Pillar to the Sky

(2014)
A novel by

 
In One Second After, William R. Forstchen stunned readers with an all-too-plausible doomsday scenario. In Pillar to the Sky he offers to answer another. Pandemic drought, skyrocketing oil prices, dwindling energy supplies, and wars of water scarcity threaten the planet.

Four people are key, but they are surrounded by enemies at every turn - oil-rich nations and the ruthless transnational petrol firms which feed off of them, corrupt but influential politicians and ideological fanatics who see the tower as an assault on God.

Eva Morgan - a brilliant and beautiful scientist of Ukrainian descent, she has had a lifelong obsession to build a pillar to the sky, a vertiginous tower which that would mine the power of the sun and supply humanity with cheap, limitless energy forever.

Gary Morgan - a man who has shared her quest from the beginning and struggled with her every step of the way. He sees the pillar as nothing less than earth's salvation and humanity's last chance.

Victoria - their fierce fiery daughter, she is as stunningly attractive and ferociously intelligent as her mother. To her, the project is life-or-death, and she will do anything to make it work.

Jason Fitzhugh - his passion for Victoria is as relentless as his dedication to her dream. He will risk life and court death for the pillar - and for the woman he loves.

Franklin Smith - a powerful, aging billionaire, who has risen from the poverty-stricken world of the segregated south to wealthy beyond dreams, is imbued with an overpowering vision . . . to save the human race from itself and to set the world on a course toward the stars. Seeing the pillar as his own personal destiny, he will spend every cent, pressure every friend, and destroy every opponent to make it a success.

Smith and the Morgan family are on a mission to build a pillar to the sky and to the stars beyond. But their foes will stop at nothing to topple the tower and profit off its wreckage - even if it means global war.
