With the world racing to claim the water rights at the Moon’s south pole, a Chinese rover mysteriously disappears in the same area, on the eve of an historic joint US/ Canada Moon launch. When the next generation space ship, Endurance, encounters mechanical problems, the mission is threatened. With no other solution, Orion and his friends attempt a secret rescue mission, using his alien father’s technology. Their adventure uncovers NASA’s true mission; the construction of a covert moon base which leads to the discovery of an ancient object deep within a crater.
On a journey that begins with a bar fight in New Orleans with near death consequences, a gunfight in Afghanistan and finally a confrontational flight to AREA 51, Orion and his team must face espionage and sabotage as they rush to save the astronauts, without jeopardizing their own lives.
With fast-paced action, Forrest and his unique style draws on his characters from Orion Surfacing and continues their adventure, taking readers around the world and to the moon. Forrest skillfully weaves a plot with multiple twists and turns equal to the master storytellers of our time.
