Half : The Makers
By Natalie Wright
Genre: Scifi/ Fantasy
Roswell. Area 51. The X-Files. You've seen the aliens known as "the Greys" in movies and on T.V. But what if everything you think you know about them is wrong?
And what if the Greys are only the beginning?
Erika Holt dodged death and departed Earth in an alien ship. It wasn't how she'd planned to spend her senior year. Is Erika on her way to paradise? Or to a hell worse than the underground lab she escaped?
The greys rescued Tex from the underground lab and promised him a life he could never have imagined. But what will he have to give up to become one with The Conexus?
Jack Wilson is still Commander Sturgis' prisoner, but a promise of freedom comes from an unlikely source. Will his liberation cost more than he's willing to pay?
On a nondescript planet on the far side of the galaxy, the M'Uktah have evolved from a wolf-like predatory creature into a highly advanced species that has mastered intergalactic travel. They are cultured. Refined.

This is a hard list to create because there are so many great books! And what I think is good changes over time. I decided to make a list of books that influenced me and/or my writing, or that are simply memorable.
I’m currently reading The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I’m only two books into this truly epic series, but I’m in love with protagonist Rand al’Thor, my new book boyfriend! He’s tall and strong, loyal, and humble yet commanding. Oh, and he can channel the “one power” (i.e. magic). A good-looking magic man that’s not an a**hole? Yes please.
