“3 Space craft, 240 colonists, 25 trillion miles and an unexpected discovery that changes everything. Astronomicon: The Beginning follows the human race's intrepid first steps into interstellar space, a colonisation mission to Proxima Centauri. The colossal distance and harsh environment are not all that stand between them and survival.” PV
Science Fiction is my favorite genre for personal consumption. This book has not let me down. There are a lot of twists in the plot and people are dying left and right! Paul Vincent aka @astronomiconSF has created a very believable look into the future of humanity. That future is full of people just like on earth now, radical terrorists and all. The cast of characters are very believable, they have issues and struggles that draw the reader right into the heart of the story. Paul also has the transport ships and terrain well mapped out, everything fits together quite nicely.
Paul has a multi-volume set and I am glad for it. The first book, which is free, was hard to put down at times.
The book is available on Amazon, Smashwords, and other places according to his website: http://astronomicon.co.uk/
I have to mention there were a few spelling errors; that is my job as Chief Word Refiner. The errors were mostly misplaced words or missing words, the kind that spellcheckers commonly miss. The good news is there were very few of them, so the distraction they cause is minor or nil for most people, who are not hyper-spellers.
I give this story 4/5 stars! A pleasure to read! Well worth having in your library!
