Through The Whole Of Space-Time (Book 1: Mysteries, Secrets, and Lies)
By Dean Rosenthal
Welcome to my first review of a space opera novel!
Fast forward 1000 years into the future, we get to meet Dr. Keith Carmadden. He is of the human race but no longer resides on Earth. He gets chosen to participate in the gathering of the brightest minds in the galaxy. What he expects to be an intellectual endeavor takes a turn for the worse when an unfriendly alien is introduced to the group.
It took me a bit to get into the story. At first, I found Dr. Carmadden to be a bit full of himself. In the first chapter he goes on about how disappointed he is in his species, but as the story unfolds the reader gets to indulge in his thoughts to get to know him better.
I absolutely love all the drama in the story, think soap opera drama. Who is sleeping with who, who is backstabbing who, who has their own agenda, etc. It is just so juicy. It is definitely geared toward an adult audience, and the ending leaves you hanging for the next installment!
The story is well written and fast paced. The alien species are beautifully described. I can just imagine myself walking on the space ship with all of them. It's an exciting tale with lots of drama!
Thank you to the author for my copy of this book.
Dean Rosenthal twists speculative fiction inside out. His new wave sci-fi looks ahead at possibilities of tomorrow—trickster machines, synthetic people, travel in the wink of an eye—yet takes inspiration from classic space opera of the 60s and 70s. As an explorer of the human condition, he considers himself an archeologist of consciousness, and writes for those who sometimes feel out of place on this peculiar planet of ours.
