Luna by Garon Whited @SDSXXTours @GaronWhited

by Garon Whited
Genre: SciFi, Fantasy, Dystopian

"It's the end of the world, and I have the best seat in the house." 
Armageddon has arrived. It's not as bad as we thought. 

The world is in trouble.
Correction. The world is ending and soon. The last days are coming and humanity is unable to stop it. Naturally, humanity has a backup plan.

Welcome to the Moon, where the air is thin, life is hard, and the Earth isn't fit to live on.
Now, how can we make things better?

Luna is Garon Whited's science fiction and fantasy story of one man surviving the end of the world despite it's many obvious obstacles and his attempt to save some of humanity. 

From the very first line, "Luna" grabs the reader. Where most books start with a world in trouble and ride the story on in to the Last Days, "Luna" starts with the ultimate end of the world and flies forward into the future.

The end of the world has never been quite so entertaining. Crushing despair, soaring hope, and the stubborn determination of humanity all come together in a story told by a man in the middle of it all.

Welcome to the Moon, the new home of humanity.


What an exciting read!  I loved the premise about forming a survival colony when the Earth is near extinction.  I read the book in just a few sessions because it was so entertaining I just could not stay away for long.  The characters just came alive in the book though I did think Max came off a little stuffy on occasion.  Still, he was charming and funny most often;  I enjoyed his self-deprecating humor. 

The author did a fabulous job sketching in the technology so I was able for form clear mental images of the settings without overwhelming me with tedious detail.  Mostly the story centered around the characters and how they managed to pull together during the toughest times and triumph over extreme adversity.  I hope there will be a sequel.

Garon Whited was supposedly born in either 1969 or 1970; the original birth certificate is suspiciously unavailable and other records do not agree. 

After spending some years in college playing with computers, he finally joined a radical group of jellyfish herding nomads. Having fought zombie dolphins, quasi-corporeal spirits, and brain-sucking mole rats, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His subsequent attempts at professional salsa repairman and ley line salesman met with similar success. He claims to live in Texarkana, on Earth, but people have been known to disagree.
