...IT IS A POPCORN BOOK. Just like many action movies. Fun to read or fun to watch. Like the first one [First Contact] my diligent side ignores my own version of the flaws and I sit back and read and enjoy. It is a fun book. No heavy lifting. I hope Jackson keeps it going but just don't milk it like Turtledove. And buy the short stories. Nice spin off material. One of the better self published series I've read. - OJ
The Terran Chronicles Universe (TCU) is an eBook saga which spans the stars. The adventure begins on Earth when an alien race makes First Contact with us. Their visitation is brief, yet it changes Earth's political and scientific landscape forever. The Discovery of a partially built spacecraft is a boon to some, to others its technologies are something jealously sought after.
As we broaden our horizons into space, we find struggles ensuing just as on Earth, but with differences we can’t even begin to comprehend.
Today's impossibilities are merely tomorrows footnotes in journals of scientific discovery. Imagine exploring the boundaries of the Milky Way with all its wonders. Our galaxy is but one speck in the cosmic mass of the universe.
The Terran Chronicle Universe is expansive, with the story unfolding one step at a time. Humanity's role is but one small part of the story. Our ultimate destiny is unrevealed at this time, indeed our very survival is not guaranteed.
What began as a brief visit by an alien race has set in motion a chain of events that not only change us forever, but affect other races in ways we could not even begin to comprehend.
