a bit too much killing that seemed arbitrary... but very interesting premise. ( )

The Breach is one of those books that's a real pleasure to read and draws you in from the first page to the last.

A unique plot and plenty of action as well as plot twists keeps you turning the pages will into the night.

Looking forward to the following book 'Ghost Country' now. ( )

A thrilling suspense with a bit of sci-fi! You will be on the edge of your seat as main character Travis Chase races against the clock to solve an impossible mystery.

Although the beginning and the way the story is told is way different, the scenario reminds me of [b:Signal to Noise|700919|Signal to Noise|Eric S. Nylund|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347807271s/700919.jpg|1267626] and the sequel [b:A Signal Shattered|737628|A Signal Shattered|Eric S. Nylund|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1387736919s/737628.jpg|1098536], the main character, the Alien named "Wheeler" was one of the most interesting characters I read. "Whisper" seems to pursue similar goals and the idea of the Breach as a way to be given Alien Technology is so far not explained but seems similar to "Signal to noise". Although I just started it yesterday and have been doing other things I am at 37%, still very good, might be a 5star so far and I will certainly read the next book in the series.
A few nice twists, although I guessed some properties of the Breach, others came as a surprise as did the origin of of Whisper.

Highly recommended, and takes a different approach with no solution as to the origin of the Entities coming of the Breach (although it is hinted with Whisper).
Solid 5 star and I just bought the other two books in the Trilogy - [b:Ghost Country|8479092|Ghost Country (Travis Chase, #2)|Patrick Lee|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1393478102s/8479092.jpg|13344068] and [b:Deep Sky|12135086|Deep Sky (Travis Chase, #3)|Patrick Lee|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328304576s/12135086.jpg|17104926].
Some scenes are very brutal and bloody and the hero of the story Travis Chase is aware of that but kills nonetheless without a lot of remorse even if some is not justified. ( )

My totally random brother in law ended up spending a weekend reading this at my house and it was off his recommendation I picked it up.

This is a damn interesting book. Secret government agencies protecting a "breach' in space and time. From this hole comes a variety of things delivered randomly by some unseen force. Seem objects seem useless, some incredibly dangerous and some possible technological breakthroughs that could change the world. It is not random though. Someone or something in some place or some time has an agenda and it's all about to kick off. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061584452, Mass Market Paperback)

Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door.

It is the world's best-kept secret—and its most terrifying.

Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the President of the United States. Though a nightmare of monumental proportions, it pales before the terror to come, as Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact.

Allied with a beautiful covert operative whose life he saved, Chase must now play the role he's been destined for—a pawn of incomprehensible forces or humankind's final hope—as the race toward Apocalypse begins in earnest.

Because something is loose in the world.

And doomsday is not only possible . . . it is inevitable.
