    1. On a space ship somewhere in the blackness of space, rectangular shapes are resting against the walls in a small quiet room, when a green dot begins to glow on each panel of the five containers. Before long different lights are activated and as steam arises the lids slowly open. Cautiously the travellers emerge from hundreds of years sleep from deep space travelling as the ship drew closer to their target, Base Two the planet Mars. Upon reaching their stations, Major Thomas Birch was anxious to [...]

    2. *I received an ebook copy of 'Planetfall' from L.E.Howel in return for an honest review.*Major Thomas Birch and his crew can never go home, that was clearly understood when they were accepted on the Hypnos space mission. When their mission to enable colonisation of a planet fails, Birch decides that their only option is to return to earth,which in itself proves to be an extremely dangerous manoeuvre. In earth terms it is now hundreds of years since their departure, so understandably they have no [...]

    3. It is said you can never go home, and for several brave men and women who take to space, knowing they will never see their loved ones or their home planet again, this adage proves far too true, but not in the way they imagined. Sent as part of a mission to build a new colony on another planet, the members of the Hypnos III meet with failure and after years in a frozen stasis Major Thomas Birch gives the order to head back to a future Earth that far surpasses their worst nightmares and it all sta [...]

    4. I received an e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This is one of those books that grips you from the very first page. It has everything from a riveting twisting plot line that keeps the reader holding their breath every step of the way to the ultimate truth of how time betrays all in ways never considered before. The characters are extremely believable in their rigid discipline and dedication to their work and, once the full extent of the betrayal becomes apparent, this dedic [...]

    6. Old school sci fiThis was a throwback sci fi novel in the vein of H.G. Wells Time Machine. When their mission to find a new planet fails, the crew of the Hypnos returns to Earth to find a world very changed from the one they knew. Humanity has divided between the feral Alphas and the last vestiges of government lead by the mysterious president. Fans of Clarke and Asimov will enjoy this story

    7. Planetfall by L.E. Bowel is a futuristic science fiction story. Their origional mission was to find compatible planets to seed them with seedlings to make better oxygen and food crops. The mission was unsuccessful. The put in coordinates for earth and entered cybergenic chambers. Birch is captain by default. The land on earth and Birch finds himself in a tropical seeding. He could have sworn they were landing in Washington state. He broke his leg. This was all an illusion. Birch meets the captai [...]

    8. Well it didn't end up being what I had thought. I am not going to lie. I am disappointed. It could have been so much more. The "sell" should have come sooner and I am not impressed with the Wizard of Oz ending. Really the man behind the curtain. It was just shallow. All of it. Bummer. I was looking forward to a solid sci-fi story.

    9. I got a Kindle copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. It took me a while to finish reading it because of my work obligations but the story really intrigued me. There's everything: spaceships, time traveling, adventure I would definitely like to read the sequel and find out what happened next.

    10. Won this book from ! Excellent read! I don't often read Scifi but this book had my full attention from page one! At times it seemed a little dark, humanity at it's lowest Loved the story line, characters and it kept me involved in the story right to the end. An ending that I was not really expecting. Well done L.E. Howel! Looking forward to your next book.

    11. It was a good book. I found that the author had a good imagination. I hope to read more books by this author.

    12. I recieved a copy of the electronic version of Planetfall from L.E. Howel. I was intrigued by the description of the story. It has elements of several science fiction themes running through the book and it leaves openings for several additional stories set in the same world. A group of astronauts return to Earth after a failed colonization effort. They have been in suspended animation for an unknown length of time and return to silence from Earth. Their ship is failing and they must land or die. [...]

    13. I entered the contest for a free copy to read. I did not win. Afterwards, the author reached out to me and asked if I would like an ebook copy. I told him that I do not have an ereader and would rather dive into a book and its world through actual pages of a book. He graciously sent me a copy of his book. So appreciated. I honestly enjoyed the book. It had good pace to it, was descriptive, and decent characters that had personalities. I won't spoil the story by writing about it here. If you want [...]

    14. I enjoyed this book; it takes you on an interesting journey. Each situation leads to some answered questions, and some more questions posed. I found the main character, with all his strengths and flaws, and the other characters to be very believable, and quite addictive. The book is very well written, easy to read without being too simplistic or too cerebral- just the right balance. We learn from reading L E Howel's interview that this is Book 1 of a trilogy, Bring on Part 2. I will be waiting e [...]

    15. This is a wonderful book. The foreshadowing is nicely done, because it leat me wondering until the end. When you read it, you'll know what I mean.The story is interesting and characters defined. The main characer Birch grows and changes as do some of the others. There are a few grammatical issues, but they don't detract from the story.This will keep you thinking and guessing until the end. It will alook have you pondering the human condition.One of the best I've read in 2014.

