Mark McGunegill, a writer and California native, has completed his first book “Star Testament”: a gripping and powerful work of modern fiction with twists and turns that make this enthralling page turner an engrossing obsession from start to finish.
On how to describe “Star Testament”, its message and its characters, author Mark McGunegill said, “The book is a Science Fiction/Adventure story set in the not too distant future. I was interested in reversing the typical roles of aliens and Earth people in many Sci-Fi stories and to make Earth people the strange visitors from another world with advanced technology. The book follows six explorers, three men and three women, who start out with common goals, but find themselves dealing with the natives of the new world in quite different ways based on their inner character and ambitions. The story is about people, not creatures or monsters. And the reader may feel they have taken a journey through time as well as space as they explore the inhabitants of Ceti 2 and the powerful force which influences them all.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Mark McGunegill’s adventurous tale is brimming with energy, settings that flood the mind, and characters that are unforgettable.
The discovery of a habitable planet around the star, Tau Ceti spawned a new era of scientific breakthrough in the late twenty-first century. Magnetic propulsion was perfected, at long last making elusive quests in space possible. The interstellar vessel Odyssey was assembled and, in the year 2095, the expedition of three men and three women embarked on an epic and historic journey exploring where no human had gone before. Ceti 2, their long awaited destination, is a planet remarkably like Earth in many ways. Its evolution nearly parallels that of Earth. Their mission: to widen the horizons of human knowledge about life on another world. But how will they proceed with their purpose of objective exploration when they discover that they have landed on a planet where two distinct and powerful kingdoms are at war? Will they be able to complete their mission and safely return to Earth? Or will they choose sides and take part in a bitter native conflict?
Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase“Star Testament” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
