About the Author

Biography Born and raised in the city of Brotherly Love I have been writing for nearly 10 years. I am the author of the 2012 scifi novel Escape 2 Earth which is kinda the opposite of Mr. Roland Emmerich's 2012 The Movie. In early 2009 I completed the second installment in the the Escape 2 Earth trilogy called Return 2 Earth also several short stories including a fantasy story titled Dimensions in Time and a sci fi story titled Planet of Doom. In 2009 I completed my first detective novel called Blackout. Before writing Escape 2 Earth I began putting together a collection of inspirational and motivational quotes titled Observations from the Edge of Society. I am currently working on the final book in the Escape 2 Earth series called Earth 2, Redemption which will be completed in 2010. http://escape2earth.blogspot.com/

`Two tall male forms walked from the ship toward them. This was it. It was obvious from their attire that they were not from this world. It was one of the coldest nights of the winter but the thin blue shimmering material worn by the visitors seemed more than adequate to keep them warm. One of the aliens began to speak. His voice was calm and welcoming. "I bid you peace. You have no idea how long we have waited for this moment to arrive." The two aliens bowed slightly under the moonlight while Will and Matt stood motionless and speechless. "Your friend is injured, allow us to help." One of the aliens had dark blue hair, when he moved away from the light it actually looked black. He motioned toward Art. When they didn't respond he picked Art up in both arms and carefully carried him up the small ramp and inside the ship. The other alien was a little shorter with shoulder length reddish brown hair. The shorter man did not speak but motioned for Matt and Will to follow. Once on the ship the door silently slid closed behind them and once again the ship seemed to vanish. Matt and Will were not the only ones amazed at the dramatic arrival of the aliens, the man who had shadowed them since their arrival at the airport was back. This time he watched, with high-powered night vision binoculars, from a clump of trees on the other side of the clearing. The stalker had shed his disguise. He would be much easier for Matt to recognize now. It was Matt's nemesis, Dave.'

Matt and Will were not just best friends, they were also partners in a venture to photograph and hopefully find answers to the mysterious masses of `crop circles' that had plagued the world for years. But, as time passed and the answers with it, Matt decided to split the partnership and take a real job.

This is probably one of the worst stories I have attempted to read. The plot is rushed, the characters are boring and the story lacks anything compelling. Aside from the incredibly bad grammar, this book is hardly worthy of calling itself science fiction. Two people who photograph and record crop circles give their crop circle "data" to some random person they just met who feeds the "data" into some super computer and it spits out a bunch of numbers that the three of them put together and conclude aliens are going to visit. What is this based on? What is the "data?" Where did these numbers come from? The circumference of the circles? The number of circles? Nothing is explained. The reader is just expected to accept that the crop circles have a hidden pattern with no explanation. This is just lazy fiction with no depth. It is very apparent the author has no clue about science fiction and no idea how to write or edit.

For those who prefer not to read my longer review, my overall opinion is that despite some poor editing of this edition of the book, the story is very well done and enjoyable and it has my wholehearted recommendation.

Story:
When I found out about the story for this title, I suspected it could go either the "Disaster Movie" route or a more traditional science fiction route. I was pleasantly surprised that the overall story had a more "this is probably what would happen in this situation" feel. The sense of realism was very refreshing. It did not get too wrapped up in the science to leave a reader with a headache; as it should be as the science aspect was not the main focus of the story. The high drama of a "Disaster Movie" did not come into effect until it was appropriate; this made for an exciting, edge of your seat reading. As well as the realistic approach of the situation presented in the story, there is also a plot in regard to humans stepping out onto the galactic scene. This aspect of the story and the character interactions gave me a sense of Star Trek, Mass Effect, and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; this part of the universe I am looking forward to be explored more in future readings. I can actually see this book becoming a movie or a television mini-series (yes, I have signed the petition to make it so).

Writing:
I feel it worth mentioning is my enjoyment of the author's writing style. I have recently read too many books were the author gets overly descriptive with setting up the scene of the story. They seem to fear the opposite effect of not giving enough details that leave people scratching their heads.

I'm a huge fan of disaster movies. Independence Day, Deep Impact, Armageddon, and 2012 (naturally!). So when I came across this book, I will say the cover caught me, and the title intrigued me. My first disaster book! I eagerly loaded this onto my iPad and settled back to read.

I liked the premise of the story. We (humans) were warned 8 years in advance that the end was coming. No way to avoid it, had to accept it. Fortunately, a group of nice aliens came to the rescue with a way to evacuate the people of Earth to another planet. I thought the story was original. I enjoyed how well thought out it was, how comprehensive it was.

However...

Whereas this book had a good story, there were many, and I do mean MANY, typos, grammatical errors, fragmented sentences, and so on. Ordinarily I can let some typos go. Even some fragmented sentences, provided it contributes to the story, can be overlooked. Plain and simple, this story had formatting issues. Quotes in the wrong place, text in different sizes, indents in the wrong place, and even some words consistently used that were incorrect. For example, I kept seeing references to people being "clam". I'm pretty sure they meant "calm". Sentences were run together, and oftentimes appeared to be copied and pasted together so that the flow of the story was interrupted and I had to jump back to the previous page to determine what was trying to be conveyed.

If it wasn't for the grammatical errors, I could have easily given this story 4 stars, even 4.5 stars. With the help of an editor, proofreader, another set of eyes, etc., this story could easily be one that I'd read over and over again.
