"Love flourishes amid technical puzzles and planetary mysteries in Latner's strong debut... Well-known for her hard SF short fiction, Latner should win new readers with this fine first novel." —Publisher's Weekly
"Houston" was the first word from the Moon. Hurricane Moon by Houston author Alexis Glynn Latner is a science fiction novel about mankind's next momentous first step into the universe: a starship seeking a new world with a large moon. It takes a large moon to stabilize a planet's axis and bring life-giving tides and orderly seasons. The astronauts and colonists of the starship Aeon discover an Earthlike new world that has a huge blue moon—an oceanic planet covered with hurricanes. And then their season of crisis begins.
