Summary

When the future hunts the past, humanity is doomed....

Budding physicist Lucas Ramsay was sure his reactor would change history. He was sure everyone would chant his name.

Unfortunately for the human race, he was right.

When his antigravity experiment succeeds in a way he never imagined, the planet is brought to its knees by an unstoppable force that crosses time and space to systematically exterminate all life on Earth.

Grid failures, anarchy, and murder are just the start when the planet is thrown into chaos.

But just when Lucas thinks the nightmare couldn't get any worse, he learns he's been maneuvered into the middle of an intergalactic war, one where perception is measured on a planetary scale.

Nothing is as it appears to be, challenging his faith in science and in reality.

SEEMED to be working towards an ok story.

One of those books that “promise” a good story if you can just endure the interminable minutia and wait. I don’t know if this guy is a new writer but this has the feel of a first effort. I was taken in by the possibility that the story might eventually redeem the poor writing. It did not and I slogged through to the end. Not worth the money and not worth the time. I’m disappointed that I wasted my time but, at least I can return the sequel.
Narrator was fine. Good, in fact. The “h” in vehicle is silent though. Makes me wonder if anyone proof listens.
My recommendation is do not buy this.

Interesting concepts but writing gets in the way..

I was disappointed because while the concepts introduced had a lot of good potential for use in a science fiction story, the writing got in the way. Characters seem mostly skin deep. Some of the main characters have more described about how they feel and what drives them, but then the writing from scene to scene feels a little jarring. The character thinks about feelings of sadness or remorse or concern, and then in the very next scene is bantering about something in a light hearted way or thinking internally about trivial things. All emotions feel skin deep and transitory. I feel like the character is *telling* me about things that happened to someone else, vs. that feeling of truly being immersed in a real person's *life* as it unfolds. The difference between someone describing a painting and actually seeing a painting.
Anyway, I will likely try the 2nd story in the series just to see if it's a little more engaging, but this one left me a little disappointed.

A bit to predictable

If you have read much science fiction than you will be able to predict how the book plays out pretty quickly. One main character is a self serving and self loathing scientist and the other is his boss secretly from the future that knows everything and always has an answer. Not all that much fun for a sophisticated reader.
