Tennessee author Sam B. Miller II made his literary debut with his book, THE ORIGIN OF F.O.R.C.E. followed by the equally impressive other book sin the series, DAWN OF CHRYSALIS, and EVOLUTION OF F.O.R.C.E. His fourth success was simply titled SMITH. Sam received his education firm the University of Tennessee - Bachelor of Science degree in Finance, and a Master of Business Administration degree in Finance. There is no evidence from his biographical data that he has published articles or short stories on the genre he has chosen for his books of science fiction, but it is evident that he has a keen interest in fantasy and how fantasy can prophecy possible reality. Science Fiction tales, being fantasy, are enhanced when the author makes the decision to include contemporary world situations in the supernatural mix. And that is precisely what Sam does with U-10, Sam’s fifth novel. Referencing Afghanistan, now daily in the news with ongoing conflicts, brings a seed of reality to this excellent sci-fi mystery. The fine tuned prose includes a healthy aspect of humor, not usually seen in thrillers such as this book. But that feature is evident form the opening paragraphs: ‘”I have an assignment for you.” The voice came from the top of a high dais. The lights in the room were positioned to create darkness at the top of the platform to hide the identity of the speaker. Koritt Diviak had stood before the dais on so many prior occasions, he didn’t bother to see who hid in the darkness. No wasting time and effort in a fruitless endeavor. “I hop it’s more challenging than the last one. Examining worms is not my idea of fun.” ‘Your job is not to have fun. It is to do as I command.” Koritt scowled but remained at attention…’ and almost inadvertently we find ourselves on another planet… Sam offers a solid synopsis for this story: ` Koritt Diviak’s assignment was simple—travel to Earth and return with a human specimen, along with samples of their technology. After Koritt’s transport crashes in the desert of Afghanistan, 10th Mountain Division Lieutenant Ty Lavender commandeers the ship, along with the U-10— the most ingenious technology in the galaxy focused into a weapon with multiple capabilities—and uses it to protect his team from local insurgents, who want retribution. Things heat up when special operative Lincoln Frost shows up, determined to appropriate the alien technology for SEED, the top-secret, power-hungry US paramilitary agency tasked with eliminating threats to national security. Thinking a breeding pair will be even more valuable to his home planet, despite the animosity between them, Koritt captures both Lavender and Frost, along with the U-10, and waits for help. But rescue isn’t coming …and the humans are more intelligent, and resourceful, than Koritt anticipated. As the true purpose of Koritt’s mission comes to light, the battle begins. Under attack from all sides, hidden agendas emerge, and Koritt, Lavender, and Frost—all at odds with each other—will do whatever it takes to ensure victory.’ This is an especially fine new direction for Sam B. Miller, blending fact, possible fact, humor, mystery, fantasy and human interest into one very successful novel. Grady Harp, August 19 This book is free to borrow from Kindle Unlimited

Book description:​

Koritt Diviak’s assignment was simple—travel to Earth and return with a human specimen, along with samples of their technology. After Koritt’s transport crashes in the desert of Afghanistan, 10th Mountain Division Lieutenant Ty Lavender commandeers the ship, along with the U-10— the most ingenious technology in the galaxy focused into a weapon with multiple capabilities—and uses it to protect his team from local insurgents, who want retribution.

Things heat up when special operative Lincoln Frost shows up, determined to appropriate the alien technology for SEED, the top-secret, power-hungry US paramilitary agency tasked with eliminating threats to national security. Thinking a breeding pair will be even more valuable to his home planet, despite the animosity between them, Koritt captures both Lavender and Frost, along with the U-10, and waits for help.

But rescue isn’t coming…and the humans are more intelligent, and resourceful, than Koritt anticipated. As the true purpose of Koritt’s mission comes to light, the battle begins. Under attack from all sides, hidden agendas emerge, and Koritt, Lavender, and Frost—all at odds with each other—will do whatever it takes to ensure victory. Now they must work together if they—and the planet—are going to survive.
