[A] feel-good story, fast paced and never boring. It keeps you checking yourself as to how you are conducting your life − are you being grateful to your loved ones? Loved the book. Would recommend it to all my friends.

It made me cry, it made me laugh, and I couldn't put the book down. I read the whole thing in one day. What a wonderful read. Waiting on the next book.

While science fiction usually isn't my genre of choice, I decided to read this out of curiosity. I have never been more pleasantly surprised with a book. The author obviously did a great deal of research, and I found that he sprinkled his findings in an engaging and entertaining manner that kept me captivated throughout the book…the imagination and creativity needed to craft such a work is bordering on genius, and I look forward to reading more from Mr. Underwood.

The story was gripping and drew me right in to where I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the humor and storyline. A fantastic escape from reality! I can't wait to read more from this author.

This book was wonderful! It grabbed me from page 1 all the way to the end. I could barely put it down once I started. Mr. Underwood did a great job bringing this story to life with the characters and descriptions. I certainly recommend this book to everyone who loves science fiction. I am waiting excitedly for the next Austin Steele Adventure!

This book was engaging from the start. The characters become a part of your family, and you get excited about what might happen next.
