I received a 5-star review from Moses Siregar III (http://sciencefictionfantasybooks.net) on Amazon US. He wrote, "The ending gave me a high that I've rarely felt with books or movies."

That line fills me with elation.

Read through it all. Excellent writing, very good story. Downside is the connection with the characters just felt empty as if the upcoming event was the focus and the people were just along for the ride, rather than actual participants in the upcoming event.
My personal preference in scifi is to not have all the technological items already laid out like the DMR, psychic patch, stuff along that nature, but leave it open to interpretation to the reader. Again that is just a personal preference.

I received a 5-star review from a wonderful new blogger, Matt Heckler at http://androiddreamer.blogspot.com and a very solid 4-star review from Mike Kai on Amazon US.

Both reviews have helped re-invigorate me during the drafting stage of the sequel. Thank you for the kind words!

I'm making headway on the sequel, Music of the Spheres. So far, I'm still on track for an August release. I'm very excited.

I've had an unprecedented number of fan emails so far this month. Thank you all for your kind words. It's really inspiring me to keep working on the sequel, which is is still on track for an August release.

I'd like to offer an excerpt for Forbidden The Stars:

++++++++++

The tomb was complete; darkness impenetrable, forever. He was a living corpse in a coffin of the unknown; his brain had ceased all higher functions in defense of the impossible data that had bombarded his senses. It was all too much.

Breathing was an effort. It was increasingly more difficult with each passing millennium.

Or was that, each passing minute?

Alex slowly came to realize that he was losing oxygen in the security receptacle. There was no light for him to read the monitors; the devices themselves were not operating.

“Hucs?” he called out. “Hucs?”

Only silence answered him.

Memory was the core of a spider web; Alex was on the outer thread. He followed the silken strands, careful not to fall off into the bottomless depths of insanity.

Something had hit the asteroid. His parents had been outside, on the surface.

“Mom! Dad!” he called out weakly, not expecting them to answer. “Help!”

He tried to move his head, but there was something stopping him; he remembered, the security receptacle encased his head in protective foam, leaving just enough room for him to breathe.

Moving his hand, he drew it up and tried to rip the solidified foam from his head, but it was too hard. He had to activate Hucs; the computer must have gone off-line. Flicking his hand over the control switches brought no results.

Feeling around for the manual override, a panic set in, causing his heart to trip-hammer in his chest. The override, when he found it, produced no effect either. The entire TAHU was dysfunctional.

A scream welled in his throat, his brain rebelling against the claustrophobia that was constricting him. Out in the vastness of empty space, he was trapped, immobile.

++++++++++

Thank you to everyone who grabbed Forbidden The Stars on sale. I hope you enjoy the story.

I'm really enjoying the drafting process on the sequel, and it's very on-schedule for a December 2011 release. ;D

Looks like the scientists at Cern are re-running their faster-than-light experiments. I will have to keep watch for their results. This could be very interesting. ;D
