    1. I seriously struggled with how to rate this book mostly because I haven't read many indie authors. So, my frame of reference is primarily traditionally published books - books that have been thoroughly edited, revised, and put through the ringer that is the publishing process. This book clearly hasn't gone that process.The book has a good premise. And, for that reason alone, I pushed through the whole book. But, there are a few things that made it a real struggle to ride out the entire novel. Th [...]

    2. ***ABANDONED BOOK***In 1908, a comet exploded over the Tunguska area in Siberia. The explosion missed populated areas by a matter of hours. Now, a hundred years later, another, even larger, comet is on a collision course with Earth. Kept hidden to avoid panic, it is down to a select few who know the secret to devise a means of saving the world. Will they make it? Or is it already too late?The Tunguska Blast is one of those things that despite the answer being known still tends to get swept up in [...]

    3. Intriguing start to a "natural disaster" sci-fi seriesI love all those exciting "end of the world" movies, and this book reminded me of that. A comet is on a deadly path to Earth, so the select few in the Inner Circle make plans on how to save the world. Usually I don't like when a story just stops instead of ending at the end of a book, but this one I didn't mind so much, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    4. Second time I've read this book I have read this series once already but couldn't resist starting it again. The way the series meshes is wonderful and the characters react how you would imagine' real people' would. Really good length and doesn't drag. Love it.

    5. I found this book very thrilling. I am starting book 2&3 tomorrow. Characters are well written, I get annoyed at some, frustrated with others and cry for others. I RECOMMEND this book for those who are interested in dystopia.

    6. Very well writtenlove a good book. Lots of twists and turns not one you can figure out. Look forward to reading the next.

    7. The Inner Circle I gave the book 5 stars because I couldn't put this book down. I have already bought the next 6 books.

    8. Loved it and have already ordered the second and third in the series - it has 12 parts! I love space adventures!

    9. Abandoned book after a jelly-donut eating cop made an appearance, and then 2 characters watched a comet with an orbit around our sun get deflected in real time by a unknown black hole, and then a scene with a couple of pantomime Russian cliche characters that just made me think the Science behind the Sci-Fi is too ridiculous for consumption and the writing was dreadful.

    10. This was hard to give two stars to, but it is an okay book. It is thoroughly predictable. And (sadly) ends on a cliff hanger - being part of a triology. However, this did not compel me to get the next book. I'm done with the stories, don't care about the characters. Totally meh.

    11. Tension FilledGood story line with interesting characters, including one that you just love to hate. A number of surprising twists and turns.

    12. It's been years since I read a Sci-Fi book and I found this book to be riveting, exciting and hard to put down. I loved the characters, though there were a few spins off the main plot it didn't take away from what is a very exciting novel. However, readers beware, this is not a standalone novel. So the solution is not to be found at the end of the novel in fact I'm not sure in when you might reach the end as I have since discovered there are 12 novels in this series. I won't have the patience to [...]

    13. I was intrigued by this story idea and decided to give this a shot. As a supporter of self-published works, I applaud Mr. George for stepping out with such an ambitious project of 12 books in this series. That said, I did enjoy this story for the most part and will continue on with the next 2 books. I did find James, Earl, Sara, Nick and Josh believable and well-written. Unfortunately, I had a very hard time "swallowing" President Marshall, the secrecy of only 6 people being in the loop and how [...]

    14. Good premise: A comet, nine years out, will hit the earth. The only possibility of saving the earth is to deflect the path of the comet. The "inner circle," composed of six men including the president of the US, decide that it can only be done by deflecting the comet's orbit by the force of a nuclear bomb. How these six men can accomplish this and keep it a secret from everybody stretches the imagination a little but isn't that what we do when we read science fiction? Anyway, there is a good bui [...]

    15. The people in the book are just cardboard caricatures, although there is some improvement by the end of the book. I find the premise very unbelievable. The director of NASA and a junior high teacher find a comet heading to the earth, get word to the president via the secretary of defense, and these four along with the presidents chief of staff and an astronaut become the inner circle. They keep their knowledge a secret, come up with a plan to divert the comet,construct a space probe, and transfe [...]

