Earth was destroyed in 2790. The cause: an alien aggressor called Daegrans. In an attempt to thwart any further attacks, humanity’s Interplanetary Military Force sends one ship to destroy the Daegran homeworld. When they arrive, the planet is abandoned. With orders from the Sol system, The Interplanetary Military Force (IMF) travels deeper into the Orion Spur of the Milky Way Galaxy. After hundreds of light years and over twelve generations the IMF has wondered and journeyed across the stars. On their way home they harvest the natural resources of planets they find in order to fuel their ship and survive.
One man, IMF soldier Tech Sergeant Grant Harlin, lives the life of any ordinary mopper. During a routine recon mission, and with the help of his team, Harlin discovers a truth that challenges humanity's knowledge of its origins. When the mission goes wrong, Sergeant Harlin is separated from his team by forces beyond his control. He quickly learns of a threat to not just the IMF but all of humanity, and is thrust into the center of a conflict between humanity and its long lost enemies. With the help of an unusual alley, Sergeant Harlin attempts to convince his people that Humanity must overcome their inherited colonialism and self-centered superiority if they hope to survive the war.
About the Author
Born and raised in Idaho, I constantly had access to the outdoors; hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, skiing, and summer water sports. After high school, I spent two years in Korea teaching English and proselytizing for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was exposed to an entirely different culture and learned the virtues of knowing the way others think. Shortly after returning from Korea, I enrolled in college in Hawaii on the island of O'ahu, and soon became exposed to more cultures from the pacific islands. College education focusing on English, Creative Writing, and Theatre gave me opportunities to dive into literature and enjoy the depth of writing and its potential. Hawaii became my first love and the one place where I always wanted to return to, should I find myself away. In Hawaii, I met my wife, and we were married in Kona. We lived and taught in Hawaii for two years, before moving to the mainland to escape high rent prices. We are now pursing more school and continuing to write and create new stories and worlds to put them in.
