A power that both sides will do anything to harness.

Outnumbered ten to one and stalked by a mysterious nemesis, he will need the help of people willing to make unspeakable sacrifices to unravel Angelhaven’s secret.As the Legion invasion begins, unknown eyes watch with interest..."

Author Bio:
By day, I’m a creative/editor/promo producer for Turner Broadcasting in London making promos for Cartoon Network across europe… By night, I travel to the farthest reaches of the universe, imagining exploding asteroid colonies and alien civilisations and dreaming of how to share these adventures with like-minded people. Which is a rather pretentious way of saying ‘aspiring novelist’. I’m not doing this for money, only love of hard SF and space opera. I’m greatly influenced by the amazing works of Peter F Hamilton, Arthur C Clarke, Greg Bear, Stephen Baxter, Yukinobu Hoshino and many, many others I can’t remember right now. I think I’d describe my writing style as fast-paced, gritty and fairly action-packed. Having said that, I love to delve into the big questions of the universe, religion and mind (though I’m certainly no physicist), question what it is to be human, and hopefully, just tell a really riveting story against an epic canvas. I’ll let my readers (whoever you may be!) judge whether I’ve succeeded! I’ve just finished editing my first novel and long-term labour of love, an epic science fiction novel called ‘Particle Horizon’. We follow the stories of an ensemble of characters from different sides and perspectives of a galactic conflict as their adventures intertwine. The galactic Rubicon has been crossed…

Congratulations on your April 8th launch. I'm checking you out on Amazon and see your book is selling already. Good job.

I love a good shoot-em-up military science fiction novel. Military science fiction has become a bit of an underappreciated niche market that begs to be filled by new authors such as yourself.
