Publishers Description: Shot down by an unidentified particle beam while en route to a resort planet, Morgan Teggo and Rayna Choff find themselves on a quest to discover the nefarious plans of the mysterious man behind the ancient weapon.

Review: This novel was very short, pretty much a novella. In short it read like a 1950’s scifi B-movie. Jumbled plot, erratic story-line, no back story and a huge suspension of disbelief as the story advances through time. This story was so erratic, that once you thought you had it visualized, the author would introduce something that shattered any notion you originally had.

There were some interesting pieces within, like the native race on the planet and the indigenous wildlife, that I thought the author could have developed better. Novellas should be elegant and straight forward in order to realize the limits and express the wonder. Timegazer has neither.
