Mr. Wilson has created an intense SCI-FI suspense novel of such dramatic proportions that you will be very sad when you finish. Why? This is because his characters are so engaging that you will miss them when you are not reading about their exploits. Victor, Vernon, Ronald, Eunice, Sibekk, Suris, and the aliens on the planet Dabenar will become fast friends in your imagination. I now miss Victor’s temper and the teenager’s strong vernacular as they deal with each other’s personalities as they unravel the details of a mystery that changes how they deal with life.
This novel is set in the 1970’s in Northern California among a group of African-American teenagers who embark on an unbelievable adventure of galactic intensity. Mr. Wilson shows us his erudition in electronics, American history, and astrophysics, black culture, and all things Motown. His novel is truly a delight to read and very enjoyable. The science portion of the novel is believable and intense.
I may be one of the reviewers who will not be too objective, because I personally know Mr. Wilson. The basis of this novel is an intense family love that spans all time and culture, human or alien. A daughter’s love for the father she never knew and how a group of young African-American young men interact and attempt to love in the growing years of teenage angst makes this novel one of the best I have read. I am a fan of Star Trek and all things SCI-FI and I must admit I look forward to Mr. Wilson’s next sequel, or should I say, prequel as maybe Ra’as and Sulbrin embark of explaining just whose skeleton lays in the cave on Shumen Mountain.

I'm pleased to see that there are others of African descent in North America who are committed to promoting strong values and showing our communities in a postive and progressive light. I am an African-Canadian woman born and raised in Montreal where we have even fewer opportunities to create cultural products that reflect the realities of our communities, especially when those products stray from mainstream ideas of what sells. I congratulate you on the publishing of your book and wish you all the best in your future endeavours, both personal and professional.
Thanks so much for the kind words:) I checked out your website, looks very interesting. Good luck with your book!

The book is very, very exciting! I am almost to the end of it and I fine myself right in the middle of the conflicts. You have done a wonderful job and I hope the book soars.
