While “Light Reaches Earth” was a good story and was told well. The message that the author is trying to get across to the reader seems to overpower the story line in places. The characters are strong and come across as likeable, but the development seems rushed. The reader is just starting to get a good feel of the people and places the story is talking about when it ends. If you are an avid Sci-Fi reader then this story will leave you wanting, at least it did me.
A good quick read, but certainly not one of this author’s best works. With full development this could have quickly become a #1, but all in all, not a bad one-shot into the Sci-Fi genre.
