The Space Traveller’s Lover – The Power and The Passion

I just finished reading this book.

The Space Traveller’s Lover is a ground-breaking work of science fiction. The story opens with the Earth on the brink of collapse. In the not-so-distant future, the world’s resources are running thin, and the planet is becoming uninhabitable. To make matters worse, the Rom Ghenshar, a vengeful alien race, has returned to Earth to deplete the remainder of humanity’s resources and replace human beings with more advanced replicas. Rothwen, a headstrong and ruthless alien soldier, develops an intense obsession with Erin, a bright young human student with a mysterious past. He decides to bring her into his world, changing all the invasion plans to be with her, just for his pleasure. However, once Erin is with the aliens, she discovers their immense destructive powers.

It’s not often I get to use the words stunning and spectacular, and superb all in the same sentence for a novel, but The Space Traveller’s Lover is a novel that deserves all those epithets and more.
It’s a fantastic tale that often reminded me of the old space opera style, the fun-loving adventure kind that doesn’t take itself too seriously and focuses on the fun above all else.

This book is filled with adventure, romance, an engrossing plot, unforgettable characters, gripping story overall. I was immersed in reading this for several weekends. I can bet you’re not going to leave it until you finish your last page.

I can feel the stumbling upshot of this novel after finishing it.

The language is simple and easy to understand. The characters and the plot are consummate and relatable.
If you are looking for something different and extraordinary, then go for it.

This is a fast-paced story, and it will take you through ups and downs in a manner that you won’t blink your eyes fill the End of it.

There won’t be a single moment in the novel that will fail to prove worth reading.

It will set the perfect mood if you admire reading science fiction.

The Power and the Passion

Love is all it takes




The Space Traveller’s Lover – Do aliens exist? And if they do, where are they?

Do aliens exist? If they do, where are they?

The protagonist of this book is Erin Lobart. This is a time when our beloved Earth has been deprived of its limited resources, and people are scourging for the basic amenities of life like food and water.

Erin lives on the remote island of Tinian with her parents. She was adopted when she was young, and now, with her parents and a few rescue teams, she was mobilising food and medicine for survival.

However, there was an important discovery which would really change the dynamics of their survival rate on this planet Earth.

What if you knew that the aliens have camouflaged as humans and are living amongst us?

They are not here for a visit but are set for destruction and revenge.

As Erin and her friend Sam discover this, they somehow want to stop this apocalypse. Meanwhile, Erin falls in love.

What is going to happen to the fate of the Earth and our civilisation?

Can love save them from further destruction, or will it be the end of it?

This is a fantastic sci-fi novel I have read in recent times. The plot is gripping, and the characterisation is well-rounded.

The author rightly articulated her views about the current state of Earth we find ourselves in and gave us a futuristic glimpse of what is bound to happen if we are not in touch with this grim reality and embrace sustainable living.

I loved the Alien element in this book; it is surely a treat for fiction lovers!

The Space Traveller's Lover in a nutshell

The Space Traveller’s Lover in a nutshell


The Space Travellers Lover – Out-of-this-world sci-fi romance

Taking the best of two genres – romance and science fiction – and placing them in an epic story of conflict between two worlds, The Space Traveller’s Lover by Omara Williams will win your heart and mind alike.

The driving force for this suspense-packed story is the author’s pursuit of an answer to the timeless question, ‘Just how powerful can love be?’. It is, as we find out, a query that will have the greatest of importance, not only to the lives of the central characters but of all humanity.

The novel is set in the near future, towards the close of the century, where Earth has been ravaged by the effects of irreversible climate change. Vicious cycles of droughts and floods have decimated resources, leaving civilisation on the brink of collapse.

In the first chapter we are introduced to teenager Erin Lobart, who lives on the island of Tinian with her adoptive parents. Here, she assists with the running of their tuna farm and assists rescue team in delivering aid to those in need.

It’s a somewhat mundane existence for Erin, whose prodigious intelligence and stunning beauty are out of keeping with the rest of the islanders. As a result, she is cruelly bullied and, understandably, prefers to spend time alone.

Truth told, she has always felt that doesn’t exactly belong, and this feeling is only becoming stronger with the recent manifestation of strange dreams, so vivid and otherworldly, deepening the gulf between Erin, her adoptive parents, and her surroundings.

