Product Description

Product Description

An unknown object (UNOB) is approaching Earth. Coming in dark and silent, the object is code named “Silent Star” and the decision is made to intercept the object before it reaches Earth. Captain Linkletter (“Link”) and his team are sent on an intercept course with orders to dock, enter, and assess the threat of the UNOB, and if necessary, destroy it. Link succeeds in entering the UNOB to find it anything but empty. As Link and his team explore the UNOB, it comes to life and Link discovers that Earth’s survival depends on the decisions he makes and bravery of his team.

No real story just crisis after crisis that does not seem to be leading anywhere. Became so exacerbating I gave up. Just not my style I guess.

2.0 out of 5 stars Military Sci-Fi for 13 year olds by 13 year old 21 May 2014
By Azaqui - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An uknown object approaches Earth, and US of A decides to investigate, sending a military team.

The writing is truly horrible, made me feel like I was reading an essay written by a teenager - and not one of those that were later praised to be young geniuses of writing, either.

The entire book consists of extremely crude one-line sentences, most of them beginning with the protagonist's name; "Link did this", "Link did that" - at nauseam. Author is not even trying to vary this by using "he" instead.

There are great books, that are both good stories and well written. Majority of decent SF falls into good stories but poorly written bucket.
This, sadly, is a cliche and naive story extremely poorly written.

Why I am giving two stars then?

One reason: rodents! (no spoilers)

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Us versus Them 13 Mar 2014

This is my first book I've read from James Foster. This is a very good read, so I'll be looking at his other books. Foster's style is fast and smooth sprinkled with a good dose of humor. Unfortunately, I blew through this in a day, which only made me wish it was longer. This was a fun story about first contact. It picks you up right at the beginning and takes you full speed to a satisfying conclusion that is wide open for a sequel.
4.0 out of 5 stars Dam Good Work!! 20 Aug 2014

Excellent work overall. This is good entertainment. I liked the characters. The science may not be perfect but it does not hurt the story at all. I could have done without as much of the story dealing with earth politics. You know what, that's because I enjoyed the mission details so much. Mr. David has a gift. This is one of the most creative books of have read in a while. I can still see scenes developed from this story in my imagination. This is a complete and well written story. The conclusion is well done and left me with a very pleasant sense of completion. The author did a wonderful job of leaving room for an awesome follow up story that will probably be even better than this one. The editing, as with every e-book I have read, is not perfect. If it were this would be a five star book. I wish I could give it another half star because it deserves it. Great job James F. David.

Excellent adventure, with quite some dark humor in place. I particularly liked the meeting of the team with the aliens, a lot of imagination involved ... Very enjoyable !

4.0 out of 5 stars Good not Great 27 April 2014

Well written, fast paced, intelligent, entertaining and thought provoking. I give the author high marks for the diversity of aliens (several species). However the protagonist and many supporting characters, simply did not strike me as fully developed or well rounded. The ending had some attempts at adding a touch of "romance" that was not needed, which (IMO) felt tacked on and out of character.
Not so much a cliff hanger type closing, but there is a definite unfinished business and open questions feel so a follow up (or two) would be interesting and desirable.
