Black Earth – How We Got Here

Back to Black Earth

What truths lie in the black void between the stars?

It’s late September 2019 when a young astronomer working at the Haleakala Space Observatory in Maui, Hawaii, accidentally spots a black dot in the night sky that is occulting the stars that lie behind it. The Earth-sized black sphere is in our solar system, is calculated to be closely trailing Earth by only seventy-five million miles…and is on the same ecliptic plane.

Carrick’s father died before he was born. His entire life has been an endless journey to find what was missing; to somehow fill the void in his heart by studying the black void of space. Now it seems that every decision he ever made was leading him to the dark menace closely trailing Earth.

Erik has been alone in The Triad for seventy-five years. Studying his planet’s history has brought him to one inevitable conclusion: mankind’s greatest flaw is its inability to learn from its past mistakes.

What happens next will bridge the planetary gap between Earth and Zenith; life and death; time and space; and will result in a heartbreaking story of love, family, and the true nature of mankind’s past, present, and future.

What truths will be revealed?

After Erik Erickson, the last resident of Black Earth arrived in 2024; he was greeted with a hero’s welcome by nearly all people on Earth. Some, however, questioned if he or planet Zenith were real or simply a lie. A fabrication by the United States Government, thought, many conspiracy theorists.

As Erik toured planet Earth, telling everyone the truths of Zenith and all the riches that it held, some countries thought they could bypass a U.N. Resolution and go it alone to the black menace. Zenith closely trailed Earth by only seventy-five million miles and the race ‘Back to Black Earth’ was on.

What truths found on Zenith could propel a country to be the only super-power on Earth? What would a country do to own advanced propulsion systems and medical cures to every known disease, afflicting humans since the beginning of time? And, what of the passenger manifests from the migration shuttles? Who was on those shuttles? Perhaps some of Earth’s most famous and infamous historical figures.

Animal Farm Revisited? – Wow! As I read this book and the lessons it teaches, I was reminded of reading Animal Farm in high school. The comparisons stop there, though. I find Michel Cook’s writing much more entertaining and well woven. By the time I was halfway through the prologue, I was thinking what a good movie this could be. Now, I’m hoping it will happen. It’s an epic story. Best book I’ve read in years! I HIGHLY recommend you read this amazing book!

NOT a science fiction story – As a child, I enjoyed science fiction and have always been fascinated by astronomy and our universe, but Star Wars and other stories were just not believable to me and I sort of outgrew it. After ordering and reading this Kindle sample, I was hooked! I purchased the Kindle eBook version but now I must have the paperback. This was a very heartwarming story that pulled me back to earth after traveling a small portion of the cosmos. The best part was that all of it is totally believable!!! There was just enough science to make it interesting but, more than that, more heart than I ever expected from this book. We all wonder, but it’s so comforting to know that we can take bits and pieces of life and imagine our own afterlife. This story definitely gave me ideas, thoughts, questions and most importantly, hope. The author is a friend of the family that has certainly impressed me with his first novel. Thank you, Michael. What a treat!!
