Don't Eat The Earthlings by Eileen Gormley

Eileen Gormleys long-awaited second novel, Don’t Eat the Earthlings (The Cytolene Chronicles), is now on sale. It continues the story of Cytolene and her human friends.


It’s the intergalactic mission from hell – first contact with a species she’d rather eat. Cytolene thought the Earthlings would be pleased to see her. After all, she is bringing news that they’re not alone in the universe, and friendship with the technologically advanced people of Eris.

But nothing goes according to plan on this mudball of a planet. Not only is she forbidden to snack on human energy, but the natives aren’t as friendly as she was expecting. And when a wave of grisly murders sweeps through San Diego, the humans believe that she’s blown her diet.

Then there’s her love life. You’d think with having three boyfriends that one of them would be talking to her, but the humans have suddenly turned… well, human, and the Erisian wants to go home.

But that’s only the start of her problems. Cytolene discovers that some other nasty aliens are interested in Earth, and she’s the only one who can stop them.


Reviews for Don’t Eat the Earthlings


5.0 out of 5 stars A Wow of a Story,February 3, 2012
This review is from: Don’t Eat the Earthlings (The Cytolene Chronicles) (Kindle Edition)

I feel in love with sassy Cytolene on introduction in Eileen Gormley’s debut novel, Don’t Feed the Fairies and read it at one sitting. Not surprised it is listed on Good Reads.
Gormley doesn’t disappoint on Cytolene’s second outing in Don’t Eat the Earthlings. The further adventures of Cytolene is a drop-all-else read, unputable down and told in Gormley’s inimitable, racy writing style.
I can’t wait for no 3…..

5.0 out of 5 stars Cytolene thrills again,February 2, 2012
This review is from: Don’t Eat the Earthlings (The Cytolene Chronicles) (Kindle Edition)

If you liked ‘Don’t Feed the Fairies’, you’re going to love this sexed-up sequel.
There’s more muscle on show, and non-stop action, from close-quarters fisticuffs to spaceships in combat.

Cytolene and her friends, both Earthlings and Erisians, travel to Mudball (known as Earth to you and me) to open formal relations and to do business. But surprise, surprise, there are a few problems along the way. The ice-cool President of the United States to start with. And then there’s the not-so-nice aliens.

We get to know another side of Cytolene as she strives, but doesn’t always succeed, to do the right thing. And be warned, Eileen isn’t afraid to let her heroes get hurt. Best of all, there’s a third book on the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars wow, this was a rollercoaster ride,December 16, 2011
This review is from: Don’t Eat the Earthlings (The Cytolene Chronicles) (Kindle Edition)

I’m really pleased I took a chance on this. It was a fun rollercoaster of a ride, which I ended up reading straight through, even though it’s a full length novel.

I got a kick out of Cytolene and her friends, but the real stars of this book are those space-going snakes and their cooking lessons. I’ll never look at snakes the same way again.

I hope there’s a third book in this series coming out soon.
