What do you do when you wake up in a small box, in a small room, with no idea who and where you are. After some disorientation, you discover that your name (at least part of your name) is Al Clark. But really, who are you and how did you happen to be there? After some exploration, you finally meet another human. From him you begin to learn at least where you are. You’re on a starship that may be in deep trouble. You also learn that you are one of a thousand specially selected people to leave Earth for another world.

The mission of the Starship Excalibur is to convey colonists to start a new civilization on a compatible planet, named Avalon, thirty Earth years away. The ship is state-of-the-art and entirely automatic, with its passengers safely sleeping through the journey. But something has gone wrong and a lot more time has passed than planned. Plus, Avalon and Al himself may not be exactly as they seem. Is the mission still achievable; can they successfully establish a new colony? Only more time will tell.

Al Clark by Jonathan G. Meyer grabs the reader's attention from page one. One of my favorite genres is science fiction, above all, space opera. I found Al Clark to be space opera and more. I call it space adventure. The author has created a strong, believable set of characters, particularly the First Six. The story plot is strong and steady with several well designed twists, leaving a true space opera and space adventure fan expectantly waiting to turn the next page. I strongly recommend this book for those that enjoy good sci-fi. Good story.
