The Gift

By Dave Donovan


Earth’s future is in the hands of one of two men. Sam Steele, a broken father and husband, or Eric Web, a career officer who believes the U.S. government is always right.
Visitors from an exterminated alien race have arrived on earth, and they are nothing like previously imagined. They are an interconnected collection of manufactured constructs, each designed to help a single intelligent life form. They call themselves gifts and they bring terrifying news. There is a battle going on among the stars and lifeforms like humans are losing. The gifts offer assistance, but it comes with a price. In order to receive their help, humanity must agree to help them.
What must humankind become to save itself?


What the Reviewers are Saying


I picked up this book and couldn’t put it down. Highly recommend.

Had to give it five stars. As a life long scfi reader it thought that maybe there were no more new concepts out there. This story happily proves me WRONG.

This book is really good sci-fi. It took me all of 2 pages to get hooked and I finished the whole thing in just a couple of sittings.
