Book cover of Carbon Planet
Carbon Planet follows a group of friends who boards a fishing boat as they celebrate their hometown football team’s championship game from out on the lake. An unknown alien ship interrupts their festivities and abducts them, but it’s not the first time the aliens have been to this planet. In fact, they have an agenda of their own, and it all links back to the ancient world when ice first began to threaten life on Earth. Months after the group’s disappearance, when the FBI’s investigation is long cold, their loved ones band together to hire a private detective who can continue the search—in this world or beyond.
Young adult and adult audiences will both find much to enjoy in Carbon Planet. Reviewers praise Carbon Planet as “an absolute adventure,” noting that the author’s use of mythical folklore and humor enhances a “fascinating story” about the planet’s past.
Casil’s sense of humor adds some levity to the story, while the creative premise surrounding global warming will resonate with environmentally conscious readers. He hopes that his work will encourage readers to consider their environmental impact, including their consumption of natural resources and water.
In a time when the threat of climate change is increasingly dire, this novel is a much-needed reminder that change is needed.
