    Not at all like Star Trek or Star Wars... No weird aliens here! Ultimate Destiny's Author, Paul Harrington delves into the faster than light travel, and how it could be theoretically possible. There are ruthless corporations out to steal the lightspeed project, who will stop at nothing to cheat one man out of his dream... Faster than light travel. It's a little slow to get going, but after a few chapters you'll be right into the action... Assination attempts, space battle, espionage, and of course some romance too! Plot moves quickly with a lot of action. I liked it quite a bit.
