Humans face two enemies—the implacably powerful Charonians who kidnapped the Earth, and the mysterious Adversary, before whom the Charonians quake in fear. Can an unlikely combination of scientists, corpses, dictators, and professional troublemakers withstand both threats and return the Earth to its proper place in the Solar System?
Volume One of “The Hunted Earth” sequence. Science is toil and hard work—except when it verges on miracle. When Larry O’Shawnessy Chao manages to harness the giant Ring of Charon, orbiting Pluto’s only moon, to control a field of over one million gravities, he feels a touch of the miraculous.
