Blurb


 Benni Dublanc is exemplary, which, in the year 2622 CE, is entirely ordinary. She’s young, she’s pretty, she’s in love, and she attends Academy Aeraea, a center of fashion, thought and modern style built on the pulse of the greatest city ever imagined—Genesia, Mars. Like all Genesians, Benni has never seen a blue sky, she can summon any and all knowledge into view with nothing more than a thought, makes her daily two-hundred kilometer commute in two minutes, and was sculpted into a model citizen beginning from the day she was born. Benni will never know famine, she will never know war, and after a horrific accident on the night of her twenty-second birthday, she will never be human again.

MyThoughts

I found Earthshine to be a surprisingly excellent book. After reading the blurb, I was draw to the book, and seeing the cover was the finishing touch – I had to give it a go. I am glad I did because it is and interesting, exciting and well-written book.
This book has created a world, based on planet nearby, and the world he has woven together is very real. I often sit and wonder what life would be like there, and this book has opened my eyes to the possibilities of what our lives could be like. The detail was excellent, really giving you the full picture and drawing you in to what was happening. I like that even the little details were paid attention to, which really made the writing great and showed me that the author wanted you to be a part of the story.
The characters are written superbly. Each character has their own personality and the physical features were described to well that I could picture the character and really felt as though I knew them. As the story progressed I really bonded with some of the characters, through their actions and decisions, as well as some of the fun/snarky or determined responses they gave in conversation.
The pace was good. I felt that it moved along well, really keeping me interested in the story. I liked that I felt excited about what was going to hempen next, but still had enough detail to really feel a part of what was happening then. I also liked that they were slower moments to really hash out plans and what was happening.
Overall, I enjoyed this read and really look forward to reading more from this author. 
About the Author

Douglas author picChad T. Douglas was born in Wilkesboro, North Carolina in 1989. In 2002, he moved to Florida with his family and in December 2009, as a sophomore attending the University of Florida, Douglas published A Pirate’s Charm, the first novel of the Lore trilogy. One year later, he released his second novel, East and Eight. Around that time, Douglas became a staff writer for the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity at the Florida Museum of Natural History. When he wasn’t working on his novels, Douglas traveled with and wrote for the McGuire Center. Since 2010, he has visited Honduras,

Kenya, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and Mexico as a travel writer.

Douglas’s first novel, A Pirate’s Charm, came to mind when he was a junior in high school. He began writing the Lore series for fun, and originally did not plan on publishing it. When he started college in 2008, he entered as an Architectural Design major, leaving the program in less than two weeks and immediately becoming an English major. One year later, in love with English and writing, Douglas began work on self-publishing the first installment of his historical fiction and fantasy trilogy. His first book signing took place at Books Inc, Gainesville, in February 2010, two months after publication. That same year, he published the second novel in the Lore trilogy, titled East and Eight. The third installment in the Lore trilogy, The Old World, was released in fall 2011. The Lore series has received honors in the 2011 New York Book Festival Book Contest, the 2012 Los Angeles Book Festival Book Contest, and the 78th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition.

Since 2009, Douglas has traveled to and appeared at book festivals in Florida, including the 1st, 2nd and 3rd annual UCF Book Festival in Orlando, the Ft. Myers Book Festival and the Miami International Book Festival. His first novel A Pirate’s Charm was a hit in two festivals in Georgia, including the AJC Decatur Book Festival and the Tybee Island Pirate Festival. In 2010, Douglas was the keynote speaker for the Marion County Library’s CREATE program. There, he signed books and shared personal stories of travel and self-publishing with 150 young writers who all received copies of A Pirate’s Charm courtesy of the library. In 2014, he made his first international appearance as an undiscovered American author at the Paris Book Fair at Salon du Livre. Douglas has since begun work on several new projects. His most recent novel, Earthshine (2012), is a work of science fiction.
