Major Sandra Jordan believes her mission as one of peace, to save the "birth world" from itself. But when she witnesses a supervisor slaughtering innocent civilians, she begins a perilous journey to reveal the truth. Joining her are a veteran Earth soldier, a jaded assassin, and a young girl with strange abilities. This ragtag group becomes the spark for a revolution.
The inspiration for this was the third generation of Robotech, aka Mospaeda, though there are no cool transforming motorcycles. Besides Robotech, I realized at one point there's kind of a Wizard of Oz thing going on, with four people undertaking the same journey but each with some different need.
It's another of those that could have been a series if I'd gotten around to it. To this point I haven't and I doubt I will in the future. I mean it'd be hard to restart a series after five years or so. That's why books written 20-25 years after the previous one are usually shit. It's hard to get back into that same groove again. Anyway, Sandra and her ragtag team probably would have defeated the Martians eventually, or at least fought them to a draw, at which point the Martians would probably decide it was in their best interests to leave. Or maybe the Martians would have used a "surge" to crush the rebellion for the most part and then withdrawn most of their forces a few years later. There are a lot of options.
This and the rest of my books are available at the new Planet 99 Publishing site!
