J. R. Egles has written an exciting adventure with a lot of humor and wit. Driscoll's Marauders are almost slapstick in their bungling but miraculously successful escapades. Everything Driscoll does is designed to enable him to discover if there are beings out in space watching him as he has imagined since childhood. When contact is finally made, the alien civilization sends a series of messages and their main question is "How could you possibly have developed the technology for space travel and the ability to communicate with an advanced alien civilization and still be so socially primitive? How can you not care for your own people? Do you not realize that you are all connected?"
Egles has written a fascinating story with a real message for us all. I did find that the time jumps over the fifteen years, going from one adventure to another, were a bit disconnected and many of the characters were not as fully developed as I would have liked. Nevertheless, it was an exciting read, with a good well-paced plot that came together over time. Certainly Driscoll, the main protagonist, moved through the story from the time he was a boy with a single-minded determination, his eyes clearly focused on the stars where he knew someone was watching him.
I enjoyed this novel and I would certainly hope that it finds many readers who take to heart the message that everything is connected.

The writing style is excellent and fluent, especially given that (to my knowledge) the author wasn't an avid writer. It comes across as something that was written with passion and possibly a yearning for. The description given was perfect, giving just enough to provide a framework for people with little imagination, but not too much as to drown out the story in adjectives. All together a brilliant book, the ending was amazing, and I would have loved to have read a sequel.
