Veil Rising (The Star Guild Saga Book 1) Kindle Edition
Abducted along with thousands of others. Transported to a world of slavery for alien masters. Mind-wiped, so every hellish day in the mines feels like just another job shift.
This has been going on for millennia. And one day, archaeologist Ali Johnson decodes an ancient Sumerian tablet that unveils the truth. Those secrets set her on a trail of clues that lead to the right place at the absolute wrong time.
The plan to keep humanity at heel relies on periodic purges, and the countdown to genocide is ticking. Ali may be the spark that ignites galactic rebellion.
But before she can save mankind, she must remember who she is, what she’s lost, and why one terrible figure continues to haunt her dreams.
Hang on for the explosive series kick-off that thrills like Indiana Jones and twists like Total Recall. If you’re ready for the sci-fi adventure of the year, join Ali and grab Brandon Ellis’s Mesopotamian Pew-Pew now.

There are a couple of irritating faults in the writing, though. Constantly writing that the doors open vertically is not necessary, once we know that a door on the star ship opens vertically we can take that as a given. And which way is vertically? Do they open up, or down, with a horizontal opening? Or sideways, with a vertical opening? I thought I had it until a flat rock balanced vertically on two other rocks was described as providing a roof. Really? A vertical roof? How's that work? Ending sentences with at, for, etc. is simply bad grammar. Have someone proofread the work that is not grammatically challenged, please.
I have seen grammar in books that is much worse, so this wasn't too bad. I have also seen repetition that is much worse, so I can accept that, too. But a vertical roof? Okay, I can let that one slide, too. But all together? The cost is one star.
Fix those minor faults and this will be a five star book.
One other good thing, no DRM.
I recommend this book.
Anyway, what an intriguing and engaging space opera read.
Human's who have no idea their passed history is a big fat lie! and that they are really not alone in the universe.
Dumbed down intellectually, unknowingly controlled by beings of myths and story telling legends.
The veil is starting to lift and the truth is crawling to the surface.
After being attacked by unknown aliens, each main character ( of which there are a few) fight to stay alive, keep their family, friend's and people safe and unravel truth from fiction.
I'm loving the twist and turns, the fast paced adrenalin throughout and looking forward to reading more of this well written military space opera.
Highly recommended. 4.5 Star's.
It’s exciting to follow the twists and turns to see how everything will play out. The story is intriguing and raises lots of questions.
I’m not really a fan of some of the “chi” and the mysticism; but, it is science fiction and fantasy I have to remind myself. I think that the, dwarves seem very Toikenish. Also a Gandolph type character. Sometimes he seems to borrow too much from other books. I know our author can be a little more creative but I think this was one of his earlier books. We’ll see where he takes us in book two.

I expect the next group of episodes will deal with magic and the defeat of one group before going on to enlighten us to the rest of the universe!
The ending was very unsatisfactory - "They walked down the spiraling path, destination Dirn Garum." - what happened to all the baddies, and goodies?
I shall certainly not be buying the sequels, even to find out what was at the end of the path.
