    One thought on “The Far Horizon”

    1. The Far Horizon is a junior science fiction novel intended for ages 9 12 At the beginning the protagonist, Cory, is having trouble accepting his father s new partner It s a tricky time in any child s life, but doubly so when the new partner happens to be a member of a technologically advanced alien race.There s a lot of political intrigue in this book, than I was expecting for the intended age group, but the author s notes on explain that the book is intended to be read aloud by parents.Far Hor [...]

    2. While this is a book for young children it was still helpful to me because I definitely enjoyed getting to learn what Cory was like at a young age and how some of feelings about aliens developed and were influenced during this time If you re a fan of the Ambassador series by Patty Jansen then you ll probably like to read this as well.

    3. Joint Review for Editor s Cove by Lisa Metlak and Duncan Metlak age 11 Cory Wilson wasn t happy when his father married Erith, an alien from the Union However, when Cory s father was assigned to Midway Space Station, Cory never thought the residents would hate the aliens as much as they did When he stumbles upon a plan to harm the delegates at an important human alien conference happening on the station, nobody believes him Will Cory be able to convince his father and the delegates that someone [...]

    4. When Cory was eight, his mother died of cancer Now two years later, his father is marrying an extraterrestrial humanoid or Ethie Humans are in contact with a number of alien species, all of which are genetically related to humanity and each other Cory and his family then leave for Midway Station, where his father takes up the post of director shortly before an important conference between the Union and the nations of Earth But radical factions of humanity want to throw a wrench in the works.This [...]

    5. This little book just got better and better It s good, old fashioned science fiction, the kind that s just perfect for curling up with.With a ten year old hero, I guess the book qualifies as YA or middle grade But it kept my interest all the way through, with good, complex characters, and a story line busy enough for the adult mind The space station setting is accurate and rich, portrayed quite well through the story, without pages and pages of exposition to describe everything.There are a few t [...]

    6. I like a book to grab me from the beginning, and though this book didn t really have that effect for me, I devoured it once the story got going By the time I was 20 pages in I didn t want to put it down As a reader, I would definitely read of Jansen s work based on this experience Read the entire review at Sift siftbookreviews 2Review by Kayelee of Sift Book ReviewsSift Book Reviews received a free copy for review from the author This has, in no way, affected the reviewer s opinion.

    7. While obviously aimed at a younger audience, even as an adult I found this book to be excellent My only complaint is that the ending seems a bit sudden and I d have liked to see a little of the aftermath I fully accept I m not the target audience, though, and the ending may be just what younger readers want.

    8. A quick but excellent sci fi adventure The Far Horizon may take place in the future at a space station, but it touches on themes of racism and acceptance that impact us all directly here on Earth right now I d highly recommend this book, and am looking forward to future works by Patty Jensen.
