And they are disguised as Asians. No really. That’s the backstory of Patty Jansen’s excellent Ambassador series.
The story starts in Athens, that’s why it piqued my interest. There’s a sort of Masquerade going on, with alien refugees silently living on Earth, disguised as Asians. (They are of a pan-human origin, hence the similarities with us, and there’s a hint of Earth being an ancient colony.)
It’s been only a few years that the lid has been torn off, everybody knows about them and we are both fascinated and suspicious of them. They have of course star-faring technology, and it all culminates into the explosive event you see on the cover. Yes, that’s the Athens cityscape.
The story follows a young Ambassador to the alien species. Despite the importance of the mission, he is rather expendable. We are thrown into the deep end, the world feels lived-in and very complex, which demands your full attention as you read.
Ambassador: Seeing Red Description
24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world.
Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial.
Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organization that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger.
Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills, and contacts to solve the crime.
But he’s broke, out of a job, and a long way from Earth.
A Matt Damon political thriller meets Total Recall action with Avatar otherworldliness.
