Alex Detail has been kidnapped and sent off to fight in a hopeless war against The Harvesters, an alien force that is trying to extinguish Earths Sun. Unfortunately for Alexs kidnappers (and the world) he has lost the mega-IQ that allowed him to win the last war with The Harvesters ten years ago when he was just 7 years old. But now the House of Nations is out of options. The end of life is imminent. Alex must survive the war long enough to make it to Pluto, where, underneath the planets frozen surface lies the only force in the solar system that can stop The Harvesters.

What People are Saying About This
Alex Detail's Revolution is an outstanding book - compelling, thought-provoking, and fun all at the same time. In some ways Darren Campo has created a mythical, fanciful alternate-reality counterpart of Beyond Cosmic Dice. (Jeff Schweitzer, former White House Science Advisor, Author of Beyond Cosmic Dice and Vote to Save the Planet.)
Alex Detail's Revolution starts out as if Douglas Adams had decided to write Ender's Game. But what develops isn't cosmic lark as much as a riveting thriller that delves into examinations of time, space and, interestingly, the human capacity for faith - or the lack thereof. (Ken Wheaton, Advertising Age, author or First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival)
With Alex Detail, Darren Campo has created the rare hero that stands alongside Luke Skywalker and Spiderman as a timeless everyman hero that crosses all generations. So buy this book and hold on. (Tom DeSanto, Writer/Producer X-Men, Transformers)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read a great deal of reviews for this book ,both good and bad before requesting this..I just got really curious to what became one of the Amazon¿s bestselling sci-fis..I¿d rather say that for those who said this is some work like a techno-babble, you might be wrong, that¿s how sci-fi works, it might get too confusing but admit it¿this book is great and in its finest¿ if you can¿t stand lengthy science explanations then why bother to read one when you know you won¿t really appreciate it?..This book is made by a sci-fi genius and is intended for sci-fi lovers, you can¿t expect a romance-addict to be addicted into this.. As for the missing pages, I guess it happens to ARC¿s but mines perfectly ok..By the way..the plot although not entirely unique¿ the author made sure to include a great deal of originality in his work while combining techniques and styles from others to make his work to perfection¿It was a fast-read..with vivid descriptions and stunning characters.. With twist and turns everywhere, a never-ending story that didn¿t slow down.. It seems that I can¿t get enough of the revelations and mysteries unfolding in the story..I¿ll admit that the end goes a little down¿but it¿s a cliff-hanger so what could anyone do about it than to wait and read the sequel of the book?Mr. Campo offered readers with a book that could stir your imagination to things yet unknown to humans..it¿s a new world of creation and destinies, life and death, computers, programs, aliens and many more¿. It could make you think that this might happen a million years from now¿how would it be like when the sun, the stars start dying out in other galaxies, could there really be a star-stealing?This book would definitely be someday a Hollywood thriller, you could liken it to Star Wars but in books..I believe that Alex Detail¿s Evolution would be better at the camera!I¿m hooked¿so off to read the sequel¿ Grab this book..and see for yourself!..highly recommended..:)
