However in this bo-ok there are mul-tipe badly placed hy-phens on every sin-gle page, and this cau-ses the book to be ex-tremely dif-ficcult to re-ad
I am ab-out half way thr-ough and am seri-ously considering giving up. every time I hit one of those cra-zy hyphens its like i do a men-tal hickup and it seriously im-pares my enjoy-ment of the st-oryline
It certainly doesn't pay to leave one of the books alone for too long, as there are so many different scenes of action, with new characters being introduced almost every chapter, it's really easy to lose track. This isn't helped (in the Kindle edition, anyway) by the author disconcertingly switching from one scene to another between paragraphs, with no break in between - that really throws you off kilter!
Nevertheless, it's a rattling good yarn and well worth reading.
There's a certain amount of rehashing of plot devices from the previous book, as well as the death of important characters written in such a way that leads the reader to suspect that eventually they may not be as unwell as first feared. And many of the surviving characters remain as paper-thin as in the first book, being little more than place-holders for the requisite members of the world's governments and military forces that would be involved in the scenarios used in the book.
The Area 51 books are still a fun read, however, and the world the author has created is plausible within the rules of the genre.
The characters from Area 51 are back! In the first novel The Guardian sent a message into space. Humans could do nothing but ponder who made The Guardian and where were they now. In the second novel, The Guardian gets a reply. All military branches of the world look toward the starts for the mother of The Guardian. But the aliens were not on a ship heading toward Earth. They had been much closer for a long time. They had been sleeping...deep within Mars.
The Guardian is not alone. There is another Guardian in Mars and it was reviving its creators. And there are other things to worry about.
A tomb in China turns out NOT to be a tomb, but an alien chamber...A giant ruby turns out to be a doomsday device to destroy Earth...The aliens say the are coming in peace, but proof shows they are not.
FIRST CONTACT has finally come to us...and we are not ready!
Now, to the strengths of "Area 51: The Reply". The action sequences of "Area 51: The Reply" were very well done. Definitely Mr. Doherty's forte. I also enjoyed the development of the STAAR conspiracy, and look forward to more of that in the next book.
I hope that for the next book, "Area 51: The Mission", we get all the action of "The Reply" combined with the well thought out and detailed characterizations from the original.
