Product Description

Product 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.

HASH(0x9d3142c4) out of 5 stars Out of this world! June 5 2012
By Jamie Heppner - Published on
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!
HASH(0x9d31418c) out of 5 stars "But with the native from Escibul pouring in, humanity needs room to expand..." March 3 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Short Sci-Fi book poignantly illustrates why cutting corners when it comes to world-building is best avoided. Very good characterizations on both sides of the likeable/unlikeable equation made for some tense moments as the group try to determine their best means of survival as the world they have tried to manipulate falls apart around them. Book doesn't end with day "seventy" so be prepared to wonder what comes next as it ends on a cliffhanger. One I did enjoy!

This is a solid and enjoyable colonization story, with some interesting twists. I really enjoyed this story, and hope the author will write more stories in this universe- maybe even a follow up to this story.

A very good short story. Makes me hope there is a novel that follows and will fill in some of the blanks in information.

HASH(0x9d6468f4) out of 5 stars An Enjoyable read, which makes you wish for a deeper treatment Oct. 29 2012

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.
