Since Tony McFadden left Canada two decades ago he and his wife and two children have lived in the US Virgin Islands, various American cities (LA, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Fairfax), Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and now, finally (and for good), Australia.
All of those places and people have provided a wealth of characters and settings for his books, all filled with thrills, suspense and adventure. More about him can be found at http://www.TonyMcFadden.net

This was a pretty good read. It started a wee bit slow but once I got into it, I really enjoyed the book. Very original storyline. It wasn't too heavy of a read.
Two of a network of aliens from light years away are "Down Under" in Australia to help monitor Earth's technological advancements to ensure the safety of their own planet. What happens when one very smart professor develops a way to hop through spaces using wormholes right under their noses? DUUUUUN DUN DUUUUUUN...

This book was great fun to read. Now where did Bram Stoker get his inspiration from Dracula? Aliens! Aliens... that have been here for many hundreds of years, checking that we're not about to develop space travel and do to their planets, what we've done to native races on Earth... turn up and wipe them out.
It's got a bit of everything in it; it's a bit of a Sci-fi, with scenes from another planet, a bit of romance (across species!), oh... and a race against time to save the Earth. This book weaves the occasional fact among an added layer of fiction quite well - it makes it believable enough to enjoy the ride. Also - I'm from Sydney, so I enjoyed all the 'sight-seeing' in this book - almost like watching a picturesque movie made in my home town. A good fun read, that's quite unique.
This is the third book I've read by this author, since I discovered him through `Goodreads'... and I dare say I'll read some more of his books.
