Published in rapid succession, Jason M. Hough’s first three novels, The Darwin Elevator, The Exodus Towers, and The Plague Forge, earned mountains of praise and comparisons to such authors as James S. A. Corey and John Scalzi. Now Hough returns with a riveting near-future spy thriller that combines the adrenaline of a high-octane James Bond adventure with mind-blowing sci-fi speculations worthy of Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

Technologically enhanced superspy Peter Caswell has been dispatched on a top-secret assignment unlike any he’s ever faced. A spaceship that vanished years ago has been found, along with the bodies of its murdered crew—save one. Peter’s mission is to find the missing crew member, who fled through what appears to be a tear in the fabric of space. Beyond this mysterious doorway lies an even more confounding reality: a world that seems to be Earth’s twin.

Peter discovers that this mirrored world is indeed different from his home, and far more dangerous. Cut off from all support, and with only days to complete his operation, Peter must track his quarry alone on an alien world. But he’s unprepared for what awaits on the planet’s surface, where his skills will be put to the ultimate test—and everything he knows about the universe will be challenged in ways he never could have imagined.

Stunning and Brilliant! Zero World is an a high velocity science fiction mystery that will take your breath away.

Once again Jason M. Hough, the author of Dire Earth Cycle series, delivers with an amazing new adventure called Zero World.

Captivated from the beginning, this is sure to become an all time favorite for me and any scifi fan. The story is presented in a graphically violent and highly descriptive manner so it may not be a tale for the young reader. For me, that was enhanced by the amazing world building, outstanding storytelling and heart pounding pace that was absolutely riveting.

Hough's ability and imagination has rocketed him to one of my favorite science fiction authors.

I received this ARC copy of Zero World from Random House Publishing Group - Del Rey Spectra in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 18, 2015.
