Book 1: Foreign Land (Release Date: 13 September 2021)
A father struggles to keep his son and his colony alive on a dangerous planet while fighting off alien-induced hallucinations.
Hope runs deep as Smith leaves humanity’s first generation ship to lay roots with his wife and son in the open air of a new planet. When the colony ship breaks apart on entry, however, countless lives are lost, including Smith’s beloved wife. Soul-crushed, he’s left to fight for the survival of his son and those around him on a planet that’s far more dangerous and bizarre than their research had suggested. As he struggles through grief and works to stay connected to his son, he must simultaneously fight against physical attacks and mental intrusion from unknown sources.
Back on the generation ship, Smith’s apprentice Tashon searches for answers. What happened to his beloved mentor, Smith, and the colony? And why is no one talking about it? He connects with old family friend and military vet Johann, and discovers that the expedition’s leaders are focused on a much more imminent danger, one that could prove the destruction of the entire generation ship.
These two stories crash together in a fight for survival, against an enemy that no one saw coming.
