well the cover is amazing can you imagine being strapped into one of those.what a ride thatd be.hes done it again in # 2 and i say its to bad its 5mos until #3.peter has been around a long time but i think hes finally got himself a big one here. but i likedded space also both in book and on tv.this would make a GREAT screen epic.if your a marine or a marine fan youve got to read this book.the characters draw you in and make you part of there lifes you get angry,sad etc as they do and when one gets wasted you get downright pissed off against the programmers and the creator.but the superior human brain is to much and they find were not that easy to control.especially a marines brain.they say an e.k.g. of a marine doesnt come across as normal anyway and thats in a human body.what chance do drones have.with sarge in with them its gonna be booty kicking time big time.its one of the few books i simply cant put down once i start and when not reading it im thinking about it.so i give a WARNING i say again a WARNING if your not ready for an intense trip that WONT let you go and WILL hook you like the most potent drug out DO NOT i say DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK RUN AWAY REALLY FAST.seconds only are all it takes and you WILL join the rest of us as watchers of the next release day.if you cannot take the strain of intense adrealine rush or are prone to high blood pressure or anxiety please see your doctor before you attempt to start this book.after will be to late it will have you then you WILL be a FAN. have fun enjoy GOD bless,joe marine semper-fi

Peter began this epic with Descent. Well, here's the second of the trilogy to come! New characters and shifting character motives keep you guessing at what Dravis is really up to, what he wants, and why the aliens want to take over the Sol System.
Telep's writing is even better than in the previous book, though the editing still didn't come through. I would LOVE to see this in a movie format.
Telep has inspired me in my own writing ventures to not only write what I know, but to do it well. To the Descent community, Mr. Telep, you are a hero.

After actually flying a Pyro-GX for 3+ years in these infested mines I can state with authority that Peter Telep does an exceptional job relaying the challenges I face as a PTMC contractor. His description of the Robot vermin I (and the rest of the Descent Rangers) encounter (and eradicate) is accurate, especially when describing the intelligence that these machines possess. If you have not experienced the unique and challenging futuristic world of Descent, I would like to strongly suggest that you pick up a copy of Telep's book, and also visit Interplay.com to find out how you can obtain your very own Pyro-GX spacecraft. If you want to actually experience the space fiction yourself, this is the way to do it. Hopefully there will be a movie made about Descent. -Swazook (from the Descent Rangers)

For the past few years I've commonly associated Telep with fantasy thanks in part to his great Squire trilogy. This book was recently suggested for my reading pleasure. I must admit that I was skeptic at first that it would be as good as his other books. Also note that I hadn't read the first book of the Descent series so I was unfamiliar with the current plot and relationship between the characters. However, after reading the first few chapters I couldn't set the book down! I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who appreciates science fiction of any degree. I know that I'll be looking forward to October when the next book comes out!