On her 16th birthday, Erin and her best friend Sam Sheppard set on a celebratory trip, with Sam revealing that he is taking them both to Diablo’s cave, a scenic yet dangerous location that has long held a fascination for both of them.

Holding a torch for Erin, Sam plans to announce his true feelings during their trip but things do not go as planned.

Journeying through the cave in a boat, they find themselves within a chamber lit by a strange orange light, its mesmeric spell only broken by the arrival of something stranger still – a metallic craft from beneath the water.

Its pilot approaches the terrified teenagers as they are overcome by some external force that sinks them into unconsciousness.

The stranger’s intentions, however, seem far from malevolent, as this sensual passage reveals:

The man focused his full attention on Erin, crouching around her and inspecting her body from head to toe. He stroked her gently, wiping her wet skin and rearranging her dishevelled hair. He blew softly over her face, her cheeks regaining her rosy pink blush momentarily. As her chest heaved, her mouth briefly opened up to let go of a prolonged, gentle sigh.

Upon waking, Erin finds that she has been taken by the man into his spaceship, with Sam left behind in the cave.

She is amazed to discover that her captor is the same mysterious figure who’s watched her in her dreams, as she runs through alien corridors and out into a multihued ocean unlike anything else she’s seen before.

He introduces himself as Rothwen, an elite space traveller and member of the Rom-Ghenshar – a genetically engineered, immortal alien race that is smarter and stronger than humankind.

It is in his, admittedly charming and hunky, company that Erin makes a shocking discovery. The  Rom-Ghenshar are an ancient enemy of Earth, having tried and failed to conquer the planet some 10,000 years before.

Now they are back, and though Erin doesn’t yet know this, the seemingly gentle Rothwen is also the vanguard of his specie’s invasion force, planning to carry out a mission of revenge that has spanned eons.

The revelations don’t end there. She soon comes to learn that this would-be intergalactic beau, dressed in the most fetching of black suits and with dove-white hair, has been secretly watching her for some time.

Referring to her by the name of  ‘Shaillah’, he explains that – as Erin has long suspected – she is different to everyone else, having a unique ancestry.

Rothwen vows to keep her by his side and unlocks her true powers so they can journey to the Rom-Ghenshar’s home planet. The price, however, is to abandon her former life and acquaintances entirely.

Their complex relationship and the dilemma for Erin at its heart constantly propels the narrative forward and ensures that there is never a dull moment as the plot deepens. In other words, this gripping story will have you tingling in delight.

As will the beautiful black and white illustrations between chapters, which add to the immersiveness of the reading experience and helps the reader bond with the “characters.

The novel is aimed primarily at a YA audience but beyond the breathless angst and heartache are bigger themes that readers of any age or disposition will savour.

The Space Traveller’s Lover – Author interview by SWNS

Sci-fi romance author Omara Williams tells us more about her suspenseful, fast-paced and inspirational novel The Space Traveller’s Lover.

The Space Traveller’s Lover By Omara Williams – SWNS

Q: You have long aspired to become an author. What compels you to write?

A: The challenge and satisfaction of creation compel me to write. My infinite curiosity makes me wonder about everything that happens in nature and, as I write, I discover more questions that need answering. Of course, working on a science-fiction backdrop, I can let my imagination run wild and often surprise myself with what I can imagine and put into words.

I keep reading The Space Traveller’s Lover and often wonder, ‘How did I imagine this event?’ And that gives me immense satisfaction.

Q: What are you most proud about concerning your debut novel?

A: I am very proud of having published it. When I first started, it seemed an impossible task.

After working tirelessly on the storyline and characters, I feel a great sense of achievement when I see my efforts realised in the form of a beautiful book that has not only a story to tell but also messages of love, self-questioning, and self-discovery.

But the proudest moments are when I get comments from my readers describing precisely the feelings I wanted them to feel when reading my book. For example: “ … the scenes were so mesmerising that you could feel it while reading. The description of each and everything has been pinpointed. The story builds up in the first half and takes up pace from its second half, and the climax will give you goosebumps …”

Q: Where do you get your ideas and information for your writing from?

A: As I am always reading and travelling to fascinating places on different astronomy projects, I had a lot of ideas in my head, and the more I thought about them, the more ideas came.

