The Expanse meets Star Trek in this military science fiction epic from award-winning author Chris Pourteau.
Xenophobia nearly ended the Sol Alliance when humanity warred with the Arcœnum, an exotic alien species with irresistible mental abilities. Mankind survived thanks to the quick thinking of a brash, young starship officer, Nick Stone, who spends the rest of his life reluctantly fielding the endless accolades of a grateful humanity. Now, at 75, he’s desperate to retire.
“S-O-S. All ships and stations. My name is Alice Keller…”
When a distress call goes out from Drake’s World, Stone is pressured by politics into one final mission: rescue a young girl marooned on the planet, then sail triumphantly into retirement. But when she demonstrates amazing psychokinetic abilities, Bragg will stop at nothing to exploit her as he prepares for a war of revenge against the Arcœnum.
