Reality: The Struggle for Sternessence

by Daniel A Liut


View All Available Formats & Editions


A very engaging, imaginative, and descriptive story that draws you into the action from the start. It has parallels to life and is an enjoyable read.

In this fast-moving, science fiction fantasy, an everyday kid of our Earth finds himself abruptly immersed in a conflict raging in an unsuspected alternative universe. His personal limitations, the pressure of war, his trial for love in an alien world, and the overwhelming new Reality, confront him with the very meaning of himself.

Accepting or rejecting a challenge set before him may not only determine his own destiny, but that of many more than he could foresee.
