Product Description

Product Description

The first two books of the epic fantasy series that has reached #1 on Amazon!

Described as "Game of Thrones meets Dune," Pearseus is a dark epic fantasy series with a sci-fi twist that takes ancient Greek history and myths and transports them to space. 

It's New Year's Eve, the year 2099, but the guests aboard UES Pearseus won't be counting down seconds. Instead, they'll be counting bodies and survivors after the spaceship's crash landing on another planet.

The good news? The planet is hospitable both in resources and in terms of the natives' attitude towards earthlings.

The bad news? As the years pass, it becomes clear that they might have come on this planet bare of possessions, but they still carry with them the shortcomings of their human nature.

Will that be the sole threat to their future, or is the new land not as innocent as it looks?

The first book describes the arrival of humans to Pearseus, while the second one tells the tale of their descendants, picking up the story 300 years later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pearseus - thoroughly recommend it! 6 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first few pages of this science fiction novel(s) (1 & 2) I realised I was in for a great treat, lost in a world that Nicholas C. Rossis had created.

The descriptions of the characters were not over done; the pace was just right and the scene descriptions were as real as you can get.

Nicholas C. Rossis has the skill and knowledge to write a 'believable' story; one that you can definitely lose yourself in, as I did!

It was gripping & thrilling with a few cautionary words thrown in for the people that read it and also the human race itself!

If you haven't already done so, I would definitely recommend you buy and read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars the unfolding of a world 24 Sept. 2014
By Loren Weaver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Book One: Schism
In the not so distant future, a space ship crash lands on a far away planet. It seems like an accident, or was it? However they got here, the survivors from Pearseus are left to set up a new civilization, if they can work together. And for a while, they do.

But the possession that seems to have brought them here is never so far away. And the whisper in the dark just adds to an already corrupt human nature... right? So when everything crashes, the civilization splits ... and we have the schism that creates Pearseus.

Schism is a shorter book that opens up the world and sets the stage for the drama that is about to unfold on the new planet Pearseus.

Book Two: Rise of the Prince
Three hundred years have passed since that first split that created distinct empires on the new planet Pearseus, not to mention the native First. But the whispers in the dark never did go away.

There's now three main Newcomer factions, plus the First. Not to mention the shadow war between the Orbs and the Whispers. We meet characters from each of these places as they struggle to keep the peace, stay alive, and win wars. Leadership changes, friendships are born, and battles won.

Rise of the Prince isn't a story about a single character or hero, but the story of a world struggling to find peace. The dynamics and alliances are constantly changing, and through it all, we have to decide for ourselves who's in the right and who's not.
