About The Book

A high school track star is abducted by aliens, explores strange worlds, uncovers genocide on a planetary scale, and is thrust into extraterrestrial politics that decides the fate of an Earth on the brink of war or unification.

The Abduction of Joshua Bloom tells the story of a teen and his alien abductors who justify their act in an attempt to save their people. Joshua finds himself in a world dominated by women, and men are subjugated to their whims. He travels to a dinosaur world, visits a water planet, and a world doomed by a star about to nova.

Space exploration and time travel are just two elements science fiction junkies will love about this original space opera by award winning author, Michael Thal.

” This book is perfect for the middle aged child who is too big for the typical chapter book, and too young to take on Ayn Rand. “
