Overview

The discovery of a new world may be the very thing that threatens the freedom of the human race and changes the destiny of mankind forever.

Twenty-three years after the disappearance of the Mars I space shuttle, NASA receives a mysterious transmission from Adrian Palmer, the commander of the mission. Adrian's brother, Kevin, wastes no time funding the Mars II rescue mission commanded by Jake Palmer, Adrian's son. Jake and Dr. Steven "Skip" Hendricks, a NASA physicist, travel through a wormhole that Skip believes was the reason the Mars I crew disappeared. They eventually crash-land on the planet Terrest and are thrust into a war beyond their human limitations. The native Terrestrians are at war against a super-race of humans called the Gnols, led by Koroan Chast. However, the Terrestrian's struggle is futile because of the godlike abilities of the Gnols. Now, the only hope mankind has may rest on a 2000-year-old prophecy discovered in an ancient temple on Terrest. But before the prophecy can come to pass. Adrian and Jake must first stop the Gnols from attacking Earth and enslaving the human race.

    Awesome Book! Highly Recommended!

    Shaun Messick has redefined the science fiction genre. He wonderfully mixes LDS doctrine with science fiction into a page turner that I could not put down. I bought this book on a Monday and finished it the next day. I am surprised that this author hasn't been signed by a traditional publishing house yet. His writing style is fast paced and action packed. He left me hanging at the end of each chapter, so I had to keep reading. I highly recommend this book for readers of every age! Shaun Messick is my new favorite author and I can't wait for the next book to come out in the series.

    A clean fun read

    While the book is a little long winded, there is a lot of history and things to set up, the book was fun to read and every time I thought I knew the outcome of a situation, it would change for the better or worse. Long but fast.

    Bad

    I thought a teenager wrote this book. My 16-year-old grandson could do a much better job of writing. Get ready for a sermon if you decide to go ahead and plow through it. Other than the religion thrown in, it is so ridiculous. Come on, English spoken in a different galaxy? Give me a break.
