    Men in Black from a different angle. Authors Todd and Tim Wynn first published Trespassers in January 2014 and it concerns rival government agencies tracking down a group of alien visitors to Earth. The characterization is very good and this is told with humor and warmth. Interestingly the aliens are described as humans and much of the story is told from their perspective. Fans of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy may also enjoy this, but will miss the British humor. The brothers Men in Black from a different angle.

    Disclosure: I received this book from the author through an Amazon gift card in exchange for an honest review. The first chapter or so took me aback. Can one say Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy? To be honest, I can't stand that book. I almost shut my eReader and prepared myself to tell the authors I wouldn't be able to do this. Still, while there was a similitude in the writing, I could appreciate that the authors didn't overdo it and kept it in the realm of possibilities.

Still, while there was a similitude in the writing, I could appreciate that the authors didn't overdo it and kept it in the realm of possibilities. Unlike the book mentioned, this story made sense (to me). So I kept on reading and soon, I was a quarter in and digging it. The more I read, the more I wanted to know what would happen to the trespassers. In the end the humorous part were well done. They blended well into the story without detracting me from it. So you have aliens who are trespassers on Earth pursued by an earthling government agency who is aware of alien existence since they commonly travel to our planet. Then you have that guy working for another governmental agency bound to prove that aliens do exist and he always seems to be at the right place at the wrong time. I don't want to give out spoilers but I will add that everything is not always as expected. There are some great twists and turns. Overall, I liked all the characters but my favorite had to be Jin. It could be because he was the only alien who had something that could give him away as one (different pupil), but also because of the way he always prepared for the worst scenario possible, which brought a smile to my face every time. If you're looking for something to read that will make you smile, laugh, and even shed a tear or two, you'll enjoy this book. Fans of Douglas Adams should see a slight resemblance in the style but that's where it stops. So even if you're not a fan, you should still enjoy it just as much. I know I did.

    I found Trespassers a very enjoyable book. Easy read, likable characters and such a nice easy flow to the story that kept me engaged. I liked the idea of aliens that are human just not earthlings. Makes you wonder if there is another planet like ours out there or maybe some earthlings traveled a long way and colonized on another planet. I would like to think a little of both. Trespassers is about four aliens landing in Juniper, IN to retrieve someone who has been down there for eight months. They I found Trespassers a very enjoyable book.

Trespassers is about four aliens landing in Juniper, IN to retrieve someone who has been down there for eight months. They can track her by heartbeats. Then there is The Limestone Deposit Survey Group who are trying to track down the aliens and capture them. Yet there is Agent Bruner who is trying to prove there are aliens and is more of a hindrance than a help. I liked the cubes that could force people to tell the truth, could knock people out and allow people to see through walls. I also liked the relationship between Jeremy and Sara. According to this book, aliens take ‘vacations’ on different planets and Earth is a favorite. Helps with the theory that “aliens walk among us and we don’t even know it.” This is a great sci-fi book. It’s a unique story that would keep everyone entertained. I could read more about the different characters. I received this book from author Tim Wynn for my honest review and I’m glad I did. Well done!

    I really enjoyed reading this book, so much so I was disappointed to finish it, but at the same time desperate to know the end. Hopefully there could be a sequel? Maybe? How to write a good review without giving anything away? I will give it my best shot! There is so much further these characters could go & in many different ways.

There is so much further these characters could go & in many different ways. Trespassers is very well written & keeps a good pace throughout. The characters are well thought out & written, all really come alive on the page & you find yourself caring about what happens to them. There is something for everyone in this story, intrigue, deception, romance, suspence, men with guns, spaceships, high tech & much more. Those not really into aliens still might like this book, these aliens are nothing like the usual types, not a green or even a grey man to be seen, no tentacles or insect like creatures. In fact if you met them you probably wouldn't even know they are aliens. Don't try & second guess the storyline, the authors keep you guessing & as soon as you think you have worked out where it is going something new comes up & changes the direction. Trespassers plays on many different emotions, humour, frustration, triumph, defeat, with a touch of sadness for good measure. This is a book that I will definitely read again & more than likely again.... I would happily recommend Trespassers to all of my friends & anyone one else who likes a good book that draws you in from the beginning & keeps a tight hold right to the end. There is something for everyone & I think most age groups would enjoy it, I'm on the wrong side of 40 & if you haven't guessed, I loved it! I will definitely look out for future books by these authors.

