Book Description

Forbidden The Stars (The Interstellar Age Book 1)

At the end of the 21st century, a catastrophic accident
in the asteroid belt has left two surveyors dead.
There is no trace of their young son,
Alex Manez, or of the asteroid itself.

On the outer edge of the solar system,
the first manned mission to Pluto,
led by the youngest female astronaut in
NASA history, has led to an historic discovery:
there is a marker left there by an alien race
for humankind to find. We are not alone!

While studying the alien marker, it begins to react.
Four hours later, the missing asteroid appears
in a Plutonian orbit, along with young Alex Manez,
who has developed some alarming side-effects from his
exposure to the kinetic element they call Kinemet.

From the depths of a criminal empire based on Luna,
an expatriate seizes the opportunity to wrest control
of outer space, and takes swift action.

The secret to faster-than-light speed is up for grabs,
and the race for interstellar space begins!

5.0 out of 5 stars In the style of Robert Heinlein 29 Nov. 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed the book and felt that it was written in a 'Robert Heinlein' style - the characters, reasonably easy going storyline and the setting (The Moon is a Harsh Mistress/Podkayne of Mars/Have Spacesuit Will Travel).
Well worth the read and interesting (even if the idea of an element far heavier than current known elements (114) is a little hard to believe).
For Kindle readers - few if any typos and will allow Text to Voice.

I downloaded this as it was either free of very low price and I have run out of books on the "Rivers of London" series. On some of the review sites the pseuds have had a go a go at the science in the book, but I look more at the second word - fiction.

The basic story is well thought out and any possible plot holes and pages of waffle are filled with news report style mini-paragraphs. All in all a good read and I downloaded for minimal cost the other two books in the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inventive 6 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Personally I liked the book, deep down I wish it was possible to travel to the stars, but that seems pretty unlikely, so I make do with imaginative and fantastical tales of going into the big black.
The tale is thoughtful and I'm no astrophysicist but the concepts about light speed travel are at least plausible. I'm pretty certain I will buy the next book, unless I travel to the stars before then...

I do like this story. Good writing and plot development. Can't wait to see what happens next! Has a good balance between action and technical science fiction.

An interesting story with sufficient twists and pace to keep the story flowing. Only disappointment was the ending which seems rushed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forbidden 23 Feb. 2014
By MudWump
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I was not too sure of this story, it was a slow start to the story. Usually I will stop reading if it is a slow start, but something was there to read more of it.

I am glad that I did. It turned into an amazing space tale, yes for some people there is some technical information, but if you are willing to read past that, it will be a great story.

To the author, please do not let it go for the movie rights. It will never be as good as the movie that I watched in my mind !
