“Sacred Planet” is set in a future where great civilizations have risen to power, each dominating one of the three galactic spiral arms closest to Earth: Orion, Carina, and Sagittarius.
Earth—the Sacred Planet—remains independent and coveted by all. So long as Earth stays independent, peace reigns in the galaxy. But now a ruthless religious faction threatens to plunge the galaxy into a catastrophic war.
The story centers around the Carinian prime minister’s daughter, Sierra Falco, and an opportunistic space scavenger, Davin de la Fossa.
Sierra’s space yacht is attacked by a powerful and shadowy enemy, destabilizing the fragile balance of the galaxy. But her attackers’ plans are disrupted when a rugged band of scavengers stumble across the yacht and jump at the opportunity to make a profit. Davin, captain of the scavengers, must choose between fabulous wealth and the nag of conscience.
