  • Good read, bad ending.

    This story is based on an interesting and clever plot line. It gets off to a strong start and maintains momentum up till the very end, where the writer pulls a very weird and perhaps amateurish device out. I’m not a fan of the ending. The action is well written but the character development is just not there. The dialog is generally ok to good but has odd moments where it just doesn’t work...the line doesn’t fit the character or the situation, or lacks imagination. Overall did I enjoy it? Yep. Would I recommend it? Yes, with the qualifier that the reader not be looking for anything other than a SYFY-ish action adventure story. Enjoy!

    This tale provides a lot of “what if’s”, to think about. While many are fantastical, there are still others.......... Nice characters developed, interesting plot situations, plenty of action to keep your interest. Can’t suppress the ugliness of humanity either. If you like action, adventure, improbable science fiction theories, you’ll like this read.

    I was expecting this book to be about encounters with Aliens, but Idid not expect to read about battles with giant prehistoric birds and Saber Tooth Tigers. This plot left me deflated because it was rather lame. Plus the big bad guy was not identified, nor apprehended. Perhaps he lives for another day when everyone can fight giant worms, insects, etc., or the Blob, all of which was done in the fifties grade B movies.

    Like other Sci Fi stories I have read, this story is one that I had difficulty putting down. The writer's skill at leaving each scene dangling in front of you a possibility that just had to be checked out, shows his skill at writing. I enjoyed this first of a series and will read his next for sure. The story arc lead me through informing then building. Several protagonists were involved but the story followed the two main soldier characters. The story arc ended with the multiple antagonists' demise, and a positive outcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

    This is my first book from this series. I really enjoyed the read. It moved at a good pace with a lot of action along the way. It was a believable story line, (if you believe there’s life out there...) so I can’t wait to get my hands on the other books! ~Anita T.

    The story was quite unique and a great read. I couldn't put the book down once I got to the ambush at the site of the original recovered ship location.

    I loved this free book. Immediately purchased the next. It was different, suspenseful. Loved the characters. I just thought it was a really good sci fi story. No cursing or sex to fall back on. Great job though It does need editing.
