The Object: Book One (Object Series) by Winston Emerson

I really enjoyed this novel although I'm not that attached the the horror mayhem type of stories like this. This draws some similarities to H.G. Wells War of the Worlds, which again is a good novel just not my favorite. This novel takes place in Louisville instead of England and also has some similarities to the novel series The Beginning of the End by Michael Edward.

Winston Emerson creates some strong and believable characters and the writi

"The Object: Book One" -- I shoulda known better: it says "Book One" plainly in the title, but I foolishly thought there'd still be some kind of wrap-up before it ended and the next one started. The Object is an enormous spaceship-looking thing that suddenly parks itself over Louisville. (Louisville?!?)

Nearly all of the horror in this book is the man's-inhumanity-to-man type. There are a few characters (OK, three) that we do want to know and protect, but most are either inherently bad (or even j

Set firmly in a Louisville that is so rich with gritty texture and detail that it almost threatens as an antagonist itself, author Winston Emerson assembles a colorful cast of eclectic characters, each one struggling in their own way against the grind of day to day life. But, things can get worse. Oh how things are most definitely going to get a lot worse...when a great, mysterious sphere--The Object--appears without warning in the afternoon sky.

This book is a finger blister-inducing page turner

What an intricate tale woven here for us. Are they aliens? Are they peaceful? Will we all die? In a Stephen King-esqe world, the author intertwines the story of several people, pulling them together at the end. But, as with any good serial, the end is leaving us screaming NO!!! Where's the rest?! I'm definitely hooked and a new fan of The Object!

Now, why, if i loved it so much, is it only 4 stars? Some points left me slightly confused, or didn't make sense. But there are literally one/two. This

Well, I've finished as much as possible. I wish there were more, but I'm unable to find any continuation of this story. It is amazing! Fantastic, brilliant, edgy sci-fi with great characters that I really grew to care about, and a fascinating alien 'first contact' kind of thing going on. I really, really wish there were more.

Wow! This book baffled me for at least the first half. I didn't know what was happening but the author has written it to the extent that you can't put it down, you need to know! Looking forward to book 2

Interesting, but I'm not happy this book is part of a series. Aliens? OK. spaceships and government? OK. Panic and murder, death and destruction? OK. Series?