Building up on my scientific background, I knew I wanted to write a science-fiction book where I could explore the greatest questions and mysteries of our time. Then, since I have always been amazed by the power of love, I decided to mix the romantic element in my story.

Eventually, I had to sit in front of the computer and write down all these ideas. It was such a relief to see all my thoughts come to life in the form of written words on a document. After that, I could not stop!

Q: What is that one thing that makes your writing unique and different from others?

A: Set at the end of the 21st century, The Space Traveller’s Lover takes the reader on a journey to the edge of world annihilation, where all hopes of survival seem lost, but at every dead-end, there is an unexpected twist that changes everything.

As much a romance as a science fiction adventure, the narrative is fast-paced, questioning, and ultimately a story of triumph against all the odds, with an intriguing and emotionally-fuelled storyline.

This inspirational love story brings about a sense of hope and expectation as the main characters confront their intense feelings and discover the one and only thing they can’t live without.

Q: Who or what inspired you when creating the main characters in your book?

A: Most of the characters in the book are unique to the story and are inspired by it.

I created my Protagonist, Erin Lobart, to be beautiful, thoughtful, and sensitive but also determined to fight for what she believes in and cares for. She needed all these qualities to confront the stubborn and ruthless alien invaders, especially Rothwen, who inspires an irresistible attraction in her.

For my Antagonist, Kuzhma-Or, the superbly intelligent, manipulative, and vengeful Rom-Ghenshar Supreme Commander, I wanted to create an all-powerful, invincible leader that would stay in Erin’s way to save planet Earth and humanity.

Athguer, the Rom-Ghenshar chief scientist, is based on the many scientists I have read about. Mainly, however, he is a mixture of Albert Einstein and Michael Faraday.

But some characters are based solely on some of my absolute heroes. For example, Zula-Or, the Rom-Ghenshar high councillor, is based on Dame Joan Collins, and Professor Khan, Earth’s chief scientist, is based on Professor Michio Kaku.

Q: Your novel has delighted readers, but which books and authors delight you?

A: I have read many books and have so many favourite authors that it’s difficult for me to make a shortlist. I would definitely include Jules Verne, Alexander Dumas, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke in this list.

My top three books are The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov, The Black Tulip by Alexander Dumas and Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne.

Q: The novel is unusual in featuring illustrations. How did this come about?

A: As I write, I like to visualise everything. So, I drew out the scenes and the characters’ physiques in detail. Then I made a wall chart where I could place carton cards containing a summary of each chapter to set up a storyboard from the initial, middle and final scenes.

As such, I had plenty of drawings that I could utilise to illustrate my book. I worked with an illustrator who helped give the final touches and then selected one for each chapter and one for the front cover.

I hope the illustrations, in addition to the narrative, help the readers immerse themselves into my book’s otherworldly scenes and unique characters.

Q: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

A: In my spare time, when not writing or working on software development, I love reading, listening to music, travelling, learning new languages, sky watching and attending astronomy-related projects and events.

Q: If there is one message that you want readers to take away from your novel, what is it, and why is it important to you?

A; There are many important messages that I want the readers to take away from my novel. They are important to me because they represent my values.

We live on a beautiful, unique planet; let’s preserve its rich biodiversity and delicate environment. Let’s love our planet. We can’t discard the possibility of an alien invasion, and we must be prepared. Hostility is not an option. And finally, when all seems lost, don’t give up. Love is all you need when there seems to be no tomorrow.

Q: Having now made your mark as an author, where will you go from here?

A: I am planning to write the second part of The Space Traveller’s Lover, which will explore and develop many storylines from the first. Expect more space travel, alien invasions, clash of civilisations, and dramatic love stories to make us think and reflect on our place in this vast universe we inhabit.

Thrilling from start to finish—The Space Traveller’s Lover is a must-read.

Review by SWNS, UK – 20th October 2022:

– “Author Omara Williams is leading the way in the rising genre of sci-fi romance.”

By Jess Young

– “Thrilling from start to finish—The Space Traveller’s Lover is a must-read.”


The course of true love never did run smooth, as Shakespeare put it, and in the winning new sci-fi romance novel The Space Traveller’s Lover by Omara Williams, we see the truth of this maxim dialled up to maximum.

