Imagine waking up a hundred and eighty years after you left Earth to find the ship you’re on has finally made it to its destination. This is a truth Cariad comes to accept from the moment she opens her eyes.

Cariad and her colleagues have been tasked with helping the new generation of humans in colonizing a new planet. One that’s fully of possibilities and resources. The process might be daunting, but she’s willing to do everything possible to ensure the process goes off without a hitch. Survival won’t be easy. If she and the new generation work together, however, they’ll be able to make their dreams of colonization a reality.

I love science fiction. Reading, watching it, it never gets old. I devour it whenever possible. J. J. Green has crafted quite a believable world. One where mankind is on its last legs, all because man didn’t take care of what Earth bequeathed him.

While this story is fiction, it’s reminiscent of the hardships we’re having currently on Earth. Mind you, the situation isn’t as grave as it’s depicted in The Concordia Deception. We still have time to fix things if we so wish to.

J. J. has set up such an engrossing story that you want to know about Cariad and the rest of the characters. There’s enough back story provided that you don’t find yourself wondering about the how’s and why’s, giving the reader an immersive experience when it comes to the hardships and realities the characters experience.

I honestly can’t wait to see what’s coming next for the Cariad and the others. How will they fare now that they’ve gotten things under way? Only time will tell.


Sabotage at Homecoming

After one hundred and eighty years in deep space, the colony starship Nova Fortuna has reached its destination and long-awaited Arrival Day.

Many have sacrificed everything for this moment. Leaving her life and family on Earth, genetic specialist Cariad has spent the trip in cryonic suspension, while colonist Ethan carries the hopes of six generations of volunteers who knew they would never see their final goal.

A devastating attack on the new settlement forced Cariad and Ethan together, and now they must locate and defeat a deadly foe determined to sabotage humanity’s first deep space colony.

Isolated and alone, a fractured crew of colonists struggle for survival on a planet where the enemy could be anyone.

The Concordia Deception is book one in the compelling, provocative space colonization series, Space Colony One.
