Austin is one of my favorite authors to work with, and if I have been impressed by anything, it's his incredible imagination and work ethic.

This is a blend of biography and alarm. Written from his own experience as a Navy pilot, nuclear weapons officer, and spacecraft engineer, the plot will suck you in.

Is this sci-fi? No. Hit you over the head Christian stuff? No to that, either. But it will make you think and you'll probably lose sleep, too. If the prospect of life on Mars threatening a NASA
John Wells was called by God to make a difference in the world by becoming an astronaut. While he is serving on the space station in 2011 the U.S. comes under a terrorist attack, a famous speaker predicts a visit from aliens, and a 28-year-old NASA lander is suddenly broadcasting again from Mars. Who is behind the attack? Why is the Viking 1's signal back online? Very captivating make-you-think story. Have the sequel handy when you finish!
I thought this book was extremely well-written, believable, and entertaining. I don't usually read books like this, but I was really drawn in from the beginning. I think Austin Boyd did a great job of portraying his characters as real, believable, and didn't portray all Christians as perfect and all non-Christians as bad people. He portrayed Christ without being too pushy. I am excited to read the other books in the series!
The first book in the trilogy - took me a while to get into it, but once I did - whoa! The book took off - a mixture of sci-fi and suspense: humans first trip to Mars. Are we really alone in the universe or are there other beings out there?
A novel about an overtly Christian astronaut and his personal struggles amid terrorism and possible alien contact. Poorly done science. Amateurish writing. But, I hear there's two sequels. No thanks.

Very good book with a good mix of science fiction, reality and Bible. Very believable, not too weird. Plan on reading the series, though, as the first book doesn't really end.
A bit slow to get off the ground, but overall a good read. Interesting premise.
