Flashes of light. An unseen menace. Messages from the void. Secrets at the edge of the solar system that threaten to destroy the future.
Mandira Research Station beckons at the heliopause–the brink of interstellar space. After Forster sees flashes outside that no one else can, the captain of an incoming ship is attacked by an invisible foe. Forster and his enigmatic coworker Efron search for a missing daughter who might be the cause of it all. Can the team stop the force from taking over Mandira, and the entire solar system?
“In the first book of
The Questrison Saga
, readers are taken to the far edges of the known galaxy, the so-called Heliopause, to the Mandira Research Station. There, the main character, Forster, sees something that nobody else can see: a series of blinking lights located in the cold, dark space outside the space station. Forster is not hallucinating, though; something is out there. Something dangerous. Its first victim is the captain of an incoming ship, who arrives in critical condition when his ship is attacked by an unseen force. Forster and his coworkers–including the mysterious Efron and elder matriarch Meredith–think that Meredith’s missing daughter is the key to the mystery. What follows is a fast-moving adventure that involves aliens, telepathy and more than a couple of surprises.” —
“Heliopause is a fantastic first novel by newcomer Dianne Dotson. Fast-pace, relatable characters, plenty of plot twists and overall a heck of a lot of fun. Looking forward to the next book.” —
Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling Author of V-WARS and RAGE
“The pacing is perfect and everything glides by at a zip. The main players are introduced early on and the juxtaposition of friendship and the loneliness of the setting is very cleverly done. The way the characters interact is believable and just when you think you know what someone’s intentions are there’s another twist. Not everyone is exactly who they seem! The ending hints at something more and hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for the sequel. Great stuff and highly recommended.” —
