Have Wormhole, Will Travel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Vampires? No Such Thing.
Aliens, though, that's something else.
They've been here, living quietly among us, since before the Industrial Revolution.
Their goal: To ensure we never leave our Solar System. We have a bad habit of wiping out indigenous populations, and theirs is the nearest inhabited planet to ours.
So when a scientist at Sydney University harnesses the power of wormholes, making interstellar travel a virtual walk in the park, one of these tall, pale-skinned aliens, Callum, is forced to choose: destroy us, or help us survive the inevitable Armageddon.
8 billion Earthlings, and our survival is in the hands of one guy - alien - meant to wipe us out.
a Great read
This book was great fun to read. Now where did Bram Stoker get his inspiration from Dracula? Aliens! Aliens... that have been here for many hundreds of years, checking that we're not about to develop space travel and do to their planets, what we've done to native races on Earth... turn up and wipe them out.
It's got a bit of everything in it; it's a bit of a Sci-fi, with scenes from another planet, a bit of romance (across species!), oh... and a race against time to save the Earth. This book weaves the occasional fact among an added layer of fiction quite well - it makes it believable enough to enjoy the ride. Also - I'm from Sydney, so I enjoyed all the 'sight-seeing' in this book - almost like watching a picturesque movie made in my home town. A good fun read, that's quite unique.
This is the third book I've read by this author, since I discovered him through `Goodreads'... and I daresay I'll read some more of his books.
