The year is 3335. Earth is expanding its sphere of influence and reaching for resources out-system. Trade with alien worlds has become commonplace, and so has conflict in interstellar space. The ancient, wicked Brakikeen-jhennen, a species of prideful, xenophobic, warlike creatures, are expanding their sphere as well. Both are moving into the so-called Fertile Arc of the Orion Arm of the Milky Way. 19-year-old Erin Broctrup is contemplating joining the Earth's Space Exploration and Expansion Fleet and being flown out into deep space for the experience of a lifetime. At the same time, daring and zealous yuvynn warriors are enlisting to take part in an alliance with Earth for reasons that are unclear to most humans. Constantly changing vantage points provide a wild ride and a thrilling view of future Earth. Metropolises that cover North America's continental shelves, body-implanted wetware, faster-than-light travel, and contact with alien lifeforms have caused a sea-change in Earth culture and the average human's thoughts about life, religion, and even ancient history. An Invisible Thread is a chronicle of a critical period in Earth's future history powered by Byzantine political machinations, visions of violent combat on exotic worlds, and contact with bizarre, alien lifeforms. The compelling stories of vulnerable, flawed, heroic and tragic characters are related through an adventure both intimate in its perspective and galactic in its overall scope. Lives will be lost, bodies shattered, and psyches indelibly altered in the struggle for dominance out on the border. As corporate entities and world-spanning governments strain to take by force what they presume they can obtain, the lives of common citizens are swept up in the programs, policies and politics of interstellar expansion.