    I received this book for free via Goodreads First Reads. The book is a hard one to review as although I had to read on and finish it the pace was a little off. As the authors are also script writers I will review it as if it was a sci-fi movie. It started off fast with a great action scene (the before the credits scene). The main characters were introduced slowly and given some background. The plot thickened a bit (the exposition scenes). Technology was introduced and used (the science geek scenes).

Possible relationships were started or rekindled (the romantic scenes). All the characters ended up together for the ending (the ending scene). The ending left a lot of room for a sequel (the sequel build-up scene). A lot more went on but I don't give spoilers. It was a good read, funny in places and sentimental in others. I like the concept of the aliens and who they are. I also like how low key the story is as not all sci-fi needs to be big budget with a lot of explosions. I would definitely recommend this book to any reader and I will also seek out any sequels or other works by the same authors. I'll be honest and say a 4 star review was in my mind going into the last 30 pages or so. I changed my mind and gave it 5 stars based partly on a partial twist and also how it sets up a possible sequel.

After the first impressive scene, the plot split in many subplot, with the attention that moves on the different groups, everyone running for the own target. The characters are well described and, in some case, the author tells their stories, without so many details, but focusing on some episode bound with the current facts. It’s impossible prevent to get caught in the story and read it till the last chapter in one breath. Furthermore, the end is enhanced by an unexpected twist. (view spoiler)[Earthlings and alien, would be considered "the good guys", and the bounty hunters chasing Sara are "the bad guys". If I have to find a downside, there is not a real clash between these two parties. We know the existence of these bounty hunters, but we don’t meet them. (hide spoiler)] I enjoyed it and highly recommend it as a pleasant and exciting reading.

    Disclaimer - I received a copy of this book from the authors in exchange for an honest review. Trespassers was not what I was expecting. I mean that in a good way. From the blurb and cover, I thought I might be getting a Hitchhiker's Guide knock-off. I even braced myself for the disappointment early in my reading. Well, I should not have worried.

Well, I should not have worried. This was a very original story. Although there is a humorous undercurrent, it did not dominate the story. Trespassers was a light-hearted look at alien visitors and our governments interactions with them. I had a lot of fun navigating the plot-lines of this book. There did seem to be too many characters to follow through the early chapters. However, as the plot progressed and things began to connect, every character felt somehow necessary. I don't want to give anything away, so I hope lots of people just read it! I believe this was the debut novel for Todd and Tim Wynn. It had the feel of inexperience without being clunky and over-written like many debuts. Instead, it was fresh and new and seems to point at bigger things for these guys in the future. I recommend this to fans of fun sci-fi!

    My actual rating for this would be 4.5 stars. I entered to win this book on Goodreads. I didn't win, but soon afterwards I was contacted by one of the authors. After some correspondence between the two of us spread over a couple month time period, I ended up with a signed copy of the book, a Trespassers bookmark, and a one paragraph letter signed by both authors that asked me to leave a review on either Gooreads or Amazon.

I'm now fulfilling my end of the bargain. I am writing the review on Goodreads, but I'm gonna post it onto both sites. Any one that knows me or that has read any of my reviews knows that I'm a science fiction fanatic. Sci-Fi is by far my favorite genre of books, movies and TV series. I enjoy all different aspects of the wide ranging genre. I like everything from the family friendly films of the Star Wars franchise to to the more adult oriented action of the Terminator series to the more horror filled Aliens movies. I enjoy the more philosophical works such as 1984 to the mindless fun that is shown on SyFy to the more mainstream works like Bruce Willis' movie The Fifth Element. I would classify this novel in the latter category. It doesn't have the all out action and explosions of a Michael Bay that cover up the lack of a real story. Neither does it have a highly esoteric, artsy feel of Scarlett Johansson's Under the Skin. What this story does have is a nicely paced, well plotted story full of interesting and likable characters. All too often, writers try to either rush things along and the reader feels that they are missing something or they get so carried away with details that it bogs the story down and the reader feels the effects of too much information. The story here gives you that Goldilocks just right feeling. You get the perfect amount of info at the proper time and then you switch to the next set of of characters for the next portion of the story. This novel has 3 main groups of characters, You have Stewart and his group of government agents that try to keep the public from finding out about aliens, Karl Bruner, a government agent from another organization that is trying to prove that aliens exist, and then the aliens themselves. Out of all of the major characters, there wasn't a single one that I didn't like. That was remarkable to me because over half of the books that I've read in the last 10 years or so has as least one character that I detest. The character that stood out the most to me was Lyntic. I'm not sure who the authors had in mind when they wrote the character, but the actress Olivia Wilde was who I saw in my head when they described her. Every book that I've reviewed lately I have done a bit of fan casting if that book was something that I could see being made into a movie or TV series. I could definitely see this being a movie and I believe Olivia Wilde would be perfect for Lyntic. She's already proven her knack for choosing Sci-Fi roles so this should be right up her alley. I could see this novel spawning some spin-offs down the road. Stewart and his agents could easily have have more stories to tell because this story would just be an average day for them and they would have plenty more opportunities to meet other aliens. Also the aliens themselves could be the focus of a different story. Considering that they travel all over the universe, we could get to see some of their exploits that take place away from Earth. I enjoyed this book enough that whether the Wynn brothers take my advice and write more about these characters or give us something completely new, I'll be checking it out no matter what they write.

