 I have been very intrigued with this book. Can't go wrong with Aliens.. Great characters, fascinating story line, detailed and very interesting. Absolutly worth the read!. Great surprises.  W. Blake Heitzman has a very creative and brilliant mind. I have also had the pleasure of interviewing him on my Paranormal web series World Wide Paranormal Network (W-W-P-N). His thoughts, theories and life stories are phenomenal. I have enjoyed this book and interviewing him! Great Author and person! Thank you Blake, I can't wait to read any up coming books and more of your blog!

I have read alot of sci fi books since I got my nook, and this by far is my favorite. I even had to slow down reading so it would last longer. What more can I say, I'm going to read it again.

Interesting concept with lots of surprises. Great characters. Some of the trips into the past were a little too much. Didn't really advance the story. Just extended the book length. A little pruning would improve the pace and make this a 5-star. Still a great read and I look forward to the sequal.
