Prologue in search of a Space Opera

The Krrlll were an ancient race.

As old as the earliest of the Seyfert galaxies, the Krrlll, composed  as they were of pre-Nova light elements, had long ago abandoned MetaLight star travel in favour of Transdimensional Warpage.  During one of their many journeys, oscillating between times past and times future,  the Krrlll happened upon Man, and the shock almost destroyed them!

Mankind had discovered the Probably Drive and was soon exploding out of the Solar System at many times the Speed of Life.  Scouring the starlanes for something to conquer, something to kill, and armed with the most fearsome weapon ever invented - the Omniplasmicomegatron - the Terran fleet scythed its way through star systems, reducing whole planets to rubble.

Mankind appeared unstoppable, until that fateful day when the Star Cruiser “Moon of Orion” warped into RealSpace in orbit around Gamma Ceti IX.

Gamma Ceti IX, in the Procrastian Quadrant, from time immemorial the Thirteenth of the Prohibited Worlds, was the home of the Whhaaarrrrnnnn. A truly ancient race, the Whhaaarrrrnnnn had existed from before the dawn of  recorded history, and had long ago discarded corporeal form, mutating into life-forms of pure energy.  Their physical beings no more than a race memory, the Whhaaarrrrnnnn retained but one legacy of their animal past - the lust for blood!  Though tied to their world by  bonds forged beyond space and time, the Whhaaarrrrnnnn feared no race...other than one - the Quufffh!

Now, the Quufffh were REALLY old...

I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

eshankle16: I could not put this book down. I was drawn in by the characters and their story. I absolutely loved everything about the story. Even though the ending was predictable, I found myself ecstatic that Seven and Colin ended up together. I also loved the fact that this book wasn't full of cussing and ...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Roxie: This was a very well thought out story and I greatly enjoyed it! I don't usually go for these kinds of stories because of clichés and what not, nut this was great. There were a few typos and grammatical errors, but that is to be expected. While I knew the overall end of the story It was engaging ...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

PaulSenkel: A real page-turner. The main character takes getting used to which retrospectively is a good thing.
