After their shuttle meeting with an accident and accidentally landing on a strange planet, the three astronauts return to Earth with the help of the aliens. However, they end up returning in the wrong time—in the future.

What they experience truly shocks them. They return to a time when separation, division, and hatred rules. Indeed, they return to Earth. But is it really home? What has happened to their beloved planet? And what has happened to their country, the most powerful nation on Earth? Is it still the most powerful country on Earth? Whose doing is it?

In a place where a human sees and treats a fellow human defines his existence. In a time when survival is the most important thing, the human spirit of endurance and sharing shows how life can be when things become dire.
In this second book of The Galaxy Series, join the adventures of the three astronauts and an alien on Earth. Take an emotional rollercoaster ride as they travel through America, see what they see and ask yourself—‘is this what I want to leave my next generation?’


‘Return to Earth’ is the second book in the Galaxy series and a sequel of ‘Beyond The Milky Way’. After having liked the first book, I was curious to know what happens to the protagonists and how they ‘return to earth’.

Plot summary:

After successfully retrieving the aliens’ ship and escaping from the Shadow People, Don, Terry and Kim set off in the spaceship. They intend to drop Tom to his region on the way, but when they are chased by the Shadow People, the aliens directly send the ship to Earth. Thus, Tom is forced to go with them, leaving behind his much tensed father.

However, in the hurry to escape the Shadow People in order to not lose the ship, the aliens accidentally send the astronauts to Earth in the wrong time. Having time travelled while on Etoo, Kim, Don and Terry have already seen Earth’s future and how devastating their beloved planet looks. However, it is now time for them to practically see and experience it.

The four companions land on Earth in the future and are shell-shocked to see its miserable state. While all the water bodies have dried up and land has become barren, America as well as most of the countries in the world have been divided into parts. People are struggling for survival and finding it difficult to arrange for basic everyday needs.

The only hope for Kim, Terry and Don is to go back to Etoo and return to Earth in their time in order to change the situation and prevent Earth from getting engulfed by destruction. However, a group of rogues steal the solar panels on the ship, which are important for the ship to recharge and take the four back to Etoo. While going to Los Angeles to retrieve solar panels, the four face various tricky, scary as well as adventurous situations.

Writing style:

The writing style, as in the previous book, is simple and devoid of difficult terms. However, there are many grammatical mistakes, which is a bit of a turn off.

My perception:

In comparison to the first book, the second one doesn’t go up to the expectations. Although the book is a nice and interesting read, the number of errors makes it sound a bit off. However, the way the author has explained the dangers that Earth would encounter in the future is remarkable. It sends out a message to each one of us to safeguard our planet and stop our harmful activities right away that is destroying our dear home. If we continue doing everything wrong that we are doing right now, Earth may end up in a similar or a worse state as described in the book.

You hardly come across with the thriller book which is based in the corporate world. The cover and the title of this book is an instant catch. As I have not read much of the corporate-based books, I was not sure to like this book. However, when I start reading this book, I found it truly amazing. I would like to congratulate the author for his debut book as well as would like to show my gratitude for giving me a chance to read and review it. 😊
