From Terra to Harmonia
Out of the Sun
The year is 2140, and Expedition 1 has safely left Earth for its projected forty-year-long mission to the planet Harmonia, in hopes of settling a colony there. Humans have depleted almost all of Earth’s resources and now are on the verge of self-destruction. Although attempts have been made to restore the Earth’s ecological balance, the fate of the entire human race rests in the hands of this mission.
Carrying 1000 humans in a quasi-frozen state and piloted by Captain Pierre De Grandpré and his crew, Expedition 1 is the largest and most technologically advanced spaceship of its kind. But just because it is the most capable of completing its task doesn’t mean there aren’t others who secretly want to get to Harmonia first and claim the best spot for themselves—others willing to do whatever it takes to stop Expedition 1.
Soon, Expedition 1’s crew find themselves trying to defend against a vicious, devious enemy attempting to destroy them. Wondering how the enemy keeps disrupting their mission so easily, crew members begin to lose trust in one another. Is there a spy among them? If so, who? As Captain De Grandpré does everything he can to bring together the highly skilled individuals forming his crew, his vision grows ever clearer: arrive at Harmonia first before it falls into the wrong hands . . .
Full of spellbinding, edge-of-your-seat moments, From Terra to Harmonia: Out of the Sun is the first book in the From Terra to Harmonia trilogy.
After having spent 33 years in the Canadian Armed Forces, Mario Morin now feels the need to continue serving in a different way: by writing entertaining and inspiring stories ingrained with values and principles of love, collaboration, and justice. He has a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s in administration, which influence the characters and politics of his fiction.
When not writing, Morin enjoys travelling, practicing martial arts, reading about self-development, and spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. He lives in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec, with his wife, Lise.
