It's not every day you come across a futuristic humor novel that makes you want to rant and rave, but Tritium Gambit from author Erik Hyrkas will make you wish it happened way more often. Taking the old police veteran/rookie schtick in a whole new direction, it reminds me of that movie Men in Black with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Not since then has fighting aliens been so comical or appealing. Do yourself a favor and get this one!
Name: Tritium Gambit
Rating: 4.5 stars over 12 reviews
Description: Intergalactic Secret Service Agent Maximus Anderson is a trouble magnet. Oh, he's fine, but every single one of his former partners is either dead, disabled, or permanently stinks of Krylian boar spray.
Fresh-out-of-the-Academy Agent Miranda Smith thinks she's hot stuff, but she's already lost her first partner and is headed toward trouble magnet territory herself.
Now, in hopes the two nuisances will kill each other off, the ISS has paired Max and Miranda up to investigate possible alien activity in a galactic backwater called Minnesota. Something seems to be lunching on the locals, and that something may have hot-wired a military spaceship with enough firepower to level a city.
The closer Max and Miranda get to solving the mystery, the harder it becomes to resist their pesky romantic attraction—and stay off the menu themselves. Max will tell you, it's tough to crack a case with a giant alien chewing on your arm.
Reviews: "This is one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time. The characters are well developed and you find yourself rooting for them through their many adventures. There were parts that made me chuckle out loud and really bad puns - used on purpose - that made me groan - all the while keeping me thoroughly entertained. I really liked the fact that the author switched back and forth between the two main characters. Done poorly it may have made the story choppy, but it was actually done well so it helped keep the narrative flowing smoothly. If you're looking for a book with hard scifi tech appeal this isn't it, but if you're looking for a darn good, entertaining story you wouldn't be embarrassed to share with your teenager give this a try."
