By 2023, the super powers in our world, headed by narcissistic leaders, have coalesced most of the global power into three geopolitical zones, and this division of power and mutual opposition, along with the continuing devastation of Earth’s ecological balance, is heading the planet for an inevitable fate. A group of visionaries, scientists and engineers, seeing the obvious disaster looming ahead, launches the most challenging mission ever undertaken by humanity – to reach and colonize a new world in the hopes of giving mankind a unified vision, a new dream to hold onto and not self-destruction.
As Earth edges toward the ultimate nuclear showdown, Jim Tale and his Ai companion, CASS, streak toward Earth II, light years away. Tale, a rebellious-minded man and misfit, encounters and goes up against unbelievable, seemingly impossible odds, as he fights to make the dream a reality for all humanity.
He is not only driven by his mission, but by haunting and nightly visitations of the one woman he loved and lost, and an obsession to find the answers that explain existence and the Universe. EARTH ESCAPE is both a dystopian eye-opener about the path of our world if not altered, and a philosophical sci-fi thriller that will stretch your mind.

Book Review of EARTH ESCAPE by author Victoria Ichizli-Bartels
“Gripping, surprising, and a very thoughtful story. A very memorable read.
It is obvious that the author had put all of him into this story. Although the story is fictional, it is extremely close to the current state of events and especially the nature of the conflicts around the world. We see every day how easy it is to be drawn into a narrow-minded thinking. We all want to define everything concretely and once and for all. The ever-surprising life events shake all those beliefs and definitions profoundly and this is very scary. Slipping under the duvet of judging others or other-minded people can be so comfortable. We’ve all been there and probably be drawn into such traps again and again. The clue is to remain open-minded and compassionate, both to ourselves and to others.
And exactly this was the main message I read again and again both between the lines and directly inside “Earth Escape”.
But even the best message would be nothing without strong writing and I definitely can confirm this for this book. The thorough research about the theories of where we all come originally from are cleverly woven together and with author’s imagination, and this makes the story sound very believable. What I also liked very much was the clearly visible intention behind and careful forming of every scene and every element in the book.
I highly recommend reading this book. You might find yourself chuckling at Jim Tale’s language and spicy dialogues and scenes, but you might also discover yourself looking at the world differently during and after reading this story. You might discover that you want to make a positive change in the world.”
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.
