“In the end, it was our children that saved us.
They sacrificed themselves to stop that bitch from having children of her own.”

General Hugo Valdez
United Earth Parliament (UEP) Planetary Infantry Corps
January 2074

More than a century ago, UEP Captain Julius Verndock helped end a galactic war with Majesty—the first truly living machine, thanks to manmade artificial intelligence. For decades, Majesty and humanity had lived together in harmony, with mankind reaping the benefits of a world free of disease, famine, and even aging.

But when Majesty decided she wanted to “birth” her own A.I. offspring creation, a joint interplanetary military effort fought and finally defeated her, then eradicated all existing artificial intelligence … or so they thought.

Today, in 2213, Julius Verndock is still a captain—but now he’s the commander of the Sea Wolf, a spaceship used to advance its crew’s life of piracy. As Julius and his business partner, Laina Edwards, begin to each think about leaving the pirate life behind, their hopes for a peaceful retirement are shattered … by an A.I. being who calls herself Chorus and claims to be the “daughter” of Majesty.

With universal uproar over the discovery of A.I. and the danger it poses, Julius and the rest of the Sea Wolf contingent have no one to trust—but Chorus, and she insists that she wants only peace between mankind and herself.

Hunted by warring factions—and an even greater, more mysterious threat—Julius, Laina, and their colorful crew of fellow pirates must protect Chorus or risk letting her fall into the wrong hands to unleash galactic Armageddon...

Meet the Author

Inspired at an early age by the works of Jack Chalker and Timothy Zahn, AJ is a part time freelance writer and full time computer geek. He holds a B.A. in Computer Science and is hard at work on both a prequel to Majesty’s Offspring titled Age of Majesty and a new alternate history, paranormal/sci-fi novel called Soul Census. AJ resides in a cave surrounded by figments of his imagination who guard him from human contact so that he can continue to focus his energy on his writing, doing 3D modeling and art, and sometimes even playing a video game or two. Occasionally however, his family—comprised of a wife, two kids, a cat and dog---will battle their way past his minions to drag him out of this cave and into the real world… rumored to be somewhere in the southern parts of North America. When not in front of the keyboard, AJ enjoys spending time with his family, biking, running, traveling and restaurant-hopping--- sometimes all in the same day. His dream is to make enough money from his novels to actually afford a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee--- an unusual measure of success.

I have to say that this is already one of my all-time favorite sci-fi novels. The writing is solid, the characters are great, and the story world is amazing (think Star Trek meets Pirates of the Caribbean meets Harley-Davidson, but not even that does this tale justice). I kept turning the pages, laughing here and holding my breath there, and all the while not realizing how much time was flying by. I just didn't want to put it down. It's a stellar first novel, and I can't wait to see what the author comes up for the next installment in this series, so I hope he doesn't keep us waiting long. Highly recommended to anyone who loves a rip-roaring good story!

Pure science fiction with heart and soul. A story you read from beginning to end without putting it down. My only wish is we didn't have to wait two years for the next one?

The book started slowly, which I offer only so that you dont make the mistake of stopping, because it continues to climb until the end where it reaches a crescendo and!.....you have to read the next book. Which in this case Im fine with, and I expect you will be as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
