Sometimes You Get More Than You Asked For

Reviewed by Frank Sollie originally for Amazon

All I wanted was a good sci-fi story. Something to read in bed while trying to get sleepy. With this book you`ll never get any sleep. At least not until you`re finished reading it. Maybe not then either. This is the kind of story you keep thinking of. Reading this book was like an entire season of Star Trek (it`s far from Star Trek, but the story is equally strong). Believable characters and well written. This is the sort of book that sticks to your "memory chip" after reading it. You picture the book in your head while reading, which is not unusual, but it stays there. You keep thinking about the book, picturing scenes from the book. And when you finish reading it, you want more. As this is Volume 1, I think we`re in for more great stories by Michael J. Foy.

This was a very gratifying comment from a reader who has since become a friend. But as all my readers know I respond to their feedback and and always appreciate their interest. And it never hurts to cultivate more friends. :-)
