"Excellent entertaining Sci-Fi. First novel in the series,
it is well-written with interesting well-developed characters.
The story line is complicated with lots of misdirection
leading to the unexpected conclusion... I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys well-written Sci-Fi. 2019"

"Thomas Stone Weaves a Captivating Storyline with first in Harry Irons' Trilogy, To the Stars.
This is an exceptionally well-developed traditional science fiction. It describes a probable future
for human space travel and our encounter with two other intelligent life forms,
one primitive and one more technologically advanced than humans from earth.
I also liked his premise that it will take corporate profits
to really fund space exploration.

As much as I love fantasy, it was a real delight to read such an interesting story line.
The characters were fascinating. One of the best parts
about this book is that I found the protagonist likeable quickly
so that my interest in his story pulled me along.
I found the whole cast believable and generally likeable.

Thomas Stone provided everything necessary to a good yarn: challenges and tests to be overcome, idealism, realism, greed, self-interest, egocentric characters, noble individuals, romance, character conflict, variety of personalities, surprises, and interesting cultures."

"5.0 out of 5 stars. Read it! This is my kind of science fiction.
Alien worlds, alien creatures and alien technology. The story is captivating
and it was hard to put done at any point in the series.
The characters were well formulated and easy to identify with
as human with all their strengths and flaws.
Each book as good as its predecessor!"

"Completely Addictive - Excellent Series. Give us more!
I got this book as a free Kindle book and really enjoyed it.
It is part of a series of three books.
I immediately bought the entire Harry Irons Trilogy.
Aliens, space travel, black holes, time travel, and even a good love story.
All the characters in this series are excellent and the story line never drags.
You'll have trouble putting the book down when it's bedtime.
The advanced technology is interesting, realistic, and believable.
You'll regret it when you close the page on the last book... Excellent writer!"
