Colonization of an inhabited planet is forbidden. Someone broke the rules.

Under mysterious circumstances, the colony ship, Odyssey, settled on the strangely barren world of Sahara. Eighty years later, and with no help in sight, their long-term survival is in question.

When help finally arrives, long buried secrets of the past, and the machinations of a scheming politician, threaten to upset carefully laid plans for prosperity.

Caught in the middle are the Rxyl – an elusive, telepathic species already inhabiting the planet. Unaware of the human intrigue, a fortuitous accident forges a bond between the races which will alter the destiny of both peoples forever.

“Political intrigue and problems face the second ship sent from Earth. A good read…” 

“Smart, engaging and full of interesting technology. I’m looking forward to the 3rd book!”

(Author’s note – though each book may be enjoyed as a stand alone, I recommend reading them in sequence to get the complete backstory.)
