Editorial Reviews


★★★★★ - "In this gripping novel, how will a starship crew break free when aliens control their reality?" Chris Fried @ The Indie Athenaeum

★★★★★ - "A different first contact story with heavy mystery/psychological thriller content. Well written, sound science."Roy G. Biv
★★★★★ - "I loved this book, so quietly dazzling in its concepts and utterly believable characters"Kezza, Amazon Reviewer
★★★★★ - "Characters to care about and a situation that asks interesting questions about reality and the nature of self"M. McMasters, Amazon Reviewer
