Moonwar

ebook

A lunar colony faces off with corrupt Earth forces intent on destroying it, from the New York Times–bestselling author of Moonrise.

This fast-paced, high-tech adventure is the continuation of the story of Douglas Stavenger, the Kennedy-esque scion of Moonbase's founding dynasty.

While Moonbase has been flourishing under Stavenger's management, it's existence, and even Stavenger's life, both depend on nanotechnology that has been outlawed on Earth in response to a wave of suspicion, fear, and violence. Soon, United Nations peacekeepers arrive on the moon to enforce the anti-nanotech laws, bringing with them intrepid news reporter Edith Elgin, who soon falls for Doug. Meanwhile, Doug's mother has chosen to return to Earth, but upon arrival she is held hostage by the secretary general of the UN who wants Doug to surrender his forces—and to be killed.

Slick politicians, beautiful television anchors, and calculating corporate barons provide complex and engaging scenery: imagine Washington in the space age, with nonstop action and cool technology.

"Ranks up there with Mars as one of Bova's very best." —St. Petersburg Times
