Ambition: The Long Haul Book 1
by Geoff North
During an age of rapidly dwindling energy resources and greedy corporate expansion, Earth receives a warning from a not too distant star system.
We are aware of your existence. We will end you.
The colossal mining vessel Ambition undergoes a militarized refit and is sent from the Sol System to confront the alien threat of Pegasi 51. A voyage at near light speed encounters catastrophic events. Seventy years of travel between stars stretches into a seven century odyssey. All communication to and from home has been severed, and the civilization waiting for them ahead has remained ominously silent.
Captain Ly Sulafat, Ambition’s 30th – and likely last – commander, leads this final generation of weary travelers into a hostile star system, ill-prepared, and far too inexperienced to confront what awaits them.
The seven-hundred-year journey has ended. It’s time for war.
