The science fiction epic of our time has arrived.

Three years ago, an object one hundred miles across was spotted on a trajectory for Earth’s sun. Now, its journey is almost over. As it approaches, two competing manned vehicles race through almost half a million kilometers of space to reach it first. But when they both arrive on the entity, they learn that it has been sent toward Earth for a reason. An intelligent race is desperately attempting to communicate with our primitive species. And the message is: Help us.

    " Really enjoyed this story. Excited to read the second! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Raymond Conrad | 1/30/2014

    " I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book. It satisfied my desire for a good Sci-Fi adventure by giving all the elements I have expected in one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Radgoski | 1/21/2014

    " Fairly straightforward story about two separate missions to a near earth object... And the complications that arise...as well as other surprises that take it from fiction with science to science fiction. I really enjoyed it. Quick read, interesting characters and story. I look forward to book 2 "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jim Handy | 1/19/2014

    " Quite simply the worst book I have ever had the misfortune to read. No redeeming features whatsoever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bulwor | 12/15/2013

    " Feels like Coccoon the movie crossed with Apollo 13... I think I like it. I'm going to see about a War. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 10/16/2013

    " I got halfway and completely lost interest in this book. I gave it 2 stars because I battled my way to the end but I didn't really enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve O | 10/13/2013

    " I found myself wanting to like this more. In the end it was all a bit... meh. It felt like the authors wanted to say more but also wanted to cash in on sequels so kept stalling the ending. I may be tempted to pick up the next in the series (though at a discounted price if available). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin | 9/29/2013

    " This is one of the best human drama books I have read in awhile. I'll tweek this when I have more time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xan | 4/23/2013

    " Very NASA technical and a decent read, until the aliens turned out to be dead people... I finished it with hope only to find that of corse there is a part to instead of a satisfying conclusion. Not sure how I feel about that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 4/9/2013

    " Fascinating look at NASA, astronauts, encounters with aliens, etc. Mostly though, I really enjoyed the technical aspects of the story. Will definitely be checking out the sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harish Jonnalagadda | 3/12/2013

    " Was a very good book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Stivers | 2/23/2013

    " I was a little concerned about the literary merit of this book when I saw that the authors were television writers. It's a pretty good book however reminding me a lot of Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C Clarke. Any book that can compare with one of Clarke's is quite a good read by my standards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Tyson | 1/6/2013

    " An excellent book from start to finish. One of the better Sci-Fi books I've read. I had an absolute blast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Faye | 3/13/2012

    " Loved this book, a classic in the making. If you love Arthur C Clarke's Rama series or Greg Bear's Eon series, you will love this, can't wait to get the next book. Can highly recommend this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Indrek Kask | 6/19/2011

    " Awesome space adventure, certainly worth the read. "

    " Amazingly written. I enjoyed it very much. I recommend to all my friends! "

    " I won this as a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of cool sci-fi elements, and a great story. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 4/22/2011

    " Thank you goodreads for chosing me to read your book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mirek | 4/22/2011

    " Very good and fast read (4 1/2 stars).

    I'm not sure I believe some of the physics (e.g. Keanu' Earth's orbit insertion) and plausibility of some of the human behaviors and interactions (general nonchalance exhibited but some of the characters) but I have enjoyed this book very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 4/4/2011

    " YAY!!!!I won this from Goodreads.

    I look forward to the next book in the series... "
