Experience the vast tapestry of After Earth in a novelization unlike any other: a 1,000-year saga
featuring original content from the mind of Peter David, the veteran sci-fi
author who helped develop the movie’s richly imagined world. This is the
complete, never-before-seen chronicle of the extraordinary family that’s been
across the universe and back—from humanity’s last days on Earth through the
events of the epic film!
General Cypher Raige of the United Ranger Corps is only
the latest in a long line of heroes. For 1,000 years since the globe was
engulfed by environmental apocalypse, the Raiges have been instrumental in
humanity’s survival. They led the way as the survivors abandoned Earth, settled
a hospitable planet called Nova Prime, withstood an onslaught from a mysterious
alien force, and carved out a new home in the farthest reaches of the galaxy.
Now Cypher has returned to his family after an extended
tour of duty. For his 13-year-old son, Kitai, tagging along with his famous
father is the adventure of a lifetime—and a chance to salvage their
relationship. But when an asteroid collides with their craft, they make a crash
landing that leaves Cypher seriously—perhaps fatally—wounded.
Kitai Raige has always wanted to prove that he has what
it takes to live up to his illustrious name. Now, all too soon, he gets his
chance. With his father’s life on the line, Kitai must venture out into the
strange, hostile terrain of a new world that seems eerily familiar: Earth. Download and start listening now!
