Item description for Adopted Son by Dominic Peloso...

The invasion has begun.

An invasion not from the stars but from within our wombs. All over the world children are being born...different. Their features are alien, their DNA isn't human, their loyalties are unknown. As scientists, spies, and regular citizens race to make sense of this new disease they find themselves asking the same question: Is this the first wave of an alien assault on Earth?

Celebrated fiction author and bioterrorism expert Dominic Peloso weaves a complex tale of alien invasion, environmental catastrophe, and societal upheaval, in a world not too removed from our own. Adopted Son perfectly blends hard sci-fi with biting political and social commentary to create a truly modern literary masterpiece that transcends genres.

Reviews - What do customers think about Adopted Son?

Peloso has done it again!  Aug 14, 2007
Adopted Son isn't the first book by Dominic Peloso that I've had the pleasure to review. The first, City of Pillars, a sci-fi thriller taking place in a not too-distant future, was fuelled by a quite intricate storyline that, however, had a tendency to feel somewhat sloppy from time to time. But more than anything else, the book was absolutely packed with annoying typos and other weird errors in the proof.

And lo and behold, Adopted Son is in many aspects similar to City of Pillars, inheriting both its good as well as bad qualities. Once again, the reader is treated with the quite admirable mind of Peloso, but improbable as it may seem, those annoying typos and other errors in the proof once again make themselves known throughout the entire book.

Once again, the story is set in the future (even though in the beginning we're still in the contemporary era), where dark forces systematically try their utmost to torment mankind. One day, perfectly healthy and pregnant women all over the world start giving birth to what appears to be severely deformed children, and this deformities make the children closely resemble the traditional gray alien; large head, slant-eyed black eyes, disproportionately long and thin arms and legs, a complete lack of hair, and so on. In the beginning the medical establishment simply writes it off as a bizarre mutation, but one man, Ray Johnston, an intelligence agent for the U.S. government, thinks differently; disregarding the mutation-theory while favoring an extraterrestrial one. Or put simply, the Earth is under attack, and the aggressor is a still unknown extraterrestrial race, a race that's in the process of replacing Earth's human population with theirs. At first, most people choose to take Johnston's outlandish theories seriously, but as time goes by and more and more of these deformed alien-looking children are born, people find they have no choice but to actually listen to what Johnston has to say...

Overall, if you're a sucker for the mix political thriller and gloomy vision of the future, then Adopted Son is one book you'd not want to miss. Time and time again, different ufological references appear, especially the infamous Groom Lake, Nevada, better known as Area 51. Still, the thing that really pleases the mind is Peloso's brilliant social criticism. As the "alien" children grow older, they find themselves to be outcasts, rejected by mainstream society simply because they happen to look different. And that's something that still happens in this supposedly enlightened era of ours.
Adopted Son  Apr 11, 2007
We had orginally ordered "Adopted Son Washington, Lafayette, and the Friendship That Saved the Revolution" by David A. Clary. So we ordered again. My wife read this book and thought it is was excellent. However, I have not had the opportunity to read "Adopted Son" as yet. However, thank you for the offer to review it.