    Hop aboard for an alien adventure in this scifi tale of mystery, intrigue, romance and intergalactic travel. I love their description of us humans, but you will need to check out the book for yourself to learn it. Denokin was an abductor of earthlings. It had become ho hum for him.

I love their description of us humans, but you will need to check out the book for yourself to learn it. Denokin was an abductor of earthlings. It had become ho hum for him. Until… Stewart and Mindy worked at the division that regulated alien traffic on earth and were responsible for their presence being kept a secret. For all we know, one could be sitting right beside us, right now. Look to your left, look to your right. Could they be an alien? It was Bruner’s job to prove of the aliens existence. The poor guy is being duped and used by his own government. When confiscating Denokin’s ship, Stewart failed to secure all the aliens on the ship, so Earth has some unexpected visitors…Trespassers. The aliens lives mirror ours, in some ways. They have families, they go to school, they get married, they take vacations… I couldn’t help but laugh when Mindy realized she was attracted to Stewart, as if seeing him for the very first time…and he’s HOT. I don’t feel this is a spoiler, because, come on, we all know its gonna happen. There are many different types of aliens and Earth is considered a resort stop for them. Seeing Earth through their eyes makes me appreciate our world even more, reminding me of its beauty. I prefer to think of it as a resort destination, like them, and wonder at the marvels before me…water, nature, hills and valleys. Trespassers by Tim & Todd Wynn is a science fiction fantasy unlike others I have read. The writing is serious, but not dark. The characters had me in their grasp, as I decided which I liked and which I didn’t like. Some were just doing their job, but I still didn’t like it. There were no villains, in my mind. Just human beings trying to do the right thing. We are primitive, they are so much more advanced than us. All in all, a fun read with entertaining characters and, maybe, there is even a lesson to be learned through fiction. So, hop aboard and meet the Trespassers. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Trespasses by Todd Wynn. To see more visit fundinmental

It's a comfortable read, one that I could read at any point in the day, and I was happy to get through it. Anyways, the book is fantastic! It's a story about a group of aliens landing on Earth, in what I pictured to be a small farm town, to search for a missing girl who has no memory of who she is, and only knows that her memory has been missing since she woke up on the floor of a dressing room in a mall eight months prior to the story beginning. Each chapter is usually following one of four character groups. There are the aliens (human non-Earthlings), the humans, a government alien-hunter, and Sara, the missing girl. As the aliens are searching for Sara, and the humans are searching for the aliens, Sara and a boy named Jeremy start to become close to each other, and we follow them on their trail to the beginnings of a relationship. As events begin to unravel in regards to Sara's memory loss, we begin to see why each group is trying to find the other, and looking back, little things that the authors put in begin to make sense and you realize that they were giving little hints about the characters throughout the whole book. Anyways, this is such a great book, that I NEED MORE!!! The ending chapters just made me smile and worry at the same time, as well as made me yell questions in my head! "What's going to happen? What does that mean? No! Don't do that! Why would you do that!? Oh, now it all makes sense!" I highly recommend this book for fans of sci-fi and romance books. It's sweet and was just the right length to tell the story, but I'm hoping the authors write more! A sequel would definitely be nice! Check out my blog for more reviews! www.wingsaloft.weebly.com

    There's much to like about Trespassers. There's intrigue, mystery, interesting characters, growth, romance, and a little bit of sci-fi, of the "handwaivium" sort. Todd and Tim Wynn have a story with potential in Trespassers. The plot of Trespassers revolves around three--or four?--groups: the secret government agency tasked with keeping humanity in the dark about the presence of aliens visiting Earth, as well as tracking and regulating those same aliens, led by the tall, confident Stewart; Sara B There's much to like about Trespassers.

