Existential: A Sci-fi Horror Thriller is about a team of military contractors going deep into Alaska to find a missing arculogical team. What they find is more than they expected and must fight to survive and keep the human race alive. The characters are real for the story making it entertaining and enjoyable. Formatting and editing is fine from what I can see, so there is no issue there. The cover, I like the cover very much and I find that is goes well with the story. The story is military based making the cover ideal. I did not find anything I disliked about this book. I am a Sci-fi fan and it did not disappoint. The story kept my gounding on what the characters are doing, what their purpose is and how they help to further along the story. Being that this book is a sci-fi fictional story, yes it is unrealistic and would not think otherwise. It would be for a more for older readers rather than younger readers (i.e. children). I would recommend it for a reader that is a fan of sci-fi or military fiction stories or even both. I would even suggest it to someone that is looking for something new to read.

Semper Fidelis Existential: The Mission - To Survive by Ryan W. Aslesen, a former Marine and brother, is a neat sci-fi thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I didn't read "About the Author" before starting this book, so I did not realize that the author was a Marine until I began reading about the character Max Ahlgren and his KA-BAR performing silent sentry tactics and his use of his hardcore dialogue. For me, this well-diversified story seemed very familiar, yet it still held surprises for me as the very colorful cast members went on multiple different journies. One minute I'm reading about mercenaries "smoking" feeble Mexican cartel and then the story morphs into a crashed alien spacecraft in Alaska. Because of the plot's complexity, I was continually surprised and entertained. I enjoyed the author's crisp, precise writing style as it made this story very easy to follow and digest. It's quite apparent Existential was extremely hard to write, and I admire the author's intestinal fortitude. The result for me was beautiful synchronicity throughout the journey. I appreciate the stringent proof and editing work that was applied to this clever story; it becomes quite obvious as the story unfolds. I would be remiss if I did not also mention the awesome cover art, as it represents the contents well and enhances the pages within. Contrary to the statement, "Don't judge a book by its cover." this book is the exception. I immediately judged this book by its cover and as I anticipated a compelling cover, a compelling book. I wait with great patience for the next highly lethal adventures of Max Ahlgren, a Marine's Marine.
