I was so excited when I stumbled across Zero-G: Green Space by William Shatner. I have been a huge Star Trek fan since I was six years old and was instantaneously curious about this book coauthored by William Shatner. After reading a couple of chapters I found myself a little surprised at the complexity of the plot line. This book is definitely for fans of hard science fiction. After googling some things here and there though, I was able to keep up. I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, Samue ...more

This is book two in the Zero G series and the book does a good job in bringing you up to speed with the events of the first book and who the main characters are without compromising on the pace of the book .Director Samuel Lord is the head of the FBI's Zero G unit based on the space station Empyrean. He is charged with investigating terrorism, corruption and espionage in space ,whilst also keeping an eye on the Chinese space station Jade Star, and The Red Giant (the former international space st ...more

I received an Advanced Reader Copy in return for an honest review.

I loved the first book in the series and was so excited when I saw that the second one was coming out. I was a bit disappointed.

The recap of the first book was clunky, and this book really hits the reader over the head with the gender politics. It was so much it was very off-putting, and I agree with the author's stance.

Putting those aside, it was as much of adventure as the first and an enjoyable read.

Well written and overall an enjoyable book. However, there's not so much a plot as an idea to kick it off after which the characters lurch from crisis to crisis until the final resolution. Still, glad I hung in until the end. ...more

FBI Director Samuel Lord is back, this time working with NASA to uncover the mole sabotaging some top-secret NASA projects aboard the Empyrean. But there's an additional problem - some self-replicating nanites are proving volatile on-board and attempts to eradicate them are ineffective.

Octogenarian Sam Lord is given these outer reaches assignments by the FBI home office, and he and his team are thorough, dedicated, and completely committed to d

This is a full-bore, full-bodied SciFi Technothriller with solid character development and a clear understanding of the Cold War and present political climate. At its heart is the debate on the dangers of AI--artificial intelligence--and the potential directions of evolution. A different approach from, say, Kubrick's "2001 A Space Odyssey," much the same concerns are expressed as those posited by Asimov's First Law of Robotics. Book 2 continues from Book 1 but also stands alone, with a better d ...more

I received this book free from Netgalley and Simon & Schuster for a fair and honest review. Thank you!!

I enjoyed this second Zero G novel a lot more than the first one. The story was interesting and the characters felt a bit more fleshed out. Adsila Waters returns with a bit more story here but again I feel that her segment could have been edited out and the book would have been enjoyable. But I like the Adsila character so I’m glad that she’s in there. Again much better than the first book. If

The second book in a fabulous new series!!! This story is even better than the first book. While the first book handled the characterization and the setting plus a great adventure, book#2 continues on the dangerous and life-threatening pursuits of a career in space exploration. The science in these books is up to the minute science fact and the stories are excellent. I will gladly read many more in this series!!!

Wow!!! What an outstanding sequel. For those who love hard science this book has it in spades. A truly awesome, original story taking place at breath-taking speed. Very thought-provoking. I absolutely loved it. And I can't wait for the next one in the series.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review.

The sequel of The Samuel Lord Series is just and interesting as the first book was.

This time the problem is with a vine, that was suppose to grow slow and steady, but all of a sudden it starts to grow through walls and feeds on organic matter. Something has gone wrong somewhere and Lord's team must find a way to go around NASA, to find the culprit and also stop the vine, before it destroys the space station.

In first book Lord goes to moon and to Chinese's space station, and this time his invest

Wow! This book is jam packed full of science jargon and situations. I was a little lost in the beginning and I think that had something to do with my lack of world knowledge. I should have probably read the first book. With that being said, the story was interesting and unique. The story line moved along at a quick pace and the characters were well written and had depth. This was a good scifi read and I think I'll go back and read the first book. ...more
