This is smart science-fiction at its best. . . . Inspiring equal parts horror and wonder, like all great sci-fi, this novel also prompts readers to ponder humanity’s place in the universe. There’s no indication that this book is the first in a series, but it easily could be, and I hope he pens a sequel. -Amazon Review
Deep within snow-crested mountains, nine thousand feet above the lumber town of Blackwood, Oregon, a vessel has arrived. It is a craft of enormous dimensions, covering the mountainous peak. And yet, the ground beside it remains undisturbed. Not a single pine tree broken. Not a sound to be heard. Inside the craft, however, things are not as quiet.
A young waitress, Casey Stevens, awakens after having mysteriously vanished from Blackwood thirty-five years earlier. And she is not alone. Navigating inverted tunnels, she’s plagued by ghostly apparitions from her past and stalked by a ravenous alien experiment gone horribly wrong. When Casey discovers her own body is changing—becoming blotched with grey, scaly patches—she fears she may face the same fate as the once-human creature that now hunts her.
I highly recommend this book to those who continue to seek answers and want to have a more universal perspective of what else is out there. I dare you to take on the experience of “The Ship”. It has left me inquisitive and eager to learn more. -Amazon Review
