Imagine stepping through a door into a future where your destiny is to lead mankind back into space to discover and settle new planets. Follow Dave Brewster through the portal to explore new worlds and come face to face with incredible aliens. Join with him as he find the key to save a planet and stop a monstrious invastion.
Karl Morgan tells the story of Dave Brewster, an unemployed accountant in San Diego, who finds himself recruited to move into the future, where humanity has lost its desire to explore and grow. His family begins an amazing journey through time and space, forming partnerships with powerful aliens societies and encountering remarkable Beings living in our own backyard.
Through all the adventures, we are reminded that life is about family and friendship, and that our brothers and sisters do not need to be from our family or even from our planet.
"I really enjoy to read it, and discover the humans in their evolution process and progress, interacting with inhabitants from other planets. For sure humans will find the way to live longer and take care of the limited resources.
"The book contains values as mankind, love, support, loyalty, leadership, family union, friendship, all reflection of the author's life. Definitively a book I recommend." ~ Adolfo Arroyo Sarabia
"I loved this book! It is such a thrill to read science fiction which is a perfect blend between blood-and-guts galactic wars (move over "Star Trek") and tender, loving friendships between high commanding officers. But the most fun is when Dave, who seems to save entire worlds from annihilation, visits his home planet Earth and goes back to Starbucks to have a coffee and a chocolate croissant.
"Even more important, though, is the clean, moral, spiritual theme which is woven very softly throughout the book like a fine thread, hardly noticed, but tracking every movement of the good guys. This approach to science fiction brings a fresh, new introduction to us Earth Beings: The manner in which conflict is resolved between galactic brothers (one of which resembles a big, sweet, adorable spider who loves whisky) is a welcome relief from stalemate, congress-like interactions between rivals.
"What happens is this: When two warring factions come together (and you love them both), it is so fulfilling to experience each of them actually understanding the others' viewpoint and getting together to stop planets from being blown up. When the next conflict comes, you sit on the edge of your seat wondering "how in the galaxy" they are going to get out of this one! The Age of Enlightenment has arrived in "Showdown Over Neptune." If you are an aficionado book connoisseur who has only the patience for best sellers, this is the book for you!" ~ Mary Meyers
