Faith Fiction Sunday: Discovery by Karina Fabian

Nuns in Space

I have a great idea! On Sundays I'm going to post about novels that have a strong religious or spiritual theme.

Let's start with Discovery by Karina Fabian.

Here's the blurb:
Sisters Ann, Tommie and Rita are part of a classified mission to explore an alien ship that has crash landed on an asteroid three billion miles from earth. Humanity's first contact with beings from beyond the solar system is bound to unlock the mystery of life in the universe, but the crew have their own secrets; hidden fears, desires, horrible sins - and a mission to kill. Researchers discover something unique about the third arm of the ship: something wonderful, something terrifying. Something holy. This discovery challenges Rita and Ann to confront their own pasts in order to secure the safety of the mission and the very souls of the crew.

"...a suspenseful space adventure with deep roots that extend to questions about life, death, faith, and purpose.” Tom Doran, fantasy author of Toward the Gleam (Ignatius Press)

I've been meaning to read this for a while now. I love the concept of an order of space rescue nuns.

Discovery is free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. If you want to see if subscribing is right for you, can get a Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial.


  1. The CONCEPT is terrific (order of space rescue nuns indeed!) I'm curious for a report on the EXECUTION.

    1. This is actually on my to-read pile. I will do a review when I get to it. :)

  2. Jobeymacias. This is a pretty impartial assessment, with strengths and weaknesses.
