World Tour by Mike Sherer is a science fiction novel where a tour operator who is a former football player takes a woman and her infant child on a world tour, visiting several famous sites around the world. Uzmahndey, the former NFL player whose career was cut short due to a knee injury, now runs a tour agency based in Hawaii. A woman named Angela first books a tour to the site of the most active volcano in the world, which is in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, but after that trip and Uzmahndey swallowing what seems to be Cheerios but is not that, their business relationship continues beyond this first tour. This strange group made up of a human, a robot, and a half-alien human, along with an AI disguised as a stuffed dinosaur, goes around the world placing xenobots at strategic portals where other beings called extremophiles used to come to the earth. 
 
World Tour is a well-crafted adventure novel where science meets alien invasions and Greek mythology. There are beings who are cohorts of Gaia, and they claim to have been protecting the earth for ages. Meanwhile, Angela and her father claim they have come to liberate mankind and save the earth. Uzmahndey sees a different reality from what he considered possible: pregnancy maturing within hours and growth that would have taken years, taking place under weeks. What was previously considered impossible is now possible with this new alien technology. This story is one of love, family bonds, and a quest that will either save the world or enslave it and make way for aliens to take over the world. 
 
My favorite character in the novel is Angela. Her motherly nature and care for the children she gives birth to are some of the things that make her my favorite. Though we see different states of her throughout the book, it is important to note that her character did not forget one of the fundamental reasons for which she was created: to take care of the children.
 
I really enjoyed the book; the story was beautifully written, and the characters played their roles well, though the ending was not the sweet ending I was looking forward to, which was the only thing I didn't like about the book. Apart from the bittersweet ending, the entire novel was captivating, emotional, and a real page-turner. The book was appropriately divided into chapters that were appropriately named after the sites that they visited on their world tour. I commend the editor for doing such an exceptional job of ensuring the book was free of grammatical and typographical errors. 
 
I rate the book 4 out of 5 stars. It was a compelling novel, but it fell short of a perfect score because of the ending. Aside from that, it's a fascinating tale. I recommend this book to lovers of science fiction.

Wha interesting things for Uznahndey to discover. He probably thought that when his NFL career was over that he was finished with anything fun. Oh, how wrong he seems to have been. This sounds like a very entertaining read. Thanks!
