The Jakkattu Vector: A Sci-Fi Cyberpunk Adventure Kindle Edition
They came as saviors to a deteriorating Earth.
“The Jakkattu Vector is the first book in a saga that ultimately becomes a metaphor of humanity itself as it struggles to find its role in a world where humans are defective, aliens are taken into slavery, and priests engage in cruel genetic experiments. With Jakkattu, Ms. Tyler has created a new genre where she takes old traditions and myths and projects them onto a future, that, despite its high technology, it’s still polluted by slavery, prejudice, and exploitation. Her strong world building is made even more extraordinary by the exquisite detail and attention in creating new people and cultures.” ~ Midwest Book Review
Julip Torne questions whether there is more to life beyond the barren dirt, acidic seas, and toxstorms her people work and die in. Living in poverty on the withering Greenland Human Reservation, she wonders if the alien Mezna goddesses are truly as holy as the temple preaches.
Meanwhile, Jakkattu prisoner Sabaal suffers constant torture and heinous medical experiments as Mezna-priest captors seek to unlock the key to her genetic makeup. She escapes captivity but ends up alone on the hostile alien planet of Earth. If she is to survive, she must work with the same Mezna-human hybrids she's loathed her entire life.
When humans and Mezna collide, will Sabaal turn out to be the genetic vector the Mezna have been searching for all along, or will she spark the flame that sets a revolution ablaze?

The comparisons between then and now, and then and the rise of the Nazis is amazing. The underlying themes too, eg climate change, and not speaking up and questioning things, are stark warnings for us today.
This is a REALLY well written book. The characters are very well fleshed out and believable. The main females are strong and do what needs to be done. There are a lot of characters, but it doesn't feel like it. Once you start this book, you are there, you are pulled in and kept there. There is no outside of this world.
Tyler's writing flows effortlessly, and the story is excellent. This is a flawless piece of work and I look forward to enjoying more.
This novel is suitable for both teens and adults. In fact, several of the principle characters are in their upper teens, but this book is so much higher quality science fiction then the ridiculous but popular drivel that is called teen sci-fi nowadays. This future world is complex with multiple cultures. I love how PK Tyler has written the humans on the reservations talking in a different dialect from the hybrids and the Sabaal character. The author deftly introduces us to each person and their situation and slowly gives us a bigger picture of what is happening in this polluted future earth.
This wonderful epic book really deserves to be a bestseller, and I really hope that a lot of teens read it. I am in my thirties and I am very picky about sci-fi books, mainly gravitating to the classic like Asimov, Heinlein, and Phillip K. Dick. "The Jakkattu Vector" has a lot of depth, so it may become a new classic. There are themes of identity, linguistics, prejudice, slavery, global warming, and stagnating culture. I recommend it for all sci-fi fans. Also, the characters are each unique and memorable. Occasionally a little bit of prose does not flow well, but that is not very common in the book.
I’m old enough that I remember how the old Star Trek episodes also address serious social issues such as prejudice, war, the environment, feminism and others. If you are a younger sci-fi fan you may have watched these as re-runs and not realized how ground breaking they were for their time when they were prime time episodes.
This book is like that. Sure, there are the typical sci fi elements such as aliens, genetics and scientific experimentation. If you like a good adventure, you will find that here. There’s also a good deal of thriller aspects to the book. There is a good solid plot to keep you entertained while your mind considers the bigger issues and themes.
There are two matters that may affect your enjoyment of this work. It is part of a larger story, so there is a bit of a cliffhanger. There is also a good deal of violence by way of torture scenes and some non-consensual acts. These things don’t bother some readers, but some have strong preferences about these factors and their satisfaction with a book.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book but was pleasantly surprised by what I read. The author has done a good job of creating a dystopian world full of aliens, different classes of humans, and technology (or lack of).The beginning moved slowly as the author described this world and characters in detail that you can visualize. I'm glad I stuck with it through the slow parts as the book was worth it.
Overall I really enjoyed reading this book and want to read more about these characters and world. Unfortunately, at this point there aren't any more books in the series written yet.
