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.Read more ›
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).
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.Read more ›
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.
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.

I could see It happening as I was reading it. Just a little to predictable. You could tell all the main people were going to be saved.Published on January 10, 2013 by Paul G. Royal
