Book Description

June 26 2012 Heaven's Shadow (Book 1)
From the acclaimed authors of Heaven's War comes a tale that gives "Arthur C. Clarke a run for his money." (Robert J. Sawyer)

An immense object is approaching Earth. Two manned vehicles race through space to land first on the frozen, desolate surface: one launched by NASA, the other representing a Russian-Indian-Brazilian Coalition. Both crews have orders to do whatever it takes to claim it as their own.
 
But the entity is not simply a rock hurtling through the blackness. It has been sent to Earth for a reason. A vastly more intelligent race is desperately attempting to communicate with our primitive species. And their interstellar courier carries a message that the very core of humanity has responded to since time began…

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read, Well Done July 25 2012
By Fred Rayworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I haven't read a pure science fiction novel in a while and this one was quite well done. Short chapters, great characters and an exciting plot made for a fun read.

I won't go into the plot but can say that it does have some icky bugs in it. There's a lot of NASA stuff going on and if that's your thing, you'll have fun with that. I found myself wanting to keep turning pages with the crisp narrative and fast-paced action that didn't drag. Short chapters that were easy to read, even during commercials made this thick novel a great experience.

The story also ended well and that's a big plus for me. I didn't have any problem with either the science, logistics or any of what happened, though I'm no expert and I'm sure anyone intimately familiar with the reality could probably pick all kinds of holes in it.

For me, it was worth the price of admission. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure what his book wanted to be. It read like it was written by a committee. It had a lot of interesting premises that were all overshadowed by it being a horrible book.
