New Sci Fi Novel, Shattered Sky by David Colby

Thinking Ink Press is happy to announce that the science fiction novel Shattered Sky by David Colby is now available. The second book in the Lunar Cycle trilogy, Shattered Sky is the sequel to Debris Dreams.

In Debris Dreams, lunar separatists attack the space elevator above the Earth, forcing offworlder Drusilla Zhao into wartime military service.

In Shattered Sky, Dru is honored as a hero and joins her girlfriend Sara on Earth. As Dru begins her new life, she struggles to adapt to a different culture while suffering from PTSD. When Sara’s home is threatened, and the military demand that Dru return to service, she must fight to defend the Alliance while battling enemies inside her own head.

Shattered Sky, Lunar Cycle Book 2, Advance Review Copies Available

The year: 2068

The place: The war-torn, ecologically devastated Earth.

The objective: Survive.

Sixteen-year-old  Drusilla  Zhao  has  done  the  impossible  and  escaped  the  meat  grinder  of  space  warfare  alive.  But Earth is far more dangerous than  she imagined, and now  she  and  her  only  remaining  comrade,  Jillian,  are  about  to  be  rotated  right  back  into  the  firing  line  and  away  from  Dru’s  love,  Sarah.

Shattered Sky by David Colby continues the Lunar Cycle sci-fi trilogy that began with Debris Dreams. Publishers Weekly says Debris Dreams is “appealingly reminiscent of an updated Heinlein juvenile, it’s a story of wartime bravery, principles and self-sacrifice.”
