Oneiros is a great space science fiction novel by Woodrow M. Bell which focuses on saving the Earth from repeated intentional asteroid strikes. The book is an edge of your seat read with unexpected plot twists. There is an emotional aspect to the book as Major Asher Gray will be separated from his family as he is sent on a secret mission to determine the cause of the asteroid strikes. -Amazon Review
A planet on the verge of destruction!
A family in turmoil!
A dark secret that could unravel all of reality!
In the near future, Earth is on the verge of destruction. For thirty years, asteroids have pummeled the planet and the Government believes the strikes are intentional. Major Asher Gray has it all; a perfect career, a happy family, and a bright future. But, in the blink of an eye his life is turned upside down when the military informs him that he won’t be promoted and must leave the service unless he is willing to undertake one final, and secret, mission: The government wants Asher to find the source of the asteroids before the planet is destroyed.
The catch is that Asher will have to spend years away from his family at the edge of the Solar System on the Oort cloud Space Station. However, Asher thinks the government isn’t telling him the whole truth about his mission and before he departs his father hints at a dark family secret that could upend all of reality.
The stakes are high: Asher must save Earth, keep his family together, and find out what the government is really after. The only way to accomplish his mission is to rush headlong into deep space and confront the danger that is threatening everything he holds dear. Action, adventure, and romance combine in this rip-roaring tale of time-traveling science fiction where not everything is what it seems, and not everyone is who they claim to be!
Following in the footsteps of Joe Haldeman’s “Forever War”, and Robert Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers”, Oneiros tells the story of one man’s struggle to balance his family, career, and mission to save the Earth – ultimately examining how far one must be willing to go to get back everything they have lost and asks its readers:
Would you be willing to give up your family to save Earth?
About the Author
Woodrow Miles Bells, Aloha and thanks for stopping by my page! I decided to write my first novel, “Oneiros”, after spending years reading amazing science fiction from a plethora of authors. I have been serving in the Air Force for the last seventeen years and I use my real-life experiences to influence the stories I tell. I currently live in Washington D.C. but I consider Hawaii my home. I have a beautiful wife, two amazing daughters, and one incredibly energetic puppy. When I am not writing I enjoy working out, playing chess and reading books! We also love exploring the District and immersing ourselves in the culture that is found on every street corner.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my stories!
