Book Description

A collision in space leaves Captain Darien Stolt and his crew searching for a suitable planet on which to land their fatally wounded ship. The passengers, a group of Utopian colonists set on making a new home for themselves on a distant world, lose their founder and leader, Jacob Slowdon, in the crash. A new leader, Susan Stark, steps forward and lays claim to the new world on behalf of the colonists. She tells the captain that his crew, and the handful of aliens rescued from the other ship, must adopt their way of life. But that life wasn't supposed to include murder. Security Chief Todd Sureenon must do his best to apprehend the murderers.
It's a perilous start for a new civilization.
And So It Begins...

This book is part of the SEAMS16 series,
but it is not a SEAMS16 novel. There is no Space Equipment Authority
Maintenance Station 16, no one named Charlie, and no ZeeGee matches
being played in a field of poles. This story is a leap back in time to
the events that started the society that the SEAMS16 residents come
from.

About the Author

Born and raised in West Mitten, USA (Grand Rapids, MI), Eric still lives in the area in a house he built, (literally), with the help of his wife, Therese, and two sons, Eric Jr. and Nicholas, (and various other friends and relatives). The boys are grown and gone, although they both live in the area. Eric and Therese have managed to get past the empty nest syndrome and currently only share their home with their two dogs, Sable and Tucker, and a cat, Liza.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking Plot July 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A collision in space, between ships of two different species, changes the future as they know it. A vessel full of Earth colonist, with their own agenda and private crew, must take on a group of Koltins with their own cultural differences.

In a plot like a rollercoaster Mr. Thomasma takes us on an exciting and detailed ride. We experience the questions of theology and government as seen through the eyes of a wonderful diversity of well written characters.

This is not a fast read. It is a book full of detail, theories and moral questions. It is a very rewarding read. I look forward to more of Mr. Thomasma's musings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drama in deep space December 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Thoroughly enjoyed the sample that I have read. It is well put together and easy to get into and so I felt myself drawn to read more. The characters were developing nicely and the plot is compelling.
