Aaron Okonkwo was raised to honor his people’s heritage. Growing up as an Igbo in a Nigerian tribe located on the continent of Africa, which is known for its savagery, disease stricken and barren lands. As a child, Aaron dreamed of commanding a Star-fleet sent out to preserve life on other planets. Well, part of his dream came true. Aaron works for the Confederate Star-fleet as a bio-botanist and is part of a team sent out to scope the planet Viridia under the watchful eye of Abe Pritchett, the Captain.

Aaron, along with 3 other men, paired with 3 women, perform different tasks on this mysterious, Eden-like planet. The only thing standing in their way is the beautiful and voluptuous female alien creatures who are succeeding in seducing the human men. While working, Aaron was mesmerized by all the incredible life forms and enjoyed cataloging the new and familiar, but as he gazed upon the tantalizing naked body of an alien female, Night Song, Aaron felt the alluring pull of her pheromones beckoning him to become her mate.

After several days with Night Song and trying to unveil the mysteries of an alien race, Aaron notices there is something amiss about this so called paradise, and it’s strange exotic inhabitants. When the other men of his team are rejected by their females, Aaron’s true purpose is exposed. Upon landing on Viridia, all the men were bitten by a bug that was intended to alter their DNA so the female Viridians could procreate outside their species enabling them to save their dying race before time runs out. However, the Viridian females did not expect the stubbornness of Aaron's determination to learn the truth behind the female Viridians’ deceit and keep his past from reoccurring.

The GOD like "Creators" brought life to all creatures and vegetation on the planet, Viridia. Now it’s time for the Viridians to fight for what they believe in, freedom and the survival of their species. Will the presence of the Confederate forces cause all Viridians to become slaves and used as experiments by the Confederate? Will Aaron realize his true power over the protection of all life or will he disregard his destiny and love for all things alien? All it takes is a senseless act of beauty.

I am afraid my words cannot do this book, A Senseless Act Of Beauty, the justice it truly deserves. This is a sensational, “Out Of This World” story, full of emotion, substantial meanings and the mind-blowing effects of a love between a human and alien, not to mention the adoration of an alien planet. A love so great that it causes one to believe they can achieve miraculous things hidden deep within their soul. John B. Rosenman has displayed genuine talent for his world building technique, flawless storyline and keen emotional expression. I look forward to reviewing much more of John B. Rosenman’s work in the future. This book is recommended to any reader, who is interested in Adult Science Fiction.
