Eleuthera is Science Fiction brimming with fascina

on 5/2/2011

I wasn't sure what to expect from this novel as I dove into the opening Prologue. Clearly there were big ideas at work here. And then you turn the page and the story immediately grabs you. Many stories try to immerse you in a distant future Earth and universe, while getting bogged down in the process. I can tell you Ralph Ewig's Eleuthera creates and immerses you in this new future universe very effectively. However, this new world building doesn't detract or slow down the character development, intimate personal relationships, or the exciting science fiction tale that he wants to tell. In no time at all you are following the new pilot named Rascor Griffin as he begins piloting the liner SANSSOUCI. Before you can catch your breath the world of "jSpace" becomes a central focal point of the novel as we begin to learn how it allows humans to travel nearly instantly around the universe. This is the kind of hard science fiction story that successfully makes you care about its characters and protagonists in a way that fans of Clarke, Vinge, Asimov, Heinlen and other classic science fiction writers should really enjoy. Rascor gets himself caught up in a complex and deadly plot involving jSpace and the potential for a form of life after death. Intricately woven together, these futuristic and seemingly fantastical plot elements are made quite believable and realistic, allowing the story to move toward its very exciting finale. Eleuthera is a novel I can unreservedly recommend to readers who enjoy their science fiction loaded with cool, believable, futuristic concepts and an exciting and fun story to read. I highly recommend this novel. Brad Blake Author: Blue Third Read More

Product Overview

Humanity has spread over several star systems, but the technology used to bridge the void conceals a mystery yet to be solved. While society is directed to the agenda of The Circle, its membership pursues advanced biotechnology to ensure their status far into the future. Welcome aboard the SANSSOUCI - the decadent flagship of Trenton Star Lines - where a traumatized heiress seeks to uncover her identity, a space-borne Viking charts the course through the deep, and an inexperienced pilot struggles to safely travel the darkest depths of the human psyche. Over a decade in the making, this compelling debut novel paints a complex picture of humanity''s future filled with visceral emotions - and where nothing is what it first seems to be.About the Author Born and raised in Western Europe, Ralph Ewig immigrated to the US in 1992 at the age of twenty. He has lived in both the Seattle and Los Angeles metropolitan areas, and holds three degrees in the field of aeronautics and astronautics from the University of Washington. To date, he has worked as a musician, a roadie, a lumberjack, a vineyard apprentice, and with many government and commercial space organizations; he is currently a Mission Operations Engineer at Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX).
