This is an awesome SiFi thriller that keeps you riveted to the page.
SiFi Lover
A face-paced thriller full of suspense with a riveting storyline, Spectra is one of those books that will keep you reading late into the night.
H Rider
Note that Hogan's book is hard sci-fi while Heinlein's is more thriller.

This is an awesome SiFi thriller that keeps you riveted to the page. Ms Elder has made the Characters compelling and believable and you really become involve with them. The Entities inspire you and you want revenge on those who abuse them. You don't want it to end. I am looking forward to more books in this series.

Length: 2:41 Mins
When intelligent life in the form of pure energy is discovered light years away from Earth by an exploratory mine crew, it is clear that something special has been found. These peaceful beings are pure, distinct from everything else we have ever encountered. Their very existence may in fact provide greater insight into the nature of the human soul. Moreover, these newfound life-forms can give those with whom they come into contact an increased mental capacity. Now, cognition beyond our wildest dreams is made possible through our interaction with this species, and a rogue group of scientists is hellbent on tapping into that dangerous potential to the fullest extent. And it comes at an alarming cost...
The battle lines have been drawn, and only two people can circumvent the genocide of an entire species, but they are willing to risk anything in order to end the violence. The quest for life takes a frightening turn as the line between genius and insanity blurs a little more. What must be lost in order for us to see? Our ability to perceive and to protect the sanctity of life is tested in Spectra, the latest novel from Joanne Elder. Elder, a native of Ontario, worked for several years as a professional engineer in the aeronautical industry. Thereafter, she worked in the field of nuclear research. She has published many technical papers in her time, but now she has a new passion: setting in motion the advent of the new generation of science fiction thrillers. Spectra is the result of Elder's love for both science and thrilling fictional works. The novel is fast-paced and captivating, an excellent book for any fan of classic or contemporary science fiction. If you enjoy thrillers with a strong foundation in science fiction, Spectra comes highly recommended.

Spectra is an action-packed science fiction thriller that tests the bounds of human morality and endurance. Ms. Elder created characters you can't help but connect with. The story starts with an exploratory mining mission that leads to an incredible discovery. Intelligent life on another planet. Unfortunately, two of the crew decide to exploit these creatures.

Only two people stand against them and face terrible odds as they attempt to untangle themselves from a web of lies that not only threatens their own lives but also threatens the future of humanity itself.

I'm sorry I'm being obscure, but you really need to read it for yourselves. First time author Joanne Elder brings the reader on an incredible adventure with characters you love and love to hate.
