Professor Landon Thorne, once ridiculed for his theories about alien life, comes into possession of two “firestones” that may be tied to Atlantis and the aliens, but before he can discover more about their properties, he loses possession of both. With various factions vying for the firestones, aliens roaming the planet, an underground resistance movement, government agents, crosses and double crosses, D. L. Cross sets a breathless pace for readers. There are characters to love, characters to DESPISE, and plenty of nail-biting action. The chapters are energy fueled, most ending on jaw-dropping hooks, making it all but impossible to put this book down. With its complex plot, I could easily see The Stones/ Astral Conspiracy a Netflix series or a blockbuster movie. Fabulous!
Landon Thorne discovers a new weapon that could defend the world but several groups want to stop him. The government, rogue agents, aliens. He embarks on a journey to the Georgia Guidestones where he finds what could be the key to survival.
The action is fast-paced. Every chapter is a cliffhanger that keeps you wanting to know more.
The characters are three dimensional—from a power-hungry AATIP agent to a priest who believes he’s been placed on earth to save people from the end times. Not to mention the bazaar aliens.
Ms. Cross has a unique way of bringing depth to the characters in what is usually a plot-driven genre.
I highly recommend this book and yes, I’m already reading the third of the series.
Cross creates a completely believable world of trauma, fear, and unbelievable problems as mankind must contend with an invasion from an unknown species. Do scientists take the lead or military? And is this related to the alien that has been in captivity for almost one hundred years? It has certainly reacted to the arrival of the spaceships but whether it's looking for escape or protection, no one can tell because it refuses to (or can't) communicate with the humans.
Cross writes with a deft pen and a clever mind, putting us in the middle of the struggle many fear--an invasion from space. This book and its predecessor in the series are fast-moving, exciting, and easily kept me engaged. Kudos to Cross.
Book 3, The Nine, is already available.
In this book, the aliens have landed. Professor Landon Thorne is front and center again. But the story tracks a number of contingents with separate agendas - from a paramilitary “resistance” unit to a brutal agency called CORE to a fanatical priest who believes the aliens are the spawn of the Devil. There’s a lot going on.
Thorne’s focus is on following several ancient clues that might explain the aliens’ objectives and how to defeat them. Thorne’s knowledge is interesting, entangled with well-researched speculation into the akashic records, Atlantean firestones, and the Georgia Guidestones. He and his team are at risk as the factions attempt to protect, control, or kill them.
The aliens are still a mystery in this book. They come in several variations and can be incredibly violent. Cross doesn’t hold back on the human violence either, which raises the stakes for all the characters. The world-building is great and full of details that add authenticity.
It’s clear that the series is one long and complex story, and therefore should be read in order. This book doesn’t wrap up neatly but ends with a big cliffhanger. The good news is that the series will be complete at the end of September 2020 so readers can keep going without a hitch. A highly recommended series for sci-fi fans.
I thought it was moving right along, but it shifted into high gear towards the end and left me flipping pages like a madman. You can bet I’m picking up The Nine this afternoon.
