This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
You have to feel sorry for an alien who wakes up on Earth after hibernating for millennia only to find his own race gone - destroyed centuries earlier by a ruthless hive of artificial intelligence. All that remains are humans, who have yet to evolve sufficiently to bypass their own selfish greed.
Nonetheless, Zirkos, as if sensing in them the potential they might one day aspire, chooses to befriend a US Vet named Zeke who possesses a rare component he needs to complete his spaceship's revival - a meteor fragment currently buried in the human's head.
Events quickly take on a life of their own as the duo battle to bring humanity to an advanced state of readiness where they can defend themselves from the coming threat of the alien's nemesis - the Nubl.
A remarkable technological development proves the catalyst to launch humanity into a thrilling new age. One where personal safety is no longer an issue and the incessant demand for war has been adroitly side-stepped.
Unfortunately, the Nubl have other plans.
The Pattern Ship
Very good plot and follow through. Lots of innovative future weapons and possibilities for a future that we will never see, I am sorry to say.
Lots of possibilities for more stories along this vein. Will look for more works by Tobias Roote.
Unique SciFi / space story
Very unique story line.
Main character is transferred into something that will surprise you.
The aliens are very different from each other. And one is friendly, the others are not.
I can't wait to read the next book.
If you like space fiction, you will like this one.
