Entropy by Dana Hayward is a science fiction novel set in the year 2066 in which planet Earth is dying because of a mysterious reason. While countries were facing famine, droughts, plague, and political unrest, the President of the United States has a plan. President Myung Kim has enlisted the help of a young biologist, John McCabe, to cultivate edible plants on the Moon in a last attempt to save Earth. But the USA is not the only one. China is also working on settling a colony on the Moon to do the same. However, the Moon is not the prize; the final destination is Mars, and to thrive there. Things go awry, and before they know it, the state of affairs is complicated. An assassination attempt in the highest office in the USA is just enough to tilt the balance and make things worse. In the midst of it all, the future of humanity hangs by a thread. Can John and the rest succeed?

Fascinating to say the least, the story is set in the near future and grim enough to make you pause and wonder. John McCabe is the driving force of the plot. His efforts to create edible plants on the Moon sets the tone of the story. From there onward, readers have to learn new names and new characters and understand their intentions to stay on track with the plot. Author Dana Hayward did justice to the story and the characters. Yes, it is complex, but it is a good kind of complex that immerses you in the story and makes you want to read for hours. The pace is fast, the narrative is intelligent, and the actual story is very satisfying. The book not only reflects upon a future that is very possible but on the greedy, predatory nature of humans. Entropy would make a great motion picture.
