Book Synopsis:

In Gone Home, the second installment in the Alien Encounters Series, Peggy goes back to her home world, Sylax.

We learn of Peggy’s life before her Earth mission. She has a loving Mother, her CK-1 creator, who loves her like a daughter, even for her PSI abilities. Mother wants Peggy to be a part of the mighty Docan forest of Sylax’s past, but also wants Peggy to move on and accept her greater destiny. Will Peggy accept her destiny as a CK-1 child and move to a life beyond the Docan?

When Peggy arrives on Sylax she is met with disappointment, and disapproval of her failed mission, but was it?

Sylaxian Council Member Sygen confronts Peggy with his concerns, and fears that Mitch Christie’s destructive nature could mean yet another dangerous member on the Council should Earth be invited to join. The Queen and her second in command, QET Jenkins, want Peggy to return to Earth. Will Peggy use her prowess to convince Sygen and the Council to welcome Earth so she can go back?


I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not a fan of science fiction. With that said, Kim Welsman actually writes sci-fi that I enjoy. Gone Home is the sequel to Going Home and gives us an inside glimpse of the life that Peggy lives on her home planet. Welsman does an amazing job of creating a fantastical world that is rich with beauty, but has the icy chill of sinister doings in the air. If you love science fiction, or even if you don't, I recommend this book.
