Joshua Calvert, Xinth and Hortat would be very disappointed in you for making such a childish statement. As for the book it was a struggle to finish. Picks up right where book 1 ended. It was like the spaceship engines wouldn't turn over. The decision making by the main characters was head shaking at times. You stupid or something? Stupid is as stupid does. Astronaut Filio Amorosa does stupid for sure. Using jumper cables to jump start the monolith? What? To much filler bogged the book down. Pages of how the flight was from Antarctica and what the traffic is like in Manhattan. Lets go already! The book had its good moments. "If you'll excuse me, I have to explain to the president that some Martians are living at the South Pole" HA! Book one was a solid 4 stars this was a generous 3 stars.

    Wow! Don’t you just love it when a book in a series picks up where it left off? The first book in this series : Fossil 1, (yup go and read it!) left me gripping the edge of a cliff. This book right here?!?! LITERALLY picks up where it left off. It roped me right back up and Into the grips of a sci-fi thrill ride with a sprinkle of anthropology. Lots of twists that i didn’t see coming. Pano stressed me out the entire time. I just Love the relationship between Pano and Devenworth, they work so wel Wow!

    Gave up Don’t quit on books often but this was simply too dense. Unnecessary elements to the story—3 book series which likely could have been one book.

    There is great science fiction (like The Peacemaker's Code) , and there is mediocre science fiction -- this was the latter. There were too many instances in Fossil 2 where the dialogue and activity were drawn out way too long (and unnecessary) to where I thought "Enough, already". The actions (and thought-process) taken by law enforcement, astronauts, and government officials often defied logic that would be associated with their profession. Fossil 1 showed promise, Fossil 2 was erratic. There is great science fiction (like The Peacemaker's Code) , and there is mediocre science fiction -- this was the latter.

    This second book of the series got somewhat drawn out and convoluted, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first. I still plan to read the final book of the series to see how everything plays out between the two species occupying Earth together.

    2nd in series What a delight to read! I especially loved the characters and the constant twists and turn of the story line from book 1 and the seamless continuation into book 2. Can' wait to read book 3 when it becomes available! Your style of writing and attention to every detail is refreshing and reminds me other great sci-fi authors, such as Clarke, Asimov, Herbert and Bear to name a few. Please keep writing, your imagination and creativity will certainly lead you to even greater adventures! Be 2nd in series What a delight to read!

    Enjoyed it immensely! For me this was a new type of story set in the future but involving the far distant past. I found the writing excellent and storylines plausible even if not believable with what we currently know about the universe. Looking forward to more from this author.

    Excellent Still hard to follow the way each chapter jumps to a different character but worth sticking with til the end. Whenever I read a book that gets heavily philosophical, as this one does, I ponder the ideas expressed. Well,I'll leave it to you future readers to draw your own conclusions.

    Great book What a fascinating read. It captured my interest and imagination. It was unlike any book I have read. No rehash of tired plots. I read book 1 and 2 and enjoyed both. I did not skim, which to me, indicates my deep involvement in the story. It will stay with me for a long time. Well done.

    This is a solid follow-on to book 1, it picks up where the first book ends, barely taking a breath and changes on. This isn’t a stand-alone volume. That said it is well written and completes the story with an optimistic note. Overall, a nice job, if you read book 1, read book 2, you won’t be disappointed. Fossil 3 is still in the future, but given the description, I’ll pass.

    Started well but lost my interest There were too many plot twists that were very contrived, unbelievable and arbitrary .after a while it seemed like the author was spinning a madlib plot wheel.

    A unique message to all humans Was a technical read. Very informative and ended with a joint happiness for all who have and who will live on planet earth. Enjoyed and recommend to all who love hard sci fi

    A great second book I almost didn’t read the second book due to the not so great reviews. I am genuinely glad I did and look forward to the third installment. I thought the plot and plot twists were great.

    Mark Phillips

    Well done but propaganda This book is well written. The plot is a bit predictable, not much science, and the ever-so-wise alien shtick is thread bare. As much as I like the word smithing, the book is merely propaganda for “green elite” boasting “The Science.”

    Great read The second book in the series kept the action coming and moved the story along at a very fast pace. Can’t wait for the next one.

    An interesting read, full of twists and turns and in some cases a little too hard to follow. It is, however, a good sci-if after all so it can be forgiven. A great holiday read.

    Yup. Another good one It was interesting how the author was able to relate such a lot of imagination into his story. I enjoyed it.

    A great second installment. I like reading stories that show that someone has proofread them. Book 2, like Book One, is tightly written. And the story line isn’t bad either.

    Good read The two books kept me totally entertained from start to finish. Joshua Calvert is an exceptional writer. I’m looking forward to book three.

    Interesting premise What a great story with an amazing ending. Great characters, lots of action and twists. A must read if you’re sick of petty politics. Two thumbs up!
