I read the ebook version of this book and loved it! Jeff Inlo does it again! Set in the's a story of space scouts, space pirates, aliens, science, unexplored planets and galaxies, mining for precious gems, the "governments" of the future and just how much trouble the main character Rath Scampion can get into...and believe me, he gets into trouble! You don't know whether to hate the guy or root for him. Sometimes his scruples are less than desirable, but having to live the way he does ...more

Very creative premise and good mix of action, adventure, sci-fi and politics. However, it desperately needs an editor for all the typos, misspellings, capitalization and punctuation errors. They were abundant and very distracting. Ssome parts of the storyline were glossed over too quickly and would have benefited from having more development. In particular, I would have liked to meet more individual characters from Dr. Sinclair's council, rather than hearing only her voice throughout. Jack Lason ...more

I received this ebook free on Set sometime in the future, the plot revolves around a "government" group trying to prove there is alien life somewhere else in the universe. When they can't find the proof they want, they decide to create their own "alien" race and place it on an empty planet to thrive.

I loved the concept for this book. There are "pirates" who take over a planet, "government" cover-ups, and an explorer who gets caught between all this.

The story has great
Although the concept is interesting and the concept of the story is good, the delivery lacks credibility. The time flow is inconsistent and feels disjointed when switching back and forth between Dr. Sinclair and Rath. Dr. Sinclair's monologues feel contrived and like they are only included to explain the story. Rather than having actual conversations with other characters, she spews long monologues. The typos and grammar errors are distracting and should have been fixed with a good proofread and ...more

This is a nice science fiction book. Good storyline, a group of scientists fake (genetically make) the first alien life to get funding. One man gets stuck in the plot and tries to get out. I give it three stars. I liked it. Very little swearing, no sexual content. I can recommend for teens and up.
Good concept and plot, but lacks the polish of a more experienced writer. There were enough grammatical and spelling errors to distract me, but the storyline was engaging enough that I was willing to look past those.
The creation & study of the Fenrites bordered on interesting but it would have been nice to have more detail on it.
The rest I had to slog through.

Not the best book I've ever read. Jeff Inlo has definitely written better.
Mara Ismine
A wonderfully complicated story full of dark humour.

I was born in New Jersey and grew up in the town of Hillsborough. I spent about forty years of my life there. I married a wonderful person, Joan. None of my books would have ever been completed without her support, and I thank her for that. We currently have one dog named Jilly and we reside in Mount Laurel, NJ. As for my writing, I took a rather curious path. I originally studied the fields of Fi ...more
