Army engineer Eduardo Torres is caught up in the world's raging oil wars when he stumbles onto the plans for a quantum-energy battery. This remarkable device could slow civilization's inevitable descent into environmental disaster, but Torres has other plans. Forming a private army, he uses the device to revive an abandoned space colonization effort in an ambitious campaign to lead humanity to a new life in a distant solar system.

The massive endeavor faces many challenges before the fleet finally embarks for the Holzstein System many light-years away. But even as the feuding colonists struggle to carve out homes on alien worlds, they discover that they have not left their old conflicts and inner demons behind.

Nor are they alone on this new frontier. Awaiting them are inhuman beings who strike without warning or explanation--and who may spell the end of humanity's last hope.

Epic in scope, yet filled with searing human drama and emotion, A Grey Moon Over China is a monumental science fiction saga by an amazing new talent. Its original publication by Black Heron Press was named one of the "Best Books of 2006" by Kirkus Reviews .

I've checked this book out 3 times owing to the synopsis. The IDEA is compelling, the execution is a disappointment. Despite repeated attempts to finish this book I simply cannot do it. While the prose is good, the best way to describe the writing itself, the storyline, is jerky. I kept going back because I felt as if I had skipped a page or missed a reference that would make some kind of sense of what the writer was referring to at that moment. This is one of those books that I'm thrilled I didn't buy.
