Noah Zarc is a highly imaginative science fiction adventure filled with amazing gadgets, incredible time travel, and of course an evil villain set on destroying it all.
Noah is living the life most 12-year-old kids dream about and his life aboard a spaceship couldn't be better. Earth is in trouble and Noah and his family are on a mission to save the creatures by bringing them to the sanctuary they have created in outer space. Things seem to be going as planned, until Noah's mom and dad fail to return from one of their time travel trips. Can Noah rescue his parents and defeat the evil mastermind with a sinister plan? You can bet he's going to try!
I love how the story is a modern day science fiction loosely based on the story of Noah's Ark. Those familiar with the bible story will pick up on the subtle similarities. Author, D. Robert Pease is genuinely gifted storyteller. His creativity easily draws readers into the story and the fast paced action captivates them.
I definitely recommend picking up a copy of Noah Zarc and adding it to your summer reading list. You will not be disappointed.

Book 1: "If I had read this book at age 10, I think it would have made me love SF just as much as reading Asimov did. If you like the non-stop action and humor of Rick Riordan's Olympians books, I think you'll also like Noah Zarc." ~ Sher A. Hart, book blogger and author

About the Author: D. Robert Pease
D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn't been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer's Sirens. It's not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life.
