Just finished reading this book last night and I can't wait for the next one. If I had to describe the book in one word "INTRIGUING" would do it. Every page leaves you eager for the next, and every answer brings more questions. This is a book you just can't put down! I highly recommend it to anyone, not just sci-fi fans but to anyone who likes a well written, captivating story!
This short story provides a little closer look at the Terran, and provides some insightful information into one of the primary characters of the series. Though the book is not as exciting as First Contact itself, it still turns up pieces of information and adds it's own questions to the story line. This is the first support book I have read to a series released during the series, and for the price (especially if you bought First Contact) I am open to the idea of getting glimpses of information that are beyond the scope of the story. I have read many books that were support for a series which were written after the final book to explain this or that from a story. This approach is something different, little bits of extra information tossed in as we move along.
This is what I was looking forward to, a great follow up to First Contact! As the next stage of the series begins new adventures unfold and off we go again. The ship is almost ready for launch, time to start making new discoveries. With each new event, I have again found almost as many questions as I did answers within this book. I'll leave you to ask your own after you read it. Enjoy for yourself, I know I did!
Another intriguing story! We get to draw some interesting parallels between what is happening to our world in the series and what has happened to other worlds encountered by the Gamin and their enemies.
Keeps adding questions for the main series. I rated this book 4 stars to avoid the negative comments received from giving First Contact 5 stars, even though that is what I would like to do. I thoroughly enjoyed the read, and as a non-professional reviewer can only give my personal opinion, I LOVE THIS SERIES!!
