Very action packed book with a wonderful lead character. A good mystery and a good love story. Lots of technology that someday we may achieve.
Commander Noa Sato plans a peaceful leave on her home planet Luddeccea ... but winds up interrogated and imprisoned for her involvement in the Archangel Project. A project she knows nothing about.
Professor James Sinclair wakes in the snow, not remembering the past twenty four hours, or knowing why he is being pursued. The only thing he knows is that he has to find Commander Sato, a woman he's never met.
A military officer from the colonies and a civilian from Old Earth, they couldn't have less in common. But they have to work together to save the lives of millions--and their own.
Every step of the way they are haunted by the final words of a secret transmission:
The archangel is down.
A very entertaining Sci-Fi-Fantasy realm with great characters and steady but powerful suspense building.
At first I thought this would be cool. It starts out in an alien concentration camp, and there's a Time Gate, which I liked, but then the flashbacks began. Those are a hard sell for me. Nothing kills my interest in a story quicker than looking back. It turned me off for the rest of the book. Your mileage may vary.
The story starts very slow and you may want to stop reading it, but don't it begins to get very good. I can't wait to read the next one in this series.
Although the beginning started with suspense & mystery, too many complicated details combined with other stories made it challenging and the ending left you wondering really what was going on.
Archangel Down presents the reader with a multitude of complex social paradigms, but seen through the lenses of a future society that has developed some unique solutions. As the primary planetary colony in the story begins to reject the modern technology from fear of losing their humanity, the struggles presented strike chords with many of the conundrums we experience in our present say world here on Earth. A compelling read, but it does leave something to be desired as far as understanding the threat. I’m sure it will be explained in further books, but plot holes shouldn’t be used as a means to sell books as frequently as they are these days.
An enjoyable read
New genre for the author, but an interesting premise & background to the story line.
