Particle Beast Front Cover

They say the truth can set you free. Yet on Mars the truth can kill.

Zeke Hailey is happy enough at the Chasm, the 23rd century school for psychics. But an answer to a secret throws his life into chaos. Now Zeke must choose between his friends and his missing father. Mars, however, isn’t ready to let him go.

World famous translator Dr. Enki arrives with a sinister plan and he needs Zeke’s ability to speak Martian to help him uncover an ancient Martian city.

A hideous monster lurks in this alien ghost town, with the terrifying power to erase atoms. A creature so deadly, it must never get free.

But more dangers are waiting for him inside than just the monster. Zeke must find a way to defeat his greatest enemy before the fabric of time and space unravels forever.

New Release: In the Heat of the Day by Peter Rondel

IFWG Publishing is very pleased to announce the release of Peter Rondel‘s climate change science fiction novel, In the Heat of the Day. “We are particularly proud of this title,” Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia said, “as it is our first adult science fiction novel for our Australian imprint, as well as covering an underrepresented subgenre – climate change. Two firsts.”

Peter Rondel is not new to IFWG Publishing, as he has a wonderful children’s illustrated novel published with us, A Magpie Called Will, in collaboration with New Zealand artist, Frances Hutt.

For decades, the subject of climate change and global warming were regarded as nonsense by many. When the threat becomes a reality, one young technician seeks solutions to the world’s biggest problems when oil becomes unavailable.

The need for electric power and new means of transport become his dedication. Unable to afford patents, his inventions become the target for a criminal group. His girlfriend is kidnapped to force him to cooperate.

Technically, he deceives the group with false information and is forced to relocate to a cave in Australia’s far north. He is faced with the consequences of his deceptions when global tragedies become the result.

In the Heat of the Day is currently available in Kindle and Kobo format, and will be soon available in print and other ebook formats. EPUB and Kindle compatible formats can now be purchased direct from the publisher.
