Kadar San, a human-Zentadon crossbreed distrusted by both humans and Zentadon, is dispatched with a Deep Reconnaissance Team (DRT) to the Dark Planet of Aldenia. His mission: use his telepathic powers to sniff out a Blob assault base preparing to attack the Galaxia Republic. Dominated by both amazing insect and reptile life forms, and by an evil and mysterious Presence, Aldenia was once a base for the warlike Indowy who used their superior technology to enslave the Zentadon and turn them into super warriors to deploy against humans.

Blade’s voice on the radio sounded a little too strained, a bit stretched. Pia gave a little jump ce. Time is running out, el. .It wasn’t yet light enough to move. I checked through the waterfall, then popped back inside, shaking water off the dirty makeshift head rag that covered my hair. Is it still raining?. I looked at her. Foolish question, she acknowledged. Elf, maybe we can still pull a deal. You’ll never make it with the cunt

Two men wearing ski masks, sleeveless bullet-proof vests, and harnesses to keep them from falling out were crouched in the chopper's open door. From the author of previous military and action adventure novels like THE 100TH KILL, DETACHMENT DELTA series and THE RETURN comes Charles W. Sasser's latest speculative political action-adventure thriller ripped from today's headlines and based on actual current events.

Kadar San, a Zentadon-Human crossbreed, is dispatched with a Deep Reconnassance Team to the Dark Planet, Aldenia. But all is not as it seems on the dark and deadly planet, and Kadar San must face a horrible truth. No one is going to leave the Dark Planet alive. Format:Mass Market Paperback.

Sasser Charles W. Рік: 2005. Cover Illustration by Adam Mock.

If enough people read and act on the new book Crushing the Collective then the USA might be saved, otherwise as Charles Sasser pointed out to our listeners on talk radio, we are about to see some very dark days. WASHINGTON - The American way-independence, entrepreneurialism, liberty-has been under assault for decades. Год: 2005. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them.

Kadar San, a human-Zentadon crossbreed distrusted by both humans and Zentadon, is dispatched with a Deep Reconnaissance Team (DRT) to the Dark Planet of Aldenia. His mission: use his telepathic powers to sniff out a Blob assault base preparing to attack the Galaxia Republic. Dominated by both amazing insect and reptile life forms, and by an evil and mysterious Presence, Aldenia was once a base for the warlike Indowy who used their superior technology to enslave the Zentadon and turn them into super warriors to deploy against humans. The DRT comes under attack not only from savage denizens of the Dark Planet, but also from the mysterious Presence, which turns team member against team member and all against Kadar San. The Presence promises untold wealth and power to any member of the team unscrupulous enough to unleash the contents of a Pandora's box-like remnant of Indowy technology. The box's possessor poses a greater threat than the entire Blob nation, for he is capable of releasing untold horrors upon the galaxy. Kadar San finds himself pitted against a human killer, an expert sniper, in a desperate struggle to save both the Republic and the human female he has come to love. Like all Zentadon, however, Kadar San cannot kill without facing destruction himself in the process, and he has no choice but to kill. In order to save the galaxy, Kadar San must face the truth . . . no one will leave the Dark Planet .

This book's strength is that the author does avery good job in creating characters that you care about. The book does a great job creating a setting that is formable. The Dark Planet is a spooky place to be. The author does a good job creating tension. The ending of the book is a disappointment. It seemed that the author followed a set manual on how to end a book. 3/4 of the book he keeps your attention. The end of the book was predictable and disappointing

I won't go into how this novel came about as other reviewers have covered that pretty well. But I will say that it is always possible that it may have been the author's agent that made sure this book made it to the stands and not the author.

This book is really bad. Set in another author's universe, a military team is sent to a hostile planet to check if the alien Blobs have established a base there. The main character is not human although the rest of the cast is. During the course of the book the focus seems to change. Is it military SF, SF horror, adventure, or what?

The planet is inhabited by giant bugs and reptiles. Really giant like from some old pulp. They all are very dangerous and would love to each the team. That is except when the plot calls for the nasties to all stay away or placid for long periods (more and more as the book progresses). Eventually the story moves to an object quest as one tries to keep the object out of the wrong hands.

The book starts by quickly establishing the dangerous nature of the planet and then slowly abandons the idea. Interspecies romance, although frowned upon by all species, seems to crop up an awful lot. Like Burroughs's Barsoom, the planet seems to be inhabited entirely by carnivores. The action is choppy at best. Being set in another author's universe leaves it feeling like there is a lot of information left out. All in all, it is just not a good book.

That this book was by Charles Sasser is an obvious warning sign to begin with: the man is known for many things, but not for his writing ability. His work can be generally expected to be of dismally low quality, but Dark Planet plumbs a new depth even for him.

More than two years ago, he was approached to co-write a book with John Ringo, set in Ringo's Legacy of the Aldenata universe. His attempt, however, sucked; after repeated consultations he was unable to improve upon it, despite the fact that Ringo had told him basically what to write. He was dropped from the project after his incompetence was firmly proven, and the job given to Michael Z. Williamson, who wrote the book known as Hero, which was published in July 2004.

However, unwilling to accept that he sucked, Sasser then attempted to pawn off the rejected filling-in of someone else's plot as his own work; as this book, Dark Planet. However, he knew that it would be critically necessary to change certain elements so that he wouldn't be pinpointed as having stolen Ringo's work without paying or crediting him. Rather than changing trademark issues ("Indowy", "blobs", and so forth, all appear in their original context in the book), Sasser chose instead to alter details of realism. In the inference that his readers are no smarter than he is, and possibly to show general contempt for the "geeky" SF genre, Sasser instead chooses to differentiate his work from Ringo's by displaying an apparent third-grade science education.

Among other things, Sasser's hero is an alien with deep romantic desire for a human; he has ignored the fact that it is biologically impossible for aliens to feel lust or love for humans, let alone breed with them. Further, Tau Ceti is a star system, not a galaxy. These are plausible mistakes that a Star Trek quality-control team would not let through, mistakes that do to suspension-of-disbelief what multiple-megaton explosives do to suspension bridges.

Nevertheless, this book does have merits. It's inspirational, for aspiring writers who hope to get published and fear their work will never be good enough. A quick glance through Dark Planet will show even the crudest writer of Harry Potter slash fanfic that his work is superior to *something*, which will be worth the price of admission to many.

Other reviewers here have told the story of the rejection of the manuscript that became this book as "unrepairable."

I had a look at the book at my local science-fiction bookstore, and the word "unrepairable" compliments this lousy excuse of a book far beyond its merits. "The Hero", which is the story that finally emerged from John Ringo and Michael Williamson, grabbed me from the first paragraph and wouldn't let go. After getting ten pages into this book, the only question I had about it was "How did Sasser find *anyone* stupid enough to publish it?" We'll probably never know.

Avoid at all costs... really.

For pretty much the same story, similar characters with the same powers, aliens species with the same names, same problems for the hero, same equipment, same opponent, ect...

Read the Baen book Hero(ISBN#0-7434-8827-X)published about a year earlier

another reader gathered up the particulars, so I will use their post for this.
