Earth Escape, a sci-fi, geopolitical and philosophical thriller takes the reader from our contemporary times and depicts a near and not too distant future, one where a Trumpian dystopia pushes the world to the edge of ultimate disaster. In a desperate attempt to avoid the inevitable implosion on Earth, where natural resources are rapidly depleting, where environmental destruction is reaching critical-mass, and where the division of global power into three largely opposing geopolitical camps is nearing nuclear war, a small handful of prudent scientists and engineers, backed by NASA, devise the technology necessary to build and launch the largest intergalactic spaceship, the Evolution, and sends it on a mission to the nearest exo-planet, EARTH II, in the hopes that it can become a new home to man, and moreover, change the paradigm on Earth from that of war and self-suicide, to colonizing a whole new world.
Jim Tale, the Captain of the Evolution, wakes up 27 years into his voyage, on the cusp of arriving at Earth II and finds himself facing things he would never have imagined. His closest ally and companion, CASS, the most advanced Ai sentience ever developed, helps Jim navigate the stars as they encounter aliens, raptors and new worlds. Jim Tale is a man who is haunted by his past and who is also driven by an obsession to find the answers to existence. He is a misfit and and a rebel, but his very recalcitrance becomes his greatest strength as they trek to the edge of the Universe while the clock ticks away on Earth and as inevitable and ultimate war breaks out, one which could be the darkest and final hours for all humanity.
