Ahhhh, you think you know but at the moment of truth would you open up your heart and hands to save another in need? From planets far, far away these opportunities, or dilemmas as you might see them, and many more are presented to one young man who sets out to save his planet, his family, and maybe even himself.
The descriptive scenes captivate the imagination and one truly feels a part of the story. The Truth Beyond the Sky has a rather fast but even pace that is easily followed and the narrator gives an incredible performance. My thanks to the author, Andrew Crusoe, for providing this audiobook for me to review. It was a pleasure to listen to and I look forward to the next installment in the series.
Ok, now that I got that out This book embodied the wonder of space and yet inspired a connectedness to the cosmos that all of us should feel. After all, we are all made of star dust. Aren't we all searching for the truth of what's out there? Whether it be a personal truth or a truth of origin?

My heart went out to Zahn. I couldn't imagine the terror a small child must feel whilst watching his beloved mother lifted away and disappear. The hole that type of uncertainty can leave is undeniable. The character development was so well done with Zahn. Honestly, it was well done with all the characters. The descriptions of space travel and the different planets was mesmerizing!
I found myself able to make clear images of these places in my head.
The Jeff Healey Band - Life Beyond The Sky Şarkı Sözü
It was fascinating. Space is such a place of wonder for me already. I wish I could jump on a ship and see what's out there for myself. Some elements I really enjoyed were the descriptions of the different technologies. Especially Navika the ship. I really liked that the ship had it's own awareness and was alive.
It brought a very interesting aspect to the story. Especially since our tech is becoming more and more a part of our lives. It brings an interesting side to the AI moral debate. After all, is something a machine or a person at that point? I have found with Sci-fi novels it can go one of two ways. They are either amazing or horrible. This book had all the elements you need for it to be successful.
It had just enough explanation of the tech that it felt believable instead of ridiculously impossible. It brought in actual aspects of science and used them in believable and possible ways. Who hasn't wondered about wormholes? The characters were humanoid and therefore relatable. At the same time, there are creature descriptions that are not humanoid but are so well done they ignite curiosity.

This is a great original scifi story with a well-thought-out universe. During the course of the book, the travelers find themselves visiting different worlds and encountering strange new beings. There was never a moment where I suspected any race was copied from other scifi such as Romulans, Klingons.
Everyone seemed to be original and fresh, and I truly appreciated that in this story. I was immediately drawn in by the vivid descriptions at the beginning of the story. Just like with Star Trek, I accept these moments and move on. It does not get bogged down by this language, and I felt it added nicely to the scifi effect. Zahn is your typical young guy who desperately wants to help.
He was a little easily convinced to travel alongside an unkown alien, just as one might expect from a headstrong young man. His father made more sense in his worry and questioning, but he was unable to make his son see reason. I felt both characters were very realistic in this sense. My only complaint is that Zahn had to be attracted to the female Asha once she comes aboard ship. I get tired of the same old thing happening between major characters. Oonak had to be my favorite character. His first appearance was almost comical and brought a smile to my face. I also enjoyed that he drove his sentient ship through the power of his mind.
All in all, this is a great scifi adventure story.
“Beyond the Sky” explores conspiracy vs hoax | Slice of SciFi
It has new worlds to explore, and it does not feel in any way that it copies from other major scifi franchises Star Trek, Star Wars. This story is new and exciting and I enjoyed the escape from my own world while reading it. I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Feb 18, Art rated it really liked it.
I actually read this book several years ago and kind of forgot about it until I realized that more books in the same series had come out. After reading the second one and then reviewing this one I am pleased to say that I think reading them was definitely worth my time.
This the first book was good, and I think that the second book was even better.

There were moments when the characters felt less than real, but overall I felt like it was both an engaging and creative take on the universe of science fiction.
Science Fiction is no longer a new genre of literature that is waiting for the world to notice it. However, I think that this book series and its author are. I look forward to reading the last one. I've been mulling over my feelings about The Truth Beyond the Sky for a few days now. It's been quite a while since the last time I read a science fiction epic.
It took me a bit to get back into the groove. Following stories like these is never easy at first but, once you are fully immersed, they have the power to drag you away into their worlds.
Searching for technical civilizations
That was true in this instance as well. Once I was really into the story, it was tough to look away. What's really interesting about this book is how mu I've been mulling over my feelings about The Truth Beyond the Sky for a few days now. What's really interesting about this book is how multi-layered it is.
At its base, this is a book about a boy who is in search of his mother. Quite good actually, even if the romance parts feels a little forced. Decent sci-fi drama about a documentary film maker researching the alien abduction phenomena with an eye towards debunking, then ends up embroiled in something he cannot explain away. Beyond The Sky was good, the pacing was good, the acting was decent, and the ending seemed to make sense.
I liked Chris' progression in the movie, from skeptic and non believer to believer. Emily helps Chris become a believer through her experiences. One of my gripes about the movie is that the acting was decent but not excellent. My other gripe is with the way the ship looked, it just looked too CGI-ish to me. I did, however, like how the aliens looked. The movie did a good job with how the aliens acted and looked. Overall, it was GOOD. This is a classic example of a great idea that got lost in translation. I liked the premise of an amateur documentary maker with personal issues wanting to conduct an investigation with the aim of debunking alien abductions as having other explainable causes.
The lead character Chris as played by Ryan Carnes is depicted as a none to bright chap with dubious ethics and comes complete with a bumbling sidekick Brent played by Claude Duhamel who is the cameraman and comedic relief. Together they manage to upset the locals during which they encounter Emily played by Jordan Hinson. Up to this point events had followed a coherent pattern from here on in it feels like bits are missing.
