An "Asteroid endangers the earth story"? Far more than that!,

This review is from: Neptune Crossing (The chaos chronicles) (Mass Market Paperback)
While Clarkes HAMMER OF GOD is his weakest efford I know, Carvers NEPTUNE CROSSING is equally compelling and enjoyable. His advantage over Clarke are his aliens; creatures that accompany the lead charakter on his involuntary and dangerous quest to save the earth.
Just this team of "feet on the ground hero" (human) and "guiding presense" (alien) make this book so interesting.
Although it is the opener for the CHAOS CHRONICLES it is also great as a stand-alone novel. Enjoy the amusing dialoques and the suspensefull plot!
