Editorial Reviews

Review

"This military thriller turn paranormal/science fiction adventure will leave you wanting more from Ms. London." - pking

"Irresistably pulpy technothriller; definitely bestseller material" "a good, pure technothriller vibe." - M Browne

"I liked the combination of action, drama and suspense." - J.W. Anderson

"a interstellar romp that will leave you breathless from the action and jumping between worlds." Logan Nance

"I loved the characters, especially the Hero, military guy with a heart." "I recommend this for teens and up" - Jodi

"This is, without doubt, a science fiction novel, but it also has strong ties to military-political intrigue in the present day which grounds the novel in a level of believability even when the "fiction" portion of the science asks you to stretch your mind into new levels of belief." "Amidst the black holes, space-time jumps, dark matter universes and other fascinating and well researched portions of the book, London delves into the human psyche, and lays bare its soul." "It's very creativity of concept makes it a standout in the field. That should draw you in. What will keep you there is the writing, the characterizations, and her deep understanding of the human psyche will keep you reading, and watching for the next in the series." - L. Cooper So,IReadThisBookToday

From the very first page, Ceri London had me hooked! I liked the combination of action, drama and suspense as we take a rollercoaster of a ride throughout the novel. The character and story development were very thorough. I really liked the characters of Niall Kearey, his wife, Tami, Dr. Jacqueline Bison, and Uathach. The novel had very likeable, interesting characters, to say the least. London paints a portrait of each of her characters with such lurid words. From the humans on Earth to the beings of Astereal, the characters are fleshed out and are made real for the reader.

The imagination, time, and effort that London put into the novel shines over all. I found myself completely enthralled with the beautiful, mystical landscapes that she creates, along with the realistic feel she gives everything in the novel. I very much enjoyed the scientific aspect of the novel, as well. As someone who is not into science fiction, per say, I thought this novel was spectacular! I am very anxious to read more.

I highly recommend this book.

PHENOMENAL!! I love this book, and I am so glad it is only the first of a series. I really took my time reading this. There was so much thought and intent put into each detail, that I wanted to make sure I took it all in. First, I love military-covert ops, strictly classified, GI-Joe, dirty politicians, shoot-em up stories - love em! I also happen to live for fantasy and science fiction especially... so the two married and had this beautiful child of a book. No review I give is going to do this story justice, but please take my advice and READ THIS BOOK!

Major Niall Kearey is a real life hero, he loves his country and serves it proudly, he loves his wife and family, and he is a stand up honest man... except he has been keeping a secret his whole life. The way the author weaves this world with one across the galaxy, is a beautiful thing. Human attributes make the natives of Astreal relate-able, and the way everything comes together is pure genius. I wish every ending was a satisfying as this one was. This military thriller turn paranormal/science fiction adventure will leave you wanting more from Ms. London. An absolutely amazing story!

Ceri London has written, in "Shimmer In The Dark: Rogue Genesis" one of the most powerful science fiction novels I have read since "Dune". Well, actually, it is better than "Dune". More creative, with a wider range and depth of reality, that is approachable to all readers. This is, without doubt, a science fiction novel, but it also has strong ties to military-political intrigue in the present day which grounds the novel in a level of believability even when the "fiction" portion of the science asks you to stretch your mind into new levels of belief. Some, I suppose, would lean more towards calling it `fantasy' as there are no space ships and Earth colonies on other planets. If you are one of the `hard sci-fi geeks' that some of my friends are you might be disappointed by no space rockets blasting around, I suppose, but that should in no way deter you from reading this jewel of a book.

Unlike many, and especially one of the reviewers of the book, I have no problem stretching credulity to new levels. I don't expect a science fiction or fantasy book to stay within the realm of `probability'. I expect to be taken to a new place, a new level of existence, while I expect that existence to still feel believable. I expect to be charmed into a new sense of reality for a short while. Something that Ms. London has done brilliantly in this, the first of a four-part series.

Niall Kearey is a very special person, with a very special family. As has been described by the blurb on the book, he can, with is mind, reach out across galaxies to what he thinks is a `dream world' - a world "racing towards annihilation" - a world soon to align with Earth, with unknown outcome.

I was continually awed and amazed by the plot twists and connections woven throughout this fast-paced story. The protagonist, Niall, is a kickass, Special Forces type who has an uncanny knack of smelling trouble and escaping just in the nick of time. This does not escape notice by his superiors who decide to find out exactly what his psychic abilities comprise. As it turns out, even Niall doesn’t understand their extent until he realizes the excursions he’s enjoyed since childhood to the distant planet, Astereal, were real, leaders on that planet now looking to him to save them as it’s in the process of being destroyed by the gravity of its neighboring dark stars, a.k.a. blackholes.

As the U.S. military fully recognizes his talents he of course becomes a threat and the intrigue begins. Earth’s magnetic grid plays an important role as do various locations where significant anomalies are known to exist and how they affect his abilities. The story cleverly weaves within its scientific premise such things as psi phenomena, astral projection, and teleportation along with a touch of conspiracy theory and the origin of ancient civilizations who possessed technologies we cannot duplicate today.

Anyone fascinated by quantum and string theory, psi phenomena, civilizations on other planets, or just any other unsolved mystery you can name or imagine up to and including “ancient aliens” will really enjoy this book and how it’s all tied together in such a credible way. My only criticism is that at times the story moved faster than I would have preferred, not allowing me to ponder and visualize the various locations and characters as much as I’d like but that will undoubtedly be rectified easily enough when I read it again, which I surely will.
