Some stories are epic.
The Earth is in a state of collapse, with wars breaking out over resources and an environment pushed to the edge by human greed.
Three living generation ships have been built with a combination of genetic mastery, artificial intelligence, technology, and raw materials harvested from the asteroid belt. This is the story of one of them-43 Ariadne, or Forever, as her inhabitants call her-a living world that carries the remaining hopes of humanity, and the three generations of scientists, engineers, and explorers working to colonize her.
From her humble beginnings as a seedling saved from disaster to the start of her journey across the void of space toward a new home for the human race, The Stark Divide tells the tales of the world, the people who made her, and the few who will become something altogether beyond human.
Humankind has just taken its first step toward the stars.
"I loved the diversity of the characters, all without the common angst over who they are, or the usual mutterings of those around them... This is a great science-fiction novel, and a cracking start to a gripping series... a great novel, with awesome world-building and a plot that satisfies the sci-fi buff in all of us. Five stars." --Jayne Lockwood, WROTE
"I spent several evenings getting lost in the story and staying up far too late in order to read just one more chapter." --Anne Barwell, Drops of Ink
"A science fiction novel with a classic premise that delivers drama, action, technology, and heart. I haven't felt this way after reading a sci-fi book since reading an Asimov or Heinlein novel. Coatsworth is to be congratulated for capturing the spirit of those writers and creating a new tale that will make readers look to the stars. --Sci Fi Pulse
