Another treat.

Science Fiction books with a blend of emotions has always been my favorite reads and I'm elevated to list this series in my favorites category.

An excellently written, fast paced and literally breath-taking action scenes in between various plot twists, Greg Spry brings you his observations and perceptions of what the future would be like.

We get to encounter the struggles of Brooke and Maya. Maya is set to visit different worlds but she has to confront things never faced before. S

Another great book in this series! The character development, plot, conflict and attention to details was incredible. You can tell they did their research on the technical, scientific aspects. I like books that really make you use your imagination because of concepts you rarely think about. For example, the Penphins, how a race of intelligent beings can develop so differently than humans, how the gravity and brightness / luminance of their star caused completely different development. I'm sure I ...more

I reviewed Beyond Cloud Nine, the first book in the Beyond Saga, a couple of weeks ago, and had high praise for it. I’m happy to say that Greg Spry replicates, in Beyond the Horizon, what made the first book so successful without making it basically a clone of the second book. Even though the action focuses a lot on Maya Davis, Brooke still plays a large – pivotal, even – role in the story. Again, actions have consequences, politics are rife with intrigue, and the even though this book advances ...more

"Beyond the Horizon" felt like a much longer book than "Beyond Cloud Nine". Although there is plenty of action, some parts really dragged for me. I also found the characters to be a little bit hollow.
Despite that though, it's a good read (and the second book in a series always has a lot to live up to when you enjoyed the first!).

Got me right from the start. Well written and action packed. Sci-Fy not my thing but couldn't put this down.

Reading book 2 in anticipation of receiving book 3 as a Review Copy Giveaway. I obtained this ebook in anticipation of reading book 3. I am not a fan of ebooks. I think reading on a device provides me too much of a distraction. I sometimes find myself wandering off into the internet and away from my reading. That’s what “surfing the web” was all about in the first place. It may contribute to my tendency to not rate ebooks as high and my many times lack of focus on the book.

The story overall take

A well-written science fiction novel full of action and great characters. I haven't read the first book in the series but I picked this up anyway, I was a little confused at some parts but overall it was good and worth the read.
I would really recommend this book for those who love a good science fiction novel. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
Underground Book Reviews
For every breath-taking space battle or face to face brawl, there’s a puzzling plot twist, and Spry does a wonderful job of realising the mythos and politics of his unique vision of the future. The result is a space adventure young and old alike can get their teeth into, with great ideas, likeable heroes and a plot that doesn’t stand still.

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of Beyond the Horizon by Greg Spry, the second in his Beyond Saga. It is primarily the story of Maya, niece and adopted daughter to Brooke, the protagonist from Beyond Cloud Nine. Maya is not as flawed a character as Brooke, but has her own demons to battle once she learns the supposed truth of the death of her mother. Maya continues the family tradition of flight, not being a fighter pilot as was Brooke, but chosen to serve aboard the first inte ...more

Yet another great read

In the second book of this series, it continues the story of Brooke and her niece Maya. Once again we see Brooke placing everything on the line to save her niece. Maya is a new ensign aboard earth's first starship that will visit a new world. But there is big problems for her and his class mates. Read to see how they overcome some of the issues but find that they are still waiting for them back at home.
