The Players by Robert Dennis Wilson

Book Description:
SCIENCE OPENED A DOOR - SOMETHING CAME THROUGH! This exciting Sci-Fi novel overflows with inter-dimensional visitors, psychic experimentation, threats of inter-dimensional warfare, disappearing people, lots of action, and enough romance to keep it interesting. Professor Horace Thompson and his team have just successfully completed a world-changing experiment in the newly legitimized science of Parapsychology. Using electronic devices that boost the mind's weak ESP signals, they successfully communicated thoughts over a distance of 56 miles. Suddenly their world changes even more. Their experiment opens a crack between dimensions and the form of a huge god-like alien temporarily materializes in front of them. Before he disappears, this apparently peaceful being informs them that his advanced race, the "Teachers", desires to not only once again assist mankind, as they have in the ancient past, but to also support them against their common interdimensional enemy. What does it all mean? Two ancient and diametrically opposed alien civilizations have for millennia chosen the planet Earth to be the ideological arena where they confront each other. One side champions Law and a society based on unchanging Absolutes; the other promotes Liberty, License, and Free Choice. Throughout the ages of Man, we, like unsuspecting pieces on a chess board, have been chosen to be the PLAYERS in their deadly game. But a change is taking place, one which will force every inhabitant of Earth to choose active membership in one side or the other. The alien Overlords are suddenly moving out of the shadows and our planet is about to become the devastated battleground - the Arena - where they will openly face each other in final and ultimate conflict. And God help the human who gets in their way or who chooses the wrong side! This manuscript garnered the "Alpha Award" (presented to a new author of fiction) at the Sandy Cove Christian Writers Conference in Northeast, MD.

My Thoughts:
This is a thrilling ride! The world changes when Horace Thompson hooks up his two helpers, David and Sashi, to the 'PAX' machine. Both have ESP capabilities and when hooked up to the machine, a door is openedthat wasn't even known to exist! Pedadog is what, or should I say who, comes through that door. He claims to be there to help humans but there is a common enemy that must be delt with first. The ride starts here and you won't put this book down.
The author does a wonderful job of making the characters real. I honestly felt like I was in the story along with them. The story also makes you think about beliefs and possibilities. There is a unique point of view and story here that I won't do 'spoilers' on but if you like SciFi, you will enjoy this book.
I rate this a 5/5. I can't wait to read the next 'chapter' in this story!
