The only part I did not like about the book was it ended. I can hardly wait for the next installment of "Earth - The Arena" series.
I highly recommend this book.
The storyline was quite intriguing and had me curious to read more. As well, R.D. Wilson's writing style is that of a metaphoric master and is quite beautiful. The figurative language literally flows like poetic torrents over a waterfall of imagery. (My feeble attempt at emulation ...) Sometimes, however, the story itself gets lost in the metaphors and one has to stop and reread just to make sense of what is actually taking place. Not that I don't like wonderful description - I do, but perhaps there is something to be said for `too much of a good thing'.
Figurative language aside, there were other aspects of the book that were a bit of a paradox. There are some very long `scientific' explanations that appear occasionally. It is all well and good to create a theory about how the spiritual dimension operates, but to have it described in textbook detail was, well ... boring. These expository sections slowed the story down, and were probably more than I needed to know. Just keep the story moving forward, please!Read more ›
The author does a wonderful job of making the characters real. I honestly felt like I was in the story along with them. The story also makes you think about beliefs and possibilities. There is a unique point of view and story here that I won't do 'spoilers' on but if you like SciFi, you will enjoy this book.
I rate this a 5/5. I can't wait to read the next 'chapter' in this story!
Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book. I recieved this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
Absolutely amazing story that I couldn't put down! In a year when Awakening and Armageddon go hand in hand... this book unfolds a story that leaves nothing to the imagination. Well thought out characters, scientific exploration, alien encounters, ancient civilizations, and a little Spiritual intervention in the Biblical sense... are just some of what the reader will find in store for them.
Doc who has his close encounter years before is given a path to follow in order to fulfill his destiny. With Bev, his devoted wife and colleague by his side, they embark on finding a group of "right" people to work on this project with them. Funded by unknown supporters, the ETA/PAX program is unveiled with David, an Electronic Engineer and Sashi, the daughter of a fellow Professor playing key rolls. Their success in an experiment to connect on a physic level not only opens a door to fame, but opens a door to Other worldly beings who have been trying to contact us for years. But are these beings Good or Evil? As there is another force also living and communicating with humans who considers these beings Evil and will stop at nothing to thwart the mission to spread Peace. Action packed and full of twists this story will keep you in its grips until the very end! Bring on Book 2!
This is a definite must read for anyone loving Paranormal Sci-fi thrillers. A real who done it, that will have you questioning the very faith of the world we know!

Overly poetic prose, and a wobbly story line at best. I will admit that I only made it through 40% of the book, (according to kindle) but i just could not bear it anymore.Published on January 8, 2014 by Matt

I found "The Players" to be a bit far out their, past the realm of plausibility. The story just missed the ingredients to keep an interest going.Published on January 11, 2013 by ladyangel
