Aquarius Rising

Book 1 - in the Tears of God

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


On an Earth ravaged by global warming, human-dolphin hybrids called Aquarians have built thriving reef colonies among the drowned cities of the coast. Now their world is under siege from an enemy whose invisible weapon leaves no survivors. Only Ocypode the Atavism… half-human and half-Aquarian, marooned in the genetic limbo between species… knows why. Disclosing the reason could be as deadly to Aquarius as the Medusa plague itself. Ocypode and his comrades must face the perils of flight into the open ocean, a friend's betrayal, a killer storm, a lethal kelp forest haunted by mutant monsters, and a fundamental challenge to their most cherished beliefs if they are to have any hope of saving Aquarius from destruction. They must enlist allies of the most unexpected sort from the most unlikely of places. Even then… when confronted by rogue scientists determined to resurrect the land by slaughtering the sea… it may not be enough.

WaterWorld SciFi at Its Best

The setting is the future, where global warming has resulted in the strangest of human adaptations: human-dolpjhin hybrid 'Aquarians' who built reef cities when human cities drowned under the earth's rising waters.

This world faces a new threat from an enemy with an invisible destructive weapon who leaves no survivors and has no apparent reason for his bloodbath. It's up to a half-human to thwart him. And in a world where adaptation has saved some semblence of humanity, is another major shift required to return humanity to its roots? One scientist thinks so...and he'll do anything to make it happen.

Sci-fi and thriller readers can anticipate gripping action set against the backdrop of a world that isn't quite done changing.

Surprisingly few sci-fi novels delve into possible water worlds of the future, in comparison to those that journey into outer space. Readers who enjoy a hefty dose of psychological drama in their sci-fi stories will be the best audience for Aquarius Rising, which creates a believable, absorbing world spiced by the motivations and madnesses of all its characters.
