Forbidden The Stars (The Interstellar Age Book 1)

At the end of the 21st century, a catastrophic accident in the asteroid belt has left two surveyors dead. There is no trace of their young son, Alex Manez, or of the asteroid itself.

On the outer edge of the solar system, the first manned mission to Pluto, led by the youngest female astronaut in NASA history, has led to an historic discovery: there is a marker left there by an alien race for humankind to find. We are not alone!

While studying the alien marker, it begins to react and, four hours later, the missing asteroid appears in a Plutonian orbit, along with young Alex Manez, who has developed some alarming side-effects from his exposure to the kinetic element they call Kinemet.

From the depths of a criminal empire based on Luna, an expatriate seizes the opportunity to wrest control of outer space, and takes swift action.

The secret to faster-than-light speed is up for grabs, and the race for interstellar space begins!

The sequel, “Music of the Spheres (The Interstellar Age Book 2)” is due for release December 2011.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I absolutely _loved_ this story. I think that’s due to the setting and the storyline itself, as well as due to the spirit behind the novel. That last ingredient is hard for me to put my finger on. I think the author hit on something very powerful that I can’t quite define, but I could feel the love and passion that the author had for the story and for the characters. It transported me to a believable future that I still found wondrous.

*******

When I read a book (and I read a lot of them) the main thing I am looking for is entertainment. Forbidden The Stars hit that mark.

I enjoyed how the characters were introduced and interacted. I really enjoyed how the author broke up the narrative with logs and journals. But mostly I liked that the details of the story were accurate and well researched and the interaction between the characters and the science was excellent.

5 Stars for this novel and I am hoping for a next book in this series.

*******

It took a rare level of writing ability to author this book. I really enjoyed this story. If you’re capable of enjoying Sc-Fi at all, you’ll love Forbidden The Stars!
