Rainbow Panda loves firecrackers and has just meet Dynasty Dragon on the Island of Fujimini. He is very excited. What an adventure. A New Year celebration,a bit of disappointment for some of the characters and a fiasco. A wonderful story of Asian culture,family,friends,and adventure. A delightful adventure for both young readers and old. Beautiful illustrations and a glossary of “Chic” Asian Associations at the back. Received for an honest review from the author.

Overview(From  Barnes & Nobles)

Paul Gillebaard’s brilliant debut novel is a magnificent tale of seemingly doing the impossible, sending an American back to the moon…today.

China claims the moon landings never happened and that they have proof. Losing worldwide prestige is not an option for the United States. America must prove they won the space race of the 60s.

CIA agent and former NASA candidate Peter Novak, son of a U.S. moonwalker, is selected to fly a mission back to the moon against UN sanctions to set the record straight. With no manned rocket close to flying, America must figure out how to get their man into deep space undetected and without international help.

Restoring his father’s good name and the reputation of his country on a one-way ticket to lunar orbit sounds crazy—but its Peter’s only chance to break free of Earth’s atmosphere and fulfill his dream as an astronaut. Peter enlists a former space rival as his unlikely co-pilot, and the two battle to outwit China’s efforts to sabotage the operation and beat the Chinese back to the moon.

America is thrust into a race back to the moon—And this time it’s personal.

MY THOUGHTS:

MOON HOAX by Paul Gillebaard is an interesting science fiction/historical fiction/contemporary romance. What an interesting and intriguing story filled with space adventure,suspense,CIA agent,former NASA candidate,sabotage,the Cold War,moon landing,and China.With a complex plot and interesting characters what not to like. It will have you questioning,”Did we get to the Moon first”? Follow Peter Novak on a journey to discover and prove the truth of his father’s moon landing. It does have some Chinese phases in the story you may or may not understand,but it did not distract from the story. For a debut author, “Moon Hoax” is written with authentic details,enthusiasm,with solid characters and an intriguing while complex plot. A must for any one who enjoys space adventure,moon landings, NASA,and a bit of romance. If you enjoyed the movie “Deep Six” you will enjoy this story. Received  for an honest review from the author.
