Ace star fighter pilot Brooke Davis lives for pushing hundreds of gees in orbital combat, but she’d give it all up in a moment to become the first human to fly faster than light. When Brooke stumbles upon a conspiracy involving terrorists, aliens, and the highest levels of government, she finds their goals seductive but their methods abhorrent. With the moral core of human civilization hanging in the balance, she must risk her shot at history, her family, and her life to prevent the schemers from forcing their nefarious brand of salvation upon the solar system.
MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
For all Star Wars Fans, Beyond Cloud Nine is the first an exciting new series , that will certainly be made into a movie series. The setting begins at the fictional time of 2247 CE. A young woman is among the top fighter pilots of the United Nations run by a council. However, Brook has an attitude, is driven by guilt, and will not be content until she is Number 1!
Brooke's twin sister living in Chicago, has her own agenda. Although her attitude is much better, she is equally driven to be the best Reporter.
After a breach of ethics and conduct, Brooke finds herself at the mercy of her twin, after years of no correspondence.
The twins find themselves caught up in what they thought was the fulfillment of their individual dreams, but is it really as it seems
How can there be a futuristic space story without an endearing computer? "BOB" fills that role very well.
The author has created a captivating new view into possibilities of the future. His views have merit. The characters are believable, well-defined and the scenes portrayed quite well. Although there must be credible background imagery, I feel too much information was given, making it slightly difficult for the average individual to understand. However, it would be valuable in creating a movie for it. Some scene descriptions were somewhat difficult to visualize.
The Book Title is very "catchy" and, both,the Title and Book Cover are eye-catching.
Notr: This reviewer enjoys Science Fiction, but is not a Star Wars Fan.
*Parental concern: Innuendos are made in two places that may be offensive to those believing in a Supreme being. It also questions the validity of "Faith".
I offer a rating of Four Stars
^This book was gifted me with no requirement of a positive review.
Greg Spry was cloned in the year between the releases of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Coincidence? He majored in industrial engineering at the University of Wisconsin—Madison before earning a graduate degree in space systems from the Florida Institute of Technology. When he’s not writing the next epic science fiction adventure, he enjoys sampling tasty microbrews, eating hot wings, and cheering on the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers.
