    And then there was the Quantum Refractor...

    I love when I can't put a book down. Right Ascension was one of those kind of books. The plot just keeps going and going without getting hung up on technicalities and also offering some food for thought. My only complaint with this book is that I wanted more. So, I immediately started the sequel, Declination!

    Can one man save the world?

    This first novel by David Derrico is a solid good read. Well-drawn characters and a straightforward style propel the story as we follow Admiral Daniel Atgard across the universe and back as he confronts multiple alien threats to destroy Earth and all its inhabitants. What will he do? Will honor and conscience prevail? Derrico gives us both suspense and moral questions to consider. Definitely an author to watch.

    Definitely Well Worth the Read!

    I have to admit, I don't usually pick science fiction to read, but this book got my attention because of the philosophical and ethical dilemmas it conveyed. I'm glad it did not get too technical or it would have lost my interest. This book is definitely written at a high level - there are some difficult vocabulary words used. The author has a great command of the English language and I appreciate his use of good sentence structure and grammar. I look forward to reading the next one.
