Great science fiction
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to the author’s next offering. Rogue AI, alternate history, genetic engineering, deep space travel, aliens, conspiracy, intrigue, and worm holes.
Something for everyone from the hard science fiction fans to those who love exposition and immersive, extensive world building. I will likely have to read it a second time before I’ve caught everything there is to the author’s universe and I like that in a story.

Spatial possibilities and a fascinating story

Indian author Rashid Ahmed springs onto the literary stage with this debut novel that is so strong that it defies the classification of a first published effort. He is a digital marketing specialist and finds his passion in the evolution and the impact of technology – a fine foundation for his science fiction novel introduction. On his website Rashid sates, ‘I’m actively interested in decentralized economies, perma culture, and solutions for global ’w

Fremandi Alliance is a tough book. There is a good story in there, one about the first encounter with an alien race, a neighboring galaxy slowly being consumed by our own, and a secret organization out for the good of the world, which is a nice change of pace.
My problems with this book aren't in the story itself, but in the way that's it told. And told is exactly the word. This book is the epitome of "telling" not "showing". Every character sounds the same and we are told the reasons behind thin

Framandi Alliance is a far-reaching epic that tells the story of humankind’s struggle to make a place in the community of sentient races, and also to rise above our worst impulses. It is a complex story, with a lot of individual stories embedded. There is alien tech, (reverse engineered by the humans) enhanced humans and more.

A word of advice: Too much of it is high-level narrative, without giving the ground-level story of the people involved. If all these were fleshed out, it could easily be a

I make it a point never to read other reviews until I’ve finished the book, then it’s fun to see how we compare. Seeing the glowing five stars reviews of this one I actually had to check and make sure we were talking about the same book. Hmmm, we were...

To me the ‘Framandi Alliance: Galaxy Accretion Conflicts’ reads more like a college thesis than a novel. Even the title is unwieldy and rather pretentious. ‘Accretion’ means accumulation, so it’s Galaxy Accumulation Conflicts then? What does that

A modern sci-fi ride you will never forget

This book really is a superbly paced action-packed sci-fi story, one you will remember for ever. The substance kept me gripped, via the use of science and technology - that you could easily see being used soon, or one could speculate are already being used today! Subjects such as biological, trans-human, molecular, astrophysical, AI, quantum computing are all included. It is vividly apparent the author extensively carried out his research on these subjec

A compelling space adventure story.
The world of this book is so extensive, the characters are enthralling and the story is simply soul-gripping.

I was so excited when I open the first paragraph of this pretty book in it. Rashid gave an opportunity to look into such a probable and seems near future. First, we plunge into the past of mankind to make sure that scientific development in the future depends on what we are doing now. Quantum Computing AI, Transhuman research, molecular manufacturing

Rashid Ahmed is a compelling new voice within science fiction adventure. The Framandi Alliance is a wonderful first insight into the mind of this emerging author. The characters are well developed and fleshed out to make the action believable but also importantly so the reader can engage with them. There is a fantastical element to the storyline and yet it also feels quite plausible and somewhat frightening. Well written and enjoyable to read. Hopefully the start of a long line of books in a sim ...more
