Book Description

April 2000 Vor: The Maelstrom
Torn from the universe by an insatiable cosmic vortex, Earth is trapped in the grotesque parody of reality called the Maelstrom -- along with thousands of other planets, millions of species, billions of warring creatures...all swirling toward ultimate destruction. ALIEN HORROR It materializes off the Oregon coast in a burst of devastation and tsunamis: an island containing an alien city ... and perhaps the way for Earth to escape the Maelstrom. But the Union soldiers and civilian scientists sent to the strange ruins aren't the only ones who want the island's power. For the humans are soon confronted by unearthly monsters -- the walking-dead Pharons and morphing Sand. And these horrors intend to claim victims on their unholy journey through the Maelstrom, even as the entire island itself begins to disappear.

The Pharon high priest stood in the control room of his spacecraft, the jewel-of-power solar collector over his head almost touching the ceiling as he stood watching the viewscreen. Read the first page

2.0 out of 5 stars VOR: Island of Power 25 Dec 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was so-so at best.

Most of the novels failed to stick to the VOR setting they were portrayed in. This novel accomplished that which makes it better than every other VOR novel than the Playback War in my opinion. Though it gave good depictions of a setting in the Vor: The Maelstrom it lacked a compelling plot. This novel isn't a mystery, not a romance, no great tales of heroism, camaraderie, or anything else. The whole story is summed up in a group of people race against undead aliens to the center of a mysterious island then race off before it vanishes, The End.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book 9 July 2001
By JerryLP - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A great book. I personally am not into the series of these books but I thought this was excellent. It's about this alien island that appears off the coast of Oregon. Sent to investigate is a team of scientists and a platoon of soldiers. But when they get there they find an abandoned alien city and the walking dead that are trying to kill these soldiers. An excellent book, one of the only ones I ever wanted to read again.
