Mr. Baxter has created vivid imagery with his words and had me, as a reader, on the edge of my seat. This story is not far at all from the reality we live in. It is a grand reminder how we should respect the world around us or else Mother Gaia just may pay us a visit.

Book Review: Mother Gaia by R.L. Baxter
By R.L. Baxter
Genre: Dystopian Fiction
4.54 billion years the earth has existed – forming life that has continued to grow and adapt. Of all the species that have evolved, mankind has exceeded the most, from the discovery of fire, to the Internet and advanced machinery. Unfortunately, the hearts of men have changed for the worse, due to greed, corruption and manipulative warfare. As such, the wrath of the earth has been stirred, and its creator Mother Gaia takes it upon herself to end the human race. Bearing the appearance of a beautiful young woman, Mother Gaia will experience the darkest hearts of mankind, with no light in sight. Political – full of scientific and religious contradictions that will leave you questioning your own morality, Mother Gaia is a reminder that nature is a force not to be reckoned with.
Mother Gaia is so good! I love how fierce she is when she returns to end the human race. Despite her beauty, she is raging with anger inside for she has seen her children (nature) suffer from the hands of greedy humans. I was in awe of how her footsteps created lushness in place of destruction.
