Book three of this epic adventure culminates as the forces of earth are united against an alien force of advanced and overwhelming power. The door is left open for further challenges. All three books are an excellent read.
A great read. I too went to SIU and lived for an extended time in the area. It was a must read for me. Keep a copy handy if you ever travel the areas covered in the novel. You will the have ready guide to many of the best dining available.
Always fasinated by anything Mars, I found TCOM to be on par with the best of efforts. I started reading on a Saturday afternoon,stopping when I could no longer prevent sleep. Continuing the next day, I finished that afternoon. Somewhere that first day my psysic became in sync with Sam. For the better part of those two days, I was on Mars, traveling, thinking and wordering. How could I be on Mars and not explore? How could I end, how could I leave? The answer was not a choice, but the next step. As the last page was read, it was right.
Things about Roswell have always seem a little mysterious at best. I mean cover stories of weather ballons and swap gas are as unbelievable as the various UFO sightime accounts themselves. Anyway, enough for me to take a look at this "true account". If yo add the secrective militay intellegence and the evil aspect of the CIA, then almost anything is beleivable. This first part was good enough for me to want to read the complete series. Try it you'll fing it very entertaining.
The second book gets quite a bit more interesting. Lot of questions from the first book are answered as the story progesses. More of the dreade CIA, of course. More characters are added and crarry though to the last book. Well writen and impossible not to continue on the the last book. By this time, your hooked. The final book awaits you.
The next fantastic chapter of the adventures of Denise and Layla. The Southern Illinois duo become involved in the rescue two young women kidnapped into forced prostitution and sex slavery. Their successful rescue triggers a revenge retalation buy the Rome based western european syndicate. It now is a fight to the finish. Can Denise and Layla's love, humor and a steady supply of latte's and pizza win the day? Have fun, read on as the battle ensues.
Well, heres another book I read from start to finish, without stopping. While it has the fast paced action of a space opera, the premise of being thrust 400 years into the future adds the element of what if. How would you react, what would you do. It allows you inside the story, allows to to easily become part of the story. Want a personal adventure 400 years in the future? Read it, you will no be disapointed.
I read the first two volumes of Intergalatic Peddeler and thought there sure was a lot of crying women. The discription of volume three said it was a turning point for the volumes to follow. Well certaintly is for me, I can't take anymore of it. I had to force myself to finish it. I don't think there is one page of text that isn't filled with weeping women. Very few conversation are nothing more than two or more women crying, hugging and kissing each other. While there some interesting sci-fi concepts, if it ever (zero chance) became a movie, the audience would consist entirely of hormonaly imbalanced, mood changing, pregnet women crying uncontrollably. I gave it one star because there are no negative ratings. I added the author to my favorites after the first volume. I have now removed the author.
Another excellent instalment in the fight for earth. Clear your schedule before you start this one. I was up two nights till 3am to finish it. This the battle wasn't to prevent occupation of earth. With a planet killer as the enemies main offensive weapon, it was all or nothing fighting. Will the earth forces prevail or will the earth become a smoldering wasteland. Read on and get caught up in the battle for survival.
A really great story, not overwhelmed by high tech gadgets. Instead you get a cast of characters chosen by the aliens for their honor and integerity. They colonize a lush earth like planet, determined not to repeat the failings of the earth they have left behind. With deep character development and thought provoking philosophical concepts, this a rewarding read. I hope to see more from this author.
Now comes forth the Queen In Exile by Oliver Strong. We see our reach for Mars colonization from a previous torn earth, now reorganized and realigned in space exploration. Mr. Strong is at the height of his craft, as he weaves a credible tale of our first encounter with the Tillians as we atempt to land on Mars. Humans and Tillian share 99.99% of the same DNA and are considered by the Tillians to be Tillian. While dwarfing humans in stature and mental abilities, the Tillian civilazation has become stagnent. The daughter of the first human and Tillian conact, the first birth to a Tillian in 400 years, will become much more. Technology advances in a believable progression as humans and Tillian destines entertwine. I strongly recommend Qoeen in Exile. It certaintly begs to become the first installment of a hopefule larger saga.
