I loved the way the author weaved together all the various conspiracies from the mid 90s into one cohesive storyline. It made for easy reading, and everything seemed to make some sense as the story unfolded.

Definitely worth picking up if you like conspiracy based stories, scifi, or both. ( )

Good military Sci-fi. This novel is the first book. Entertaining and fast paced read with an intriguing plot. This is the first book of a series of ten. The characters are clearly described. Author (what's his name?) mixes the ancient mysteries-- makes a new possible outcome for our future and what might happened. Does a really good job of weaving into the plot most of the well known alien conspiracy theories. Narrator, Jeffrey Kafer did not do his review on some of the words and they're mispronounced. Where's book #2? ( )
