What would you do if you found an ancient spaceship?

Michael Freeman is a disabled veteran who had just been fired from his mind-numbing cubicle job, which allowed his opportunistic girlfriend to dump him. Now, he only wants to spend some time in his grandfather's mountain cabin to unwind away from the drudgery of daily life with a cold beer in his hands.

Standing in his way is an ancient spaceship with an emotional AI, nanites that have invaded his body, an international crime syndicate, a suicidal FBI agent on a vigilante mission, Islamic terrorists... and this is just the beginning.

What can one man do when faced with insurmountable odds? Call it quits? Or… call some of his old army buddies and blow those obstacles to smithereens.

Can he become more than he had ever dreamed, reaching further than any man before? Staying under the radar of the powers that be while righting a few wrongs of the modern world.

He is sure of three things:

1. He really doesn’t want to follow the rules anymore... aside from his own.

2. Space is the ultimate frontier, and he had been given a turnkey technology to reach it—if they let him.

3. Those that want to hurt him and the people he cares about will rue the day they were born.

You do not always get what you wish for… sometimes, you get one hell of a lot more.

I'm hooked (Reviewed at Ch.9 pt.1)

Reviewed at: Book 1 - Chapter 9 Pt.1

Modern Earth is dying.

The sky is burning, the poles are melting, the sea and land are full of garbage. Humans are fighting among themselves while they kill the very land they stand on. The wise ones look to the stars and see a path, but the masses are too foolish to look up with them.


Among the masses, a soldier, wounded and thrown away finds a ancient alien spaceship and finally looks up too...and he is disgusted in what he sees. He thinks to himself, "If the people of Earth refuse to see what's happening then I can't change that. But I will try to save as many as I can."

Normally, Syfy isn't my cup of tea, but this story is starting to change that. It takes a realistic approach to the syfy genre and add in a relatable, real feeling Mc, antagonists that make you grind your teeth in anger, and flushed out supporting characters and you got yourself a story that keeps dragging you back for more. So far the story has got me hooked and I can't wait to read more.

Not breaking any new ground here but a rollicking actioner with plenty of scope for long term development. Strangely I have a kurtherian gambit vibe going with it, a not terrible possible stylistic progenitor. Solidly OP main with enough caveats built in to ensure ongoing struggles given the stated scope of objectives. Sound and certainly above average RR grammar and prose. Well worth having a crack if you’re bored of blue screens and stats and looking for a (presently) earth based adventure. Keep it rolling.

We need super advanced technology help the word

The Space Legacy

A story that uses a very realistic view on what the world and society is. How the corporations affect the world, how they affect the future and how the people have to adapt to the changes around them to keep living.

 In the case of the protagonist he can make a change, and he chooses to do so for the better, all by using an ancient  shop with technology that far surpasses anything humanity ever dreamed of.

I'm originally reviewing this on 1/20/2020 when chapter 9-2 is the latest available. Reviews and impressions may change in the future (although not likely because this story is pretty awesome so far), and I will likely update this review as the story continues.

In general, i'm a huge sci-fi fan and this story pretty much matches exactly what i've been looking for for a long time. I love the steady progression and setting of the story, and how everything in each step of the plot seems to line up perfectly and seems completely natural. The exposition is set up very nicely and doesnt seem forced at all, and again, feels completely natural to the progression of the story.

The characters are very believable and act adn react as ones of their stations would, and again again, seem completely natural to the setting and plot.

I did notice some very minor grammatical issues and dialogue sounding a little robotic at times (hence the 4/5 stars), but I feel like it doesn't diminish what Igi, the author, is trying to convey, although it is somewhat distracting.

In general, it's a good story and I very much look forward to following where it will go! :D

Godspeed Igi, keep em comin'!

Space Organization Done Right

Reviewed at: Book 1 - Chapter 13

I'm usually noot the largest fan of either high-tech stories or alternate history stories, but that's not what this is. This is a winderful combination of characterization and adventure. The grammar is flawless and the pace is perfect. Keep writing Igi.

This story is great! It is still early in yet a lot has already happened while not feeling rushed, so pacing is already great. The characters actions are believable and their logic makes sence and is understandable. I can't wait to see where this story goes, if it's anything like how it's been so far it will be great!

A Very Solid Story, One of the Top Sci-fi Novel

Reviewed at: Book 1 - Chapter 10

The story begins with the MC finding an ancient spaceship after accidentally falling(I'll not spoil further). The author has a good skill in using showing rather than telling. An advanced writing skills such as the usage of quotation, semicolon, hyphen, and many others were showcased perfectly.

Character-wise, it's very thought out. Sometimes I find that the other character like the A.I. is annoyingly funny to the MC but that just how the A.I. work, I guess.

I don't have any complaint about the grammar, solid so far with minimal to no mistake. One thing that needs to be watched for is the long paragraph. Oftentimes, the paragraph can be long enough to make me a bit hard to consume the story. I don't think it's an anomaly for western novels though, but for someone that prefers eastern novels, it can be a bit tasking. Still, the story's not convoluted so it's a good read.

Very Well Done.

Someone gets advanced tech, decides to build an empire in space. Megalomania? Maybe. But he's not painfully naive and surviving via luck, so that's a plus. He has a plan that could work, and he's putting together a team to get it done.

There are parts that remind me of some other stories I've seen, but it feels more like inspiration than imitation.

Top five sci-fi stories I've seen in the last few years.
