As events unfold, Johnson, an Alaska native, must use his skills as a pilot to defend his country and his people from an invasion force.
The Sky Between Two Worlds: Part 1 – Apocalypse Denied by Glen E. Books is a thriller that you’ll find hard to put down. Exciting action scenes written with a degree of authenticity that makes you ready to believe the technology is real. Books also takes you inside the characters’ minds in a way that makes the plot totally believable. Part techno-thriller, part science fiction, it’s a must-read book for action-thriller fans. Some of the historical background could have been better melded into the dialogue or doled out in smaller chunks, but since it’s the first in a series, I’m prepared to cut the author some slack.
It's the middle 2000s and Kantak Johnson returns to Boston where he attended MIT with the expressed purpose of learning all he could to help his people, the Inupiat of Northwest Alaska.
It's a framing story that goes on to tell how the war happened.
Johnson helped his friend, Harvey Jamison, develop a process he'd developed that would absorb radar, effectively making invisible anything coated with it and not seen with the naked eye. A patent was applied for and applications sold to plane, ship, and war machine manufacturers.
But unknown to them, a professor of Jamison recognized the same thing and, having a hatred of America, gave it to the other side.
Then years later, when Kantak was a pilot in the Air Force, both sides were making moves that were headed toward war, both believing only they possessed the technology. Nid-Asia wanted prices on crude oil raised, the new American president, his religious and oil influences wanted them dropped.
You know where this is headed.
Quite enjoyed this one and look forward to more of Kantak Johnnson and his world.
Kantak is in two worlds, the world of an Alaskan Native and a world dominated by white men. While attempting to help those back home and getting the education he needs to do so, he stumbles into a technological revolution that will define his generation, and if the end of the book is any indication, generations to come as well.
I'm looking forward to the sequels and hope there are a lot of them!

The characters could have been much more well developed, there seemed to be little emotion or personal reactions involved. There was also some action scenes that had great potential for high tension description that just didn't happen.
Readable, but could have been much better.
