“Earth Harmony," written by Geoffrey Currens, is a novel that explores human existence in the past, present, and future. It elaborates on how humans lived in harmony with nature in the past, contrasting it with the present, where technological advancements have led to the depletion of natural resources. In the future, humans will defend Earth against aliens seeking to exploit their tampering with the environment. Byron, also known as Cowboy, and Jim are sent from the year 2099 to thwart the aliens' plans. They are aided by advanced technology, including the mother spaceship. The aliens' attempt to alter the past leads to a confrontation in the year 1889, where humans with simpler tools and modest lifestyles must combat the alien threat. Byron and Jim must ensure that the alien interference does not disrupt the course of human history.

This book offers a captivating exploration of humanity's relationship with nature across time, weaving together elements of science fiction, adventure, and philosophical reflection. One aspect I appreciate is how the novel juxtaposes the simplicity of the past with the complexities of the future, highlighting the consequences of technological advancement on the environment and society. The character development, particularly that of Byron, is compelling as he grapples with his role in preserving the future while navigating personal relationships in the past. Additionally, the inclusion of diverse characters like Dream Walker adds depth to the narrative, offering insights into different perspectives on the consequences of human actions.

What I cherished most in this novel is the overall plot itself, as it prompts readers to consider the ethical implications of our impact on the planet and the importance of finding balance between progress and preservation. Personally, I don't have anything to dislike about this book; while the presence of overdosing and many foul words in the book might be disturbing to some readers, some won't be moved by that, as the overall quality of the story, from the interesting plot twists to the engaging writing style, makes it a worthwhile read. All these considered, I'll rate the book 5 out of 5 stars. The book has been exceptionally well edited, and I'll recommend it to lovers of science fiction who are 18 years of age and older.
