This book is a continuation of my SpaceFed series. An exciting technological and action packed Sci-fi thriller, with assassins, space drama, and loads of intrigue. In my last book, Death of Time. Axon, who was part Crillon and part Human, had come from the distant future to the year, 2033. He had always felt more Crillon than human and was hell bent on stopping the Acarea Project, in an attempt to save his own species in the future. His brother Micky, having always believed that he was human, discovered what Axon was trying to do and followed him back later. Micky was on a mission to prevent Axon from wrecking the project. And, to ensure that the settler Starship was launched on the correct date. Micky appears to have succeeded. But has he set in motion a series of events that will destroy Acarea’s chances of success, and irrevocably change the future by disrupting the birth of the Space Federation, and the coming Galactic Empire. Now, fifty-two years later. The descendants of Micky and Charlie’s children struggle to survive in a world that is falling into chaos. Their aim is to fulfil the promises their ancestors made, in making sure that some of them join the Starship Acarea. The ship is scheduled to be launched within fourteen years and will take humanity on its first grand adventure to the Stars. Its aim, to seek out a planet fit for colonisation. But there is a network of men and women, who earn vast sums of money by rubbing out other people, just to keep, influential individuals in power. This network of killers belongs to an Assassination Guild. The guild is so uncontrollable that it not only threatens the setting up of the Earth Federation but also the very existence of the Acarea Project. Thousands of people, all desperate to leave Earth and all its chaos behind, try to book their place on the Acarea. The tragedies and deceit that unfold jeopardise the Starship’s 'official launch' on April the 7th, 2109. Will Micky’s attempt to change the launch date succeed? Even if it does and the Acarea manages to start her voyage. Will she fall apart under the strain as her engine’s nuclear-charges detonate behind her, violently pushing her forward? Let alone, the uncertainty of actually reaching the star system, whose position will be changing all the time that the Acarea travels towards it. Will attempts at sabotage, and other unforeseen twists and turns, make the Acarea’s quest for the Stars more dangerous than its crew could ever have imagined? Is it all too much of a gamble for the human race? If the project fails, then, will this mean the end of their deep space exploration programme? Something is monitoring the Acarea’s attempt to launch. Something dangerous, something that doesn’t want to be seen. Is ‘Death’ stalking the Acarea?
