adventure with an other-worldly twist June 5, 2018 5 out of 5 STARS.
This was the first book by Mike Gonzales that I had the opportunity to read, and I was pleased to discover how much I enjoyed traveling to a new planet and imagining what might enfold.
Kathy and Dave connected as they journeyed to a new world. Once there, they adjust to their future, establishing friendships, building relationships, and discovering some hidden treasures. They also learn of an evil plan and lead the way to eliminate that horror with the help of some unlikely allies and new friends.
I was amazed by the world built around me -- so much detail and such creativity from the tiniest plant life to the amazing wonders in the sky! All the twists and turns kept me at the edge of my seat, ready for when the dust would settle.
If you’re a fan of adventure with an other-worldly twist, you won’t want to miss this!

I really like this author. I have read his other two books also. To me this latest book shows a positive progression of his talents as an author. The details and easy transitions of the story make it a nice reading book. I look forward to the next book!
This review is for: The Battle of Broken Moon (The Unborn Galaxy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
In Book II, Broken Moon, the reader gets the "broken" part right away. Although the story begins with action, my only criticism of this book is that the narrative goes on a little long, leaving the reader to wonder, "When will the action begin?"
However, not to fret, it does begin, and with it comes the characters. This is the fun part.
Fun? Well, the characters are not exactly having fun, but I enjoyed learning about each one, whether a real human...or not...and getting to know their characteristics and personalities. Yes, both have such. Even the Non-human humans...yes, that's what I said...can be humorous. I liked that.
This is a kind of nail biter, making me, the reader think, Oh, thank you, God, I am not living on the moon. In the end, you'll be glad you read the book.
Well done, Mr. Gonzales.

Great story--great sequel! April 7, 2017
This sequel helps us to understand what happened to the JILL lab after the devastating quake in Book I. This writer is a great storyteller, and he knows how to keep you interested in his story. Each character is deep and interesting, even the little service robots have personalities. It kept me on the edge of my chair for hours. This is an awesome read and a great vacation for the imagination. Looking forward to more installments from this great storyteller!
Nr. 1. -- 5.0 out of 5 stars - Great Read!

I just finished reading this imaginative, compelling book by new author, Michael E. Gonzales. I liked the characters and the storyline had enough twists and turns to keep me interested. I feared a non-techie, such as myself, might get lost in scientific techno speak, but not so; there was just enough to explain what was going on, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by it. This book has it all…space travel, living on the Moon, aliens, quakes, secrets, and romance! I’m definitely looking forward to Book 2!

Excellent Science Fiction in the classical form from a Great New Writer
By Mr. Truitton March 30, 2016
Mr. Gonzales has written an excellent book. His characters are very believable and well developed. Not only that, they appeal to the reader in such a way that the reader becomes involved with them in the story. The story line is excellent and builds constantly. The opening of the book grabs the reader's interest straight away and maintains it's hold right through the very end. This is the author's first novel and he is certainly starting out well. The tone and feeling of this brings back the flavor of the classics of Golden Age science fiction. It has the feel of something from the early works of Robert Heinlein or Lester Del Rey or even Issac Asimov. It is SPACE OPERA in the true sense and reaches back to the true meaning of SCIENCE FICTION in that it involves human emotions and attitudes being impacted by scientific developments and discoveries. I most wholeheartedly recommend this novel to all lovers of REAL SCIENCE FICTION and look forward to the publication of the rest of this series.
