EARTH QUARANTINED

Book 1: Earth Quarantined

WORLD PEACE CAME WITH RULES.

WE'VE JUST BROKEN THEM.

In the year 2055, millions of humans were wiped out by a deadly virus known as EMB-II, a bioweapon strain of Ebola that could not be stopped. The need to get off the planet and into space was never stronger. Before the ships could be launched, First Contact was made. A dozen spaceships arrived, carrying twelve Criterion Advocates – peacekeepers of the universe – and thousands of Criterion soldiers, aides, workers, and engineers. To stop the virus from getting into space, Earth was placed under quarantine and work begun to save the planet and humanity. Through tough control measures, world peace was achieved. 

The year is now 2355. The virus is gone. Humanity is eager to get into space. Yet the Earth is still under quarantine. The Criterion are lying to us. What they don’t know is that we’re lying to them.

Kethryn Miller is an award-winning actress, but nothing will prepare her for the role she’ll take on when a strange woman who shouldn’t be alive turns up in the city, threatening to expose the lies that have kept peace on Earth for 200 years. 

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

"Each side hides secrets from each other and the author cleverly reveals each one as the story progresses."

Netgalley reviewer

"This is a unique take on the alien invasion trope, with the Criterion advocate, Aries, standing out as the star."

Aussie Speculative Fiction

"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."

Best Thrillers

Reviews

"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"

Chick-Lit Cafe

“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.”
