 In the year 2154, sixteen year old Tycho McGrath is an advanced genetics student at the prestigious John Brooke Academy in Tampa. Life seems fairly dull, until he accidentally discovers that in less than a week, a recently designed bacterium known as the Orion Strain will almost certainly wipe out every human being on earth.

Tycho and his friends quickly form a desperate plan to steal an experimental spacecraft and flee to the partially-terraformed Moon, hoping to ride out the plague until it's safe to come home.

But the survivors of Earth soon discover that the Moon has its own dangers. Horrific storms, radiation poisoning, and mutant insects all lie in wait, and worst of all, they must soon face the betrayal of one of their own.

Will Tycho and the others find their way back to Earth, or will they be trapped forever on the dying Moon?


Tuesday, January 22, 2154

I was at school the day the world fell apart, in Dr. Weiss’s advanced genetics class, as a matter of fact.

Back in those days I’d never heard of the Orion Strain, the Moon was nothing but a light in the sky, and the worst problem I ever had to deal with was forgetting to turn in my chemistry homework. Mrs. McClendon used to be a real beast about late assignments.

I know the world can never go back to the way it was before, but sometimes I can’t help wishing, you know.

I remember I was supposed to be comparing two different strains of mouse DNA that afternoon; deadly dull stuff, to be honest. So maybe it was just boredom that led me to set aside my genetics project and hack my way into the mainframe of the World Health Organization instead. Molecular genetics happens to be my special field of study, and that’s one of the best places to visit if you like such things.

It was nothing but a whim; I wasn’t looking for anything in particular. But we have a saying in science, about how the most interesting discoveries are almost always the accidental ones. It’s called serendipity, and it ended up saving my life that day.

Professional Reviews

Great SyFy Story!
My son read this book over the summer and loved it! This is what he says about the book: "Tycho is about a boy who winds up on the moon because of a deadly virus on earth. While there, he has many adventures. My favorite thing about this book was that the characters could jump off huge cliffs without getting hurt. I also liked the huge vampire roaches! This is a must read for anyone who likes Syfy. I have other books by the author on Kindle and can't wait to start them."
