Must EVERY character in this story be superhumanly attractive, smart and rich? Must there be a phrase like "they would meet again fifteen years later, but they didn't know that yet" on every page? And it's OK to have two storylines in one book, but they have to connect somewhere along the line!

Good page turning thriller, that leaves you with a cliffhanger ending.

Be warned, there is the typical male gaze when dealing with the solo (of course) female in the story. But her character is awesome.

Really enjoyed the book right up until the last page where I realized the author had written the book and then cut it in half so I'd buy the second half. Talk about a cliff hanger!

There are two seemingly unrelated as of yet stories in the book. The first involves what appears to be a hole in the earth's magnetosphere that causes anyone in it (or anything) to be microwaved, burned, severely damaged by solar radiation that gets through now that the magnetosphere isn't doing it's Van Allen best to

I just finished this book a few moments ago. I normally let a book settle a couple of days before writing any type of review, but I figured I should just write this now and I can always edit it later.

This book was recommended to me by my brother who said I would like it, (we like similar books). I started reading it about a month ago, but couldn't really get into it. I could never get used to the drastic time changes between chapters, some being 500+ years. So, I set the book aside for about a

The story was enjoyable, but I don't think it works very well as a standalone book, as it doesn't even begin to resolve many issues; it read more like the first section of a longer book. However, the author tends to put in too much back-story, whose only purpose I could discern was to adulate a character for the superlative aspects of their personality (e.g., intelligence, beauty, manipulation) under the thin veneer of explaining one of their actions. Overall, I think my opinion may vary dependi ...more

This is the kind of book that gives self-publishing a bad name, but at the same time says, if this guy can publish a series of books, so can I.

If you think I'm being mean, download it for free and check yourself. But don't spend money on it. You'll be sorry you spent time on it.

Seriously needed an editor to cut through some of the prose. Terrible dialogue and metaphorical descriptions. Could not finish the book.

A lot of technology in a small package, it's a series and there is many more to come. The author is a scientist, inventor, and has a way of adding the current tech into his book. Interesting writing style. For a weekend free reading, it wasn't bad. I might send the $3 for the next addition. By no-means a Hemingway, Shakespeare, or Jim Butucher, but fun to read.

Could not finish the book, some concepts were intriguing but the monotony reading about how awesome every main character is, the repetition of statements, names, descriptions, over and over just becomes insulting at a point, ya I get it, now get to the point.

Don't recommend this book to anyone.

I have three favorite fictional characters:

Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files
Aloysius Pendergast from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's Relic series
Jay-L Farnsworth from this, The Ancients of Earth Series

Loved the premise of this book, but HATED how the author went off on childish political rants, having tantrums for whole chapters and sexually objectifying his main female character at every turn. It ruined the entire book for me and I'll never read another thing this author writes ever again.

I enjoyed the book and look forward to the next book. I would have given four stars but his political views were a real turn off for the book. Fortunately that didn't come until the end of the book. It ends on a cliffhanger so you have to read the next book.

Takes a bit to get into, but is worth it. The story is fantastic but the writing stlye in the beginning is a bit off.