    16. I enjoyed this book. I really did. The story is gripping, the writing is natural, but the characters are a little flat for my liking - there's not really anyone to love or hate. I wasn't bothered about them at all. I just wanted more of the story!The story left a few things not quite cleared up for me. Hopefully those loose ends will be tied up, and the characters developed a little more in future books.This is a writer to watch out for.

    17. I won this book on Good reads.It was stunning from the first paragraph.The words made a movie in my mind and the people were authentic.It is full of action, mystery and I loved the ending. I had an idea of what was going on but it still surprised me a bit.One of the best Scifi books I've read in a while.

    18. I would like to thank L E Howel for sending me a copy of Planetfall. I am always up for trying something new and this book didn't disappoint. There isn't much that I can add that hasn't already been said, but I do recommend to give this book a try. I will now look forward to reading more from this author.

    19. I really enjoyed this book. I had a hard time putting it down and even when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it and what was going to happen next! Very intriguing and well written. I wish it would have been longer!

    20. I won this book in the First Reads Giveaway.I was surprised as to how much I enjoyed reading this book, as it's not normally my genre. I would recommend to all who enjoy a good science fiction read.

    21. I had to stop after every couple of chapters and simply ponder what I had read. The descriptions are quite vivid, the story flows nicely and I still can't tell if I like or despise the main character. Towards the end I thought I had it all figured out, but I ended up being surprised. This was a really good read and I'm looking forward to reading what comes next in this series.

    22. I began reading this novel with trepidation. Modern science fiction, with few exceptions, has been disappointing and stagnate for quite some time. Too often the characters are one-note archetypes plugged into their respective roles to push along a contrived plot with no room for growth or personality. Yes the plots can be interesting but if you can't relate to the characters then there is no real depth to the book.L.E. Howel seems to have taken this to heart. The characters the author imagines a [...]

    23. Colonel Ratliff and a volunteer crew were blasted into space in Hypnos III in order to set up a distant planet for colonization. They were in a frozen state in order to survive the journey of hundreds of years. The journey was a failure. When they tried to contact earth for ordersno one answered. After a heated debate it was decided that they would return to earth. When they returned it was nothing like the earth that they had left behind. It was scary. It was hostile. It was deadly. Because the [...]

    24. *I recieved this book as a present from the author. I've read the Kindle version. The author didn't ask for a review, but I thought it was the right thing to do.*I thought the book was terrific! Timetravel with a mix of action, adventure and a bit of psychology in it. Some of the characters were given background information, which made them more likeable and understanding, though some of the characters are still a mystery to me. You'll get to know the characters more the more you read, which act [...]

    25. *free copy received from author in exchange for an honest review*I found Planetfall to be quite an engaging read. The plot was well thought out. The story line, though I would have preferred a bit more action, was great. The author kept me guessing throughout the whole story. Some might think it was too confusing, but I thought it completely drew me into the story. The main distractions keeping me from rating this five stars has to do with editing. At some points I thought how the author phrased [...]

    26. Sometime you don't know what to expect when reading something from a brand new author, but this is an excellent first book!In 'Planetfall', author L.E. Howel has orchestrated a masterpiece! This book falls across a few different genres, such as time travel, space travel, science fiction, past and future lives, militaria, geopolitics; along with a touch of pre and post apocalyptic-ism. Overall giving it a broad spectrum reader audience appeal!Several plot twists, about face, and surprises, but a [...]

    27. A really good, fast paced page turner of a book that gives you a scary look at one possible future of America and leaves you with the haunting question what if what you are running to is worse than what you run from? (view spoiler)[The failed terraforming mission Hypnos III returns to earth to find America has become a twisted, horrifying, parody of the once proud free country it once was. It's inhabitants broken into two groups the Ares who live like wild animals but enjoy their freedom and tho [...]

    28. I received an e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This book shows a reason why you can can go home. Major Thomas Birch and his crew were sent on a mission with the understanding that they could not come home. The mission to colonization a planet failed. Major Birch decides to return home.In earth time, it has been a few hundred years in earth term so they do not know what they will find. Nothing is the same of course. It is a story that keeps your attention , It is one of the [...]

    30. First of all I would like to thank L. E. Howell and for the opportunity to read and review this book!! ***SPOILER ALERTS***I really enjoyed the story and saw no significant issue with the plot and how the story played out. It was well written with only 3 or 4 minor grammar issues where a word in the sentence was omitted. Still easily readable without being annoying.
