Book "Pandora's Eyes" by James M.Corkill

About the Book: What If The Color Of Your Eyes Will Determine Whether You Live Or Die?
After securing a 180-million-year old spacecraft discovered in the Bering Sea, Geologist Alex Cave thought his life had finally stabilized, but during the recovery, he also found four alien artifacts that seemed designed to destroy all life on our planet. He thinks they are locked up at Groom Lake, away from unscrupulous industrialists and scientists, but two of the devices have gone missing, and one of them is in orbit over our planet.
John Essex had good intentions when he modified one of the stolen artifacts to collect and recycle the space debris orbiting our planet.
Nevertheless, when he turns it on, an artificial intelligence detects the signal from deep in the Earth. The AI named Pandora learns the Earth has new inhabitants and informs Alex that humans with brown eyes are genetically inferior and prone to aggressive behavior. She threatens to wipe our entire species from the face of the planet unless our world leaders voluntarily kill anyone with brown eyes.
“Can Alex find a way out of this no-win situation?
“Get ready for thrilling scenarios, exhilarating situations, and nail-biting suspense. A fantastic ride from this bestselling and award-winning author. A great sequel to Gravity.”

About the Author: Hello. I’m James M. Corkill, a Veteran, and retired Federal Firefighter from Washington State, USA. I was an electronic technician and studied mechanical engineering in my spare time before eventually becoming a firefighter for 32-years and retiring. I’ve since settled into the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina, and I have a fantastic view from my writing desk.
I began writing in 1997, and was fortunate to meet a famous horror writer named Hugh B. Cave, who became my mentor. In 2002, I rushed to self-published a dozen copies of Dead Energy so my wife could see my book before she was taken by cancer. When my soul mate was gone, I stopped writing and began drinking heavily.
“When you wake up in the morning, you never know where the day will take you.”
In 2013, I met a stranger who recognized my name and had enjoyed an old copy of Dead Energy, except for the ending. When she encouraged me to start writing again, I realized this chance meeting was just what I needed to hear at the right moment. I quit drinking and began the rewrite of Dead Energy into The Alex Cave Series, and guess what? Now I’m a bestselling and award-winning author, and I’m thankful for that fateful encounter.
I’ve always been an inventor with an overabundance of imagination, and I’ve been fascinated by unusual rock formations for most of my life, so let me introduce you to my alter ego, Alex Cave. These are his adventures.

My review: This is another very well written thriller featuring Alex Cave, our famous and beloved Geologist. This book is the fifth one on the series. Although they are stories that can hold on their own independently, in a couple of times there are references to situations that happened in the previous books. So I would recommend that you read the previous books in the order they were published, so you can savor this one better. The sequence is: "Dead Energy", followed by "Cold Energy", and then "Read Energy", "Gravity" and finally "Pandora's Eyes". You will not regret it. Excellent and very entertaining reading, intelligent plots and very enjoyable reading.
In this particular book, one of the four alien artifacts that were found in previous books is in orbit, and was modified to collect space debris that is flying in orbit of Earth. When this device was activated, an Artificial Intelligence named Pandora that was dormant detected the device. The crew of this alien spaceship that was sleeping for millions of years is awakened. They contact humans and the adventure really begins to pick up. Alex Cave and his best friend Okana face the most challenging situation they ever had.
This is a great book and I recommend it to the permanent library of all science-fiction readers. They will not be disappointed.
