    Lan has returned to Neverend for a high school reunion and runs into his friend, Parke. He's glad to see him but the real reason he's returned home is to see Tessa. A lot has changed since he left, though, and she might not be too happy to see him again.I'm not a huge fan of Sci-Fi, but the mystery and reunion between characters piqued my interest. I'm glad to say that I enjoyed it! Lan and Parke were funny together. Lan has changed a lot since high school but has his reasons for keeping secrets from Parke. When he catches up with Tessa, he learns of a mystery surrounding her late father's museum. Their investigation into what's happening takes them on quite an adventure.These were fun characters to get to know. Lan, Parke and Tessa were joined by Carrie, another high school friend, Rento, a kid that Lan and Parke had an earlier altercation with, and Onta, a creature from another planet. There comes a point where Lan and Tessa are chasing after the villains, Wilby and Ellie, and we learn more about Lan and how resourceful he has become. Tessa has some concerns about Lan which she tries to work through during that time as well.This book started out strong for me, then slowed down a bit in the middle, and then really picked up again at the end. It wasn't too heavy on the Sci-Fi, which was perfect for me. There is some light romance as well. The author is currently re-releasing most of his titles and I am interested in reading more!I received a complimentary copy, which did not affect my review in any way.Mel's Shelves

    Lan has returned to his childhood home within the underground colony on Neverend. He is wary about returning to the closed in caverns and tight spaces that always made him feel claustrophobic, but he really wants to track down his high school girlfriend, Tessa. Upon arriving, Lan reunites with old friends Parke and Carrie who inform him that Tessa has been holed up in her father’s museum. Tessa has been being threatened into selling the museum and is pretty sure that someone has been breaking in. After learning about Tessa’s troubles, Lan is determined to help; and luckily Lan now has just the skill set to help Tessa with her unique issue.A fast paced, fun mystery with plenty of adventure and excitement. Set in a mesh of other worlds, Reunion on Neverend successfully took me far away. The world building was magnificent and I could picture the volcanic cave formations on Neverend and the homes and shops carved out of them. For me, the best part was the mix of characters and how they worked to solve Tessa’s museum mystery. I knew Lan was hiding a secret from the very beginning, his unbecoming demeanor camouflaged his overwhelming knowledge and physical capabilities. Paired with his much larger friend, Parke, they made an intimidating duo. Once the group gets together to outwit a duo interested in Tessa’s museum for maniacal means, action, adventure and comedy prevail. Lan’s means of frustrating the thieves was ingenious and hilarious. Usually I’m not huge on space adventure, but this science fiction mystery was perfect for me.This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

    Lan has returned to Neverend for a high school reunion. He wants to rekindle his relationship with his previous girlfriend, Tessa except his claustrophobia keeps him from being comfortable in the underground caverns. While there, he learns that someone is trying to buy/steal the museum Tessa’s father left to her. Lan calls in help to figure out what is going on and they discover that there is a lot more to the museum than originally thought. This was an interesting read. It’s a good story with enough action to keep you interested without too much science and technology to bore you. I liked the mystery of what was going on and why were they trying to get the museum. I thought the ending was very fitting and wrapped everything up nicely.This is a great scifi read. It’s one to definitely check out if you like the classic scifi stories.I received Reunion on Neverend for free from Sami at Roger Charlie in exchange for an honest review.

    Lan and Parke two former residents of Neverend, a world where most live in underground caverns have returned to their world for a reunion. Lan is there to reconnect with a lost love. Parke is a friend from long ago. Tesla, Lan's lost love turns out to have a problem, someone is threatening her to sell her Father's museum. In the ensuing investigation, Lan, Parke Tesla and Carrie, a friend find there is a lot more going on in the museum then they suspected, and Tesla learns that Lan has a few secrets of his own.Basically cops and robbers in space with a small amount of star gate travel and a little speculative science fiction about the electronic surveillance and weapons. Not a lot of heavy science fiction lifting but a good sf tale.Easy reading.

    It reminded me of some of Heinlein's stories meant for older teens, but I still found it enjoyable. He did a great job of universe-building, and the romance, although it wasn't the focus of the story, was enjoyable.

    A romantic fun run through alien worldsIt was James Bond romancing his high school sweet heart while chasing the bad guys on alien worlds. There was too much detail about every rock he passed and every room he went through. But I kept reading because it was fun.

    An interesting sci-fi romp that starts off with a murder-mystery amidst the backdrop of a ten-year high school reunion that transforms into an intriguing adventure using a previously undiscovered technology. Stith has a good way with realistic dialogue that develops the characters well.

    It was a very good story with great character interaction and humor. The twist and turns of pathways was too hard to follow.
