SciFi Book Club – September 26

Hey guys! We’re finally done with Dune…and Dune Messiah…and Children of Dune. This is your chance to jump into our Saturday morning SciFi book clubs! Interesting discussion, interesting books, and interesting people! 

September’s book is After Atlas by Emma Newman. Technically it is the second book in a series, but it has next-to-nothing in common with the first book and reads perfectly well as a stand-alone. The only thing you need to know is that a colony ship left Earth 40 years ago and it was a pretty big deal. That’s literally the only thing the two books have in common. 

Here’s the Goodreads pitch:
Govcorp detective Carlos Moreno was only a baby when Atlas left Earth to seek truth among the stars. But in that moment, the course of Carlos’s entire life changed. Atlas is what took his mother away; what made his father lose hope; what led Alejandro Casales, leader of the religious cult known as the Circle, to his door. And now, on the eve of the fortieth anniversary of Atlas’s departure, it’s got something to do why Casales was found dead in his hotel room—and why Carlos is the man in charge of the investigation.

To figure out who killed one of the most powerful men on Earth, Carlos is supposed to put aside his personal history. But the deeper he delves into the case, the more he realizes that escaping the past is not so easy. There’s more to Casales’s death than meets the eye, and something much more sinister to the legacy of Atlas than anyone realizes…
