5/5 Stars on Reader's Favorite - "Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Blackshade Machine to readers who adore superbly crafted plots with interesting twists and realistically-penned alien fiction that sounds intimidatingly believable."

5/5 Stars on BookView Review - "With Blackshade and his team’s resolve in the face of destruction, this science fiction tale becomes too real to take lightly."

5/5 Stars on The Prairies Book Review - "The characters, particularly Blackshade & Zahera, come alive in readers’ minds as they strategize their way out of one precarious situation after another while struggling with their inner demons."

Colonel Blackshade has been a Candaerican military officer his entire adult life. He loves his country, tolerates most of the population, and finds comfort in his daily routine.

Then the aliens appeared and twisted the course of his life into a knot.

Blackshade must appease the extraterrestrial visitors while simultaneously keeping the worst aspects of humanity’s population in check.

Should he fail, extermination, enslavement, and obliteration are all very real possibilities.

…this is a story of discovery, science, and survival…

…this is also a story about humanity striving to reach its full potential…

…but whether that potential is for the betterment of the species, or its desolation, has yet to be determined.
