The intergalactic war still raged…

…freedom seemed within our grasp.

We never thought our wars would disturb the gods.

When Grey went MIA, his son Roth had a choice to make. As an intelligence officer in the Ascendancy war machine, his duty was to the military. When his homeworld breaks all ties with the military after an insurrection, Roth’s relationship with his superiors is strained.

But then he meets Trin.

She claims to have known Grey.

Can he trust her?

Roth’s father is a man of mythic proportions. Finding him will be harder than he thought. There are some in the military who want Grey to stay lost. Others revere him as more than a man. Their stories will help Roth come to understand his father and himself.

But then Roth meets the godlike Om—Grey has committed a terrible sin.

Can Roth find Grey before it’s too late?

Sometimes family is worth all the risks
