Book Description

After alien ships have invaded the human territories, destroying planets and sending the survivors fleeing to Earth, the Terran government orders the refugees to settle a new planet. One that has just been terraformed.

Jeff Koenig, one of the few survivors from the Delious system, leads a team of scientists to the planet Dauphin to rebuild his life. They have 70 days until the ship returns with the first wave of colonists, but from Day 1 everything goes wrong.

As the days count down, the colonists watch the skies and pray that the Hurluk won't find them, or Earth, before they are rescued.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of this world! June 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The title says it all; this story is out of this world. Literally... In the space of a few pages Liana manages to bring you on a trip into a world where politics mix with space travel, and just like our own world, when the government gets their hands on something, it usually goes poorly.

Add in a dash of danger, terraforming, volcanoes and a little love, and you get a great read.

This story is a short, so be prepared for a couple unanswered questions, but perhaps one day Liana will consider taking this world to new heights, and more pages!

The characters could easily have supported a longer work. I enjoyed listening to the bicker about the terraforming process, what was safe, what wasn't, with the growing sense of doom either from the skies above or the earth below. Only a couple of "Huh?" moments where you have to say "I choose to enjoy it." The best judge of it, however, was that at the end of it, I wanted to see more interactions between these characters, a greater depth to the conflict than the short form could support. That's a pretty good sign.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong science fiction with a great voice August 15, 2012

For only being 6,000 words, this story really packs a punch. Brooks delivers with strong voice and great characters coupled with excellent and believable science. Loved this story!
