First of His Kind
by Dan Sugralinov
In the 22nd century, ex-peacekeeping captain Carter Riley discovers a baffling relic on Mars: a plate believed to be billions of years old from the ancient “Precursors.” This artifact, a mystery in itself, becomes the epicenter of an unexpected crisis when Carter’s team is ambushed by spider-like entities. Fighting for their lives, conventional weapons prove futile against these foes. As Carter is critically injured, a spray of his blood on the ancient plate ignites a luminous reaction, revealing cryptic symbols and decimating the threatening creatures. Now, with the secrets of the universe potentially within reach and deadly extraterrestrial threats emerging, Carter is thrust into an interstellar saga, unraveling the legacy of the Precursors.
