- SCIENCE FICTION OR SOMETHING ELSE? BRIAN ALLEN, EDITOR OF PHENOMENA MAGAZINE (UK)
If ever there was a book that richly deserved to be made into a film it is this one. It starts off at full tilt in a secret mind research lab in Russia where experiment goes horrifically wrong, creating a black hole that devastates the city, leaving a mile-deep anomalous crater.
The hero of the piece, Beau Walker, is a research psychologist who, along with other experts, is coerced into helping the US government work with the Russian authorities to uncover what happened to prevent such an event recurring.
One gets the feeling from the subjects mentioned in the book, shamanism, The Stargate Project, the frequently strange goings on at Ft Meade, Jim Channon’s First Earth Battalion, hemi-synch technology and experiments at the outer edges of consciousness, that this might also be a handbook describing what could actually happen should science and technology succeed in extending the limits of what is possible in terms of consciousness and how this might intersect with our perceived ideas about reality.
Anyone who has seen the film ‘Lucy’ will get the idea, but more so. Well plotted and written, this is an absolute thrill ride of a book that is almost impossible to put down: it might also cause the reader to wonder what really does go on (MK-Ultra for example) in some of the secret government laboratories dotted around the world.
- Kirkus Review “A professor and parapsychology researcher discovers a key to mankind’s evolution or destruction in this debut thriller.Beau Walker is a man without a field. Teaching at a backwater university after being dismissed from a government project because of his ethical concerns and bureaucratic maneuvers on the part of a one-time friend, Walker is an academic pariah until two soldiers appear one day. His former friend needs Walker’s expertise, and the professor—who is haunted by both his empathic abilities and the memory of the one time they failed him—has little choice but to cooperate. In the Russian city of Podol’sk, a project partially based on Walker’s work has gone horribly awry, killing thousands and leaving traces of mysteries that threaten humanity’s scientific understanding. Discovering what occurred, and how to prevent it from happening again, falls on Walker and his new friends…But as secrets and revelations accumulate, the team’s combined knowledge and abilities may be inadequate to stop what’s coming…Joshua has crafted an appealing protagonist in Walker. Short-tempered, kind, thoughtful yet impulsive, he is a flawed but ultimately heroic character, and serves as a narrative linchpin throughout this absorbing story.Deft dialogue, crisp plotting, and a likable central figure make this multidisciplinary scientific adventure an exuberant and involving read.”
- New Consciousness Review “A thrilling read”
- Portland Book Review “Having the right amount of adventure and romance, this crisscrossing genre tale isn’t just a good read, but may also look great on a big screen.”
- Self-Publishing Review “…the book mixes uncommon palettes and manages a masterpiece with it. It is a surprising, suspenseful, and utterly superb read from start to end.”
- Midwest Book Review “…highly recommended, indeed; especially for thriller and sci-fi readers who have become deluged with too much predictability and who seek cutting-edge action, believable protagonists, and action that is solidly intense throughout.”
The Interdimensional Nexus (The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy, Book 3) by Alan Joshua is the fast and heart stopping third book. I didn’t want to see this end. I hope he adds another set to this. So much action, thrills, things wrapped up, and so much goes wide open in this exciting finish. I loved this series. Science, the power of thoughts, the brain, corruption vs goodness, who are we vs the universe, it is a deep book. LOVED it. Sci-fi at it’s finest! Must get!
This is the third and sadly last book in the series. Although there is room for more or a spin off. Just love the Beau character! Thrilling series that I would recommend. No spoilers but a good ending, but would like to read more. This would be a great movie – if done right.
