Amelia County author Randy Hill is taking the science fiction world by storm with his debut novel, “Refusal.” Fans of Star Wars are sure to enjoy this thrilling new sci-fi/fantasy saga, set in the year 2113.

In “Refusal,” Earth’s atmospheric temperature has risen to a nearly uninhabitable level of heat and blinding light. If not for the 300 rotating Earth/Shield satellites protecting the planet from the sun’s devastating rays, all would perish.

The Citons, an alien race, want to claim Earth as their own, and they have devised a plan to rid the planet of its pesky inhabitants without destroying what they came for — by shutting down the Earth/Shields.

Outnumbered and outgunned, humans must rely on their wits to survive, and for the first time in history, the many nations around the globe will join together and unify into one race — the human race.

“Refusal” is an epic tale of good versus evil, and author Hill hopes his audience will enjoy some of the new twists he has incorporated throughout his debut novel.

“Believe me, it’s not your typical science fiction book. Readers will laugh, shed a tear, and cheer for the many relatable characters. In the end, I hope readers will be left with an overall renewed appreciation for life here on our planet, the life that we all take for granted every day,” Hill said.