For, at the centre of this engrossing story, is the challenging relationship between an exceptional young woman, Erin, and a dashing alien, Rothwen.


Changed, and given the new name of “Shaillah”, she is able to visit the home world of the Rom-Ghenshars, which is majestically alien and vividly described by the author, whose writing is lyrical and sensitive in equal measure.

The catch, however, is that she must forsake her humanity, and move on from those she has cared for in her former life, not least Sam.

The temptation is intense, both for the opportunity to be with the almost irresistible Rothwen and to enjoy a sense of belonging that has previously been lacking.


But suspicious of the Rom-Ghenshars and their plans, she is hesitant. Locked in this heart-wrenching dilemma is more than personal fulfilment; a wrong decision could spell annihilation for all of humankind.

The Space Traveller’s Lover is one of those books that quickly captivates the reader’s attention – not least through the gorgeous black and white illustrations between chapters – and never lets go until the stunning finale, throwing in fast-paced action and a generous supply of twists-and-turns along the way.


What I loved the most about it, and there’s a lot to adore, is that the conflict is between two characters who have won your heart.

Power and Glory

Love is all it takes



The fact that Rothwen & Shaillah share an electric fondness and are trying to determine whether they have a future together – while also battling over the fate of an entire planet – is simply without parallel.


Williams conveys this vulnerability so well, with the rich, delicate language that gilds the narrative, immersing you in their plight.

Like with a pure romance, you are desperate for the couple to embrace and are stung by the same pains that separate them on love’s battlefield.

At the same time, your mind is whirring double-time as the author raises many profound questions concerning the nature of the human condition, the meaning of home and belonging, loyalty vs duty, and our mistreatment of Mother Nature.


I like how the day will be won, or lost, through emotions, not brute strength. Erin is the voice of compromise and reason against an alien force that professes superiority yet fails to act in kind.

Her caring and compassion – the very qualities that Rothwen and his kind insist on stamping out – will be pivotal to how events play out.

And it is a fight on many levels – for her identity, her world, and her impossible love with Rothwen, which will take every ounce of her being to resolve.

There is so much to commend here but, mostly, I like how the story makes us reflect on our own actions and constantly reminds us that it is love, not hate, that holds the key to all problems.

While the novel is marketed as young adult fiction, aficionados of science fiction and romance will revel in it regardless of age.

And the fact that author Omara is as big a fan of science as adventure stories enables her to paint on the biggest canvas, the universe, while imbuing it with warmth and sentiment.

With her sensational, sensitive debut, The Space Traveller’s Lover, Author Omara Williams is leading the way in the rising genre of sci-fi romance.

The story is full of life and the adventures are so amazing that they take you to another world of their own. The plot is intriguing, and that makes the book more interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the book while reading and loved it

The characters are also well developed and the character of Erin is such that you will fall in love with her. The language of the book is easy to understand but there are some scientific terms you need to focus. The narration has been top-notch with an eye-catching cover the book is perfect for sci-fi lovers. The author has done a commendable job in representation, as the scenes were so mesmerizing that you can feel it while reading.

The description of each and everything has been pinpointed. The story builds in the first half and took pace from its second half and the climax will give you goosebumps …

It is the end of the twentieth century, and with climatic imbalance and floods & droughts there are limited amount of resources and land available to survive, and Erin is working with rescue teams to deliver food and medicine to the needy.

Omara Williams’ debut sci-fi novel

The Space Traveller’s Lover – Love like never before

Review by Saloni:

The space travellers lover is a masterpiece of wordsmanship, packed with breathless action, bone-chilling thriller and love like never felt before. The protagonist of the story, Erin Lobart, lives with her adoptive parents on the island of Tinian. The story takes us to the late 21st century, where flood and drought have devastated the once green and pulchritudinous mother Earth, making her inhabitable. Many died and the ones surviving are struggling hard, just to see another beautiful sunrise.

The quest to discover the unknown is a perpetual trait, not limited to only humans. Thousands of years ago, aliens came to it but set foot on the wrong side of the universe to take over Earth. Our ancestors fought them off for peace and harmony to spread once again; little did they know that this peace was not lasting long. They came back a couple thousand later. Revenge is all they seek now.

This is a fast-paced story and it will take you through ups and downs in a manner that you won’t blink your eyes till the end of it.

