When two-hundred year old human remains are found on one of Neptune’s moons, Earth’s history falls into chaos. The momentous discovery points planet earth towards a solar system a thousand light years away.
Twenty years later, Captain Philip Wakefield and his team on-board the starship Excelsior, reach the solar system of Mintaka and continue the investigation but they are not the only thing evolving in the galaxy. Something frightening has them in its sights. Their discovery of the very cradle of humankind becomes a struggle for interstellar survival.This was one CRAZY story!
Crazy in the best way possible. I loved the blending of science fiction and fantasy. I finished this book in one sitting because I couldn’t possibly sleep without knowing what the conclusion would be.
The ending? Surprising, but not infuriating like some ‘shocking’ endings.
At times I felt like I was skipping between an episode of Supernatural and a Star Trek film. Being compared to these two is by all means a compliment. I loved the world created in this novel. Everything was detailed to perfection. From sights to sounds, the reader lives the experience with the protagonist.
The prose was tight and compelling. I am not usually a fan of sci-fi because I find the writing to be too blah blah blah and blah blah. Otherwise known as wordy. Gilwood get’s straight to the point and therefore the story flows brilliantly.
Definitely recommend this gem of a book to mature readers of all genres.Connect With Michael: http://stevewoodenpoets.wix.com/books
