One of my top reads of last year was Stormhaven Rising and this is the seuel to that story That first book told the tale of the discovery of an asteroid headed on a collision course for Earth but that was a distant threat throughout the story with the real focus being how different factions mobilised to try to deal with that menace More particularly there were the political machinations that took place as different groups vied to take the primary role in tackling something that could prove catastrophic for Earth This book picks up where that left off with two major plans in progress to try to deal with the incoming rock Prometheus is a beam weapon designed to push the asteroid onto a new course that would miss Earth but that beam needs to be sustained over many days to be a success Meanwhile a Chinese plan The Dragon is to launch a massive warhead that would shatter the rock Both projects are operated from bases on the Moon and the teams behind them are not on friendly sidesPolitical manoeuvres on the surface see nations trying to settle old scores before the asteroid can hit while a back up plan of scrambling people to colonies on the moon in case the worst happens faces hazards of its own with too many people and not enough room As below so above and ensuring safety on the Moon for both people and the projects that could ensure Earth s survival becomes a challenge This book really takes up the gauntlet cast down by the opening book in the series and runs with it it s an absolute thrill ride full of hard decisions and harder conseuences More than a few times I cursed at the book as I turned pages filled with moments that bit deep Then against those there are moments where you punch the air such as when the Flight Infantry deploys in a skirmish on the Moon tumbling out of the back of the vehicle carrying them at hundreds of miles an hour It s the kind of kickass moment that reminds me of the Orion Ship in Niven and Pournelle s Footfall a spaceship propelled by dropping nuclear bombs underneath it Science kicking ass The latter half of the book sees the asteroid getting ever closer will humanity overcome its divisions to succeed in preventing its impactThat I won t spoil but I will say you ve got a great read ahead of you as you find out

In my review of Stormhaven Rising the first volume of the Atlas and the Winds series I briefly noted comparisons between that novel and the first sci fi classic about an asteroid destroying the earth the 1933 When Worlds CollideI have far fewer comparisons between the first book s seuel After When Worlds Collide and Prometheus and The Dragon The 1934 seuel was pure fantasy with amazing remains of a vanished alien civilization left behind on another planet for the human survivors to inhabit True the various bands of humans from different countries brought with them dangerous ideological conflicts from their now dead home planet The same is true of Prometheus although on a far complex scaleFrom the beginning of Prometheus the Chinese and Americans battle each other both on the moon and on earth as each think they have the real hope of throwing the coming asteroid off course Each due to both arrogance and technological issues cancel out each other s efforts At the same time other conflicts flare up on earth and between various lunar colonies On earth an alliance between the Russians and Arab states seek to destroy Israel but this union breaks down and threatens the stability of the RussianArab moon colony An insane American evangelist enflames thousands of followers to destroy all spacecraft taking potential survivors to the moon as he thinks unbelievers should simply accept the will of God and die in the coming apocalypse The Americans don t like the idea of the Stormhaven colony having an eual voice in the future as they feel the Stormhaven base doesn t have legitimate international standing In short in the precious time left before the asteroid hit humanity is its own worst enemy Author Eric Michael Craig does an excellent job providing characters who represent the multiple perspectives and widely differing agendas of a number of nations scientists political and military leaders as well as religious groups He also provides a large number of interpersonal relationships of those desperate to survive on the moon those who try to create safe havens on earth or those spreading terrestrial and lunar havoc based on self defeating motives As with volume one Craig is especially good with his explanations of scientific advances vivid settings and sadly too many believable human tensions Without giving anything away the concluding chapters include so much emotional punch that readers may well be breathless by the time they read the bonus chapter from the next book Shadows in the Sun Certainly it s best to read Stormhaven Rising before diving into Prometheus If you re like me you ll want to go beyond these two novels read book three and look forward to the rest of the series coming out in 2017 To me Eric Michael Craig undeniably deserves to be lauded as an important new voice in science fictionThis review first appeared at BookPleasurescom on Jan 23 2016 googl3dhs3C

Hello it s Amp and today I will be reviewing Prometheus and the Dragon by Eric Michael Craig This is seemingly only the second part of the multi book series called Atlas and the Winds I haven t read the first book but going off of what I have already read I don t think I need to as a lot of things can be picked up via context clues and deductive thinking It s a hard science fiction with a bit of thriller religion politics and sociologicalpsychological themes all mixed togetherA meteoroid dubbed Antu is on it s way towards earth large enough to send it back to the dark ages and deadly enough to diminish all hope of survival Well all hope except for the final frontier space In anticipation of the meteoroid countries from all over the world begin to build colonies on the moon however it seems that the Chinese and American bases are the most advanced colonies and are in an arms race to see who can get rid of Antu first When trouble stirs back on planet earth full on spacial warfare breaks out on on the moon and a destructive space rock counting down the days until impact will either colony prove victorious Or will their competitiveness be their downfall and all their actions in vainI give this book a 45 because it kept me thoroughly entertained even though I was coming in at the middle of the series It s one less star than perfect because I feel as though the author could have been descriptive Many times I d lose track of what character was who or what they looked like or why they even mattered The setting would blur uite a bit especially with the seemingly constant dynamic perspectives making it difficult to imagine the area around the characters However while character development and tons of intriguing dialogue make up for this drawback it doesn t completely cover the gap
