Join Dr. William Wilson as he seeks to understand the planet Sunev with the assistance of extraterrestrials Lena and Raven. He learns that the aliens have made amazing discoveries such as nano-medicine that improves health and the ability to halt aging.
Passages such as the following captured my attention. Raven creased his brow. “Our medicine is more advanced than yours,” he said. “We have a nano-medicine cocktail for major injuries that I need to drink. Nano proteins and chemicals will go to the wound and fix it.”
His novel is filled with rich dialogue that pulls the reader to the end. His extensive research makes The Ship Finder feel believable. Accompany Wilson, Lena and Raven on their journey as they outrun cyborgs and travel between Earth and Sunev.
Spell-binding, well-written novel that I highly recommend.
