The Swarm (book #3) – An ancient hatred burns deep
Iapetus in Saturn’s orbit: Antisoc Outer has been destroyed and now the intelligent gas creature, the Swarm, is tightening its grip on the solar system.
Between it and its final goal, Earth, lie Iapetus Control, Saturn’s ice miners, Mars, the Moon and the luxurious Lagrange spa stations.
Iapetus Sector Manager ‘The Padre’ and his lover, Laura Bradley, are working with two super intelligent AIs in a desperate bid to find a way to stop the Swarm’s relentless progress. If they fail their only hope is for everyone in Saturn’s proximity to flee in a motley fleet of refugee spaceships.
Milla Carter and her friends know there is no escape from the cloud beast. Mankind’s only hope is to destroy it before it snuffs every soul on Earth. But there seems no defence against its immense power.
Things look desperate. Will the Swarm see the end of human civilisation, will it be wiped out when the fire of envy pours from the sky?

INDIES BOOK AWARD FINALIST - Science Fiction
THE SUN newspaper on the first volume in the series, Soul’s Asylum: “ A weird, vivid and creepy book, not for the faint hearted. But it’s originality and top writing make for a great read ****.”
TV Presenter JULIETTE FOSTER: "Pearson is the possessor of an extraordinary imagination that brilliantly assaults every variant of the sci-fi genre."
Telepath and psychopath-buster Milla Carter continues to fight a far greater threat from outer space.
London: Hovering over the inky shadows of the megacity’s crevassed streets, a patrol drone discovers a corpse – a dead woman, garroted with a cheese wire and scalped, the signature MO of the ‘Sioux’ serial killer who has prowled the capital for years.
In hot pursuit, the sexy telepath Milla Carter finds herself incapable of reading the killer’s thoughts. The psychopath, who turns out to be telepath opaque, is damn near impossible to ensnare.
In need of reinforcements, she joins the telepath sisterhood in their fight against members of the Earth’s Senate – until, they learn that a deadly alien swarm is closing in on the outer fringes of space.
Soul's Asylum (book #1)
THE SUN: “A weird, vivid and creepy book, not for the faint hearted. But it’s originality and top writing make for a great read ****.”
The second volume in the series, Soul's Asylum - Star Weaver, is a 2016 Indies Finalist in Science Fiction.
TV Presenter, JULIETTE FOSTER: "...Pearson is the possessor of an extraordinary imagination that brilliantly assaults every variant of the sci-fi genre. His writing is vivid, urban and unflinching in its descriptions, taking the reader on a breathtaking journey through Saturn's rings, outer world 'constructs', altered perceptions and a glorious African landscape smouldering with sexual heat and the odour of violence. This is hard-hitting story telling with full-on language and a brutally splendid plot twist, which, if you make it to the end, will leave you crossing your legs!"
‘The dry thing behind her eyes made her stand up; it stooped, collected the child into its mother’s arms and stepped out into space.’ We pick up the story of Milla Carter after the destruction of the Body Holiday Foundation. She has ripped down the poisoned tree but the parasite still lives, and the infection is worse than anyone could possibly imagine. It is no longer just Carter fighting for survival and the forces arrayed against her are more powerful than ever before. From a ledge 173 floors above the Moscow streets to New York, the asteroid belt and beyond, Soul’s Asylum establishes Derek E Pearson as one of the most prolific imaginations in the science fiction arena. ‘Look at it, my first sight of alien life and it’s infesting a chunk of murdered human meat.’ ‘Where Pearson will take you is impossible to predict, strap in and enjoy the ride. The Body Holiday trilogy has concluded, Soul’s Asylum begins a new epic tale in the same universe. We are no longer asking who dunnit but what – and why?’
