Recommends it for: Fans of sci fi, aliens, contemporary settings
A good, well-researched sci fi.

The story opens with Ernie, an undermotivated guy whose twin outshines him. Growing up, Ernie experienced vivid dreams of space, a tomb in Egypt, and a multi-faceted glowing crystal. Now, when he and his brother get the opportunity to resume the exploration of a tomb their parents were forced to abandon before they were born, they jump on it, but Ernie begins to suspect he's been there before.

I found this to be an interesting book, with a good mix of real and ficti

The Zondon by Robby Charters

This was an interesting read unfortunately I can see that it might easily be one that is quite easily discarded before being finished. Overall I think it was well plotted out storyline with interesting features. I read it all the way through but I swear that it took me a very long time to digest the first two pages of chapter one and I'm not sure exactly why other than that the style of writing and sometimes oddly structured sentences were distracting not to mention t

I have to confess from the outset that sci-fi is not a genre that I would read by choice. I received a copy of this book on the understanding that it fell into the genre of Mystery Thrillers. It doesn’t … and that obviously makes it difficult for me to review the book and judge it honestly. My prejudices are bound to obtrude.

However, I will do my best to be objective and try to deal with specific writing issues … the author’s ability to plot a story, to hold the reader’s interest, to write well,

THE ZOUDON by Robby Charters is an ambitiously offbeat novel I must have been in the right mood for, because while billed as sci fi or thriller, it is part fantasy, part exploration of the universe, daubs of man's essential nature, and a tour of theocracy rich with potential insights that will leave you pondering.
It's fun. It's quirky. The locales are numerous and vivid. It has a terrifically rendered villain.
The story concerns aliens born of earth mothers who have twins off-world, and a vital

This is the most remarkable story I have ever read. It is refreshing and completely new in concept and legend. It is full of details that will capture your imagination to the very end. The details of the worlds created in this story are unique and beautiful. More so the great plot and eloquent way that it was portrayed.
It has so much background on each of the main characters that it could be a story of their own. I also loved the way that the author knew so much about the places the characters v
