A Space Opera Adventure Series

by V. J. Mikles

He dreamed of escaping. She had a plan.

Had Douglas found his chance to break free, or had he allied himself with crazy?

He’d never flown his patchwork biplane, but he and his father had dreamed of flying it over the mountains. His father’s work had been sanctioned, Douglas’ was not. The stolen parts and the fuel were sure to land him in prison. Or worse, dead. But the moment Sky saw the plane, she knew she’d found her escape.

Sky wasn’t like any woman in Rocan.

She seemed to appear from nowhere. She spoke a dozen languages, and she claimed to be over a hundred years old, though she didn’t look it. She knew how to fix ancient technology, and carried devices unlike anything they had in Rocan. And she was determined to fly his plane out of the city whether he wanted to go or not.

She claimed there were places to go – cities they could run to. Spaceships that would take them to the moon and back. She would take him as far as he wanted to go.

Was she crazy?

Was he?

You’ll love this sci-fi adventure, because freedom is worth fighting for, even if it requires a giant leap of faith.

The New Dawn is a science fiction action adventure series. Humans have moved away from this solar system and colonized a new planet, Aquia, and that planet's moons: Terrana and Caldori. They think they’ve hit a gold mine – an uninhabited water planet – but something strange evolves the longer they stay. Humans developing super-human ability. Not great strength or power, just something to suggest that there once was life on this planet, and that life shifted to another plane of existence.

It’s too late to leave. The planet was devastated after a war with the Caldori settlement. The surviving cities retreated into protective domes, and have lived in relative isolation for the past four hundred years, resulting in divergent and unique cultures, some thriving, some dying, some dead and gone. As Oriana's crew limps home on their ancient, dilapidated cargo ship, they happen upon settlements and nomadic tribes, each with a survival story to tell. Each with their own superstitions about about their evolving abilities.

You will love this science fiction adventure series featuring found families, supernatural aliens, and hope for tomorrow. Get it now!
