    OK but not great.

    This is really a short story and not a real book. It was average at best.

    "You're only worried about your race, but our worries are b

    "You're only worried about your race, but our worries are broader in scope." --the Captain

    The story takes place in the present day, in a galaxy far, far away, to steal a familiar beginning to an old classic. The majority of this book takes place on the "Collector" ship and begins in the orbit around earth and continues in an adventure "locale" that spans across the universe until its conclusion.

    The story's hero is Chris Mathers. He's "a regular bozo in a loveless relationship" on the third rock from the sun. Even his name somewhat suggests a kind of mundane existence on our planet, viz., "Jerry Mathers as 'the Beaver.'" He is a likable, frustrated character who is thrown into a fascinating "fish out of water" adventure.

    There are several supporting characters that move the story along: the Captain, the alien in charge of the Collector Ship; the First Mate; Number Three; Number Four; and Sambda, the beautiful and gigantic alien life form that is hotter than an Arizona tin roof in July. The aliens have an interesting character makeup that reminds me much of the mythical gods of the Romans, Greeks or Vikings, possessing human faults and foibles.

    The plot summary is a general Action Plot, if I might draw a comparison to the Jarvis Method of novel writing, and I would categorize its plot type as the "Locale Adventure" story (again alluding to the Jarvis Method). Although it does possess some subtle elements that could have conveyed a Myth Plot, the lack of character arch presents this story squarely into in the Action Category within this Science Fiction genre.

    The first Inciting Incident takes place at approximately the 27% mark of the book, when a "Gray" alien escapes the Collector Ship. From that point, the story really takes off as a page turner. Initially, I thought the first 10% of the book was a little insipid, or even flat, but because it was a bit tedious, even lifeless, it actually laid an exceptional contrast to the action and adventure that prevailed after the first inciting incident.

    This book may not be for everyone. Don't compare Adam Moon with Isaac Asimov. Need I say "apples and oranges"? If you are looking for a deeply character driven novel, like Herman Wouk's THE CAINE MUTINY, with a great character arch in Willie Keith, then this isn't the book for you.

    If, however, you are looking for a great action-adventure in the Science Fiction genre; a story that has a kind of edginess that has come with the return of serial pulp fiction, then this is your book. If Ray Bradbury and Quentin Tarantino had a love child, their offspring might be Adam Moon's SEQUENCE. Again, this work is a plot-driven story, not character driven.

    I read the book on my Amazon Cloud Reader and it was formatted well. Easy on the eyes and that made it that much more of a page turner.

    If there was one thing I would change about the book, I would have included a table of contents, which was missing. There is Rated R language throughout the book so I would not call this a book for teens.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, read it in one sitting, and will read it again.
