“TRANSMISSION is riveting, unexpected, and firmly rooted in strong psychological profiles backed with thriller and sci-fi elements: what more could readers wish for? (Just the quick publication of Book Two, Arrival.)”

--Midwest Book Review


From #1 worldwide bestselling fantasy author Morgan Rice comes a long-anticipated science fiction series debut. When SETI finally receives a signal from an alien civilization, what will happen next?


A 13 year old boy, dying of a rare brain disease, is the only one able to hear and decode signals from outer space. SETI confirms it is a real signal.


What is the message? How will the world react?


And most of all: are the aliens coming?

Don't know what to say except if you like science fiction that's not technical, you'll love this book.

A unique young adult novel where a young boy with a rare brain condition is the only human on Earth who is receiving messages from an incoming alien race. He then is the only person who can decipher radio signals which set in motion the events which has them racing to understand what all these messages could mean. My only complaint about the book is that this being a young adult novel, it treats all adults as slow and simply not understanding what's really going on, or not believing the children, and the children in the book ALWAYS seem to have all the answers. Still a solid 4 star rating because it's a well thought out plot and story.

Wonderful book, couldn't put it down. You have a kid dying, a mother fighting to save him while falling apart, aliens, drama, and a surprise twist that will knock your socks off. Get it, read it, and let the author know you loved, then review it. Just as I have done. Authors need to hear from us and reviews pay the bills.
