About the Author

I'm a Norwegian writer, living just outside of Oslo, Norway. I write mainly science fiction, but I also try my hand at fantasy. In my writing I try to combine my interests in science and politics with psychology (which I incidentally have a Master's degree in - never thought I'd use it in this way!). I think my diverse interests and background gives me a few valuable perspectives that enhance my writing, and although my main literary interest lies in the scifi and fantasy sphere, I enjoy a good thriller or horror now and then.

From my reviews I learn that different readers enjoy different aspects of my books. Some enjoy the adventure; some find a message of hope, while others have said they find themselves nodding as they read it. One of my favorite reviews for Exodus said that "This book is science fiction in great form. It doesn't just make you think about the future, it really makes you think about the world around you today"

When I was a kid, I used to draw cartoons and make up all kinds of stories. It still took many years before I learned one can actually reach an audience all over the world, and even longer before I actually finished a book. Now I am thrilled to connect with readers and I'd love to hear from you as well!

I love the process of writing, and sometimes feel like I'm living the adventures of my characters. I guess that's the trick; to write the books you'd love to read (although I don't presume to know the formula for a bestseller - yet). So what's my best book so far? The one I'm currently writing...

As first in the trilogy I am afraid it will not motivate me to read the remaining two. The writing comes across as that of a very green novice who had an interesting idea but could not convincingly deliver it. The writing is a bit juvenile which, but for the occasional use of the f-word, I would categorize it as YA fiction. No strong protagonist emerged until fairly late in the book.

--- Spoiler Alert ----

PRO
1. Interesting concept, though one that has been treated (somewhat differently and better) by others before.
2. Interesting political context hypothesized but one not fully developed. It was necessary, however, to make the story somewhat plausible.

CON
1. Writing style: way too much narration used to provide background of characters and situations. In some cases the investment (when made) is lost by elimination of a character.
2. Politics: unrealistic behavior of the world outside the US, and even within the US. Unrealistic to think the dooming trajectory of the Devastator would go unnoticed and un-analyzed by a large part of the world for so long.
3. Many technical problems: a) slingshot effect around Jupiter adding more than 1000 times Jupiter's orbital speed to that of the spacecraft (impossible), b) a man tethered to a spacecraft coasting in free-space becomes unhooked and starts drifting away from the spacecraft with an INCREASING speed (no mechanism for acceleration provided), c) a spacecraft is coasting along at 25% the speed of light and upon approaching the target solar system is able to fully brake using only “magnetic sails" (unexplained) - the only known mechanism that could affect braking magnetically would require a magnetic field some fifteen orders of magnitude greater than that of our own solar system.

The author apparently also writes fantasy. I recommend he stick to fantasy where the laws of the known universe are freely ignored.

I enjoy apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic type stories, especially with a good SciFi bent. This looked like it was going to fit the bill, and didn't disappoint. The author took a slightly different tactic than many, with a lot of emphasis on the failing governments of the world and how those failings play into the efforts to save some of the human race.

There is less "technical details" and more "people" details, with good characterizations and dialog. At times I wished there was a bit more background and detail, but I like a rather "deep" book at times that might be boring to many.

The pacing was good, with enough suspense to make me keep turning the pages (I stayed up past my bedtime to finish it).

Note that I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

This book is similar, very similar, to When Worlds Collide, which--despite being terribly dated and limited by the social constructs and science of its era (1930s)--basically got the story done right. We now have sky-survey telescopes like WISE that essentially film the sky. Far more powerful survey scopes are coming online in the next 6 years or so that should even be able to find the hypothesized 9th planet, if it exists, which will be incredibly faint and slow moving. So, in the future they will not even be able to spot something the size of a rogue planet coming from another system? The reason no such telescopes exist is that future humans gave up astronomy and telescopes after Mars colonization failed. Seriously?!?!?!?!

Here are some of the book's problems:

1 - Bad science, too many to list, but most of them are jaw-droppers. For those of you who think I'm too picky, this is Science Fiction. A rogue planet would have been naked-eye visible for a long time before it hit Mars. We see Mars without a telescope, don't we? And just so you know, the Jupiter gravity-assist would not get a spaceship anywhere close to relativistic speeds, much less 25% the SOL. The spaceship's braking mechanism also is scientifically absurd. In a novel of manners or romance, this might be more forgivable but this is science fiction.

2 - Humanity gave up astronomy and space science? War, maybe, perhaps even Pop-Tarts, but space? Yet the world is able to assemble a craft capable of going to a system 40 light years away? Without telescopes and astronmers, and for that matter telescopes vastly advanced over what we have now, how (pray tell) would we be able to pick out a possible habitable planet? It took almost 10 years to get a little tin can (Apollo 11) to the moon and back.

I received this book free to read and review.
This is part one of the trilogy and a fairly short read although the other two parts have not yet been published it forms effectively a long introduction as it sets the scene for the following books. From early in the book it is apparent that the earth is going to be destroyed by a rogue planet and plans have to be made to save the human race. This is an idea that has been worked many times before however what gives this book a different slant on it is the build-up to the evacuation. The democratic system in the USA has broken down and there are groups wanting to ensure that the rulers do not continue in the same way on a new planet, how this is to be achieved and who is in this group is unclear but will no doubt be revealed in the later books. There are a number of hints and questions that are not answered for example are other nations doing similar things and is the earth actually destroyed. Certainly an intriguing start to a trilogy although I am not sure I am intrigued enough to read the next two books.
