2080: The world is dying. Fertile land has shrunk due to climate change, followed by drought and famine. Massive waves of refugees seek sanctuary, but like a steel trap, Fortress America has shut her doors. Mean while, the best scientists in the world are beavering away, building mega-gigantic Space Arks to shuttle hundreds of thousands of people to a colony on Mars. But in the bowels of the underworld, a group of biohackers thought it was a good idea to team up with a terrorist organization and voila, you get a deadly bio-engineered disease that sweeps across the globe. And the lies begin – world leaders insisting a vaccine is ready – so roll up your sleeves. Ah, the feeling of desperation's fading – let's just get on with our lives again!

But the truth is very different. In The Flight of the Mayflower, the first novel in The Deneb Chronicles, Daniel Radu – project manager for NASA's Space Ark Mayflower – uncovers a global conspiracy of immense proportions. World leaders and the elite are readying themselves for a one-way ticket to Mars, leaving the masses clutching at straws. Joined by a team of global experts, will Daniel and his colleagues succeed in thwarting the devious plot in a desperate attempt at survival?

Some reviews:

From Bill W. of Mississauga, ON
I started reading the kindle copy and as a Netflix sci-fi fan, I can fully recommend this as something that you should read. Its really compelling reading! I wouldn't be surprised if Netflix picks this up as a future movie project. If you liked Lost in Space, you'll love this. It is very exciting storytelling with some good plot twists. I'm looking forward with much anticipation to the next episode in the continuing saga of the series.

This is a story of a smoldering crew on a survival journey in a Space Ark. it is also an adventure across the landscape of space, Alien planets and the dilemma of finding civilization for a lost crew. It is a fabulous journey of hope, disappointment and discovery. An enjoyable novel.

A fast moving and quite plausible plot. Real issue woven skillfully into a captivating Sci Fi story. Can't wait for the next book!
From Michel B
A thoroughly gripping account of how a small group of humans escaping the calamities brought upon by inaction and complacency on the part of Earth's ruling countries deal with the unknown of a new alien world and its own cultural and political dynamics. I especially liked how the author explores and develops how the best of intentions frequently have unintended consequences, all the while keeping you in suspense about the fate of the colonists as they continuously deal with new and terrifying challenges, trying to survive on a new world. With the suggestion of more books to come, this promises to be a captivating series.
From Anna D

An epic space opera, based in 2080, it's not so hard to imagine by then that humans have completely destroyed planet Earth. Three country confederations have built three arks, the USA one is called the Mayflower. The president and rich people of the area have donated exorbitant amounts of money to build the ark and they are planning on spiriting themselves away before the general population knows what's going on. They didn't count on Dr. Daniel Radu - project manager for NASA's Space Ark Mayflower uncovering their secrets and he gathers up his own team and they escape the impending doom. A little mystery, adventure, political intrigue, and the fight for survival are all included in this epic space adventure. Highly recommend it.

This has been out for a while and it's pretty good, so I'm surprised it doesn't have more reviews. It's hard sci-fi and space opera, and the writing is pretty good, the plot is interesting, and I liked most of the characters. Recommended for sci-fi fans.
