Format: Paperback
A tale of three 100 page segments. ...That didn't work out that well, but oh well. The first hundred pages: Not bad. Second hundred: Better, more stuff happens. Cool. Third hundred: Dramatic leap in quality, stlye, and interest-keeping-ability. The last 100 pages really show what will probably be the worst stuff he'll write ever (which is to insinuate he'll end up being really really good). His story for the first 100-200 pages seems beyond his ability to tell it almost, but once the change around 200, you'll forget about that as it comes close to being equal. And he'll only get better...being sixteen allows lots of improvement.

Format: Paperback
Of all the science fiction books i've read, nothing compares to The Alerion Destiny: Part One. First, let me just say that the whole storyline is pure genius, it kept me guessing right from the beginning! When it comes to keeping the readers attention, this book succeeds where so many have failed. Too bad I can only give this book 5 stars, because it deserves well over 100! If you're a science fiction fan in the least bit, then The Alerion Destiny: Part One is the book for you!
Mr. Doerr, you are THE future of science fiction! I can't wait for Part Two to come out!

Wow! This is the best book to come out in ages! My son needed to write a book report for English class and chose The Alerion Destiny by Nicholas Doerr. He couldn't put it down! Thank you Nicholas!! We loved the characters, especially X and Kyle. Yes, I ended up reading it too and we are both smitten with your talent and great imagination. Keep up the work and work late into the night to get part 2 on the shelves and online! My son and I anxiously await Part 2!

I give this as many stars as I can! This is a masterful work of science fiction that should be shared with everyone you know. I greatly admire Mr. Doerr for his talent and charisma. It takes a lot to be published at 16 years old. The plot is wonderful, the characters are dynamic, there is nothing I don't like about this book. I look forward to Part Two. If this is any indication of his talent, Part Two will be even more wonderful!
