Blurb: This is a story of Androxen, the sea, a nice bunch of aliens of the Andromeda galaxy, Samira, and some serious citizens of earth. It begins with Androxen of the seas, who can only breed males and so ever on the lookout for siren-mates in a waterful life together. But the old sage androx and the equally mature sea-salt androx are Androxen of another sort. Appalled by the state of seas and land around, they badger aliens for blueprints for an all right world. And as the old salt plots across galaxies with his infallible plotter, unbanded frequency waves tingle with vibes of alien tracks. The rest is history, or rather, geography, as final outcome is an earth with extended platforms. In its past, this planet had been exploited, explored, and exalted in song, word, and deed, but now it could breathe again. Spacelings, normally visualized vandalizing the environs, reverse roles here, getting humans out of the hole and giving the planet an earthly chance. Good, clean humour. But underlying the light tone, there is an anxiety over the crisis confronting earthlings and an earnest hope that it ends in a happy beginning.
Clovers is a beautifully and cleverly written book that will serve as a really amusing read for everyone. It is fun and entertaining, but at the same time makes the reader aware of the problems that are faced (and to be faced) by the people of Earth.
I liked the illustrations of this book, done by the author herself, as they are cute and unique. I’m positive that this book will be well received by science-fantasy fans, given time. The concept is really different and I loved the unique way of writing. The new and unusual names and the ragged course of the story made Clovers a really interesting and amusing read.
If you want to read a unique science-fantasy this year, then I’d highly recommend Clovers.
