Product Description

Harry Heron: Into the Unknown continues the exciting story begun in Harry Heron: Midshipman's Journey, the flagship book in the series. A freak accident on board the HMS Spartan during a sea battle with the French navy in 1804 catapults Midshipman Harry Heron and his shipmates Ferghal O’Connor and Danny Gunn four hundred years into the future, landing them on the NECS Vanguard, flagship of the World Treaty Organisation Fleet. While Captain Blackwood and Major Heron sort out the mystery and determine whether the young men are alive or dead, Harry and his friends are faced with the challenge of learning new roles aboard a spaceship. Just as they have found their footing, they are called upon to assist the Fleet in a rescue mission on the planet Pangaea, giving them the opportunity to prove that their unique skills from the past are still very relevant in the far distant future.

5.0 out of 5 stars preferring to keep an open mind and enjoy what a good writer has created 18 March 2016

HARRY HERON : INTO THE UNKNOWN.

I’m not bound by any genre in particular, preferring to keep an open mind and enjoy what a good writer has created. To me it is important to become part of the action.

The last time I travelled with Harry Heron was back in the 1800’s when he was finding his feet in the Royal Navy on a voyage to Australia.

Into the Unknown had me fighting alongside Harry Heron and Ferghal O’Connor against the French Fleet and then the unexpected happens. The writer throws his reader into a most amazing account of an accidental time warp. This would be a psychological trauma for the strongest of men.

The three youngsters, Harry, Ferghal and the powder monkey Danny Gunn find themselves on a strange kind of ship in a strange place. They’ve just been catapulted 400 years into the future, and this is a ship unlike anything the boys are used to. It doesn’t even look like a ship. Not only must they adjust to the advances in technology and society, they must also cope with being in the midst of a new struggle between cometing ideologies and conflicting interests.

It’s mind boggling and interesting reading to discover how these boys cope. How they shake off much of the life they knew and apply themselves to new challenges. And there are many. There are times when Harry wrestles with his sad memories and then there are times when Harry, as young as he is, saves the day in difficult situations.

All in all a gripping read that keeps you spellbound as you have to find out what comes next. You can’t miss the tense moments, the sad moments, the amusing moments and the exhilaration of a full scale war amongst the stars.

A Harry Heron adventure which can’t be ignored. Harry never ceases to amaze me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harry Heron time warped adventure 31 March 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Harry Heron and his two compatriots, Ferghal and Danny, are manning a thirty-two pound gun on board the HMS Spartan during a sea battle with the French Navy off the coast of Île de France. The year is 1804. Suddenly, strange objects strike the Spartan and the French vessel, completely destroying the latter. Harry, Ferghal and Danny together with their gun disappear without a trace, only to reappear on board the spacecraft NECS Vanguard some four-hundred years in the future.

Assimilated into the crew of the Vanguard, the three become part of a force on its way to the distant planet of Pangaea to re-establish the friendly Confederate’s control over the planetary colony which has fallen under the control of the evil Consortium. On becoming aware of the presence of Harry, Ferghal and Danny on board the Vanguard, the wicked Dr Johnstone seeks to get his hands on them in order to conduct medical experiments on these four-hundred year old, living specimens.

A galactic battle ensues between the forces of good and evil above Pangaea. Harry and his shipmates form part of group sent to retake the settlements on planet for the Confederation. Faced by setbacks and challenges they are finally confronted by major failure of the technology available to them in this alien world. Can long forgotten skills save them?

What of Harry’s grief-stricken family, back home in Ireland, when they hear of the disappearance of their son? Harry’s father, Major Heron, sets off on a quest to locate his lost son and his friends. A strange, recurring dream troubles the Major – what does it mean? How can Harry’s father, living during the industrial revolution, find a method of communicating with his son over a time gap of four-hundred years ……..?

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not going to try to pigeon hole it as SYFI or Fantasy it's a bit of everything I enjoy. I'm a big fan of Pope and Alexander 26 March 2017

High praise for this Book! I'm not going to try to pigeon hole it as SYFI or Fantasy it's a bit of everything I enjoy. I'm a big fan of Pope and Alexander and this book had some of that. I enjoy a good space opera and there was that too. Toss in some science fantasy and this book came out a winner.
Another big point for me is its a stand alone novel. The author need not do another book to make it a series and his only thought or vision.
On the other hand it can also pick up again after our young hero's finish there education and blast off to other adventures.
It's not deep writing but it's entertaining and will hold your attention on a rainy day like it did Mine!
I really enjoyed the read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent novel from Patrick G. Cox 26 March 2016
By Taffspride - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I started reading ‘Harry Heron: Into The Unknown’ I found it difficult to put the story down. Already intrigued by the title, I found myself becoming more and more absorbed by the way the Patrick transported his reader between time periods, not an easy thing to do without being confusing.
When in the second chapter the reader is seamlessly taken into a bewildering new world along with Harry, Ferghal and Danny, I found it very believable. It is time travel at its best.
I enjoyed the way the reader could be in no doubt as to which era Harry found himself in. The dialog was so well written that this reader knew easily whether we were in the past or the future.
In my opinion ‘Harry Heron: Into The Unknown’ is a novel to be enjoyed by young adult and older readers alike.
