Heliopause by J. Dianne Dotson is the next book up in my self-published marathon and not only has it been a nice break from my fantasy-strict reading diet, but it's always amazing to discover strikingly talented storytellers. While this story is sci-fi at its core, it’s also an alluring mystery that keeps you on your toes while nothing is as it seems. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am so glad it was recommended to me.

At the edge of interstellar space, strange occurrences descend upon the usu

An exciting read in the science fiction genre. I especially liked the tension building to the climax of the story. Also the insight into the characters’ emotions as circumstances changed and the use of strong female characters. Don’t want to spoil the plot but you can see the potential for a sequel.

What a fun read! Heliopause tells the story of a space station at the edge of the galaxy. It's stuffed full of the mainstays of science fiction including telepaths, aliens, dangerous (and sexy) AI's and a lot of great action. The writing is fluid and fast paced. The characters are well drawn and, despite being a large cast, very memorable. An enjoyable story that hints at a much larger adventure to come. I'll be reading!

The blurb for this novel reads "Flashes of light. An unseen menace. Messages from the void. Secrets at the edge of the solar system that threaten to destroy the future."

What it doesn't tell you is that when you start reading it, you get pulled back into the Golden Age of Science Fiction or into an episode of Star Trek (The Original Series). This books has the feel of one of those Asimov, Clarke, or Heinlein books. The technology employed isn't Golden Age, but the entire feel of the book is. It w

Set at the fringes of our solar system, Heliopause tells the unlikely story of a hero who feels like anything but. He's just a guy who want to help where help is needed. This book is very well paced and the characters seem very well represented and thought out. Great Science-Fiction with equal parts of each. Oh, and that whole human thing that gets in the way. Looking forward to the sequel to this one!

This book had an exciting plot and an intriguing cast of characters. It was unique and worth a read. Personally I had a problem with the double spacing between paragraphs which took away a bit from the reading experience for me and at times I had trouble connecting to the cast since things moved very quickly. Overall though it was a lovely story and fans of sci-fi should check it out.
