Thornbury, ON, Canada - December 5, 2023 - If you are looking for a gripping sci-fi adventure that will take you to the edge of the galaxy and beyond, check out Peril in Paradise, the latest novel by military veteran and Canadian author Zanne Raby.
Peril in Paradise is the fourth installment in “The Chronicles of Deneb” series, which follows the exploits of Dr. Daniel Radu and his crew—fugitives from a dying Earth who seek a new home among the stars. On Cepheus-9, Radu and the crew have settled in on the beautiful tropical planet peopled by an advanced indigenous culture. But they are faced with an undeniable existential threat when their peaceful existence is shattered by a deadly disease. When the Collective—a powerful consortium of planets—determines that the humans are the carriers, the hunt is on. Daniel and his team must conceal their true origins in a struggle for survival. Deception and courage reign key for all to survive the pending doom in paradise, while Daniel, haunted by his own guilt, will do everything in his power to keep his family and crew safe from harm.
Raby, who retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force after 38 years of service, says she draws inspiration from her own experiences and travels across Canada, the United States, Europe, the Middle East. She enjoys writing sci-fi because it allows her to explore different themes and scenarios that reflect the current issues and challenges of our world today.
“I think sci-fi is a great genre to address topics like climate change, bioengineering, colonization, identity, and morality. It also gives me a lot of creative freedom to imagine new worlds, cultures, and technologies. I try to make my stories realistic and relatable, but also exciting and entertaining,” she says. “The Chronicles of Deneb began as a hobby after I retired, but soon I realized I had a passion for storytelling.”
Released on December 5, 2023, Peril in Paradise is available on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords as well as Raby’s website, www.ridgecrestbooks.com. She says she is currently working on the fifth novel in the series, which will continue the saga of Daniel and his crew.
