The Dot, Blurb

My next novel, The Dot, will be released on February 14, 2023. Below is the Blurb. Final editing steps are underway and I should have the book cover art finished by January 10, 2023. Here is the book blurb.

Two sons on two planets discover themselves and their fathers’ legacies while confronting a planetary existential crisis of famine, radiation poisoning, and the collapse of society.

Eight generations after the Cyborgs sought to eradicate anger with their DNA-altering serum, the planet Ziran and its colony face extinction. The inhabitants are dying, their bodies and life-sustaining crops stricken by radiation poisoning. In a desperate grasp for survival, they turn to an ancient ritual, creating a child who is more god than human. 

The future of the settlement now lies in the hands of Zosimos, who matures at an inhuman rate and displays exceptional mental abilities. But when he’s exposed to a plant that reverses the side effects of the Cyborg’s serum, Zosimos experiences anger for the first time and realizes his power far exceeds those around him. Zosimos succumbs to a murderous rage that leads him to enforce a tyrannical rule upon the people of Ziran. 

The planet’s salvation resides in the hands of a girl named Vallena, and a sage, Kelv, who has sworn himself to a violence-free existence. Kelv’s DNA may hold the key to curing the radiation poisoning, and with Vallena’s discovery of a cure for Zosimos’s rage comes a seed of hope. Will Kelv’s lessons, Zosimos’s new morality, and the secret hidden by Zosimos’s father be enough to alter the dark forecast for Ziran’s people? Or will a force they never bargained for mean the end of everything they created on their peaceful planet?
