#Log00237 – Ahmed M. (verified Class Three) Recycling Operator#
There is no such thing as Heaven or Hell, not when you’ve seen what I’ve seen.

  I’m a savager you see. Yes, yes, a lonely job. My father told me that solitude brings Allah closer. I used to believe that. I don’t think I ever will now.

I guess being Muslim does conflict with what I said about Heaven and Hell, doesn’t it. But Heaven and Hell is a matter of perspective, you’d say. I know it sounds weird, but I saw something – it threw my thoughts about what is possible all over the place. I don’t even know what I believe in anymore.

I’ve seen all kinds of things surrounding planetoids, post-pirate battles and colonial wars. And yes, that includes frozen corpses, or parts of corpses. I’m so used to the sight of machinery and variable metals that these bodies become part of what I salvage. I’ve taken them manually before, thinking how much this metal is worth on the market, and then I have to take them out again, but carefully, so they don’t shatter in the airlock. Using Crab Claw (which is the auto way) they shred into a million pieces. I say a little prayer for them when I make mistakes like that.

TonyHeredia: I've been reading science fiction and fantasy for many years and I still don't think I've read a story like this before. It is realistic, lusty and techy all at the same time. It jumps back and forth in time giving the reader two different versions of the same man. I found myself reading for h...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

Cat32: I enjoyed the good versus evil aspect of this novel, especially as the protagonist has to discover how to access that good to save his family. I sat down to begin reading this story, and only put it down long enough to eat with the family! the book does an excellent job of building the suspense, ...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Diana123: This is a very intense and intriguing story. I love how it is mysterious and secretive and I have really enjoyed it. The moment when Kris meets Max and the way Elsa actually “introduces” him, by making Kris look at the picture on her iPad first is a scene that has stayed etched into my mind (amon...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.
