Publisher's Summary

Exploring New Earth should be a thrilling undertaking. Instead, the more the colonists learn about the planet, the more alarmed they become. Alien ruins hint at a species who fought great wars among themselves and disappeared centuries ago.  

When Connor Gates discovers a hidden bunker, he finds something he never expected. Everything the colonists have learned about New Earth’s previous inhabitants is wrong. Connor must race to unravel the mystery. The colonists must face the possibility that they are not alone and that New Earth was never theirs for the taking.

Another great book in the series

I enjoyed this audiobook just as I did the ones earlier in the series. The storyline is getting very interesting, for sure.

Slow unraveling of New Earth mysteries-Disappoints

Emphasis on slow. A book so short shouldn't have such a slow start. One of the mysteries in the book involve wondering why the main character, Conner is Mayor as well as principal explorer. We gradually discover(with Conner) mysteries associated with the NEIIS (New Earth Indigenous Intelligent Species) apparently pronounced "Newies" and Ryclar. The archaeological techniques using thermite explosives, shovels and hands seem more akin to Schliemman(who used similar techniques to excavate Troy in 1875) than a space-faring archaeologist. Disappointing.

WOW! I love this series

I have been reading the First Colony series from Genesis on. I just finished book seven. In all the books I am eagerly awaiting the next paragraph. Mr. Ken Lozito is an incredible author and I am so very glad that he bailed on the IT security gig. His art is writing. God has blessed this man with a wife and children but also with the ability to take the reader away in an awesome journey. I believe that Mr. Lozito will be writing for many many years and I look forward to the next book.
