A SCIENCE FICTION ADVENTURE WITH A SUPERNATURAL TWIST
Sacked from the Alien Corps after her disastrous first mission, the empath Hickory Lace is desperate for another chance to prove herself. The opportunity arrives when Hickory is assigned to the planet Prosperine to investigate a plot by political extremists to destabilize the planet's government and report on the activities of an alien radical called "the Teacher."
Continued harmony on Prosperine is vital to the future of the Galactic Alliance. The planet contains a rare metallic element essential for interstellar travel. Without access to this, the Alliance's plans for a galaxy-wide trade and defense network will fail.
The fate of the Alliance hangs in the balance. Hickory must stop a war. But to do that, she needs to banish the pain from her past and reconnect with the powerful empathic abilities she was born with. Only then can she discover what the Teacher is up to, and decide whether he is a fraud—or perhaps the very person the Corps was created to find.

"A Great read. Had me at the first chapter. I didn't want to stop reading. Loved the plot, the storyline, the action!!""A fun read, perfect for the backyard hammock or a comfortable beach chair while on holiday.""McDermott creates a very original and hopeful future world similar to the kind of sci-fi I grew up loving. His alien characters are delightful and believable. I couldn't wait to read the second book, Rise of the Erlachi, which is even better!""If you crossed The Expanse with Avatar and something Dan Brown wrote, you might come up with something close to the premise."

Strangers at war.
Fascinating read between two civilizations light years apart in technology and civilization. A most interesting lead to a series that I’m looking forward to reading.
