characters.
