"An epic science fiction political noir!" - Publisher Weekly's BookLife review

FROM #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND AWARD-WINNING SCREENWRITER NOAM JOSEPHIDES, COMES A HEART-POUNDING ROLLERCOASTER OF SCIFI MYSTERY, CONSPIRACY, TREACHERY AND REDEMPTION ABOARD THE GENERATION-SHIP 'THETIS'.

"Thought-provoking, innovative and brimming with emotional depth!" - SciFi Zone 5-star Review

"Generations proves as brisk and engaging as it is ambitious." - BookLife review

For eight generations, the Thetis has been a peaceful haven, carrying the last remnants of humanity on a journey to resettle on a new planet. Nearing its final destination, Thetis is seemingly a Utopia: egalitarian, tolerant and united. A society ready for a new beginning.

But when a strange extortion attempt targets the ship's leader, that idyllic facade begins to crack. And when SANDRINE LIET, the introvert Archivist tasked with investigating the case starts poking around - the prime suspect mysteriously disappears.

Nobody disappears on the Thetis.

Sandrine is pulled into a web of intrigue and deception, sending her on a direct collision course with the most powerful people on the Thetis. Every step she takes, her suspicions of a grand and far-reaching conspiracy grow - as are the personal consequences for her future if she keeps pursuing the investigation.

GENERATIONS is a masterful tale of mystery, intrigue and personal sacrifice where long-buried secrets, betrayals and shifting loyalties intertwine. It is the story of the indomitable will of a woman who refuses to bow down to tyranny, and of the enduring power of truth in a world built on lies.

Praise for "Generations":

"Generations delivers a profound exploration of human values, sacrifice, and the relentless pursuit of truth against all odds." - Reader's Favorite 5-star Review

"Generations' message hits hard, while being a fun and engaging rollercoaster." - SciFi Zone Review

"Extraordinary space travelers propel this dense but undeniably enthralling journey." - Kirkus Review

MEDIA REVIEWS

EXCERPT FROM THE "A" REVIEW ON BookLife:"Satisfying generation ship mystery, with strong worldbuilding.""An epic SF political noir set on a generation ship as humanity faces perhaps the most consequential decisions in its history, Generations proves as brisk and engaging as it is ambitious. The civilizational stakes, lived-in worldbuilding, and assured storytelling all satisfy."EXCERPT FROM THE 5-STAR REVIEW ON READERS FAVORITE:"Author Noam Josephides' novel grips you from the outset and it feels like you're embarking on an exhilarating odyssey through the depths of space and into the harsh truth about human nature. The narrative unfolds seamlessly, blending elements of science fiction with political mystery and thriller at a great pace, and there is always something brewing or new to uncover.The author's talent for description and atmospheric detail creates a multifaceted world aboard the ship, with characters that are fully rooted in the reality of the setting, and whose attitudes are clearly shaped by it. Sandrine Liet is, of course, a standout lead character, whose resilience and determination resonate deeply the more you get to know her and get invested in her cause.Overall, Generations is a highly recommended read for science fiction fans everywhere, delivering a profound exploration of human values, sacrifice, and the relentless pursuit of truth against all odds."EXCERPT FROM THE 5-STAR REVIEW ON SCIFI ZONE:"Generations" succeeds to extend beyond its genre in a brilliant way by confronting its protagonist with one of the smartest, most sophisticated and charismatic political rivals we've read lately.Like many cultural works dealing with political-conspiracy, Josephides is clearly interested in a much wider array of questions beyond the "whodunnit" plot: the examination of moral values, societal structures and personal ambition as foundational aspects of our species nature, and the if and how we can transcend them if we want to survive long-term."MORE REVIEWS FOR "GENERATIONS":"'Generations' message hits hard, while being a fun and engaging rollercoaster. An easy 5 star!" -- Erin B., Barnes & Noble"A timeless tale of the dark side of ambition, and the courage to defy the evil it spawns." -- A. Blake, BookHype"Noam Josephides' talent carries the scents of Polanski's "Chinatown" all the way to outer-space" -- Scifi Zone Review

“Great soft scifi with strong female lead”

Loved this book from the first page. You literally feel like the world makes total sense and the scifi element isn't made-up, but rather an extrapolation of where we live today.
If you love a good conspiracy... More
