Everything a great sci-fi novel should be: visionary, immersive, and thematically profound.  - Kirkus Reviews

Ten years after The Mothership crashed on Earth, an alien probe from 65,000 light years away splashes down in the Pacific, seeking to solve a cosmic riddle. 

A trawler inexplicably vanishes at sea and a body washes up on a deserted beach with a single extra-terrestrial clue that reaches all the way to Area 51. 

Colonel Beckman and two of his team are dispatched to unravel the mystery. They board an oceanographic vessel which carries them to one of the most remote places on Earth, where an elusive alien presence is preparing to challenge the dominance of the human race. 

It is there, in the baking tropical heat of The Mothersea, they learn a terrible truth – that one world cannot have two masters.

Customer Reviews


For a long and fruitless time, I’ve searched for a really great invasion-oriented novel. I found it in Stephen Renneberg’s THE MOTHERSEA.

Building off of an earlier novel (which I will have to read next) he has created a cast of both vivid alien characters and human characters. As the tension and action build, and periodically explode, we are also treated to a skillfully written and researched novel that unfolds in the classic was of Well, Clarke and Bradbury.

The ending is very satisfying and in the most skillful of ways, leaves the reader on edge with the possibility of more to come. Just a wonderful book.
