The possibility of extraterrestrial life has always fascinated people. In fact, this fascination has spawned many science fiction novels and movies like Steven Spielberg’s “E.T.” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” In his exciting new book, AD ASTRA PER ASPERA, author Henry Westwood explores the possible future if extraterrestrial life truly existed.
Earth is heading into a decline ravaged by plague and riots becoming a way of life, given the enormous unemployment, fuel rationing and power cuts. Sea level continued to rise with earth’s glaciers and the North Pole ice shrinking for fifty years. And then there is the little known factor of earth’s terrestrial neighbours from the Sirius star system, the Siriusians, who were in fact secretly planning an invasion. Now a war council has been called together to fight a war against a seemingly unbeatable foe.
One of the planet’s hopes lies in Penny, whom Professor Trevor Nuttall with Dr. Victoria Nuttall nee Hoilebe befriends. Originally Lord Peregrine Henry Merchant Pennywort, he had been abducted at the time of the Great Fire of London. He had, since 1666, served the Siriusians very well, in exchange for longevity and knowledge. Recently, he feels less inclined to do the aliens’ bidding and finds himself confused on where his loyalties lie. Together, they hatch a plan to give Earth a fighting chance for a better future. But can they win against these powerful foes? Readers can find out as they follow AD ASTRA PER ASPERA.
This book will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Exhibit in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12 to 16, 2011.
