    by Cerridwen Fitzpatrick-Connelly “Filling the space between words with solitude and silence, listening beyond the sounds around them to the song of the Universe.” Quote from page 85 I won’t waste your time with a long academic review. That would keep you from starting your reading and nothing should get in the way of that. This book is awesome! Alien Empires is the most cinematic sci fi novel that I have read or reviewed in over a decade. The word images (as in the quote above) are sensual, lush, and deliciously profound. The storyline flows like a series of streams merging into a great river racing to the sea. The characters, especially Sam, are solid, well crafted, and the sort of people you wish you had on your team when times get weird, and times get very weird indeed in this book. But it is the cinematic style of writing that grabbed me instantly, and the wry sense of humour that makes this tale of Sam/Joe/Starman one of the most compelling sci-fi tales that I have ever had the... More > pleasure to cross paths with. The author weaves together elements from many genres of sci-fi, action hero fiction, and ancient historic and archaeological references from numerous Earth cultures into a lovely swirling “soup” that is absolutely delicious and leaves you hungry for more. This book is destined to be the next Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster. And you can now say you were among the first to read the original novel. Buy it! Read it! Look out for the sequel!< Less

    Great read! The recipe for "How to cook a Draconian from the Draconian Empire" was delightfully seasoned, Bar-B-Qued to perfection and fed the whole family. I laughed till I cried and wet myself. At 1 pound the book is perfect for getting the attention of misbehaving children too! Now that I have your attention. This book contains scary parts that will keep you awake all night staring at the sky, gratuitous humor and Human/Alien...Well, they talk about the sexy parts without going into detail, making it safe for the timid. The research for accuracy? Well you'll have to get to the end won't you? Neven
