Multi-genre, multi-volume author, Garry J. Peterson introduces us to the first two books in the Stargate Earth series, Shattered Truth and Alien Disruption:
The existence of alien life on planet Earth has been discussed and argued for centuries. The ancient alien theory phenomenon is now well established as one of the fiercest debates, and the complex issues of “are there or aren’t there…were there or weren’t there” cannot be answered in a simple yes or no.
In book one, SHATTERED TRUTH, ancient-alien hunter Pete Stevenson was the family generational pioneer in the search for the truth that was out there. In what could only be called a “bittersweet” journey, Pete found such evidence, including encounters with friendly temporal aliens, and paid the ultimate price with his life.
Pete’s granddaughter Sara Steele had an intense need to either prove or disprove Grandad Pete’s alien theories; and as her vision became clear, she established and directed the Extraterrestrial Research Team, or ETRT, and her similarly-wired associates became our world’s best shot at understanding alien presence and even determining planet Earth’s survival.
In SHATTERED TRUTH, Sara’s team was introduced to the same friendly temporal aliens that her grandad had met, but this time the alien encounters prevailed in real life-and-death circumstances. Sara had been given the ultimate gift of alien resources and the penultimate truth that she was Earth’s Chosen One.
Shattered Truth is the first of five volumes and a hefty part of the beginning of the book is setting the stage for the action and events to follow. It seems like a slow start in the beginning, because of that. However, there is a fair amount of dialogue and action, and the scenes are pretty well described. If you are intensely interested in the idea of aliens or just want an overview of the ideas and theories, then this is a great book to read.
There were a number of ‘wow’ moments and some funny parts also. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, despite the slow start.
I award a score of 4 stars to “Shattered Truth”.

In book two, ALIEN DISRUPTION, Sara Steele becomes the absolute leader of a multi-talented and intensely focused group of determined disruptors—fighting crime, tyranny, secret societies, suppressed technology, climate change, and even evil aliens. Having been physically rebuilt and now possessing superhuman strength, Sara’s capabilities are taken to the limit.
ALIEN DISRUPTION is a visionary novel giving the reader an alarming apocalyptic glimpse of the future. Then, the reader gets to play, despite the evil aliens, a constructive part in a creative process promoting a unified advance of our human species through a holistic transformation of Spaceship Earth and the people on board for this incredible journey.
The most dynamic relationship storyline in ALIEN DISRUPTION becomes the intense, mutually beneficial, and effective relationship between Sara and the female alien leader, Echo, as well as Sara’s strong physical, mental, and emotional bond with alien warrior Pulse.
Humor, storytelling, and the several flawed but well-intentioned characters give the reader a sense that this story is as much about people, family, and what we all struggle with day after day, as it is about science fiction. Leadership and a strong moral and spiritual fabric are the pillars that define bad behavior and drive good behavior.
The ending of ALIEN DISRUPTION will provide a multi-faceted cliffhanger that will tie books three, four, and five remarkably into the STARGATE EARTH SERIES, and leave the reader anxious and excited to read book three, WARRIORS OF THE GALAXY.
I enjoyed this story quite a bit. Garry covers a lot of ground, many different topics that affect the lives of people on Earth. Aliens, ancient aliens, artificial intelligence, climate change and terrorism, to name a few.
The ETRT group is front and center of the action and strategy to deal with multiple issues, their expansion of the research of Sara’s grandfather has earthshaking consequences.
No spoilers from me. There are fascinating plot twists in the story, the action is detailed and appropriate for a five-volume set. I found the dialogue to be a lot of fun at times, there is a wonderful collection of characters and they come across as quite alive.
The stakes are climbing for the research group, and the inhabitants of Earth.
I award a score of 4.3 stars to “Alien Disruption”.
