Summary :

Moorise is the epic story of the first permanent human settlement on the Moon.

Brilliant, driven, visionary, former astronaut Paul Stavanger seizes his chance to use his power at Masterson Aerospace to colonize the last frontier, creating a viable, flourishing, nearly self-sufficient community at Moonbase.

When his son Douglas comes of age, his determination to carry on where his father left off brings him to Moonbase, and a crisis that can only be resolved by his triumph or its destruction.

Harsh, dangerous, strangely beautiful, the Moon becomes not just the background to their story but a living presence, leading both the Stavangers and their enemies onwards to glory, to disaster, and ultimately, to a new future for mankind.
