Synopsis

For ten thousand years, the people of the habitats have lived in fear of Adversary, the focus of evil in the solar system. One family, however, has grown to doubt the truth of the old tales.

About the author

S.A. Barton

You can find out a LOT about me on Twitter @Tao23, or by checking out my personal site at sabarton (dot) com. Here's an excerpt from the 'About Me' section there that tells you a bit about why I write : "...So I (gulp) quit my job, which was very physical and draining, which made it very difficult to write and also was slowly destroying my body (I have degenerative osteoarthritis in one hip, advanced enough and eroded enough by my former work that I now routinely use a cane as I go about my daily business). My wife and I enrolled in university (she at the undergraduate level, and I at the graduate level). And I started to write as much as possible. We are in a race against time. I am writing as much as possible, hoping that I can write enough and well enough to convince so many of you to buy my books that by the time we graduate I can afford to write full time, pay back student loans, and support my family. If you’d like to help me, you can buy some of my books. I surely do appreciate it. If you can’t afford to buy any books, read some of the free ones. It does help, because it bumps them up the ranks and makes all of my work easier for others to find. Especially if you review them, or simply tell a fellow reader that you liked them. In any event: thank you for reading. Without you, I have no hope. —S.A. Barton"
