A Blend of the Classic Bible Story and Science Fiction
A long time in the future, humans have ravaged the Earth. Humans have inhabited Venus and Mars and as the Earth becomes inhabitable again, the A.R.C. initiative will begin to repopulate the Earth headed by the Zarc family. The narrator of the book, Noah Zarc, is the youngest son of Noah Sr. and Hannah. A bit rambunctious and an excellent pilot, Noah Jr. was born a paraplegic, that doesn’t stop him from getting into all kinds of trouble.
The author takes the classic Bible story of Noah’s Ark and puts a science fiction spin on it. It calls to question a fundamental question that humans face today, was the Earth made for humans? animals? or can we all co-exist? Very interesting read, well crafted and puts a new twist on a well loved story. A delight for both young readers and adults alike.

The Buzz About the Noah Zarc Books
Book 1: “Pease’s strength as a storyteller lies in his ability to connect multiple time periods imaginatively, as well as Noah’s excited, fast-paced narration.” ~ Publishers Weekly
Book 1: “If I had read this book at age 10, I think it would have made me love SF just as much as reading Asimov did. If you like the non-stop action and humor of Rick Riordan’s Olympians books, I think you’ll also like Noah Zarc.” ~ Sher A. Hart, book blogger and author
Book 2: “This is another great mind-bender. The wild time jump details are fabulously thought out and cause some unexpected results.” ~ Michelle Isenhoff, Children’s Author
Book 2: “A well-written, adventurous read for young readers and even adults, Noah Zarc blasts through space and into your imagination.” ~ TKristufek, Amazon Reviewer
Book 3: “I was completely captured by the characters, the action and the issues and questions: set in fantasy but integrating concepts and engaging readers with a fun tale that teaches as it entertains.” ~ Gaele, Amazon Reviewer
About the Author: D. Robert Pease
D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn’t been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer’s Sirens. It’s not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life.
