About Ark of the Apocalypse

Earth is on the verge of becoming a dead planet.

The polar ice caps melted long ago, and it’s been decades since the last raindrop fell. Ocean levels rise a dozen meters, and forest fires rage on a global scale. Eleven billion people dying of thirst wage water wars against each other as extinction looms.

Humanity needs a new planet. As Earth deteriorates, the nation states desperately work together to build a mechanism for recolonization. And so the Magellan II is born, the first starship capable of interstellar travel.

The future of the human race is tasked to ten thousand colonists-now homeless but for the vastness of space and the decks of Magellan II. A distant planet offers hope of survival, but it’s a strange, watery world inhabited by giant reptiles.

Humanity is starting over, but survival isn’t guaranteed.


Praise for The Ark of the Apocalypse  

Rating: 5 out of 5.  Each new and imaginative chapter opened doors to situations and realities that were impeccably crafted as this epic tale unfolded. It is hard for me to review this book in detail without spoiling the ever expanding plot. If you’ve ever wondered what a hybrid book encapsulating and blending the visions of Ray Bradbury, Tom Clancy and J R R Tolkien would be like, read this novel. Amazon review

 Rating: 5 out of 5.  I was spellbound the entire time. Exquisitely written beautifully edited. A must read. I finished it in 3 days. It was impossible to put it down. And now I’m left feeling bereft because book 2 is not out yet. Amazon review

 Rating: 5 out of 5.   The many characters are properly fleshed out and I was on the edge of my seat all the way until the end of the book. It has an ending that rounds of the story well, while leaving plenty of space for one’s imagination to create a vast number of follow-up scenarios. Absolutely fantastic! Amazon review
