Editorial Reviews

O. Orion
This is a book about first contact with an alien species that is not hostile or out to conquer the earth. There are some interesting alien technologies, which are way ahead of anything humans have currently.
Their culture is for a lack of a better word 'alien', but it works well in the story. The division on the earth, between governments, is also well placed within the story.
I liked the book and how it was written.The ending of the book is unique or different from the norm.

This book is about first contact with aliens that are far more advanced than humans, but all they want is to befriend us and get some assistance repairing their damaged ships. Most stories have the aliens as bad characters right from the beginning. This book doesn't do that and it is refreshing. The aliens technology is far superior to ours, but they just want to contact us and ask us for help in fixing their ships that have been damaged. Their culture is different from us and there are many misunderstandings between us. I don't want to give away the story so won't say anymore. Although the book has a different ending than the norm. Which is great to see a twist in book endings,it just seems that a sequel is needed to finish the story. It leaves you guessing. I totally enjoyed the book and the way the story was written. The author put a lot thought into it. Its a good read for any Sci Fi fan. I only ask, when is the next book coming out?
