Origin, Paperback Book


Concluding the epic Manifold series that began with TIME and continued with SPACE: the adventures of the maverick astronaut Reid Malenfant bring him at last to the beginning of everything.

NASA astronaut Reid Malenfant is flying a military jet over Africa when a vast electric-blue circle appears in the air - and the Red Moon dramatically replaces our ancient, cherished moon.

Malenfant's plane is destroyed as he chases the alien circle of light.

Though Malenfant survives, his wife Emma is swept up and hurled towards the Red Moon.

Through the months of floods and earthquakes that follow Malenfant singlemindedly lobbies for a moonshot to rescue her.

He's heading for the Red Moon where time and space converge, the origin of the manifold.
