Review

What the readers are saying;

"Si Rosser's new novel IMPACT POINT is an outstandingly good and enjoyable read. It welds mystery and adventure into a very well-written thriller. I recommend it 100%" - Author, TV presenter and Priest Lionel Fanthorpe

"A jolly good read."

"Action packed."

"Eco-thriller meets Sci-Fi."

"Unusual adventure thriller."

From the Author

The Tunguska Event mentioned above is no longer the most recent sizable meteorite to have struck the Earth. Incredibly, on 15th February 2013 - coincidentally almost exactly 1 year after IMPACT POINT was published - a house-sized meteorite weighing about 9000 tonnes has again hit Russia's Siberia region injuring around 1000 people in the city of Chelyabinsk. Analysis reveals that the meteor first became visible around 92 kilometers above ground. Just over 11 seconds later, at a height of nearly 32 kilometers, it exploded spectacularly under the stress of heating and air drag with the force of over 30 Hiroshima bombs... IMPACT POINT is a science fiction techno-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final page is turned!

SI ROSSER
 is the author of TIPPING POINT, the first book in the Robert Spire series, IMPACT POINT, the second, and MELT ZONE, the third Spire novel. The adventures don't necessarily need to be read in order, but it is preferable. The author is currently working on the fourth Spire thriller -CATACLYSM of the ANCIENTS, and has just released, VAPORIZED

This is the second novel by this author that I have read, and this will not be the last. This novel is an excellent mix of eco-thriller, sc-fi, adventure all rolled into one. We all know from our general knowledge and movies about doomsday predictions, of the Earth being devasted by an asteroid hit, or even Hollywood's attempt at stopping such space rocks from hitting the Earth, and yet this novel does not appear stale or uninteresting. The author seems to have done reasonable amounts of research to present sound scientific facts, and has done an admirable job of using the science to tell an entertaining story. The novel is unpretentious, and there are no indications of an overreach by the author -- he confines himself to his knowledge and research to tell a tale in simple, lucid English. The ebook edition has a few editing errors, and the formatting is a tad clumsy (mainly, the chapters start from a mid page or the page bottom), though. Overall, very highly recommended.

I was deciding which book to read next. I read the blurb for this book and was going to reject it, because environmental novels or novels about disasters don't usually appeal to me. I kept reading the blurb, and noticed there was a speculative element to the story, which reminded me a bit of Man Plus by Frederick Pohl.

I was not disappointed once I started reading the story. I have been unable to finish the last few stories I had started reading, but this brought back the energy I felt the others lacked. It was action-packed from the start, and the author soon brings the reader into the story with the 'problem', which was the mysterious beaching of a few whales.

I particularly liked the James Bond element to Impact Point. It was James Bond, transformed from the Cold War setting to a modern world, where terrorists lurk, Twitter and Facebook and YouTube are present, and mobile phones are in use. However, it wasn't all James Bond. The two main characters were very action-oriented, but they had different backgrounds. I felt we didn't learn too much about Travis Dexter's past, but this didn't bother me as much because I was overawed with his quick-thinking abilities.

The impending disaster allowed for a very exciting read as the reactions of the main characters coincided with larger forces. I also commend the author on the originality of the scientists, in the terms of their aims. It was a very realistic read.

However, I didn't give it five stars, but it was close. My reasoning was that the number of grammatical and spelling mistakes increases as the reader gets further into the story. It did bother me a bit, since I am a perfectionist, and it is a factor in whether I would decide to read another book by this author. The story itself was great, and on that merit I would certainly read this author's work again.

Again, as I find in much modern literature, way too much violence and unrealistic chase scenes. Also, it becomes clear that the author did not research U S culture very well as indicated by his reference to mountain bikers in the southwest heading home for tea time and other reference that make it apparent the author is unfamiliar with U S culture.

"Impact Point" by Simon Rosser is the unusual adventure eco-thriller novel, as someone has well-written.

In his novel, the author combined several plot streams to tell a story about future global cataclysm, which among others is foreboded by mysterious whale deaths....
This is the first novel by this author I read and certainly he must be acknowledged for creation of sub-genre of thriller literature - some mix of thriller, adventure, SF and environment awareness literature.

The author successfully avoided making another global doomsday piece which can be found everywhere, both in literature and movie industry, by using scientific facts about environment that is the theme inn which he knows his way around.

He writes in simple and easy-to-read style, though in e-book edition can be found many spelling and grammatical mistakes due to which more sensitive readers could be annoyed, something that I hope was corrected in physical copy release.

At some points through the story author will run into some clichés recalling the memories of some cheaper action movies, but somehow it all seems part of his charm.

Therefore, speaking generally, don't expect some literary masterpiece, but as fun and unpretentious literature with interesting story that introduced some good characters, "Impact Point" by Simon Rosser could be recommended.

"Again , a very enjoyable read. The techno babble was not overly done and lent itself well to the story. Action and excitement was plentiful enough to keep me engaged. The only bad part is that I am now finished. On to the next one! Keep on writing Mr. Rosser."

I enjoyed the fast-paced tempo, characters, plot and subplots. I would have given it five stars, but when American English mixes with British English I just wish the author would have the right version of English written for the proper character. Americans don't say "drove to the car park". We "park the car"or "drive to the parking lot". Very minor thing unless you're trying to obtain believability. With that said, I would still highly recommend this book and the author, Simon Rosser.
