An imaginative sci-fi thriller!,
This review is from: First Ark to Alpha Centauri 2: The True Price of Immortality (Paperback)
A. Ahad takes his readers on a voyage through time and space that is as informative as it is entertaining. The opening chapter, set on the planet Pritibee, introduces two young sisters with different destinies; one has the life sucked out of her and the other escapes -- to be found later on the far-flung planet of Chad. A parallel is drawn immediately between the two girls and the two planets. Pritibee is sucked out of existence by a black hole while Chad escapes -- torn out of orbit around Pritibee and flung into a cold world of darkness in deep space.
The frozen world of Chad holds uranium reserves that are vital to the continued existence of the starship Centauri Princess. When a mining expedition is sent out from the starship to plunder the reserves, the mineral scientists discover more than just uranium. In their curiosity, they re-awaken the living dead and change the course of their destinies in ways they had never thought possible.
First Ark to Alpha Centauri 2:The True Price of Immortality is an imaginative thriller that will enthral readers and leave them wanting more. I look forward to reading the next in the Centauri series by this accomplished author.
