Also having read his first novel 'Noah's Ark' I was thrilled to hear that Andrew Morgan was releasing another book. Vessel grabbed me from the first page and the amazing cover. I loved his in-depth descriptions of the world in Noah's Ark and Vessel is no different. Although I have not read many novels of this genre before, the jargon used is understandable and very effectively used, making you feel really involved in the story. You can tell Andrew has put in a lot of research for this book and it has clearly paid off. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

There's a lot to like about Vessel. It's a decent read, though at times a little distracted by the two stories - one in space and one on the ground. Though the characters are vivid enough I wanted to get to know them more so I would care more about them. On the other hand the author seems preoccupied with a selection of characters, to the detriment of the supporting cast.

The story moves along at a nice pace, switching back and forth between key players as events unfold, and though there's some obvious padding here and there, which I found a touch tedious, it didn't stop me from turning the pages.

After following Andrew's chapters on his blog I was keen to read this in book format, compared to the unnatural way blog text is laid out - paragraph gaps, no indents etc, unnatural for reading fiction anyway. There have been some changes prior to launch as a novel, and the editing process has aided the flow.

Since reading his previous novel, Noah's Ark, it is evident that Andrew has matured as a writer. Vessel has come cracking description segments. The scenes on the ISS are unnerving as the conditions come across as cramped and awkward, bordering on claustrophobic. I was reminded on a number of occasions of movies like Event Horizon, or even Alien, where the camera angles narrow down toward the end to confine the viewer into a smaller space.

Vessel is an ambitious story, which at times suffered from either a lack of planning or guess work when it came to research. Andrew creates a good foundation of realism in order to make the fantastical elements believable. I didn't enjoy the initial introduction to the abbreviations and jargon, especially in the opening scenes.

Just devoured thus book in a few hours. Exceptionally well written and (to my surprise) self published by a very promising British author.

A cunningly devised thriller set in Russia and onboard the International Space Station,
the story fast paced enough to keep interest, without skipping over the fascinating detail of the ISS, I can honestly say the imagery is so vivid I almost felt I was there.

Well worth a read, personally I am already excited for the sequel...

Having read Andrew Morgans first book - Noahs Ark - I was looking forward to see what would come next. Vessel is a much more polished story and shows how the author has grown. The Storyline is fast-paced enough to keep the reader engaged and the characters are believable and well depicted. I had followed this book on Andrews blog and enjoyed reading it a chapter at a time, the published version has benefited from a thorough editing and is a better read (some significant changes and additions to the blog version). I think a lot of readers will be surprised to find this is a self-published book - better than many I have read from established publishing houses. Lets hope that Mr Morgan can get a deal for his third book which will again be available through his blog.

My two favourite genres being fantasy and space opera I don't generally have a problem with implausible. Setting this book in the present opened the gate to the field of implausibility however and the storyline happily sprinted through and did a few laps around it. A Moscow investigator with access to USA military DNA files? A NASA 'operative' taking over a Russian mission control? No politicians or political involvement in a 'first contact'? All perhaps forgivable in a blue water original storyline but this was a rehashing of a storyline that first appeared about two thousand years ago. Got bored, started flicking pages, read the ending and then wished I had flicked pages on that.

Grabs your attention from the start. Wonderfully descriptive. Felt like I was in the ISS itself. A couple of slight criticisms in that there were a few big plot jumps towards the end that left me slightly confused and it seemed to finish too quickly. Would really like to see the story continued.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) NASA and Russian Federal Space Agency (RFSA) are continuing to operate the International Space Station (ISS) together.

However, now there is an additional vessel orbiting in space.

Andrew J. Morgan’s imageries of place and action help draw the reader in, investing in characters from the outset.

I particularly liked following the parallel, related stories—one on the ground, one 240 miles in space—as they unfolded page after page. Sally Fisher, a communication expert specializing in deep space transmission is rushed to the space station in an attempt to contact the glistening apparition that is following the ISS. Her immediate overseer, however, has other plans.

Journalist Sean Jacob gets wind of some of the goings on and decides to investigate, opening a can of worms that neither he nor his editor can contain. Conspiracy, secrets and betrayal are the order of the day in this tale of international, perhaps, interplanetary intrigue.

The evolution of the characters allows the reader to become involved in their lives, struggles, hopes and fears. The story arc keeps us attached to the next twist and eventual outcome. The narrative is both plausible, and possible.

For lovers of strongly written science fiction that carries a worthwhile message, I highly recommend “Vessel.”
