The Jakkattu Vector
They came as saviors to a deteriorating Earth.
“The Jakkattu Vector is the first book in a saga that ultimately becomes a metaphor of humanity itself as it struggles to find its role in a world where humans are defective, aliens are taken into slavery, and priests engage in cruel genetic experiments. With Jakkattu, Ms. Tyler has created a new genre where she takes old traditions and myths and projects them onto a future, that, despite its high technology, it’s still polluted by slavery, prejudice, and exploitation. Her strong world building is made even more extraordinary by the exquisite detail and attention in creating new people and cultures.” ~ Midwest Book Review
“This wonderful epic book really deserves to be a bestseller, and I really hope that a lot of teens read it. I am in my thirties and I am very picky about sci-fi books, mainly gravitating to the classics like Asimov, Heinlein, and Phillip K. Dick. The Jakkattu Vector has a lot of depth, so it may become a new classic. There are themes of identity, linguistics, prejudice, slavery, global warming, and stagnating culture. I recommend it for all sci-fi fans. Also, the characters are each unique and memorable.” ~ Diana in SC
“Prejudice, slavery, racism, arranged marriage, genetics, cloning, religion, poverty, oppression; the author tackles these difficult subjects with grace, dignity, and thoughtfulness, examining each of those complex issues as seen through the viewpoints of multiple intriguing characters.” ~ Chris Fried
