Publisher's Summary

Kalian Gaines has a secret; he just doesn't know it yet. He looks like us, he lives like us...but he is not one of us.
Kalian knows nothing outside of his mundane life teaching history on 30th-century Earth, until a day like any other triggers a series of events that will tie his fate to that of humanity.
A human handprint, embedded into a rock with alien script, is discovered on a moon that mankind has never set foot on. This discovery holds a secret, which will sweep Kalian into the heart of a conspiracy that has corrupted the galaxy for 200,000 years.

Unexpectedly Brilliant

I'll admit to grabbing this book for three reasons, 1) the cover looked interesting (which made me look at it), 2) the synopsis sounded better than the average, and 3) I just really, really needed a good book.
Not the most promising of beginnings but Intrinsic delivered the unexpected. I was looking up Book 2 before i was half way through it. Again, great cover. The main character is likable enough, i spent the first half of the book wanting more info on him, then the second half realizing that more would have been too much. The story starts as one would expect: Aliens, Questions and a bit of "Why Me?" thrown in for a conversation starter, then goes from strength to strength after a rather earth shatteringly huge shock.
Honestly, if you are looking for something to sink your teeth into while you wait for the next Expeditionary Force novel or you just fancy reading something that doesn't orbit alien sex, drugs and more sex then this is a great choice. Plus, the cover art is pretty damn awesome.

Superman Narrator

This was a well written, entertaining, and fun book. George Newbern is great as a narrator. I loved Justice League and Superman back in the day, and at first I couldn't place his voice. I thought he may be that guy from Wings. Then it hit me, "That's Superman!"

His voice is great for capturing the "every man". Loved it.

Can't wait for the next book!

Feel the force, Luke

Earth and its only colony are destroyed, billions are dead, but it turns out one man has the immense potential to connect with all matter and energy and bend it to his will, if only he could find an ancient, sage-like being to train him to use the force... err whatever it is... and defeat the dark clad being with the monster sized ship capable of destroying entire stars. Yawn.

ENTHRALLING WHEN AT IT'S BEST

IN MY TOP TEN OF THE YEAR SO FAR,STARTS FAST WITH ACTION AND MYSTERY COMBINED,SLOWS DOWN A LITTLE TOO MUCH AT TIMES TO FILL IN THE BACK STORY AND INTRODUCE NEW CHARACTERS,IF YOU LIKE SPACE OPERA YOU WILL LIKE THIS,HAVE BOUGHT THE SECOND BOOK.
