From Michael Siemsen, creator of the #1 Sci-Fi Bestseller, The Dig, and the award winning (a demon’s story) series, EXIGENCY transports the author’s singular, visionary approach to world-building to its next pivotal juncture.
Nine brilliant scientists travel light years on a one-way trip to an Earth-like planet. Their mission is to study from orbit the two species of intelligent lifeforms on the surface. The first: an isolated people embarking on civilization and building their world’s first city. The second: a brutal race of massive predators, spread thick and still growing across the dominant landmass – destined to breed and eat their way to extinction within a few centuries.
After eight years of observation, disaster strikes the orbiting station and only two crewmembers eject successfully. Drifting down through a dark alien sky, the pair realizes their escape pod launched not toward the safety of the city, but to the other side of the planet, touching down deep within a land no human could possibly survive.
About the Author
After serving in the U.S. Army as a tracked vehicle operator, he returned to civilian life and began writing short stories and screenplays, and directing short films and music videos.
Moving to Northern California in the late ’90’s, Michael met his future wife, Ana. The two now live near the San Joaquin River Delta, with their three equally-adventurous children and Brody, the ever-gaping Lab.
Michael’s 4th novel, EXIGENCY, will be released September 16, 2014, and he is currently at work wrapping up the third book in the Matt Turner series, RETURN. It should be released in late 2014, depending upon Brody’s seemingly endless need to urinate or engage in exercise.