Also, the guy who thinks he's the government agency tasked with finding aliens...but spends most of the book one step behind everyone else. If it sounds like it has echoes of Men in Black, then it's because it's an apt comparison. The difference is where Will Smith, fancy gadgets, and strange looking aliens makes Men in Black a visual smorgasbord, Trespassers' aliens are--like the inhabitants of Planet Earth--human. Parts of me easily accepted this conceit, especially since it allows the development of romance between Earthlings and aliens, but it takes out a lot of the color that an alien-themed adventure. Add to this ambiguity about who exactly the antagonists are, and I had a hard time feeling like there was really ever anything at stake. Trespassers was a fun read, but I could have hoped for higher stakes and more other-worldy elements. It's a three-star book for me.

    Given it's a Sunday I decided to take a short break this afternoon, and mistakenly decided to start on this book. Having now failed to do the various tasks I had set myself I find myself with a finished book. A few weeks back I noticed this book for the first time. It's hard to pinpoint why but something about it stood out amongst all the others listed. The cover had a quirky interest to it and something in the blurb made me think it was something I'd enjoy I guess - I think I underestimated it.

It's hard to pinpoint why but something about it stood out amongst all the others listed. The cover had a quirky interest to it and something in the blurb made me think it was something I'd enjoy I guess - I think I underestimated it. I was grinning very quickly. The bureaucratic humour had me thinking of Douglas Adams, and somewhat of Jasper Fforde too - I was intrigued and found myself reluctant to put it down. If you like your sci-fi set in a familiar world with a dry wit then I think this book would appeal. I may not have been roaring with laughter but I had a smile plastered across my face pretty constantly while reading this. To give more than just sci-fi comedy the authors have thrown in a nice blend of styles and subplots - with risqué jokes (I know, that's still comedy but it is a different angle), some coming of age angst, a love triangle, and even tragedy that doesn't crash the mood. None of these things deviate from the plot, they're just bonuses thrown in to keep the story rolling, but they do add to it well. This is a funny book that uses the sci-fi angle very cleverly and adeptly. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I was supplied with a copy of this book by one of the authors.

    (Link to Website review) I was interested in this book from the moment I saw it, though I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Trespassers was such a fun read. I was rooting for the whole cast even though they were all working against each other. I wanted 'The Limestone Deposit Survey Group' to find the trespassers. My favorite character was probably Mindy, she was most relatable to me. I really did want Mindy to succeed, but I wanted the trespassers to accomplish their objective as well.

I liked that the Trespassers weren't evil, they're just human. The human factor made it a lot easier to empathize with them. What can I say about Bruner?Poor guy, he just wanted to find some aliens. It is SO believable that our government would have an agency to prove aliens exist and another to hid the existing aliens from the that agency. I completely loved that idea. I haven't read a book from two authors before, The Wynn brothers sure pulled it off. I was very impressed with this book. The story flowed so well and kept me engaged. Trespassers is a hilarious novel! If you enjoyed Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy or Men In Black, you would love this book. It easily gets 5/5

The Limestone Deposit Survey Group job is to keep the public from knowing about aliens and the ships they use to visit Earth. Things go wrong when four who jumped their ship while Stewart is commondering it for the people he works for. The ones in question are members of the Royal Expeditionary Amanda. Their job is to find one of their own, one who is now living among the humans on Earth. A small problem though. She has no memory of her previous life before Earth. They need to find her before Faulkner and his group does. The alternative is unthinkable. I really loved the plot for this book. It was one I had not come across in my readings. The flow was excellent, the characters well-developed and the storyline wonderful. I read this book in two days and was sadden that it was done. I can’t say enough about this book. I have been telling my friends that they need to read this book.

    You never know exactly what to expect upon receipt of the latest First Reads offering from Goodreads. If unfamiliar with the author or the title I often begin with low expectations, as was the case with "Trespassers" from Todd and Tim Wynn. This book was far from a disappointment - engaging plot, well drawn characters, and excellent prose combined to make this a surprising "must read" for 2015.

