Books for Sci-Fi Fans

Shameless plug! I write science fiction & fantasy, and The Questrison Saga® is my space opera series. The final Book Four arrives in late Spring 2021, so catch up on the series by getting the whole set now!

The Questrison Saga by J. Dianne Dotson: Heliopause, Ephemeris, and Accretion
The Questrison Saga by J. Dianne Dotson: Heliopause, Ephemeris, and Accretion

Heliopause: The Questrison Saga: Book One

Flashes of light. An unseen menace. Messages from the void. Secrets at the edge of the solar system that threaten to destroy the future.

Mandira Research Station beckons at the heliopause — the brink of interstellar space. After Forster sees flashes outside that no one else can, the captain of an incoming ship is attacked by an invisible foe. Forster and his enigmatic coworker Efron search for a missing daughter who might be the cause of it all. Can the team stop the force from taking over Mandira, and the entire solar system?

Ephemeris: The Questrison Saga: Book Two

Visions of doom. A growing evil. A new hero emerges as old alliances unravel.

Plucked from space and raised in a star-city of androids, impetuous Galla-Deia looks human but is not. Chosen to stop the dual threats of a galactic natural disaster and a malevolent alien entity, she must grow as a commander and gain the trust of both humans and non-humans alike. Unknown to her, the entity draws zealots to its cause, destabilizing interstellar order, and threatening all life in the galaxy.

An epic science fiction and fantasy tale with a rich array of characters and settings, Ephemeris: The Questrison Saga®: Book Two takes place before, during, and after Heliopause: The Questrison Saga®: Book One, and follows origins, convergences, and some familiar faces in The Questrison Saga®.

Accretion: The Questrison Saga: Book Three

Chaos in the galaxy. A gathering of forces, heroic against malevolent. A race to save or ensnare all civilizations from cataclysm and great evil.

In this penultimate installment of The Questrison Saga®, Galla-Deia and her team of humans and aliens must recruit telepaths to end the catastrophic Event. With refugees fleeing disaster and interstellar communications disrupted, trust in the galactic government falters. Destructive Paosh Tohon feeds upon the suffering caused by the Event, ever seeking its own telepathic forces to extend its reach. The heroes called Questri must draw upon latent powers and rely on both new and familiar allies to stop a galactic apocalypse.
