    This is my second book, but my first jump into sci fi, which is my first love. It is best described as a space opera, or as my daughter eloquently put it, an adventure in space. To any old school gamers here who read it, you will definitely see the influence of Elite in its pages, or possibly Privateer. There are many more in this series planned.

    I hope you find it enjoyable.

    “Do you know what you are?”

    She sighed. “I don’t even know what my name is, although I know I have one. That is why you doubt me. Even I doubt myself.”

    It has been nearly a thousand years since humanity discovered the means to travel between the stars. Mankind has spread throughout the galaxy in search of new planets to colonize. They have discovered that life developed on hundreds of planets throughout the universe but have yet to find any sign of intelligent life outside of Earth. Empires have formed, alliances forged, and wars fought, all between humans.

    Kale is a former slave of the Dominion, a ruthless empire ruled by genetically enhanced human beings. He captains a ship called the Midnight Oil on many adventures. Kale earns his living transporting messages, passengers and cargo throughout the galaxy. He embarks on his latest journey after accepting a mission to extract a wealthy man’s daughter from a fringe planet.

    Her rescue takes him through sundry explorations which find him in the midst of a civil war on a frontier planet, in the throes of experimenting with new space-travel technology, and executes a jump to the farthest reaches of the galaxy to uncover an ancient secret—one that will change the fate of mankind.
    In humanity’s quest to discover intelligent extraterrestrial life, they neglected to look within themselves.
