Complete Atopia Chronicles, all six books for limited time $2.99

The Weather Wars have left Commander Rick Strong beaten but not broken, and an invitation to head the defense forces on the new Atopian colony is an opportunity to start over again and renew his relationship with his estranged wife. As the world comes back into focus for the Commander, it seems the perfect time to start a family of his own, but on Atopia, starting a family isn't what it used to be, and time suddenly seems to be running out as dangerous forces threaten to consume Atopia itself.

The Atopia Chronicles are an exploration of the meaning of love, life and the pursuit of happiness in a world teetering on the brink of eco-Armageddon. What could be worse than letting billions die? In the future, be careful what you wish for.
