In a world gone crazy, it is often the humans who are at fault, seeking answers to questions we are not yet ready to understand…
Lieutenant Commander Joshua Manson’s focus was on his career which has taken him to many places; just not the one he has always dreamed of going – into space. His sometimes controversial methods during missions gives him the reputation of being a soldier who doesn’t always play by the rules.
A summons to Washington, D.C., after a challenging mission, leaves him questioning if he’ll have a career at all; but once there, Josh is surprised when he is offered the chance of a lifetime, to command a mission in space to investigate an unknown object. The more he learns, the more determined he is to lead it, even if it means a one way ticket.
Cassa de Rola’s family has lived for centuries in the quiet valley where they farm. Her family has tried to remain untouched by the growing unrest between the intergalactic military forces fighting for control over their planet. All of that changes when an unusual object falls from the sky and Cassa finds a strange male in the container. She knows that taking him in will endanger the lives of everyone close to her, but she can’t leave him defenseless. Now, the military forces on both sides want to discover the origins of the container and its missing contents.
When the fight between the Legion and the Gallant Order escalates to all-out war, a new rebel leader emerges from the stars that will change the galaxy, and Cassa’s life, forever.

“Ok….I really, really did not want to like this book! I wanted Ms. Smith’s next book to be one of her other series as I love them so much. She hooked me from the first word and off I was in another adventure! And what a ride it was!! Loved it and much to my dismay I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series! She did it again and kudos to her! Fantastic book and well worth reading!”
“Fantastic story, Well written with believable and understandable science. Great characters that you want to stand up and cheer for and lots of edge of your seat excitement and danger. I truely did not want this book to end, and when it did my first thought was “how long till the next one?” One of the great things about SE Smith is that as soon as I finish reading one of her stories I immediately want to read something else by her. I am positive you will love this story along with any of her other books.”