This book was far from a disappointment - engaging plot, well drawn characters, and excellent prose combined to make this a surprising "must read" for 2015. Set on some version of a familiar Earth, we are drawn into a tale of intrigue, love and suspense as members of the Limestone Deposit Survey Group face off with aliens on a murky mission, and a federal agent out to expose them all. At times hilarious, and at others emotional, this book is always intelligent and fast paced. My only disappointment was learning that a sequel is not imminent! In any case I definitely want to read more from these brothers, whatever the story. Please check out my other reviews at: http://alexandriaredux.blogspot.com/

    Trespassers by Todd Wynn and Tim Wynn (2014) is a very enjoyable science fiction debut novel by the Wynn brothers. It takes the reader to a future Earth that is visited by aliens, i.e., human aliens from a distant planet in a different solar system. Stewart Faulkner and his team detect the surreptitious arrival of four aliens and now they must try to find them and prevent any harmful effects to Earth’s society or ecosystem. I thought the story was very creative and enticing. At first, I was not Trespassers by Todd Wynn and Tim Wynn (2014) is a very enjoyable science fiction debut novel by the Wynn brothers.

At first, I was not sure I was going to like this book, but I decided to keep reading and very soon I was captivated by the story and the fascinating and appealing characters. It was actually difficult for me to put this book down, I just wanted to continue to experience the story and its characters. I hope the authors will visit these characters again.

    TRESPASSERS is the story of four unauthorized alien visitors who have come to Earth and the organization whose job it is to track them down. Stewart Faulker is the head of the Limestone Deposit Survey Group, which has nothing to do with limestone at all, but instead is a secret government organization dedicated to tracking down trespassing aliens and keeping them from public knowledge.

TRESPASSERS is an eloquent science fiction tale, with some romance and mystery mixed in. It’s not ‘science-heavy’ so readers don’t get gummed up in understanding the technical aspects and it has interesting characters who keep the story moving along. TRESPASSERS is both funny and touching, a book I can see easily translating to the big screen. I think fans of Douglas Adams or Piers Anthony will love TRESPASSERS!

    I received this book as a gift from the authors in exchange for a review. And let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed Trespassers! This book was well written and easy to read.

Todd and Tim Wynn have definitely won me over as a fan. I hope to read more of their work in the future.

    There are a lot of things to like about this book. It's an easy read and I mean that in a good way. The characters are likeable (but not perfect) and seem realistic. I liked the authors' take on the aliens, which is fresh and different. There were a couple of unexpected twists, one of which really added to the story. It was a plot twist that had not occurred to me at all,and added some depth to the story.

    Reads a bit like a mix tape or playlist you get from a friend who lives life a little bit louder than the other guys, but has a little known sentimental side. A wacky book and a quick fun read with some interesting twists and turns. Harkens back to Glory Road, MiB & MIIB . There should be something in that lineage to appeal to most readers ?

    Oh my! I loved this book. It reminded me of both Men-In-Black and Torchwood. This is the story of a secret government team that is dedicated to policing unregistered alien visitations to earth. Earth is a hot vacation stop for the rest of the universe, but when four visitors jump from a moving spacecraft it is Stewart Faulkner's team's job to determine who they are and why they are here.

    Well, it seems that our government has been less than honest with us. There are indeed aliens and earth is a bit of a vacation spot for them and as long as they have authorization, it's fine for them to visit. However, the four aliens who jettisoned out of a captured ship did not have authorization so they become the focus of an investigation. This is a great science fiction story that is very well written with well-developed characters and a storyline that keeps you guessing!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, so much that I finished it in a couple of days, despite my busy schedule. The story had me hooked from the first few pages and the fast pace prevented me from putting it down. It's an entertaining tale with a nice sprinkling of humor, romance and suspense. The characters are well developed and the plot leaves easily leaves room for at least one sequel. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun, quick read!

    I received this book through goodreads first reads! This book was interesting story about aliens on earth. I loved all the characters, and the story. It was interesting to think about what it would be like if aliens really were humans but just born on different planets. I like the story between Jeremy and Sara a lot as well. I sure do hope that they make a sequel for this book, I would read in a heartbeat!

    I won this book as a Giveaway, and found it thoroughly entertaining. Well written, easy to read, and very interesting. Surprising in how the "trespassers" appear, and the relationships between themselves and with the earthlings they encounter. I was pleased when I first received the book to see that the authors had autographed it for me, and included a letter and bookmark! Thank you guys!!
