Synopsis

It sounds like a simple assignment: track down the mysterious Star Wraith and put an end to its rampage. But when Travis Archer and his team of inept soldiers find themselves the most wanted people in the galaxy – hounded by assassins, terrorists and their own military – they realise the Wraith is just a symptom of a much larger problem…

Finding war raging between one army intent on destroying an entire species, and another that will destroy the galaxy, Travis must put aside his fears and his past to uncover the truth behind it all. To become the hero he’s always imagined.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
: I have no doubt that this will appeal to many Star Trek and Star Wars fans. Unfortunately there are too many inconsistencies for me to agree with them. Without  doubt the author can tell a good story but any real fan of sci fi would notice things such as the liberal use of matter transporters to move humans even though it is previously stated that they were used for goods only. Needless to say none of the hero’s team gets injured by this practice.
Time and again journeys are made with no regard to the distances involved and the reader is just expected to accept this. I was reminded of early Bulldog Drummond novels where the hero can get out of any situation along the lines of ‘…and with a bound he was free.’
This a shame, as there is the basis of a really first  class novel here and all that was needed was a good editor to tell the author where he was going wrong.
