About the Book
Chronicles of the Cosmic Void: The Reluctant Traveler begins with the abduction of a party of Roman soldiers by belligerent alien beings. Centuries later, the US Air Force, after noticing a pattern of mysterious abductions and the detection of an anomalous signal deep within our solar system, launches a program of deep space exploration to uncover a horrifying truth that we are not alone in this universe and are far from being the dominant species. Recruited by the US Air Force and persuaded to join the covert top secret program, a romantic couple of young scientists- Doctor Ryan Williams and Doctor Rebecca Lang, learn that they are part of a crew that might be humanity’s last hope of survival when they discover two warring alien races: one, a benevolent species, and the other, hostile to the human race intent on its subjugation and destruction! Written to inspire interest in science fiction and astronomy, the book is an adventurous tale of hope, compassion and camaraderie dedicated to the premise that no matter where you are in life or what challenges life might bring, it’s love that gives us the strength to tolerate and overcome all obstacles, however insurmountable they might seem.
