Nicholas C. Rossisabout this book: Pearseus is an epic fantasy series with strong science fiction and metaphysical elements. Both books 1 and 2 have reached #1 on Amazon. To celebrate the release of book 3, a bundle of all three books is now released.
• The Story
The series starts on New Year's Eve, the year of 2099. The guests aboard the spaceship Pearseus won't get to countdown seconds, though. Soon they'll be counting bodies and survivors after the spaceship's crash landing on another planet. One not as empty as it seems.
The bundle contains the three first books in the series. These span 300 years and examine what happens when humanity is forced to start over. Again.
• The Inspiration
The concept of Pearseus came to me after reading Martin's Song of Fire and Ice series, followed by Jim Lacey's The First Clash and Herodotus' Cyrus the Great and Rise of Persia, which describe the fatal battle on Marathon between Greece and Persia in the 5th century BC.
Marathon Bay is a 20' drive from my home, and I'd often visited the tomb where the ancient Athenians buried their dead, so I thought at the time, "wouldn't it be great if someone did what Martin did for medieval England, only with the story of Greece vs. Persia? And in space? How cool would that be?" Then it occurred to me: so, what's stopping me from writing it?
I hope you enjoy the result!

Compelling and highly imaginative
a review by Effrosyni MoschoudiThe Pearseus Series is a highly imaginative ride, thanks to the masterful pen of Nicholas Rossis. The themes are timeless, being the fight for freedom and justice, as well as unconditional love in all its kinds and facets. The battle scenes are epic, the characters fleshed out beautifully. I would recommend this series highly to anyone who enjoys fantasy and scifi.
