Jonathan Brown is now published on Kindle the paperback is soon to follow. A different twist from End Point but but a little more science fiction.
4 out of 5 stars
An inventive take on alien interference in mankind's history. As strange objects appear on Earth, teams of scientists and military investigate. As evidence mounts that they are alien in origin, our first response is to try and destroy them. Through brief interludes in the story, it is revealed that the objects are in fact part of a presence that is watching us, but what do they want? When one lands near the location of the fabled Ark of the Covenant from the Bible, it gets really interesting. Does the Ark hold answers? As more artifacts are discovered sprinkled through Earth's history, it becomes clear that the aliens have been tampering with us. Can we find out before they tamper again? Enjoyed the writing style, and a good read throughout. Recommended.

Absolutly great book. From start to end it was hard to put it down. Yes it made me late for work a few times but hey, so was my boss after I told her about the book.

End Point is a decent sci fi novel with some interesting ideas and concepts that kept me turning the page, even when the writing did not.
In End Point a team of scientists and military men discover alien artifacts appearing around the globe and causing odd things to happen around them. As they explore each artifact they attempt to uncover the mystery of what is really happening on earth. Are they being invaded? Or just toyed with?
The premise had me really interested in this book, and it started off really strong. There’s some great moments in this book, especially when things really start going wonky. The problem is everything that happens in between, or for that matter, doesn’t happen. The book is a series of events, strung together by loooooong bouts of dialogue that primarily take place in a military debriefing. Each briefing scene goes something like this:
“Here’s what we’re gonna go. I’m gonna pass it off to someone else to explain.”
“Hi. I’m someone else. Here’s what we’re going to do. I’m gonna pass it off to someone else to explain.”
“Hi. I’m also someone else. I can’t tell you everything because it’s confidential.”
Naturally, that eventually got pretty boring. I think Breakspear has some great stories rumbling around in his head, but he could use some work on how they’re delivered.
Great sci fi setting
Too much explanation that explained nothing
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review
by Ariana Antonio
Now retired from real work, I spend my time travelling with my wife of forty four years and when not doing that I attempt to write.
Born in Nottingham a long time ago, I have spent time at sea and some years in the Army which I left in 1992. Since then I have worked in several engineering companies such as Rolls Royce and BAE Systems. This work has taken us to the Middle East and most places in Europe.
My interests? Military history and science fiction, not necessarily in that order.
We have two sons and three grand children, one of whom produced the prize winning cover illustration for Jonathan Brown.
