Genellan: In the Shadow of the Moon

Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
Science Fiction Book Club Selection

Sharl Buccari was a living legend. She had established a foothold on Genellan—a beautiful new world, raw and unforgiving—becoming allies with the native cliff dwellers.

Now the challenge was to engineer peace with the other race inhabiting the same system—the kones—and to build a colony for the children of humanity.

About Scott G. Gier

I am a lucky man. Born and pretty much raised in Hawaii, I graduated from the US Naval Academy and became a Naval Aviator. There are no smarter, more genuine, more professional people than those that you will find in the American armed services. I am honored to be a veteran. There are also no better toys than Navy jets, and there are few adrenaline-pumping routines on this planet that can match landing on or taking off from an aircraft carrier. I was also privileged to be a regular watch-standing officer-of-the-deck, underway, on board the USS Hancock, a WWII vintage attack carrier.

After six years in the Navy (the Vietnam War was ending), I went to work for the next quarter-century or so in Silicon Valley, California, where I was again privileged to work with individuals of exalted intelligence and ambition: entrepreneurs. Working primarily in manufacturing and later in project management and customer service, I participated in the technological miracle of lasers, computers, and corporate software almost all at the start-up company level. Believe me, if you want to have fun (and angst) working, go join a start-up in the San Francisco Bay Area...

I have always enjoyed hiking and the outdoors and have come to believe that humanity's most important asset (after our respective families) is the Earth beneath our feet. That love of nature and my experiences in the military and high-technology companies define my novels.

Review by: Michael Sanches on April 01, 2012 :
I have enjoyed the first 2 books in the series. I like the interaction of the 4 different species. There is a nice combination of space science fiction with the wide outdoors. I enjoy how the author adapts technology to both the physical and social characteristics of each race. The story and plot I rate a 5. The writing, itself, is a bit tedious. I can handle it, because I like the story. This is definitely one of those books you want to preview. If you enjoy the first 10% (not too tedious for you), you will enjoy the series. I found it a bit difficult to follow his spaceship explanations. However, I think he has done a great job in providing a superior description of space travel and how people would cope.

Review by: Bruce Andis on Oct. 13, 2011 :
I was captivated by Gier's first in this series, "Genellan: Planetfall." The second "Genellan: In The Shadow Of The Moon," meets the expectations built by the first. Happily, readers of "In The Shadow" will get to spend lots of quality time with my favorite character -- the planet Genellan.

Buy this book. You will not be disappointed.
