A sudden and brutal attack on a coalition training camp in Iraq wipes out all but two survivors: Captain James Grant and Australian SAS Sergeant David Maclean. Drawn into a clandestine world that deals with unusual encounters the two soldiers volunteer to help with the investigation into an alleged UFO crash in Alaska. The mission, however, is far from simple as it soon becomes apparent that something dangerous is going on and not everyone is as they appear to be.
5 Star Amazon Reviews for Fallen Star by Richard Turner
This well-written book by Richard Turner—with both science fiction and fantasy elements—has a complement of fully-fleshed protagonists and a fast-paced plot. It has wormholes, interstellar travel, soldiers & scientists, gore & guts, US alphabet agencies, people-eating bears & tigers, apex-predator birds that terrorize humans, a mountain that is blown up, and a lake which is vaporized. Plus there are shapeshifting aliens that are not unlike werewolves, not to mention vampires that turn into bats.
Thank you to author Richard Turner for using the Metric System in this science fantasy. Maybe someday the USA will join the rest of the world.
Project Gauntlet by Richard Turner was one exciting read. Oh, it’s a very good and exciting read. It’s 4:15 a.m. and I have finished it now. I started at 7 a.m. this morning. Couldn’t put it down, seriously. The characters are slow, but sure, animated in your mind and you begin to cheer them on as you read. If you like a story about how the powers that be put out misinformation about UFO sightings, you’re gonna love how this one turned out.
