Overview

Volume 1 in the Alcantaran series.

Ron Calvin, Tik Michi and Gusissi 'Gus' Ugde Ghaolh were kidnapped from their separate planets by the Bugs. They were forced to work as slave laborers on the Bug's mother ship where they formed a unique partnership. Each partner has unique talents that complement the others. This creates a synergy where the partnership is stronger than the sum of its members. They form a friendship with another kidnapped being on the mother ship who teaches them to fly the ancient space ship the 'Galactic Antiquarian'. The Bugs found the 'Galactic Antiquarian' floating in space and have spent years trying to get it open to learn its secrets. The trio learns how to open parts of the ship and escape from the mother ship on the Galactic Antiquarian with a minimum of fuel, air, water and food. They must use their unique talents to unlock more of the secrets of the ancient space ship so they can restock these essential supplies while avoiding recapture by the Bugs and their allies. The Bugs want the ancient space ship back badly and are pulling no punches to get it back. Are the secrets of the ancient ship enough to help them to restock and avoid capture? How will the Alcantaran ghosts fit into the puzzle? Will the secrets or the ghosts help them find their three home planets somewhere in the midst of the trillion galaxies in the universe? Alien Abduction is the first book in the series "The Alcantarans".

I enjoyed this book and especially the fresh ideas and story. Like others, I too found the ine negative to be the authors overuse of works, as if he was talking to children, being precise and sometimes repetative. But I could read through or around and still enjoy.

First off, it was my mistake to have bought the book thinking that it contained TRUE stories of actual abduction(s). This e-book is strictly fiction. Nonetheless, I decided to keep it and read it since I'm a SyFy fan also. But, by page 75 (of 145 pages), I had to give it up,because the plot and subplot meander all over the place that I just could not keep up with the story lines, so it upped and lost my interest. For others though, this might be a good read.

The story and writing are childish. The book goes on forever and gets nowhere. The characters are so paper thin they are transparent. I'd be amazed if the writer's age was more than thirteen - a clear case of arrested development. A complete waste of time!

I love this book. I just had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. it's just realistic enough to make you think might this happen some day.

Excellent adventure and well worth the read. I look forward to the continuing series.

A quiet refletion of the classic SciFi from the Fifties & Sixties. A veritable walk down memory lane.
