Baby, Species Intervention #6609 (Species Intervention #6609 #1) by J.K. Accinni
Have you ever wondered why God does not punish the evil and depraved of our planet? Why does He tolerate the destructive bloodthirsty nature of Homo sapiens allowing them to rule over all creatures, abusing and exploiting according to their whims? Why has science been unable to solve the vexing mystery of our ancestor, the Missing Link? How could one planet evolve such complex and divergent examples of biodiversity? Can you imagine God ever saying, "To Hell with this mess that is Earth?" The series "Species Intervention #6609" spans two hundred years, encompassing tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and violence of unspeakable order. It is an unfortunate tale of Armageddon and the remote possibility of redemption. In Baby, Netty is a naive teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a successful citizen during the years of Prohibition in Sussex County, New Jersey. After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist husband, traveling back to the farm worked by her parents, where she rescues an unfamiliar damaged creature she finds in a cave in the woods of her childhood, falling in love with the enigmatic creature she names Baby. Together they find happiness and fulfillment despite the changes to Netty's body wrought by the proximity of the unusual creature. When a handsome Italian stranger comes into Netty's life, complications ensue as she falls in love while trying to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her farm and her body. Netty, Baby and Wil strive to conquer obstacles thrown in their path by life, succeeding wildly until the heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story.My Review:
I received this book to give an honest review. I do wish I could give this book more than 5 stars because it was one of those books that I just happened to fall in love with. The main character Netty, I felt for her on so many levels. With the abuse that she succumbed from her husband to her becoming independent and running her farm along with starting a business though still a bit weary of her husband finding her. She finds a creature who she falls in love with, names him Baby, and in a way he changes her life. She learns that she has to keep him a secret as he is not from this world. While taking care of herself and Baby, Netty finds a man in her woods that is almost dying. She nurses him back to health with Baby's help and in the process falls in love. But will he find out Netty's secret? And if he does, how will he react? You just have to read to find out.
Netty's husband Robert is one very mean man and when he finds out Netty is on her parent's farm he stops at nothing to get rid of her. I can honestly say I cringed on one of the deaths that Robert caused. I actually re-read the part to make sure I read it correctly.
There are deaths, and revenge but not in your normal way. This book is very unique and I highly suggest you pick it up and give it a read. Netty and Baby's story will pull you right in. I can not wait to read more as I can tell this will be a good series. The author has a wonderful imagination that came alive in this book.
