There was an interesting story line of a loner geeky guy and his sister with a strange relationship between the two. She is a pilot who wants to fly the big jets, and he, well he's a geek. Just so happens he's a geek who finds a new object out in space with his trusty old telescope, an object which people soon realise is no ordinary object. I like how the story develops, and especially I like EZ, the cat. Yes, cats in space folks. The character development was really good. I got to know the characters, and was surprised when relationships didn't always end as expected.
Okay ,I don't want to give more away than that. If you like first contact novels, aviation and space you'll really like this. I read the author is a flight instructor, something I can also relate to. The book is written to a professional standard, not the guff that passes as ebook rubbish. I spotted no spelling or major grammatical errors. It definitely has earned a 5 out of 5.
If you like Rendezvous with Rama, Contact and even ET, you'll probably enjoy this novel.
