In the year 2051, a rare and fatal event - the Blast - released a lethal dose of radiation that almost wiped out the entire population of Americans on the moon. The Blast killed almost all the adults, leaving behind just three scientists and one other adult to care for dozens of orphaned children. Twelve years later, those that survived the Blast have had no contact with Earth, leaving them to fend for themselves in very trying conditions. The moon base is strictly divided into two camps; the managers (five in total) and the nexgens (the kids orphaned by the Blast and now the workforce of the base). The managers make the rules and the nexgens follow without question - all holding onto the ever-dimming hope that one day help from Earth will arrive. When some unexpected guests arrive at the base, the ensuing chaos upsets the delicate status quo as lines of authority are crossed, and management turns on each other as fifty-year-old grudges are revived.
Moonstroke by Blaine Readler is a one of a kind sci-fi read that combines a memorable setting and a plot that rivals some of the best stories in the genre. The contrasting concept of a setting that is so ahead of time and yet at the same time so backward created a perfect backdrop against which to create such a unique sci-fi adventure. Blaine Readler flawlessly crafted a story that portrays amazing sci-fi while at the same time capturing the humanity at the heart of it all, making it more relatable and an even more compelling read. If you love stories that capture both sci-fi and humanity in equal measures, you will definitely enjoy Moonstroke.
