Heaven’s Shadow

Heaven's Shadow Heaven’s Shadow by David S. Goyer
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I did not really like this book. It almost got a one star rating. I was expecting some first contact story where science and exploration was in the front seat.

The book is almost completely devoid of any real science. It contains a good amount of fairly ridiculous and illogical plot elements like aliens that grab “candidates” but cannot control them so they kill some of the next “candidates” and paranoid government operatives planting nukes on the starship of Earth’s first contact…what the f…?

To me the entire book more resembles a bad script for a B-movie out of the 70’s. There’s a second book in the series coming out. I doubt that I will read it.
