Destiny: Quest For A New World is a work of science fiction with literary style writing penned by author Donald M. Edwards. This novel opens a new series with the premise that Earth requires somewhere new for its inhabitants to live after decades of destruction, depletion of natural resources and all-out war has all but destroyed the planet. As the human race dreams of colonization beyond the solar system, one intrepid team sets out to do it. Grant Wickham wants nothing more than to secure the future of the human race, and beside him, he has a team with some of the most intelligent humans on Earth, and a supercomputer named Albert to guide the way. What results is a truly epic and dramatic journey.
Author Donald M. Edwards paints an intrepid portrait of the journey into the unknown, mingling elements of classic space opera with survivalist post-apocalyptic tropes and the literary stylings of the old masters of science fiction. The combination pays off well, delivering a multi-layered tale that has some romantic plotlines, character clashes and dangerous moments that will have readers flipping their pages faster and faster. What results is a novel that feels complete and builds its premise well, especially with a view to setting up further episodes in the series. Overall, I would highly recommend Destiny: Quest For A New World for readers who are fans of classic science fiction, but also appreciate a character-driven story with high-quality writing.
