Book Description

Vincent Saturn is a young federal agent who’s bored with his life and yearns for adventure. But when he makes contact with an alien whose ship crashes on Earth, Vincent gets more than he bargained for…
Follow Vincent on his quest as he wakes up on a different world and joins a colorful band of characters seeking to overthrow a regime that controls the entire galaxy. As he struggles to find his way home, Vincent slowly begins to realize that the fate of our world rests on his shoulders and that his contact with the alien might have given him superpowers…
Eternal Horizon incorporates sci-fi, fantasy, and comic book elements to bring you the very first “novel-encyclopedia.” Aside from having a powerful tale that will take you beyond stars, Eternal Horizon has more than 80 illustrations that include character profiles, diagrams of every starship, tank, robot, soldier armament, and scenic chapter openers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than what appears on the surface November 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
David ‘Roman’ Shakhramanov is an Armenian-American who immigrated from the former Soviet Union in 1993 and now lives in Florida where he received degrees in English and Fine Artsov has a gift and while there are those who suggest that he is borrowing heavily from the classic 1977 ‘Star Wars’, the American epic space opera franchise centered on a film series created and written by George Lucas (subsequent screenplay additions were added by Lawrence Kasdan, Leigh Brackett, Jonathan Hales, Henry Gilroy, Steven Melching and JJ Abrams), there is no plagiarism here. Instead, what makes this author who now goes by the name David Roman unique is the incorporation of extensive graphic art of his own creation that carefully describes each character with handsomely drawn photorealistic people offering their height and weight and age and planet of origin, costumes, the machines mentioned, the robotic creatures encountered, the troops involved in the story, the imagined creatures, brilliantly drawn scenes that illustrate the action, the visualization of the fantasy places described in the story including the space scenes and the complex destination places.

Roman’s writing is concise and completely immersed in this fantasy world: he plans six novels in this series. Yes, the use of bizarre names can throw the reader for a loop until the story is underway, but then with the mind wrapped around the very, very visual imagery both from his pen and from his drawing such trivialities become unimportant distractions.

Does his story resemble Star Wars? Yes, but name a space fantasy story that does harken back to George Lucas’ innovative venture. Roman writes well AND he provides the graphic novel element to this his first novel: it seems he has begun a successful journey for lovers of sci-fi fantasy. Grady Harp, November 13

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, evening, read July 6, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Well, yes ... it does seem to borrow a plot from Star Wars - the similarities are such that it cannot be denied. But, nonetheless, I LIKED IT, enjoyed the story, the characters, and geez ... even the plot. Corny I know, but it is what it is. Thanks David. How about a sequel???????

How do you know you are reading a great book? When after the first page you realize that you are basically reading the Star Wars Saga, but don't care. How do you know you are reading a fascinating book? When the book you are reading has an amazing number of misused words and grammar issues and you really don't care. Truthfully, the only reason I didn't give this book five stars was because of the word/grammar problems. Yes it leans heavily on pretty much the plots of all Star Wars films, but the characters are just different enough to ease that issue and the story telling is riveting.
I have lost count of how many books I have read (and written once or twice lol) that have "Earth man/woman" transported to far away world/time/place where they have mysterious powers and must help save the day. However, just because it has been done, doesn't mean it can't be done well again. This Saga of the Warrior Sages and the battles they must endure is excellently done and the grand Epic (In every sense of the word) battle of Good VS Evil will make you stand up and cheer. If you love Sci-Fi. If you love Star Wars. If you love classic Action/Adventure read this book. You will not regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Different Perspective July 4, 2011
Format:Hardcover
In a nutshell, if a book borrows so heavily from Star Wars you think you might need to contact LucasFilm about possible copyright infringement sounds good, then this book is for you.

I know the old saw "There's nothing new under the sun", but come on people, a little effort at originality isn't expecting too much, is it?

I started Eternal Horizon with high hopes.
Our protagonist, Vincent Saturn, is an FBI agent at the scene of what seems to be a UFO crash. His curiosity outstrips his order not to investigate, the military is on the way, and he boards the downed vessel.
Next thing you know, Vincent sees a figure inside, obviously in distress and BAM, out goes Vincent, the last thing he sees is white lights.
He wakes up literally in another world...where the horrible EMPIRE is waging war against REBELS. No one knows what a "human" is or where a planet called Earth is, so he's sort of stuck. He falls in with the REBELS, who also have a Senator who is a PRINCESS...you think the comparisons stop here?
Nope.
I thought when I got to the introduction of Princess GAIA (Leia anyone?), the parallels would end. But no. Vincent is participating in a Rebel incursion, aboard a spaceship, where their leader is being held, and gets into a battle. He witnesses the bad guy hold out his hand and a weapon files out of the hands of the wielder into the bad guy's hand. What's that I smell? Do you smell the Force? I sure do.
So then we have Sage Warriors who mostly have to learn their Force-like skills, except for Vincent who was given his when he tried to aid the person in the downed vessel on Earth. Wait. Where have I see that before? Isn't this like when Obi Wan says if he's stricken down he'll be even more powerful than Vader can possibly imagine? Hey!
