Book 2: Earth Quarantined
WORLD PEACE OR FREEDOM.
WHICH WILL WE CHOOSE?
Earth Arrested follows the story of Kethryn Miller and Neah, twins who didn't know of each other's existence. One lived a celebrity lifestyle, the other lived in a hidden underground city. The existence of twins is forbidden under Truce Law, and Neah's escape from the city brought humanity's crimes to the attention of the aliens who were keeping Earth under tight control, a race known as the Criterion.
In Earth Arrested, the race is on to achieve space travel before the fleet of ships sitting on the edge of our solar system arrives. This fleet contains the Criterion leader, and she is coming to do what the first alien colonists failed to do: destroy all humanity.
Our fragile planet can't take another war. Will humanity surrender to this new alien occupation? Or will we destroy our home in the fight for freedom?
If you like dystopian thrillers that turn conventional ideas about space exploration on their head, stories with twists and turns, and thought-provoking reads, then you'll enjoy D L Richardson's first book in the Earth Quarantined series.
REVIEWS FOR BOOK 1
"Each side hides secrets from each other and the author cleverly reveals each one as the story progresses."
"This is a unique take on the alien invasion trope, with the Criterion advocate, Aries, standing out as the star."
"A sci-fi thriller that manages to turn conventional ideas about space exploration, global conflict and even freedom itself on their head. Fans of Nick Webb may find a new favorite in D.L. Richardson."
"Earth Quarantined is unpredictable and extremely engaging. I was fully captivated by the futuristic world that D L Richardson has creatively built. Readers will find Earth Quarantined to be compelling, thought provoking, and gripping"
“Told from several points of view, humans and aliens, the story moves along quickly as tension builds, leading to an unknown future, different from anything humans have experienced since the arrival of the Criterion. Short chapters keep the pace lively and I found myself reading faster and faster, eager to find out what would happen next. Now, I’m eagerly anticipating Book 2, Earth Arrested.”
"I found this science fiction novel exceptionally engrossing, and can't wait to read it again."
"Author D.L. Richardson takes a really interesting concept here, subverting the ideas of both alien invasion and space travel to make Earth and its inhabitants into the captive species."
