Editorial Review:
"The characters are exciting, and full of color and the story consumes your soul and imagination." - Bookreview buz

Synopsis:
The discovery of a new world may be the very thing that threatens the freedom of the human race and changes the destiny of mankind forever.

Twenty-three years after the disappearance of the Mars I space shuttle, NASA receives a mysterious transmission from Adrian Palmer, the commander of the mission. Adrian's brother, Kevin, wastes no time funding the Mars II rescue mission, commanded by Jake Palmer, Adrian's son.

Jake and Dr. Steven "Skip" Hendricks, a NASA physicist, travel through a wormhole that Skip believes was the reason the Mars I crew disappeared. They eventually crash-land on the planet Terrest and are thrust into a dangerous conflict. The native Terrestrians are at war against a super-race of humans called the Gnols, led by Koroan Chast. The Terrestrian's struggle is futile because of the godlike abilities of the Gnols.

Now, the only hope mankind has may rest on a 2000-year-old prophecy discovered in an ancient temple on Terrest. But before the prophecy can come to pass, Adrian and Jake must first stop the Gnols from attacking Earth and enslaving the human race.
Worlds Without End Series . . . The saga of the chosen one. A story that stretches across the galaxy in search of the key that will unleash mankind's destiny or total annihilation.

From the Author:

Worlds Without End: The Mission is the first book of a 4 book series that I am in the process of writing. I am currently writing the third book, The Prophecy, due for release on Christmas of 2013.

The original idea for this series came to me while I was traveling back-and-forth from my home in Shelley, Idaho to Salt Lake City, Utah in the Fall of 2003. It was as this time, that my oldest daughter was being treated for Leukemia. I owe much of my inspiration to my daughter for her courage and resiliency during this trying time for our family. Today, my daughter is in complete remission and has a clean bill of health.

As I have been writing the Worlds Without End series, I have received many positive reviews about the first book in the series, as well as many questions as to when the second book will be completed. My intent with the series is to open the mind to the possibilities of our Heavenly Father's creations in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is a fictional saga that not only explores the possible destiny of our planet but other planets within our galaxy as well.

I hope you enjoy reading the Worlds Without End series.
