Publisher's Summary

The Starchild Compact is an epic tale of beginnings, roots, what might have been, and what might be. It is an adventure of heroic proportions, commencing 500 light years away, arriving here just a few years from now, and ending in the distant expanses of the Universe.
Jon Stock takes his international exploration team to Saturn's moon, Iapetus, which Earth scientists have determined may be an artifact. Following launch, they discover Saeed Ismail, a Jihadist stowaway, who hopes to sabotage the mission.
They arrive at Iapetus, determine it is a derelict starship, and eventually meet with the Founders, descendants of the starship builders. Their revelations impact the entire Solar System with momentous implications going backward and forward in time, paving the way for a joint push to the distant reaches of the Galaxy.

Not bad if you are a teenage boy I suppose

Would you try another book from Robert G. Williscroft and/or Trenton Bennett?

Highly unlikely. Disappointing in every way.


Has The Starchild Compact turned you off from other books in this genre?

Hardcore sci-fi? No. Misogynistic, leering, odd toned stories? Yes.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Trenton Bennett?

Stephan Rudnicki, if he would have taken on the job.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. The first episode in this series was oddly compelling and held my interest. This sequel was overtly, and obsessively, focussed on what the women were wearing, what their breasts looked like, etc. etc. Seriously?


Any additional comments?

I was provided a copy of this offering in exchange for a free and independent review. I almost regret I did. I am not sure where the author wanted to take this story arc, but the almost comical references to the clothing the women chose to wear, ( and, for that matter, all the characters chose to wear ) was silly, repetitive and distracting. This author can do better, and should.
The narrator was dry, and not particularly compelling.

All in all, I can't recommend this in any aspect. Oops!
