Publisher's Summary

What lies on the dark side of the moon could change the course of humanity forever.
When a Chinese rover discovers an alien technology on the dark side of the moon, it is up to Richard "Rock" Crandon and his NASA team of scientists and engineers to devise a way to return before the Chinese and Russians.
Forced to deal with bureaucratic oversight and a complex team of personalities, Rock Crandon pushes his team to their limits.
With pressure mounting, the world is pushed closer to conflict and war as the NASA team finds itself seriously behind in the newly initiated space race. The future of mankind, its ideological and technological advances are at stake, as the world's super powers race to discover what lies on the dark side of the moon.
Who will get there first, and at what cost?

Surprising start to a promising series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lunar Discovery?

The rescue scenario ( not a spoiler, as it can't be a series if they all die) is compelling listening.


Have you listened to any of Mark Boyett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't recall any, although I know I have listened to his work in the past. He is very good in this offering.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The dynamics between some of the characters are moving at times.


Any additional comments?

Some glitches in the production ( I listen on headphones, and there was some background noises ). There is also a lack of proper research, with naming conventions abit off, and the never ending repeating of the time setting is redundant.

All that said, this is a unique, slightly derivative but nonetheless solid beginning to a series that I will be sure to listen to through to the end. A solid credit worthy sci fi investment.

A Must Read.

I read and listen to a lot of books, with sci-fi and mystery thrillers (Agent Pendergast) being my drugs of choice, so I'l am not a novice to Audible. In my humble opinion this book is on par, if not above "The Marian." The plot is well thought out and plausible. The action is steady and not over powering. You are left on the edge of your seat and may find yourself overfilling your dog's bowl or shushing your spouse. The best part is Salvador keeps you intrigued and wanting more. Questioning, what if? You are not sidetracked by character building. Salvador stays true to the story and displays very good research and subject knowledge.
I highly recommend this book to any and everyone, particularly lucky fools new to Audible. This book will definitely get you hooked!
