Book Description

When the six-mile long Isisian Crystal Galaxy ship, Anu-Bis, enters the Sol System with the express purpose of initiating first contact with Earth, a chain of events unravels, forever changing Earth and David Bolseen. It all begins with David resigning his position with the U.S. delegation to the United Nations, and his subsequent vacation to California where he meets Tulip Rose, a beautiful young woman who will become the love of his life, and he of hers. They are invited aboard Anu-Bis by the Senior Fleet Admiral and, from there, things only get more complicated for David, Tulip and Earth. Numerous tumultuous events arise from man’s first contact with the very advanced and unusual Isisians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Read..thoroughly enjoyed it 14 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this Kindle book when it was in the top100 free Sci-Fi book list. As soon as I started reading it I knew it was a higher standard of writing and standard of free Sci-Fi's(yes I am a tight wad but you do find real gems like this one). Aliens have been watching us for generations.Now it is the time to make themselves known. An interesting first contact story with a comic twist. Full of great ideas and thought provoking ideas. I was a little disappointed with the last chapter but not enough to ruin the book. It might sound stupid in the context of a Sci-Fi but I cannot believe what the aliens did(or didn't do) as the ships were returning to Earth. I do hope the author has more than one book. I would love to read a sequel to this.

Technical Note: Well edited...only spotted one incorrect far as I remember it was a "they" instead of a "their".

4.0 out of 5 stars A new take on first contact 23 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So many books have been written about the first contact between earth and alien races and usually come down to a battle or being aided by the aliens. This book explores what would happen if a very advanced race just came to say hello and then leave. It is a light-hearted book and suitable for all ages however I am not sure there is enough substance to sustain the 817 pages. I liked the writing style which varied from being immersed in the story to being told a story for example "we must leave them now and leave the events to the readers imagination". In the story it all seemed to be too easy with the aliens (the Isisian) being just too good and I was expecting a dark side to emerge as there were odd asides when mention was made of the Isisians destroying whole civilisations. Just to add to the mix and retain interest there were about 5 pages scattered throughout the book where the "chosen one" was mentioned as someone obviously up to no good. There is also a romance actually two throughout the book and although this added to the plot I wish the author (who incidentally has the same name as the main character) had made less use of the word "sweetie".
I also liked the way the Isisian space ships and technology were described without being overwhelmed by scientific mumbo jumbo.
In the end it is a book with a message that although appropriate I doubt if anyone will heed.
In summary an interesting and thought provoking book.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent story 3 Jun. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book. An excellent first contact SF story full of imagination and which, though serious, is unafraid to stud itself with hilarious comedy episides. Also, the characterisation was very good. My only criticism is that is padded out too much in part and has a few confusing minor discontinuities in a plot that is otherwise first class. Were it not for these qualifications, which could be removed by editing, I would have given it five stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 18 Jun. 2012
By Derek, Toronto - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The sci-fi portion of this book is very good and makes for an interesting read.

The love story I found got more ridiculous as the pages went on. The need to express their love for one another every couple of pages does not add to the book. This was just so repetitive it became very annoying. It gets worse the further into the novel you get. I found myself just flipping the pages to find a way back to the storyline.

The ending was a major disappointment. I found the ending rushed, inconclusive and half-baked. Hard to believe after 800+ pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new classic 21 April 2012
By Anigel - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Anu-Bis is a Sci-Fi story with something for everyone. From the space faring, high technology, action, intrigue and even includes mention of "The Greys" and the genres infatuation with anal probing, through to a touch of romance and a whole host of lovable characters that you cannot help becoming attached to. This book took me on an emotional roller-coaster with many laughs, a few tears.

The author has built a wonderful culture and lore with the Isisian people and their wonderful Oarcana and Vortakai. There is enough technology and science to make all fans of the genre happy. Whilst not so much that the story is lost to just long descriptions of technology.

I hope we get to meet with the Isisians again soon, as there is great potential for more tales from this world.

I would have to put this book up there with other Sci-Fi books the likes of Clarke's Rama series, Bear's Thistledown, Scott Cards Ender Saga and for the culture and character development, alongside Feist's Midkemia books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, fun to read. 28 May 2013
By ErickThor - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book, it was very smartly written. I have to agree with some of the other comments, the Love Story even though cool, got too ridiculous at times, it was too much; its not like the kind of love (childish by the way)would transform the lives of the Isisians, their very own love stories where better and more significant, but in any case, I loved the book and recommend it to everybody.

I would love to see it in a movie.

Thanks a lot Bolseen (if you are still around Earth to read this comment :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hungry for More ANU-BIS and Isisian Adventures 17 May 2013
By Wu Wei (Maggi Lunde) - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful first contact book, and one that departs from the usual ideas. The political chaos that develops after knowledge of Anu-bis's arrival was all to real. The description of the advanced technologies were nicely balanced by the story line and left me wanting more detailed technical information. The idea of "back-up" copies and personal protection against attack, both from within and without, were thought provoking. My only regret is that there is no second book to read, and I am left wanting more of the ANU-BIS and Isisian adventures story.

4.0 out of 5 stars great 17 Jan. 2013
By Kimberly Marshall - Published on

This is how first contact should be. This author did a great job telling his story. I found it interesting and did feel like I was overwhelmed by the author trying to explain things so much that I wished it would end.
