    Great first book The first book was great, and the second book was good but the afterword warned me. After 30 pages, I am putting it down. The builder has become jarjar binks

    I read the first two books of this series a little while back, liked the first one, the second not so much. This one I quit on about a 1/4 way in. It's that bad.

    Brilliant Trilogy - Total new take on alien invasion and man's distant past It's not often, as an avid reader of the sci fi and alien history genre, that I experience a totally new take on the idea nor the monolith of Mars given such an inventive twist. Joshua has managed to wrap a story of man's pre historical distant past into one of his distant future with such talent, creating a tale with breathless depth and breadth filled with action and emotion.

A thoroughly enjoyable table that I read from book to book without stopping over 2 days! This trilogy is definitely one to be enjoyed by every lover of a well written romping good story and I look forward to more from this brilliant young writer

    So good! This was such a good read it brought light to current political issues we’ve had to deal with in today’s society. So many great conversational points. The author did a fantastic job mingling sci-fi and politics with a thrilling aspect to it all. I enjoyed the playback of the main event, the intensity of what could happen to be the end of Hortat increased with each chapter. An enjoyable and masterfully written trilogy.

    Heartwarming story. I’ve been hooked into end of days sci-do for a few years now. I thought I’d give this series a try and really liked books 1 and 2. Book 3 was not as interesting to me and was hard to get into. They’re pretty long books, and I’ll admit I almost put #3 down several times. I am so glad I finished it because the ending was spectacular. Definitely worth your time to read!

    Action to the end Really different feel from the other two books. Action packed and thought provoking but is in need of character development and complexity. Overall, I enjoyed the journey and the characters I met along the way. Every now and again, a character that doesn't seem to reflect the straight white male point of view would be refreshing and bring clarity to the political aspects of the tale.

    Book three review Book three hats a little confusing and hard to follow near the end. Over all, together with all three books the story is creative and for the most part plosiable. I did like how the author finally explained how the oxygen content didn't just change but the builders DNA changed to allow for reduced oxygen. I was wondering how that happened. Overall story I would recommend to any science fiction reader. Book three review Book three hats a little confusing and hard to follow near the end.

    Fossil 3 I am blown away by this story! I never imagined a sci- film novel to be so entertaining and still manage to incorporate all of this planets people and political issues with such ease. The author is indeed gifted with an imagination capable of engaging the reader to imagine a new world full of possibilities and hope for a wonderful new future.

    Even more confused than I was after the first 2 books. It could have been the state of my mind though. Sometimes I think it is. The whole story is very absorbing and well written. Appreciate and hope the future does include something like the Human Foundation, god knows we need immediate help to save the planet. What's up with the politicians anyway? Don't they care about life? Even more confused than I was after the first 2 books. It could have been the state of my mind though. Sometimes I think it is.

    Marvelous This was a great story. A bit of imagination that keeps you enthralled and eventually reveals the truth of the human spirit.... Hope. It dwells in each of us to some degree. Some more than others.

    Fantastic reading This three book series was unique and a strong condemnation of our current world societies. For anyone needing a succinct and thoughtful summary of the human condition, this story will help.

    The future? Are we going in the right direction to live in a world of hate and war? We need to see the future that we are creating. Stop the violence and be humans together instead of the riots and bloodshed.

    Great reads! Loved all three books though the first two actually finish the story and this one picks up a couple of decades later. Great mysteries, adventure, and thrills intermixed with some telling social commentary. Long winded at times but a great summer read.

    Fossil 3 Compelling and a joy of discovery after discovery. Well written and the delivery well constructed. I’ll find other books by this author and devour them as I did all 3 of this set.

    Wonderful series I don't normally enjoy a series of books but this one was really super enjoyable. The story needed more than one book in order to tell the story sufficiently and end on a positive note. Anyone who enjoys sci fi will like this story a great deal.

    Definitely the most boring of the three books. What made the first two books interesting to read completely disappeared in the third one, becoming a sort of investigative book that I could not wait to finish. You can definitely stay away from this third chapter!

    Compared to the first two books in the series, I felt like this one moved a lot slower and was harder to be engaged in. As a “closure” on the series, it adds a completely new plot that is more confusing and completely different than where I believed the first two books were leading.

    Strange Story... Some reviews have accused the writer of being "liberal" & dismissed the book. Have they not read & watched Star Trek? I found volumes 1, 2 & 3 containsing excellent new ideas. Vol 3's structure is odd & challenging. Twist & turns abound. Enjoy 😉. Strange Story... Some reviews have accused the writer of being "liberal" & dismissed the book.

    A well crafted, intimate story. Excellent no nonsense scifi Joshua Calvert has come a long way, and has really upped his game with this series. GREAT characters, excellent use of time and perspective, deep characters and a far reaching plot. Read it!

    Great action and plot line throughout At first, it seemed difficult to follow the different plot lines but found myself flying through each book to see what was going to happen next. The series was a great read. Thank you!

    Change from sci-fi to political commentary This book departs from the previous to be more of a political commentary on the recent USA situation. Very disappointing.

    Not as good as the first two books but it did have some interesting points. I doubt I would read a 4th novel in the series as Calvert seems to have gotten away from what made the first two so good.
