Falling Star (The Watchers) 


I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge, and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews. 

My sixth review is of the sci-fi thriller, Falling Star...

About Falling Star

The World is at risk; not the ordinary risk seen every night on prime time news, but a horrific one that portends the possibility of total annihilation. Mysterious but silent objects have been found buried deep in the murky depths of the ocean. However, something has suddenly happened. These objects wake up and start sending messages to outer space. Mike, pulled back into a clandestine world that he thought he had left behind to help decipher these messages, is attacked by gangs of ordinary looking Americans and must fight for his very life. Who are these attackers? Why have they targeted Mike and his colleagues in the secret agency? On top of these interwoven threats, Mike learns that a revered friend has died. With the death of this friend, is mankind's last hope for understanding the signals lost forever in the silt and muck of the ocean bottom?

Review

This isn't the kind of genre I'd normally read, so I didn't really know what to expect. What I found was a suspenseful sci-fi thriller that packs in UFOs, espionage, twists and turns galore, history, and anticpation as to what mysterious things really are lurking at the bottom of the ocean, and who wants to cover it up.

It was well-written, and although some readers have said the description is too detailed, as a reader who wasn't aware of some of the technical details involved in this story, it actually helped me grasp the concept better.

If you're looking for a novel that is mysterious and thought-provoking, then look no further than Falling Star.

Falling Star is available from Amazon UK and Amazon.com
