A bit of a slow start but develops into a very creative Scifi experience.
The Stonehenge Gate by Jack Williamson, I found this book while just searching through the sci-fi section and thought it sounded pretty good , a book about using the stonehenge type stones as portals so i grabbed it up not knowing this could very well have been the last written novel by the author.
If your looking for a quick adventure thats actually quite good, then this is it. I only gave it 4 stars because it should have been a two or three book series with a little bit more charcater development and maybe splitting scenes and following some of the characters at the same time, exploring and viewing the worlds these adventurers are on. But as it was its a quick book and fairly easy to follow.
Some of the technology they find is a bit hard to beleive but others at time felt right in place. The author might have intended to follow up on the story with more of the adventure but we will never know. I'm a fan of artifacts and this book falls into both adventure and one about artifacts. Enjoy
A dark mystery has been buried beneath the sands of the Sahara desert since the beginning of time. In a basement in New Mexico, four poker buddies find reason to believe that a startling secret is out there. . .
These four amateur adventurers are about to uncover the key that could unlock the vast reaches of the universe.
A sudden burst of curiosity propels mild-mannered English professor Will and his three friends to the Sahara to excavate a site where radar has evidently detected trilithic stones hidden beneath the sand. There they stumble upon an ancient artifact that will change their lives, and the world, forever...a gateway between planets, linking Earth to distant worlds where they will discover wonders and terrors beyond imagining.
Jack Williamson, the dean of science fiction writers, weaves an exciting tale that takes the friends to the far corners of the universe. One leads an oppressed people to freedom. Another uncovers clues that could identify a long-dormant civilization of immortal beings. Now each traveler must play a crucial role in unraveling an ancient mystery, the solution to which may reveal the true origins of the human race.
If they can just survive their journeys back to Earth . . .
