Galen’s Way, the first of several planned releases this year, is now available for e-book pre-order on Amazon. It is my first space opera and is set in the amazing Starquest universe created by John C. Wright. While John’s stories are set in Starquest’s 12th Age, I’ll be hanging out in the 4th Age, with John’s permission of course, several thousand years earlier. And this series of 4th Age books will connect to two different pre-migration series – Ranger and The Hunters – that will be coming out later this year and in 2022.
I’m working with a new printer that offers both hardcover and paperback printing. The proofs for both are in the mail and if all goes well, I’ll be able to approve them for sale about the same time as the e-book edition releases on Feb. 23rd.
Check out the back cover blurb:
A KIDNAPPED PRINCESS.
A FEARED MERCENARY.
AN EVIL EMPIRE ABOUT TO BE BORN.
The Princess Rhiannon of Salacia has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom on the fortress planet Nammu. Galen Dwyn, the most feared mercenary in the Andromeda Galaxy has been hired to rescue her and bring her home.
He will soon find himself on the run with the Princess and right in the middle of a web of political intrigue even as he begins to fall for the Princess. For her love, he will stand alone against the forces looking to establish a new, and very evil, empire.
Galen will look to keep her safe and bring the budding empire to a halt before it can gain a foothold in the galaxy. He will choose to do so the only way he knows how.
Dragon Award finalist Richard Paolinelli takes us on a grand adventure in this space Opera offering set in the 4th age of Dragon Award winner John C. Wright’s Starquest universe.
