"Jason Gurley will be a household name one day." – Hugh Howey
Book 1 of The Movement Trilogy
Earth is on the brink of ruin. Great storms destroy cities. Rising seas reshape the continents. Afraid for its survival, mankind constructs a fleet of space stations in orbit, and steps off-world.
Among the humans fighting for their future are Micah Sparrow, a widower who uncovers a plot to return mankind to the dark ages; Tasneem Kyoh, who undergoes life-extension treatments and begins the search for humanity's next home; and David Dewbury, a prodigy who believes he knows where that home might be.
But in space, the rules aren't the only things that have changed. Man himself has changed, and with the Earth in tatters behind him, man turns his attention to the one thing left to destroy: himself.
The Settlers is the explosive first book in Jason Gurley's Movement Trilogy, the epic story of man's small step into space, and the great leaps humanity must make to save its own future.
A good read to the ⭐️
I just finished this book and I am on to number 2,
I don’t know what it is about me ,but I enjoy the thoughts of leaving this planet and voyaging in to space ::::
Or at least living there !✨
I great read , Jason Gurley does it again !
First off this is an amazing book! It has a great story that leaves you wanting more. However, this is one of the problems of the book also, it has a very short attention span. The book is just over 200 pages but spans over a hundred years and has seven(or so) different sets of characters at different time periods throughout this period. While all of these stories are well written it seems as though they could have been expanded on and woven into one another a little more seamlessly. The main character Tasneem and her accomplice and their plan of the future of humanity could have been a book in and of itself!
I feel like this is an amazing book that could be quadrupled in length in the future without losing any of the charm of what has already been accomplished.
Overall a great book that feels like more a collection of short stories in the same universe than a book. This ultimately reminds me of a less refined style like Isaac Asimov's Foundation and with some additions to the main plot characters could be just as long lasting!
Well worth reading! I finished it way too fast!
