Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Silver Sphere Trilogy is a collection in the science fiction, adventure, and action subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by David Gittlin. The work gathers all the action of the trilogy in one volume, following the exploits of aspiring writer Jacob Casell, whose life turns upside down when he meets Arcon, a talking sphere. This marvelous example of alien tech leads the way on a mission to save Jacob’s world and the universe beyond, introducing the young man to technology beyond his wildest dreams and people he should never have been able to encounter, both for better and for worse.

Having read the opening to this exciting trilogy a while ago, it was wonderful to settle back in with the completed three-part volume and lose myself in the whole extent of this inventive and exciting story. Jacob Casell is an everyman hero whose early naiveties and discoveries are highly relatable. I enjoyed his imperfect reactions whilst he was on a journey to find a useful place in this newly elevated alien world he’s suddenly part of. Arcon provides the perfect foil to the fish-out-of-water storyline with his wit, intellect, and abilities. The pairing sets itself up nicely for all of the exciting moments that David Gittlin builds, which he describes with great atmospheric detail and a clear enthusiasm for science and technology. I would certainly recommend The Silver Sphere Trilogy to science fiction fans seeking a fast-paced read and an enjoyable new author to discover.

David Gittlin's The Silver Sphere Trilogy is an action-packed trilogy involving aliens, adventures in space, multiverse missions, and defending the Earth from many perils. The story begins with Jacob Casell, a mystery writer, who joins an extraterrestrial on a quest to save the earth. He learns that if they don't succeed in saving it within three days, the world would be obliterated by a pulsar from a neutron star explosion 250 light years away. The pair are joined in their quest to save lives and worlds from destruction by a beautiful woman with academic qualifications in aerospace engineering and astronomy and a score to settle with a criminal ex-lover. Their bond deepens as they discover more about their strange, alien natures and encounter daunting problems and tough individuals during the missions.

The story begins with the fundamental aspects of the protagonist's initial goal then gradually and skillfully introduces additional information about the world and various sci-fi features as the plot progresses, making it engaging to read. The serious and high-risk missions are balanced with well-timed humor and friendly interaction, which I thoroughly enjoyed. In one scene, I was terrified that the protagonists would be blasted into space by an alien warship. In another, I smiled at the creative and amusing use of language. The book is a gem for science fiction aficionados, as it includes such themes as multiverses, terraforming, telepathy, aliens, space fleets, wormholes, and more. As I had a blast with The Silver Sphere Trilogy, I can't wait to read more of David Gittlin's books. You should certainly read this one.

Jacob Casell is running in emergency mode. The book he is writing is nowhere near its end, and his deadline is long past due. His editor is practically ready to tear him limb from limb unless he can pull a miracle out of that incredible mind of his. Seeking solitude, he retires to his friend's beachside home to salvage his desperate situation. While here, on one of his seaside walks, he stumbles upon an orb of extraterrestrial origin. It informs him he was chosen to save Earth from an extinction-level event with galactic consequences, and time is of the essence. Read on to find out what happens next in this madcap adventure titled The Silver Sphere Trilogy by David Gittlin.

Science fiction takes a different direction in David Gittlin's comedic adventure. The storyline is easy to follow and maintains a tempo that ebbs and flows in tandem with the activity in the story. It is also nice to see that his description of otherworldly characters is not overdone, as can be the case in many books in this genre. There may not be many characters in this story, but what they lack in number, they make up for in their depth and detail. The fascinating aspect for me is how Gittlin uses interesting banter between the principal characters and flowery language that marks his style of storytelling, turning a run-of-the-mill tale into the enjoyable read that is The Silver Sphere Trilogy. It holds its own admirably in the sci-fi genre.
