Through A Forest of Stars is a work of fiction in the science fiction genre, and is the first book in the Space Unbound series. It was penned by author David C. Jeffrey. Set in a future in which Earth’s atmosphere is quickly losing its ability to sustain life, the book follows geologist Aiden Macallan. Aiden is part of a survey team that explores distant worlds, looking for humanity’s new home, but when the unlikely happens and a potentially viable candidate is found, Aiden’s mission takes on a dangerous new edge as the various factions of humanity begin a deadly race to claim the new home.
Author David C. Jeffrey has crafted an all-engrossing work of fiction with plenty of concept, content and character to offer its readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was the author’s ability to balance the classic approach to science fiction with the fast hook appeal of the modern blockbuster, weaving an intricate storyline of clever concepts and relevant issues alongside dynamic, action-packed scenes and high octane thrills. The dialogue was also very effective, serving to display the unique traits of the characters whilst moving the plot forward in a natural way, and this enables readers to really relate to Aiden and his cohorts and feel their triumph and struggles as the plot events unfold. Overall, I would highly recommend Through A Forest of Stars to fans of compelling page-turners, masterfully conceived plotlines, and for immersive science fiction enthusiasts everywhere.
