    Good story idea, but not executed very well. I felt like the characters were somewhat shallow, and quite possibly somewhat dim.
    Scenes
    that were pivotal to the story were glossed over in a paragraph or two. Pacing seemed inconsistent. Overall I was not impressed

    Love this book of alien discovery!

    This was a great book. It developed slowly and drew me into some nice surprises.

    A salute to Mr.Brown

    Being fortunate to read both Helix and Helix Wars back to back i found myself caught in possibilities, probabilites, and lookng at current state of our world slide subtely into view with little effort i was amazed at the clarity which held my attention for hours. Not a Sci-Fi fan i was amazed again at the grip both books held me in. Thank you again