Erin falls in love, but not with someone she should. She discovers things in her she never knew existed. The fate of humanity is on her, her destiny, on the hand of that someone she knows a lot of. A perfectly scribbled tale of events occurring in the huge vastness of space-time.

🌼A thriller-filled, action-packed novel for all the sci-fi lovers out there. The space traveller’s lover by Omara Williams is also a perfect novel to be your first sci-fi novel. There won’t be a single moment in the entire novel that will fail to prove itself worth reading. It is a must-read novel

Omara Williams’ debut sci-fi novel

The Space Traveller’s Lover – Impossible love

About the plot: Ten thousand years ago, an alien race, the Rom-Ghenshar, was driven from Earth by ancient humans. They have returned to Earth using perfect human replicas to understand and eventually control the human mind. Stronger, invincible, immortal, and with a technical superiority beyond comprehension, the aliens are fuelled by a zest for revenge while plundering Earth’s remaining resources.

The Rom-Ghenshars have remodelled themselves into a genetically superior race and removed any feelings or emotions they consider a weakness. They don’t feel fear, guilt or remorse, and most importantly, they never fall in love.

Rothwen, a headstrong and ruthless alien soldier, develops an intense obsession with Erin, a bright young human student with a mysterious past. He decides to bring Erin into his world, changing all the invasion plans to be with her, just for his pleasure. The pair embark on a passionate affair that sees Rothwen fight against his will, plans, and supreme commander.

Once Erin is with the aliens, she discovers their immense destructive powers. While the aliens promise the humans that they have come peacefully, Erin suspects that not all is as it seems.

Erin’s future and that of planet Earth depend on her next actions. She often wonders where her loyalty lies. Is it with the humans or the aliens?

Will she stay with her best friend from childhood who loves her deeply? Or will she stay with the ruthless alien soldier who shows no mercy?

Will she be able to overturn the aliens’ destructive plans?

Can Erin and Rothwen ever truly have a future together, and does it necessitate destroying humanity’s future to achieve it?

Is the human race even worth saving, for that matter, when they have been such poor custodians of their own planet?

The story’s central theme is the love between humans, between humans and aliens, and the love for our planet. It will make the reader wonder about their decision-making when confronted with the dilemmas presented in my book. Would we save everything that we cherish in this world, or would we give in to otherworldly temptations?

About the main characters:

Erin, the delicate, beautiful yet strong-willed young student.

Rothwen, the handsome, ruthless and impulsive Rom-Ghenshar master navigator.

Kuzhma-Or, the powerful and flamboyant Rom-Ghenshar supreme commander.

Athguer, the intelligent and sophisticated Rom-Ghenshar chief scientist

Zula-Or, the wise, elegant and majestic Rom-Ghenshar councillor.

The Space Traveller’s Lover – “A stirring literary debut that will win your heart.”

The genres of romance and science fiction don’t typically snuggle side by side, but new novel The Space Traveller’s Lover by debut author Omara Williams proves that when handled correctly they can make for the ultimate power couple.

This wonderfully immersive story is set on a future Earth that is feeling the full impact of decades of environmental harm.

As the novel opens, we are introduced to Erin, a beautiful and independent teenager who feels like she doesn’t belong. That’s a fairly typical teenage issue, but her purple eyes and precocious intelligence suggest there may be more to it than just angst.

Working on her adopted parent’s tuna farm when not at school, she feels lost in the mundanity of life. Her close friend Sam provides something of a romantic frisson but it can’t compare to the awe-inspiring recurring dream she’s been having, of a truly alien vista and a dashing man watching her from afar.

Things, however, start to fall into place when she is kidnapped by the literal man of her dreams, Rothwen. 

 An elite member of the Rom-Ghenshars, an advanced alien race, he has travelled across the stars to help lead an invasion of Earth—one that will strip the planet of all its resources and bring long-overdue revenge.

While Rothwen is a man of little emotion, like all his people, he has become smitten with Erin from his home world before before deciding to lure her to him, even though this is strictly outside of the mission plan.

His fascination stems in part from the fact that Erin has a unique ancestral legacy. Addressing her by the new name of ‘Shaillah’, he invites her to embrace her true heritage and powers, and stay with him during the invasion.
