"The Mor" is Sci-fi Thriller at its finest. Prepare to read well into the night! I couldn't put it down. -SJ Pierce, bestselling author of the Captivated Series ★★★★★
One universe. Two different races. One common enemy.
When the benevolent race known as the Illuminous visited earth back in the 1950's, they weren't aware of the aliens who had attached themselves to the hull of their ship. The Mor, also known as 'Seeds', found Earth to be a poor choice for a new home, but a home, nonetheless. When three brilliant college students inadvertently stumbled on a formula that enhanced the Mors' ability to communicate and grow at an incredible rate, the race was on to reverse what had been done before all of life was destroyed.
The Mor is a stand-alone sci-fi Thriller with elements of Romance. Suitable for ages 15 and up.
David flipped off the shroud and stared down at the mess for a moment. "Sam, I need you to do me a favor," he said.
"Um, sure. Okay."
"I need you to go upstairs."
Sam shuffled his feet. "Well, being this is my lab and all, I'd rather stay if it's all the same to you."
David Wyatt turned around and Sam could see the man had removed the glove from his left hand. It had an eerie little glow to it and appeared to be a whitish, fleshy color.
"No, it isn’t the same to me.”

I couldn’t put the book down. The story starts strong, setting the tone of this science fiction action thriller, where two alien races have come to earth; one to cooperate while the other festers and waits. Nothing can stop the sequence set in motion by three unsuspecting young scientists. Tension escalates until it seems all hope is lost, culminating in a nail-biting climactic ending. I was enthralled and kept thinking what a great movie it would make. It’s well-worth reading.

Fighting a desperate battle against a hidden invader? “The Mor” by Steve Soderquist sets the stage for the invasion of the Earth by a strange race which cares nothing for humanity, but only for their own survival. Humanity engaging to destroy the interlopers has established especially adapted and trained cleaners. They together with seekers have been trying to eradicate the invaders while keeping the world’s population from understanding the threat they were all living with.
Three students devise a strange chemical compound and unknowingly stumble on something that will speed the world’s doom. They race to find a cure for the damage they accidentally created. Fast paced, tightly written, “Seeds” is a horror delight for the aficionado of the genre. If you are looking for an excellently written sci-fi horror tale, then “The Mor” is your obvious choice.

A fast paced read that will keep you wondering until the end. Can Joshua and Angel save the planet or will the aliens win. Get yourself a copy and find out!!I'm not sure I will be able to look at kernels of corn the same way again, thanks Steve!
I gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5 because when I really like a book it's never long enough for me.
I look forward to checking out more of Steve's work.
The Mor is a classic science fiction / horror novel. For me it had undertones of John Carpenter, Alfred Hitchcock and Wes Craven all rolled into one fantastic (sometimes frightening) read. Without giving too much away... The Illuminous came to Earth to begin anew; unfortunately, The Mor (evil plant-like aliens] hitched a ride on their spaceship. While the Illuminous revealed themselves to humankind, the Mor hid and fed off humans (you’ll have to read how they do this...YUCK)!
We follow the main characters, Angel and Joshua (Angela is an Illuminous and Joshua is a Cleaner, a human trained and equipped with one prosthetic hand to help destroy the Mor) who are partners and work together to rid the planet of these horrid plant-like creatures.
In other news (don’t you just hate that) a bunch of college students perfect a serum/fertilizer which creates super-plants. Although with good intentions, some of this serum is exposed to a Mor. Not good. Needless to say it becomes Hell on Earth.
Angela, Joshua and the college students must work together to save planet Earth, but is it too late?
This is definitely a page turner and a “must read” for all you horror/sci-fi enthusiasts.
