Review by: Jill Bemis on Oct. 15, 2011 :
Aliens Maher and Jules hop planet-to-planet, these desperate leaps for survival leads them to Planet Earth and a spiritual rebirth.

Author Joseph Fullam’s planet hopping sexual escapades find teenagers Maher and Jules using their talents and inner energy to survive when they don’t automatically do what society expects of them. It’s hard when you find out everything you thought was true is not, and that your life of privilege was taken away because of your parentage, but in this case, shock, frustration and yearning lead two teenagers to develop and evolve into the spiritual beings following the true path of light. Fast paced and confusing at times, this story is about self-centered immature characters that stumble upon very limited enlightenment than any real sort of self-actualization. The climax literally and figuratively is just as baffling.

Review by: Amy Eye on Aug. 11, 2011 :
This book seems to be written by someone who really has no idea how to create a plot. I only finished the book to see if there was a point to it after all. There wasn't. Not only did the author create an overly confusing atmosphere and traversed us to many different places, non of which were described decently, we have a slut for a main character who uses her sexuality to get what she wants and to hold the other main character in the palm of her hand to get what she wants when she wants it.

We have multitudes of races that were never properly described, a created language thrown in there for what seems no other reason than try to impress the reader. There were a lot of concepts that could have been developed, but they simply weren't. This is a book of very bad decisions from start to finish. The characters all make bad decisions right from the start, and it finishes with bad decisions. The concept of the book was a good one, it was just never carried out

The plot was understandable, but things moved way to fast. I think the author would do well to learn how to slow down and be more descriptive. The continual jumping around between planets made it hard to keep up.

Not sure where the author was going with the story about 2 "teens" who are on the run from some shadowy group out to stop them from fulfilling their destiny. What destiny? Still not sure, but this story had a lot of potential to be great. Almost a marrige of Dune and 2001but just not all that readable

I found this book really hard to read, it jumped around alot and I found it hard to remember where it was going and why. I didn't like the characters, they only seemed interested in drugs and sex, and although they claimed to love each other it was only shown through sex. The author kept refering to the characters as "the teen" which got very annoying very quickly. I also didn't really understand the plot, they didn't really have any specific goals, and certainl didn't reach any goals (unless you count them having sex).

This is the second book by this author that I have read. I received this book free in exchange for a review. This book seemed to flow better, in my opinion, that "The Virgin King." The plot was more understandable, but things moved way to fast. I think the author would do well to learn how to slow down and be more descriptive. The continual jumping around between planets made it hard to keep up.

Also I feel like there was far more sex in the book than was necessary to the plot line. The author could have easily kept it cleaner, once we knew the female character used her sexuality to get her way, there was no need to be so repetitive.

The book was also full of spelling and punctuation errors, which I realize happens when there is no formal editing process. Still, I think the author could have had someone proof read it to help make some corrections.

Overall, interesting concept, but it could use some work to be improved to increase readiability and understandability.

Review by: Norma Wills on Feb. 26, 2011 :
At first, I was wondering how a self-published author would be able to pull off such an ambitious project. I have to say that Joseph Fullam definitely does that and more.

Maher’s mother drops a bombshell on him. His father is not just away on another planet doing research. He is actually no longer in a physical form. And they are not really from Juniper. This changes his whole perspective on life as he knows it. However, he is warned that some of his research may lead to the Quadra to come after him.

Then the action starts. You follow Maher and Jules as they traipse across planets in order to fight for their lives.

There were small things like grammar and spelling that were a little messed up. But that happens when you are working without an editor. And the things that I noticed that were incorrect, I sent a message off to Joe and he was quite happy that I brought it to his attention.

Review by: J. Robert Ewbank on Feb. 22, 2011 :
This book by Joseph Fullam is one about the future and covers basically two characters, one male and one female. They have their times in the future and it is an interesting read, especially for those who like sci fi.