    16. 2 1/2 *s only for readability.You can read it. It keeps you interested in seeing what comes next & then it just ends you'll go on to the next book to get an ending to this one. It's not really sic-fi. It's more political intrigue with lots of unbelievability. Not my cup of tea. I won't be looking for more from this author.

    17. An enjoyable doomsday readI took off one star on this review for the following reasons: · several editing errors · confusion about the child's relevance to the story · doubt about the science that the President and other members of the Inner Circlerelied upon for their actions would be provided by a middle school science teacherThese were minor problems that were a small distraction to an otherwise very entertaining book. I look forward to reading the next installment. While Kevin George is a [...]

    18. Inner Circle (Comet Clement 1)While this book is a part of a series and is pretty well written, I found myself wondering what's the point while I was reading. I didn't really care for the contrived intrigue of the governmental characters, nor their two dimensional characteristics. The nongovernmental characters were slightly better developed but had a lifespan of just a few pages or a chapter or two. I just couldn't get into liking anyone for very long and the story kept diverging into backstory [...]

    19. A great start to the book, but then unfortunately it seemed to lose its way. Two dimensional characters with no real 'reason', too many scenes that seemed to be just for padding. (view spoiler)[ And Neil was going to be alone in a spacecraft for months (even years?) without any communication with anyone? Staving to death? (if I read that wrong, I stand to be corrected)God help the poor sod. I cannot see how he could possibly stay sane. The dissolution of NASA was also totally improbable.(hide sp [...]

    20. Good pacing. Nice start to the seriesHaving read one of George's later comet Clement books I was eager to see how it all started. He does a good job of pacing - when I saw that there were so many books I was wondering how he could fill all of them and not go down the rathole of minutiae. I was pleasantly surprised to see that wasn't the case. Just enough details to get yours interested and several twists and turns to keep you interested. Looking forward to reading more of the series.

    21. I finished this in just over a day. Is it great writing? No. Is the plot feasible? I haven't a clue. Nevertheless, I was sucked into the story. It has a little bit of The Right Stuff mixed in, and honestly, the plot isn't any more ridiculous that any of the doomsday movies out there. The book was reasonably well edited, but it could have used another pass through. Still, I'm willing to move on to the next book in the series. Not bad for a freebie.

    22. This was a very interesting book and a good start to a series. The author took a topic that has been in the headlines lately, mainly undiscovered comets/asteroids striking the earth,and turn it into a book series. The circumstances surrounding the discovery is very believable and the actions following same. The action is top notch, even though is more a simmering type because the reader starts to think that no way can this happen and they get away with it.

    23. A very good bookThere is a comet out there that is going to destroy earth. The govt undertakes a plan, involving only six people who know of a secret plan to destroy the comet. This is the first book of the story. It is well written and leaves off with you wondering if the astronauts on board the secret mission spaceship will live long enough to reach the comet. I think you will enjoy this book.

    24. Not bad. Reminds me a lot of Armageddo, with a different set of characters. I know it is an overly simplistic comparison based solely on the primary subject matter. Characters were largely believable and engaging. I'm uncertain how I feel about the time devoted to the 1908 Siberia setting, didn't fit with the development of the plot real well, at least not at this point.Overall, I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of the series.

    25. Kevin George has written a very thought-provoking look into the minds of key people in government. Comet Clement is a good example of how those in political power hide the truth and manipulate the public. This book is also a very frightening look into one of the potential crises facing mankind. The author definitely needs a new editor, however, if you enjoy sci-fi, you will be hooked on this series. Very well done!

    26. I purchased the book on primarily because it was free and looked really cool. Well on a road trip I decided to open it up because I thought it was a review book I received. Wow this book is a must read. Post apocalyptic fiction is the best. I was surprised it was over 300 pages because there are 13 books in the series and they all look to be long which means #bingereading

    27. The book is more interesting than exciting. Some pieces are a little hard to believe, but other things are well thought out (the second phase of the plan, for instance). I was expecting the story to end at the end of the book, but there's a long string of books in the series. This one got better towards the end, so the next could get going quicker, and may up the excitement.

    28. Would you want to know?What a fabulous series starter, sometimes a little and believe , and yet many parts of it I can actually see happening . Would the US government be the only ones who know , would not Russia have also been aware ? Perhaps with the whole world's knowledge things would have gone smoother ? All questions for me to ponder has I go to delve into book two.
