Blog Tour for The Return by Austin Boyd

Posted on: September 20, 2007

I waited until the last minute to post on this tour because I want to finish the book! LOL

This month’s featured book is The Return by Austin Boyd, the third book in the Mars Hill Classified series.

When I first received the review copy, I read the back of the book and just knew I HAD to read the first two books in the series. So as soon as I got some blow money in my virtual hot little hand, I ordered the first two (The Evidence & The Proof) from They arrived mid-week last week. I’ve been reading the entire series in my “spare” time.

At first I was a little disappointed because I felt the The Evidence was a little slow starting. It took a bit for me to get hooked.

Let me just tell you my belief about aliens. I subscribe to the Chuck Missler school of thought that aliens are really demons out there trying to deceive people. I mean if you look at the “fruit” from their “visits,” you’ll find people ending up with Post Tramautic Stress Disorder, nightmares, that the experiences were all horrific. I personally don’t believe that there is other intelligent life out there (at least on the level that man is) except for angels, demons, the devil, and of course God. The Bible doesn’t say either way, so I guess it could be a possibility, but I think probably not.

Anyway, back to the review. The book series main character is John Wells. He’s an astronaut and on the International Space Station when an alien probe launches from Mars and heads to earth. The three books unfold a very interesting, well-penned story based on this start. I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to spoil it for you.

I apologize to those out there who read this and think it’s jumbled. I’ve been up since 3 am (I deliver newspapers now) and it’s like it’s super late at night for me. I don’t have time to check it before I hit the hay, but I’ll come back tomorrow morning and clean the post up a bit. And maybe I can sneak a chapter in before I go to sleep.

Other Blog Tour participants are listed below. Check out their sites. I’m sure there are great interviews with Austin Boyd, whose biography on the back of the book reads like the achievements of someone I’d want my kids to hang around.

Nice post, Dawn. I think you made a wise decision to read the first two books before The Return. I’m still working my way through the last book. Less than a hundred pages to go, but I won’t make any progress tonight. I write for a newspaper, one that is delivered to my door at 4:00 am, so I know you have to be operating on a little different schedule than others. It never ceases to amaze me how I can turn a story in by 10:45, have it edited by 11:00, then see it in print when I wake up in the morning.
