In this second installment of Touch the Stars, Jason Roanhorse continues his fight against the sinister Hamilton Club, but things become far more complicated when a three foot alien, named Vormin Kark, enters the picture bearing gifts for the bad guys.
Roanhorse scientists explore the frontiers of the technology which gave humanity the stars. But their incredible discoveries of super-science are nothing compared to the tricks held by this alien from Helifos.
Vormin Kark may have a tiny body, but his evil is measured in hundreds of light years. After enslaving numerous worlds, he turns his gaze toward Earth and finds the Hamilton Club a willing ally.
Jason Roanhorse finds his son, Gordon, to be a talented leader. Gordon is not just any rich man's son. He develops the skills to solve tough problems on an interstellar scale—skills he will need when finally he confronts Kark in a war that covers this entire region of the Milky Way galaxy.
