RAF fighter pilot James Taylor is abducted by an alien craft as he flies his Typhoon over Scotland. He’s unaware that his uncle, Tristan who disappeared without trace many years ago, had been targeted by aliens and is now a Guardian, a member of a specially selected and highly trained police force with telepathic abilities.
As Tristan’s daughter hurtles towards Earth to find more people capable of becoming Guardians, on another planet an evil scheme to cleanse the galaxy of all synthetic life forms is gathering pace. James unwittingly becomes part of the plan, and is tasked with countering the threat of Guardian Artificial Intelligences.
Star Drive technology is in overdrive, space pirates are amassing, and a secret passed down through generations is revealed. But a time bomb is ticking – is there still time to bring peace to the galaxy?
