Some 22,000 people parked in space struggle to save what's left of dying earth. Kelt Nelby attempts to learn the secrets of an ancient artifact which may hold the clues to restore Earth's plant life. Separated by a lethal virus, his soul mate, Akhi Richmond, battles to keep humanity from perishing in the cities floating far above the Earth's surface. While humans on earth exterminate each other, only a very few will find the means for humanity's survival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a Ride! April 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In reviewing the first book of the trilogy, I said that the "magic" of the technology was so powerful that it did not allow much of a challenge to the main characters. In the second book, this is corrected by presenting huge and overpowering problems to the characters and to the world itself. Without spoiling the plot, suffice it to say that civilization itself is in jeopardy through most of this book. It is definitely an exciting story.

A key part of any sci-fi story is the requirement that the reader "suspend disbelief" long enough to get involved in the plot. Both of these books require that you believe that the fate of the world could truly be totally in the hands of just a few people who have amazing capabilities and psychic powers. For those willing to make that leap of faith, the author provides a rewarding and high-velocity ride through disasters and the struggle to overcome them.

I am looking forward to reading the third book in the series.

The creation of new technology and exciting characters working together to save the world! The disaster that is destroying life on earth is very creative an interesting scientific idea. The story explores the interaction of humanity and it's history. I can not wait to get started on the next book in the series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this book also June 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanted to take the time to review this book because I believe this writer has a lot of potential. In the sequel "Dimensional Shift: Waters of Babylon", Michelle Stone does a great job of getting you caught up in the characters lives to the point where you don't want the story to end. I liked the first book "Dimensional Shift: First Step" as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars loved the story line December 6, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok, so I have mixed feelings on this one. Loved the storyline enough to read them all. Writing was a little...cheezy. The dialogue wasn't the best, but I still enjoyed the books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waters of Babylon May 3, 2012
By Young
Format:Paperback
I just finished reading Waters of Babylon, the second book in Michelle Stone's Dimensional Shift trilogy. I found the book to be every bit as interesting and enjoyable as the first book, First Step was. It also left me with the same feelings that I had after finishing First Step---I was frustrated because I didn't have the next book in hand to begin reading immediately. So, I will have to live with my frustrations until the next book arrives.

Without question Michelle Stone is a master at weaving many stories (sub-plots) into one, resolving some of them and leaving you with the rest to wonder about until you read the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dying planet July 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well thought out story, with some very likable people, who have been put in the middle of a disaster on earth. People in orbit working on saving our planet. Mind beyond comprehension, people older than human memories, all working for humanity!

About Michelle Stone:

I've worked as an electrical engineer in Silicon Valley for 20 years as a programmer and project manager. I spent three years as a marketing manager for a pharmaceutical company producing medical instrumentation. I have an insatiable sense of curiosity and always had an adventurous spirit regarding the exploration of space. As an avid amateur astronomer, I started a business designing and building large portable telescopes. I currently manage a non-profit private astronomical observatory. My engineering background and eager interest in space exploration­ naturally have led me to write. I live near Yosemite National Park and participate actively in the Mariposa Symphony Orchestra.

I've enjoyed science fiction since I was a child. While I certainly enjoy the work of well-known and self-published authors, I've come to miss the adventure in the development of science fiction technologies. I enjoy a story best when there's something novel or new... something that bends my mind. I like to learn something of science, history, human nature, or see radically compelling concepts from everything I read. I'm a big fan of space opera, don't get me wrong. However, I crave more. That was part of the inspiration that pushed me to start the Dimensional Shift series.

I'd been mulling the technologies over in my mind for years before I ever turned to the keyboard. I am a fan of music, history, and science. I enjoy taking events from history and real science with a slight twist to craft a credible story. One of my goals was to produce new technologies in my novels. You will find no tired science fiction instruments like wormholes, ray guns, warp speed, and the like to develop my storyline. I use common terms from the sciences. I also attempt to clarify in two or three levels of explanation for those unacquainted with the terminology. I understand that not everyone will be familiar with biology or how a telescope works. Additionally, I've also written these volumes knowing that some of the technology development is not that important to many readers. I've therefore made a concerted attempt to write these works so that even those who glaze over those sections still have a fulfilling story to read. Finally, I've made a strenuous attempt to keep the books rooted in the sciences. I'd really like a teenager to pick up one of my novels and learn something from it. As a result, the violence and intimacy in my stories lack the visceral nature we've come to expect in our entertainment. Yes, there are some military expletives, but they've been toned down considerably and are certainly nothing worse than what you'd see on television.

The two first novels of the Dimensional Shift series contain a fully self-contained saga. You won't be left hanging on for the next book. This is why I delayed the release of First Step until Waters of Babylon was nearly ready for publication. I've left clues and fragments of ideas will come to fruition in the third book, Millenarians planned for release in mid February 2012.

I enjoy feedback from my readers. I enjoy getting good ideas and science fiction concepts from friends and others. Send them to me! My email address is available at the end of each of my books.
