About the Author
M. David Ward is an author of science fiction novels and the occasional short story, all of which are characterised by a lightness of touch and an undercurrent of humour that pulls the reader from page to page. He eschews hard sci-fi and space opera, preferring instead to take the familiar and to twist it into new and surprising shapes, like a clown with balloons.

I enjoyed it from page one and realised that a few days into reading it I was looking forward to getting on the train so I could read more. A true ‘page turner’ I think!
I shall be exploring more of the authors work and would recommend anyone to do so as well.
But then it all starts to get a bit tenuous, with a highly unlikely plot and aliens with super advanced technology which "they don't really understand", and a large part of the story bogged down in a lengthy and boring introduction of the aliens. And disappointingly, it turns out there isn't much science in this fiction.
While Mark is a very able writer, I'd say he'd find his progress in the genre slow.
The Marguerite Effect has a wonderful blend of science, fast actions and at time even a touch of romance? So I did stay up late a few evenings wanting to know... what happens next!
The Marguerite Effect is clever and entertaining addressing some contemporary subjects like renewable energy.
Hope the book do well, worth reading!
