Overview

The Clones of Mawcett by Thomas DePrima

While digging through the ruins of a long dead civilization on the planet Mawcett, a team of Terran and Nordakian archeologists find an underground tunnel leading to a door in such extraordinary condition that it could have been fabricated as recently as that morning. They labor throughout the day, using every modern device available to them, but are unable to gain entry.

Then, in the early hours of the new day, seemingly in response to the screams of a frustrated, over-tired scientist, the door slides noiselessly open. Upon passing through the entranceway, the archeologists are stunned to find an elaborate complex in pristine condition. Summoning the courage to venture further, they enter a large circular chamber lined with strange electronic equipment, and immediately become engrossed in examining strange symbols etched into the floor near the center of the room. Suddenly, they're bathed in a strange light that paralyzes them where they stand. They watch in frozen terror as a clear, circular wall rises up around them. When the enclosed area begins to fill with a dense ocher gas smelling of persimmons, the dig site laborers, who had witnessed the activity from the periphery, run screaming for the entrance.

I read volumes I and II and looked forward to seeing what Jenetta would get herself into (and out of) this time. I thought this 3rd installment was up to the other 2. I don't get the cats. It seemed a bit unrealistic to me. (But then we all know jenetta would have been killed in the first chapter of the first book in real life). This is escape literature, so I guess anything goes. Oh, also, aren't the Raiders broke by now?

Book 3 in a continuing saga fleshes out the main character and adds even more spice to the action. I started reading this series three days ago and have had to read each one in a single sitting per book. Now onto book 4! I can't wait to get started!

A fantasic series! Their are books and then . . their are stories. This is one of them. One can read copious amounts of this genra yet a few really stand out. Oh, they are clever with a ton of tec, heros etc. Read this guy! He's very good. I have been absorbed in sf for over fifty years. I have read more than a few. It has been a wonderful experience! Thank you and your contemporaries for the dreams! P.S. Cant spel. Ha, ha!

This series has everything one could ever want in good sci-fi.  Hope that we will somehow break the light barrier, Fast action and believable characters.  Reading this book caused me to go out and purchase the first two in the series, and they were just as good as this one.  Deprima is a skilled writer and does his homework.  Bravo!

OK...I am going to try not to read the next installment of this series, but I don't know if I can resist. So much of these first three have so many unlikely scenarios that I don't think I can take it any longer. They have been great fun and I would like to thank the author for taking 20 or 30 hours of my life to indulge in a complete excape from anything that approaches possible reality.
