Edward Todd Ward II, his two young friends, and a Major in the Space Administration barely escape capture by the U.N. Secret Service.

Meet the Author

IVIS BO DAVIS grew up on a potato farm outside the tiny town of Filer in southern Idaho, which may well have fueled his thirst for adventure since little excitement seemed to happen there. A veteran of the Viet Nam conflict, he discovered more adventure than he really wanted during the war and the social unrest that followed. Now he writes science fiction to explore the universe without actually giving unfriendly strangers the opportunity to shoot at him. Bo lives in Garland, Texas, USA, with his wonderful wife, Elaine, and a beautiful blue-eyed beauty in the form of a snow white cat named Lenny.

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite Xterra Conspiracy: Book 1 by Ivis Bo Davis begins with Todd as a child suffering a nightmare in which a ship filled with colonists is hit by an asteroid, killing everyone on board. The Earth’s magnetic field is weakening and the survival of the human race is questionable. The governments of the Earth cooperate in the search for an answer and they may have found it in the stars and in an Ark. The Ark is a huge space ship created to carry colonists deep into space so that mankind will survive. Whenever a government is involved, you usually find some form of power struggle and corruption, and as the title suggests, Xterra Conspiracies has a variety of conspiracies. Author Ivis Bo Davis is a talented author who has successfully created potential scenarios that made me stop and wonder if they could really happen. Whether they will or not, only time will tell. Xterra Conspiracy: Book 1 by Ivis Bo Davis is entertaining for readers young and old, and is definitely recommended to fans of science fiction.

I liked this book more than the first one. I felt like Ivis developed the characters further and made them more approachable. The space battles were AWESOME! The physics was believable behind the zero and low-G combat. There was barely a minute of this book that I wasn't holding my breath hoping that the characters would pull it off. The description of the destruction of the Earth is very thought out and detailed. The God element was threaded better throughout this book. A much improvement on the first one. It's a quick read. I would've liked it to be longer. I recommend this book to the same people as the first book.
