The first book in the Hunted Earth series, published to tie in with the hardcover publication of its sequel, The Shattered Sphere.

The Earth has disappeared, but was it destroyed by an unauthorized gravity experiment, or was the planet kidnapped by an alien race? Humanity must discover the answer before it's too late.

***Spoiler FREE REVIEW***

This was a great Hard Sci-Fi novel that didn't get lost in the 'science' aspect. Had just the right mixture of hard science, plot, and characterization. It was written back in 1990 but doesn't feel dated. The writing is decent but the only problem is that the narration takes a little too much liberty with character related info dumps.

I think if the editor could have reduced each character related info dump by 35% then this book would have been more or less perfect. There were a few times I just skipped over the narration as it started to detract from the story

but, the story was pretty good, so I could overlook that minor flaw.

the other only 'minor' flaw was a plot hole, namely, the absence of our military. I would assume that in the future mankind (especially the future depicted here) would have a military.

anyways, even with those 2 flaws, the book was a great read, great story, and I would love to read more. Unfortunately, it looks like book 3 did not get published so the series will leave you hanging after book 2 :( so I guess i'm done with the series. Which is a shame, would have loved to see how it all turned out.

Roger M. Allen's "Ring of Charon" is great science-fiction. A hence-undiscovered alien race causes the Earth to disappear through a wormhole due to the unauthorized experiments of a gravity scientist, and the remaining off-Earth scientists try to find out what really happened. The story is told brillantly through the eyes of the human scientists, and the strange Charonians who plan to use the Earth for their own ends, which are not good for mankind. The way that the Charonians are Von Neumann creatures is a bit hard to swallow, as is the occasional overload of detail, as well the Naked Purple movement and the K-Crash, but Allen manages to be a master storyteller, and weaves a great story of human survival and the need for curiousity.

This was really wonderful story. The characters were bright and real. Their growth of character was well considered, making them even more believable. The science was really spooky: it could be true. The use of gravity waves for discovering knowledge is on the edge of our future. Speculation of ways and means is pushing the boundaries of our knowledge bringing the capability to use gravity waves to within our grasp.

The outstanding dilemma of the Earth being lost to some outside, alien power gives the story and characters the impetus for their growth and development.

There must be a sequel, and I will be looking for it.

This book, like its sequel is some of the best science fiction that I've ever had the privelege to read.

Unfortunately, the author leaves the reader hanging, waiting for a sequel to tie up all sorts of loose ends (intentionally, no doubt). The author has not, however, published the third book in the series.

It's been a 10 year wait so far. Only buy this book if you are willing to subject yourself to the heartache of needing to look for new Anderson every time you walk into a bookstore, but find nothing other than continuation of lesser men's work (Asimov, Lucas, etc).

This is my favorite serious science fiction book of all time. Two aspects put this book ahead of all the rest: scale and aliens. The size of space is actually treated honestly in this book. If somebody on Earth wants to talk with somebody on Pluto, they don't just pick up their subspace communicator and call them like they were next door, they send a message and wait a good, long time before they get an answer back. And let's face it, you probably know people more alien than most "aliens" in typical science fiction. This book's aliens are what aliens should be - as different from you as you are from a tree.

The third book in the series is still not written but don't let that stop you. By the time the third comes out, you'll be ready to read the first two again!

I found the book to be a very good read. I enjoyed the character development that did not take up too much of the story. I liked the story content, and found that it never got dry. The author gave enough detail without taking a whole chapter to describe what something was. I have read many books, and I can honestly say that very few come close to this one. It was great

This is a wonderful novel for sci-fi fans, and even those that are only recently getting into the genre. The concepts are not necessarily so far ahead of today's science (theory) that it just seems completely unbelievable. The only criticism that I have for it is that there are sooo many characters introduced and that the novel jumps between them soooo frequently that I sometimes had a difficult time keeping them straight. But otherwise a great novel. I'm eagerly searching for the next in the "Hunted Earth" series.

The Ring of Charon is a fantastic book and I could not wait for the second part to read. Unfortunaly, it took very long to finish it. Then, when the Shattered Sphere finaly found its way to the shop, I've had been waiting so long, that I read the first book again, and it was a pleasure, as I discovered and understood many things, I was not able to the first time. The Shatered Sphere starts off actually very slow, but when it starts going, it certainly lives more then up to the first part. Wow! That is truly "Hardcore Sience Fiction".

I'm just afraid, that I will never find out, how this amazing story will end as theres the stuff for a fantastic third book!

Outstanding books, which I will read over and over again, and who knows, maybe we will see the end of this great saga some day...
