Overview

This is the story of what really happened to the wreckage found at the two crash sites outside of Roswell in 1947, as told to me by a retired Air Force pilot some forty years ago. It may sound a bit "far fetched", but, in the end it is the only story I've ever heard that really makes sense of it all. After you read his tale, you will have to decide for yourself. I (for one) am a believer.

As in any profession, there are different levels of proficiency in writers. There are the two star Dean Koontz's and Dan Brown's near the bottom, and then there are the five star Peter F. Hamilton's and George R.R. Martin's near the top. This author falls in between which astonished me as I was expecting something of much lower quality from a self-published author-both in content and editing. The editing is very, very good considering the length of this work and presuming the author was responsible for all edits. As I well know, it is near impossible to edit your own work. You, sir, are my hero. There are a few typos here and there, and some incorrect punctuation usage, but these detract from neither the author's story nor the voice he uses to tell it-both of which I found to be superb. In fact, I enjoyed this first part of the three-part series so much by the conclusion of its tenth chapter that I jumped back online and bought the second and third books "sight unseen." However, I was very disappointed with one aspect of the book and hence the requirement to suspend disbelief. The "hook," or the synopsis, the author has written reeled me in like no book has since I was a kid, BUT the story lacks verisimilitude, or the appearance of being true, because it is so incredibly detailed and not consistent with hearsay. I wanted it to be true, I did, but I felt cheated when I realized that it could not possibly be an eyewitness/participant recounting early on. This annoyed me at first, but I couldn't stop reading the story despite this. Once I let my annoyance go and understood the hook for what it was, I enjoyed the story much more. For this reason as well as a few "hokey" scenes that left me snorting B.S. and also required a suspension of disbelief, I have deducted one star. Had the author not been, what I would consider, such an excellent wordsmith, I would have gone much easier him. In closing, I would like to point out that I panicked when I concluded reading the prologue because I thought this would be a story with a heavy religious theme. Why? Because it is pointed out in the middle that the pilot is a "solid, God fearing man" and finishes with "His truth is now 'out there.'" Rest assured, if you came to the same conclusion as I did upon reading the sample, this is not the case. If you like SciFi (like me) and have an active imagination and/or are able to suspend belief in lieu of great enjoyment for a great story well told by a great author (like me), buy the book. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Alan James for a great read! I can't wait to "burn through" the next two. Review crossposted on Smashwords.

Great take on the Roswell incident. Good characters. Well written. My problem with this tale is the three parts. Now I have to hunt down books 2 and 3 to find out what happens.

This story was interesting to point, but I lost some of the fantasy in the middle. It did not hold my interest throughout. Sorry I wish it was better.

Book two and three are also called The Children of Roswell Book Two and Three. This series is great for fantasy and sci-fi lovers.
