The Homecoming – J. Scott Coatsworth

The Homecoming - cover2I decided to try this thing called Net Galley and for my first taste I selected this title. It was short enough that I thought it would be a good introduction.

A tale about romance and exploration in the wilds of new earth. I enjoyed it for what it was, a concise romance between two men from two different worlds and yet, from the same roots. If it had been longer, a bigger build-up of the love story would have been welcomed. In some ways it was a bit fast for me. But nevertheless, it was a nice romantic snack.

I thought the concept of how new earth and the remaining humans evolved to be quite interesting and only wished that the tale had dug deeper into the world creation, and the other characters that surrounded the story.

I’m a greedy reader, I’ll admit—always wanting more.

I appreciated the blend of genres, Sci-Fi, Romance, and LGBT fiction all rolled into one.

If looking for an entertaining diversion one rainy afternoon or sunny, then I’d give this story a try.

It is not released yet, but the story should be available the end of July.

Synopsis: When his own world is destroyed, Aldiss and his crew barely manage to escape, leaving friends and lovers behind. What was meant to be an exploratory trip back to the home world turns into a mad dash for survival.

When they awaken from stasis on Earth, which was abandoned by humanity five centuries before, they must quickly learn about their new home. While exploring the region around the ship, Aldiss meets Hari, a shape-changer, whose people harbor secrets that might cost the crew their lives.
