“Men’s hearts shall fail from fear…for the planets of the heavens shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26).
When rookie astronomer Irina Kirilenko discovers a planet-size comet in the Kuiper Belt on a collision course for Mars, she first faces stonewalling from the Minor Planet Center, then coercion and stricture from NASA. They press her to embrace an ingenious reinterpretation of her discovery and ban her from talking about it. It slowly dawns on her that the government is fostering a massive conspiracy to keep the public oblivious to the truth—Earth is facing an existential threat. Unwilling to be silenced, she recruits fellow astronomer Ariele Serrafe to evaluate her discovery, placing both in the crosshairs of government agents.
Set in a subtly dystopian, near future America, The Rogue, the first volume of the Planets Shaken series, weaves the threads of biblical prophecy, catastrophism in ancient history, government conspiracy, and electric universe theory into a thought-provoking, tensely plotted thriller—one that asks us to reconsider the nature of the universe and the destiny of the world.

This series is written from a Christian perspective and may not suit everyone's taste buds. It contains no profanity or sensuality. There are explicit references to the Bible and biblical ideas. Many of the characters exhibit Christian, conservative, or independent perspectives.

The Rogue

Excellent book! Will there be a sequel?

The Rogue

Very interesting and thought provoking. Hard to put down. One can fine the reality of the fiction in the book of Revelation. Greatly anticipating the sequel.
