Reversal Zone Blog Tour




J. Grace Pennington has published four science fiction novels. They each have a unique bent to them, but this one is very different. Each book is a standalone, but as with any series, you get more of the story if you read them all in order. In Reversal Zone, the main character, Andi Lloyd, becomes the only one who can save the ship and crew. Can she do it in time?

About the Book

Nothing is as it should be.

After weeks of boredom, Andi is excited when the Surveyor is called upon to rescue a freighter that mysteriously vanished in uncharted space.  Excitement quickly turns to unease when the ship encounters an unknown phenomenon—a cloud that appears not to exist.  But with the freighter's crew in danger, the Surveyor has no choice but to venture into unknown territory.

As soon as they enter the cloud, its unstable effects wreak havoc on the ship.  They're flying blind.  Every piece of equipment is malfunctioning.  And every member of the crew is unable to think straight or act like themselves—except Andi.

Now she's expected to guide them through the predicament with no previous command experience and no one to turn to for support.  And with each passing hour, it becomes clear that if they don't escape the cloud soon—they won't escape it at all.

Excerpt


When I reached sickbay a second time, I found the Captain there speaking with the Doctor at the far end of the room. The Captain held his head high, and any hint of playful bickering between the two men was gone.
“...no trace at all,” the Captain was saying. “They say it disappeared almost a week ago.”
The Doctor furrowed his brows. “Just how are we supposed to find it, then?” He looked over the Captain's shoulder and saw me standing there. He cocked his head to beckon me over, and I scuttled to his side, set the box down, and kept quiet.
“They're sending someone to help.” The Captain looked down at me. “The Pigeon—the ship we were supposed to rendezvous with—has been lost. Just... vanished. No communications, no trace. They want us to investigate.”
I nodded, feeling guilty for my thrill at the prospect of a new mission.
“Sending someone?” the Doctor questioned.
The Captain nodded. “Yes. I don't know who it is. He was a guide on the Pigeon, apparently, but left before they were lost.”
“That's probably why they got lost,” the Doctor grumbled.
“So.” The Captain stood a bit straighter. “The guide is supposed to arrive tonight, and then we can start looking. I wanted to let you know.”
“Thank you.”
“I'd like you two to be present when the guide arrives. It should be at twenty-hundred.”
“We'll be there.”
With a nod and a smile, the Captain turned and left.
“I wonder who this 'guide' is, anyway,” the Doctor said, picking up a scanner from the box at his feet and setting it on a shelf in the cabinet.
“Are you grumpy 'cause there are no patients, Doctor?” I teased.
He turned and shook a finger at me. “You'd better be careful what you say, young lady. There are still a lot of cans to inventory.”
“Dad!” I protested.
I caught a grin on his face as he turned to close the cabinet.
