A dead star is headed for Earth...The shift in Earth's orbit will unleash a new ice age...And this summer will be our last.
The news breaks - Logan Willis's life is falling apart: he lost his job and found out that his wife is cheating on him all in the same day. Thinking that his world has ended, Logan checks into a hotel and turns on the TV to see that he's not far wrong - radio telescopes have detected mysterious signals coming from inside our solar system, and the source is moving toward us at over 500 miles per second. The media concludes that these signals must be of an alien origin. Still reeling from the news, Logan gets a phone call from his brother-in-law. Richard is talking crazy about the end of the world again, but this time he doesn't sound so crazy.
A deadly conspiracy unravels - Meanwhile, Richard, who is an astronomer working with the James Webb Space Telescope, is at the White House briefing the president to announce what he and the government have known for almost a decade: aliens are not invading, a frozen ball of gas is. The so-called rogue star is predicted to make a near pass with Earth, disrupting our orbit and unleashing an ice age, the likes of which we haven't seen for millions of years.
We're putting a colony on Mars - Government insider and billionaire Akron Massey has received a steady flow of funding over the past decade for his company, Starcast, to put a colony on Mars. Over the same period he's been using his personal fortune to create a colony closer to home where he plans to ride out the coming storm along with a thousand of the smartest people on the planet. Humanity will need seeds to plant in the ashes after the chaos clears.
And wars ignite - When the true nature of the threat becomes known, the nations of Earth prepare to fight over all the warmest parts of the planet. But as war fleets set sail and armies begin marching south, a stunning discovery is made that will change a lot more than just the weather....

While Logan decides to drink it off, the President of the US tells the country that a rogue star is headed our way in the next year. He rushes home to be with his family, while resentment still resides. Unbeknownst to he and his wife, her brother Richard was the man who discovered the rogue star and had been trying to convince his sister that the end of the world was upon us and that they could live with him in his compound in Texas.
They find their way to Texas and it wouldn’t be a family end of the world trip without the teenage hormones of Kate and Logan’s oldest, Alex almost costing them their shelter and their lives.
They’re safe for a moment until Uncle Richard discovers that the rogue star is accompanied by intelligent life that soon occupies Earth and forces humanity to uproot itself into the harsh conditions of the “new” Earth.
The invaders are human like in appearance but more robot than anything. They push humanity on a cattle ride and while all may seem chaotic, the US government does not collapse but has plans along with a billionaire to leave on one of 6 rockets to March. Richard has a connection to get on one these rockets but getting passed the Invaders, lawless humanity and the US Military brings on a huge challenge but Logan, Kate, their kids and Alex’s new girlfriends family are able to get surprising help from an unexpected source.
You will not want to put this one down!
This excellent novel keeps up a quick pace and presents a credible "what would happen if" for an alien invasion. People react with fear and ignorance. The people preparing for the end of the world ("Prepers") find that their preparations are flawed. Children are not good at locking security gates. People cannot fathom that an adversary far out classes them with superior technology and weapons.
We get a front seat while trying to escape -- the guy next to you in the airplane reads your email giving away the location of the safe house. Also while driving to the designated safe area when gas stations are closed. Everyone else is on the save road trying to save themselves and their families just like you might. Every one has guns and civilization breaks down.
A rich technology guy, Akron Massey, has a part in this novel as he is trying to save his family and escape to Mars with less than 1000 people to start a new existence.
Allowing for a link between Logan and the scientist who discovers the approaching alien vessel, the novel (the first of a Rogue Star series) places us near the people and aliens who will make for a possible future of mankind. An armored Robot, one-zero, is able to assist people to escape often in humorous ways.
The gripping tail is well constructed. The hormonal urge of a young man, Alex (Logan's son) to be with a young woman of the same age is important to the plot and provides a reason to get in line for the next book in the series, "Rogue Star: New Worlds".
Great, quick read with well developed characters and a well written storyline! At first I thought the detailed descriptions of people and places was a bit much, until I realized that I had incredibly colorful mental pictures of so many things - from injuries to traffic jams to combat robots.
Our hero wasn't perfect, but he wasn't an idiot either. An everyday man with not much to lose, but enough to fight to protect.
The level of violence was low, no unnecessary swearing or crude behavior. Typos were minimal.
Looking forward to reading more about Haven in the next book!
Thank you, I have enjoyed many of your books. Keep up the great work!
The book is basically centered a round one family who are trying to outrun the massive snow & ice storms predicted. The scientists have predicted another ice age for the northern States of the U S .
They are seeking a special place that Kate's brother has admitted will keep then safe. Can they find it? Will they be accepted?
I enjoy this writer's creativity...can't wait for the next book!😁
