The Hidden Ship (Paperback)
I had hours of flights and layovers and The Hidden Ship kept me highly entertained during my travels. The characters are great and the tension never lets up. This was similar to the Scrapyard series Mark wrote, which I also loved. I highly recommend this scifi action adventure book. if you enjoy a fun sci-fi space opera, you'll love this one.- Stuart Church Good, solid science fiction adventure
First, this is a complete sci-fi space adventure story in one book. So satisfying. I would not have bought it if it was part of a series. This is not just another humans vs. aliens tale. There are twists that make it stand out from the common. Unfortunately, I can't be more specific without spoiling your discoveries as you read. I was always entertained. There's never a slow spot. If the author has any more standalone novels, I'll buy them.- Henry Kline Good classic science fiction like the masters
Science fiction, adventure, action, fun scifi, a hero, villains, more action, sex, betrayal, good guys, underdogs, arrogant alien buttheads all present and accounted for - Amazon Customer Wild, action-packed science fiction adventure
In the beginning, it was a bit implausible, kind of a cross between an EMP disaster theme and BSG New Caprica, then it began to morph into a version of Independence Day. However, the author kept the story moving, the dialogue was believable and crisp, the action scenes were a bit over the top - but aren't they all in these days of CGI?. I haven't read his books before although I've had the Junkyard Ship series in my reading list for a while, this was a good test of how well I would like his writing style and I can clearly say he passed with flying colors For the grammar police, no obvious errors or context issues, the words flowed smoothly and he kept the story moving along. It reads as a stand-alone book but there are possibilities for future expansion.- Ann Engel Got better and better...
Love Mark Wayne McGinnis- his writing is the best in the fun sci-fi world. Period. Always a good story and plot but it's most often the wonderful way he portrays his characters that I love most. They always are genuine, good and evil. You hate the bad guys more and more just as you really root for the good guys. This was a fun, more local to Earth, than space tale of heroism and friendships across species that was a kick in the pants adventure that seemed to get better and better as the story progressed. Thanks for a great time. Highly recommended.- Belleraphon.
