The Stormring (Zero Point Light Book 1)

by Stephen J. Carter

For fans of Hugh Howey and Peter Hamilton!

Being shipwrecked on an alien world can have its ups and downs. For Mick and his cohorts, it’s mostly downs. The planet that their ship’s computer, Maude, picks out for them just happens to be having the mother of all climate events.

No sooner do they make planetfall than they’re driven onto high Neburan seas. There, at their leisure, they get to observe the planet’s unraveling up close and all-too-personal. Enviropsychosis aside, fleeing to the only safe place left onworld can unman even the stoutest heart, especially when it means crossing a miles-wide, world-encircling, lightning-filled wall of storms – the stormring.

“The Stormring” is the first book in the high-concept “Zero Point Light” SF series, chock-full of good vibes, nasty shocks, hair-raising escapes, and edge-of-your-seat suspense.
