Product description

Product Description

In 2126, the United Kingdom has assumed a leadership role in space exploration. There is a colony on Mars, UK-built ships are exploring the solar system, and the UK-designed Sagan Space Platform is confidently asserted to be the largest man-made object ever placed in earth orbit. That feeling of confidence in human advancement is seriously tested when a 5.2-kilometre-long starship suddenly emerges from a temporal anomaly out beyond Saturn and parks itself in orbit near the platform. A further shock comes after the starship's computers learn to translate earth's languages and it becomes possible to communicate with her crew. The ship is called Warrior, and far from carrying potential invaders from somewhere in deep space, her captain reveals that the ship was built in earth orbit, and has just returned from a 15-year exploration mission that, after accounting for extensive travel in "jumpspace," took 86,895 years in real time.

Returning touches on fear of the unknown, and the lengths to which some people will go to retain power and dominate others "for their own good," or to overcome cognitive dissonance when the world of reality suddenly disagrees with their long-held beliefs. From the crew of the huge ship, to a former evangelist who's been President of the United States for 29 years, to a 15-year-old girl from Denver, who finds the simple act of scolding someone using the wrong Ham radio channel sets her on course for the strangest adventure of her young life, this is a fascinating science fiction adventure, with a profound warning for today.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 23 April 2017
By Che'ri - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A crew in a spaceship travels thousands of years into the future and returns home to a vastly changed world. That peaked my interest and I couldn't wait to see how the crew would react to a changed world and how the world would view them! This story started out good and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. But, half way through the book I had to stop, I couldn't go on. I deleted it from my Kindle. The author's beliefs are so deeply infringing in his writing that I was actually disgusted. His view on religion is that every Christian a fanatic, and all pastors are only in it for the money....I find this appalling. He could have left all of that out and focused more on the crew returning home after thousands of years. He ruined this book for me and I will not be reading any more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique 21 May 2017

Format: Kindle Edition
Well written, very believable, very hopefully not prophetic. We meet eternal vigilance to insure we do not fall victims to flowery tongued orators.
