Enemy activity had fallen into an eerie calm, but everyone felt the coming storm--a terrible storm, poised to unleash its fury upon the galaxy. It seemed as though the entire universe was holding its breath. Waiting. Whether waiting for the salvation of mankind or its demise was yet unclear.

This book is in my "Unable to finish" shelf. Why? Let me explain.

***Spoiler Alert***
The following section may, if read, remove part of the joy of reading the book. But if you have seen certain SciFi shows this will already have been done.

The plot is slammed in your face at the start. Nick is trying to get home and leaves the ship he is on in order to do so. Then the other whips us back to before that scene with Nick, an inventor who developed a device to create wormholes, gets sucked into one w

I absolutely loved this story. I really like scifi stories that throw little old humans into the universe, only for them to realise they are not alone, and are also the equivalent of technology cavemen compared to the aliens they meet, except for one single technological advantage that they have recently stumbled upon that no other alien race has thought of yet. After running straight into a hornets nest, the main character needs to make an escape from a powerful enemy that wants his tech, with ...more

Suspiciously like the TV show Fanshawe... But fun. If you liked Fanshawe you will like this one.

The crew goes from one disjointed story plot to the next. It was like Donald crammed in every TV scripted, he could get his hands on, into this book. Smoke monsters, pirates, two warring races, two different spy plots, ton of other races, time travel, and some means of transport that is faster than light, but not Hyperspace.

I finished the book, but just barely.

Great read

Well written story about hyperspace travel at the beginning of its discovery by a human. He meets several interesting aliens and they share many adventures.

Nicely done. This throws back to ‘50 style space dramas. Action. Adventure. Romance. With lots of opportunity to root for the good guys.

I haven't read a true science fiction adventure story in a long time. The start of a new series, Book 1 : Awakenings does not disappoint. It has all the elements I desire in a good space adventure story - a reluctant hero fumbling his/her way through new alien space, interesting and unique aliens, exciting twists and turns, a good overall plot and a whole lot of fun.

When Nick, the main character, is introd

Story OK enough, only brought nothing new to the Sci-Fi world, full of every possible cliche. Not at all memorable. I have the audio book version and the reader kept calling the main female lead "Area" while in the story Nick (main male character) tells her that her name means a type of song in Opera, so surely that should be "Aria" maybe just the readers mistake, if a mistake at all.

I really grew up on the Space Coast of Florida where I watched my fair share of rocket launches and built my shar
