The Golden Queen, Book 1
When GallenO'Day is hired as a bodyguard to escort a young woman through the woods to the forbidden ruins at Geata Na Chruinn, it seems like an ordinary job-but all too soon, he finds himself fleeing for his life from creatures that seem like escapees from a nightmare-the alien dronon, led by their golden queen. With his best friend, a genetically engineered talking bear named Orick, and his girlfriend Maggie, Gallen soon finds himself tangled in an interstellar war that he never knew existed, racing across a host of worlds, confronted by a future unlike any that he had ever imagined.

I cannot believe this series or (book) has not been reviewed! It is an excellent fun adventure, that engages you from the first page. Its a rip roaring go get the bad guys si fi style. If you like a character driven book as I do this book is for you. If you are in the mood for a complex involved read this is not it .The book is just for fun or a break from real life.
Well written and a great adventure.
I enjoyed this almost-800-page sci fi adventure. Starts out in a slightly warped version of Ireland then quickly moves to outer space/sci fi territory. Well written, likeable characters, page turning adventure.
