The Gate to Futures PastBook - 2017
Second novel in the hard sci-fi Reunification series, The Gate to Futures Past continues the Clan Chronicles, perfect for space opera readers looking for unique aliens and interstellar civilizations. Betrayed and attacked, the Clan fled the Trade Pact for Cersi, believing that world their long-lost home. With them went a lone alien, the Human named Jason Morgan, Chosen of their leader, Sira di Sarc. Tragically, their arrival upset the Balance between Cersi's three sentient species. And so the Clan, with their newfound kin, must flee again. Their starship, powered by the M'hir, follows a course set long ago, for Clan abilities came from an experiment their ancestors--the Hoveny--conducted on themselves. But it's a perilous journey because their dead are Calling. Sira must keep her people from answering, for if they do, they die. Morgan searches the ship for answers, afraid the Hoveny tech is beyond his grasp. Their only hope? To reach their destination. Little do Sira and Morgan realize their destination holds the gravest threat of all, for Brightfall is a world with a secret. Buried beneath its surface is the planet-spanning capital of the Hoveny Concentrix, quiescent and almost forgotten. A city waiting for the return of those sent to Cersei. A city ready to wake. Sira's willing, if that's the price of a future, but not everyone on Brightfall wants to reopen the past. For what lives in the M'hir has been waiting too. And what destroyed the Hoveny once is willing to do so again.
