This is the second book I have read and reviewed for this author. The first was Blind Sight and my review can be read here.
Earth is a mess and the ruling corporation is trying to get people into space to colonize other planets. Living under corporate rule is horrendous--if you don't agree--you disappear never to be heard from again. Profits are the name of the new game and the larger corporations are always trying to get on top so they can call the shots. What they don't know is that a couple of their spaceships have made it. They all crash landed but some of the people survived. In one of those ships there were a bunch of black labs who thankfully did get let out of their cages and were able to survive.
Because of the difference in the atmospheres these dogs became highly intelligent! They befriended those who were good and stayed away from those who were not. There was already a colony of humans who were living happily when the 3rd spaceship crash landed. Unfortunately not all these people were good and one of them became a dictator making the survivors of that ship miserable.
A lot of what you will read in this book is already happening but I don't want to ruin it for you. It is also the first in a series and the author left me hanging--------I want to know what happens next!!
About the Book: (from Smashwords )
Slingshot is an adventure set in the future. Issues today (environment damage, shrinking resources, inept politicians, bizarre dictators, religious fanatics and economic chaos) are projected into an era when Earth will no longer support our bludgeoning population. A sister planet is found, a method to travel is discovered (the Slngshot Principle) and two of our first long range missions crash and are marooned on an alien planet. Not quite the start they envisioned but a clean slate and new beginning regardless. A story of courage, passion, faith and fortitude.
