Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Michael Robbins
This review is from: The Roswell Protocols (Kindle Edition)
Really enjoyed reading this book. You know the kind of books you really cant wait to get home and read at the end of the day? This is one of those books.
Amazon - Jeff Edwards
The action is plenty, the adventure is real and the entertainment is HIGH...in fact I normally would give this a full 5 stars, but I believe that we haven't seen the last of Allan Burd, and I am therefore reserving that fifth star for what will surely be a slam-bang follow-up...or at least I am HOPING for another book, whether a direct sequel or a stand-alone I don't really care. I rarely give out 5 stars for first novels believing that by doing so I don't really allow for much growth...where do
Amazon - R Dunaisky
I like Star Trek and the Star Wars movies, so when this book caught my attention I gave it a try. I'm glad I did! From start to finish this book was a blast. Much better than I expected. A spaceship crashes to Earth and from there on it never gets boring. It was a very fast, very fun read that I liked so much I bought the paperback version for a friend. I highly recommend it!

    Summary- When a UFO lands in the mountains of Canada, major military players suit up and race to claim the technology for themselves. This fast-paced, action-packed book follows the key players from Japan, Russia, the United States and Canada as some of them develop plans to invade Canada and take the ship back home. Each team will need to watch out for the aliens who are willing to kill to protect what is theirs. Things are never what they seem as each group discovers the motives behind their allies and the aliens.

    What I Liked- Author Allan Burd has done a great job of creating aliens that are both intriguing and terrifying. While the military protocol seemed to be “shoot first, ask questions later,” it was refreshing to see some of the aliens pause or choose to not kill when it would have been so easy for them. The design of the ship, both on the interior and exterior, was well done and allowed the reader the opportunity to get a glimpse into the lives of these beings from a far off world.

    Drawbacks- My biggest problem with this story was that there was a lot of backstory that needed to be told so that the reader could understand the motivations and how each country’s military worked. I know that these sections were necessary, but they did slow the beginning of the book down. Once you got passed that section things went much faster and were quite engaging. There was a lot of military jargon happening in the book, and being that I have no military background, I couldn’t always follow all the lingo.

    Once you got passed the beginning, this book was entertaining. It posed a lot of thought-provoking concerns about nations and their tendency to contain technology and use it for themselves at any cost.
