Summary

In the not-so-distant future, flight culture has replaced car culture. Two of Earth’s largest corporations now supply the planet with the technology and fuel to make air and space flight available to everyone. 

Taft Gaurdia spends his weekends at an abandoned flying field, racing through the skies with his three best friends and Kaytha Morrow, the girl he longs to be with. After receiving a mysterious message from her deceased NASA-scientist father, Kaytha and Taft make a shocking discovery. 

With Earth now suddenly facing a great disaster, a ruthless and power hungry enemy emerges. Unwittingly, Taft, Kaytha, and their friends are thrust into the middle of humanity's fight for survival and future among the stars.

Embark is the first book in a new series by Jon “Justice” LoGiudice.

Great First Book!

Likable characters and original technology ideas, it isn’t perfect but it is enjoyable with a good adventure that keeps you interested until the end. I would recommend this book to others without hesitation.

A great start to hopefully a dynasty

Fantastic initial offering from Jon, great character development, great story, it grabs you and does not let go and leaves the reader upset that it is over. Also leaves the reader smiling at the planet named Zima, for those that know Jon well, it is a great inside joke to end the book on. Looking forward to the next installment. This has comparisons to Vernor Vinge all over it! Great job! And wonderful book

Great Read for an Author's First Book

I finished this book and was ready to listen to it again! Being from Southern Arizona I love that it was set here and that the Names Old Pueblo and Camelback were used for Tucson and Phoenix. I also loved that Jon honored one of my favorite radio talk show hosts who passed a couple of years back in the novel as well. I can't wait for the next installment in this series if there is one and look forward to reading more of Jon's books when they come out. 5 Stars Jon!
