Operation Lumi'nor

By Michael Juschke

Action & adventure, Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


"Laura fired two quick bursts from her handgun. The alien critter collapsed in a heap on the floor, all eight legs and two arms sprawled to the side. She jumped to her feet and threw herself at the pilot's seat. A red light began to flash, and a noisy alarm indicated a target lock on the ship. The enemy frigate fired as Laura hit the hyperspace jump initiator button." Two galactic powers. A centuries-old war. Earth in the firing line. Exhausted from the last major battle decades ago, an undeclared truce is holding between the Galactic Freedom Federation and the Protectorate of Independent Star Systems. But suddenly the power balance has shifted. A group deep within the NSA has secretly activated an ancient space transport network, and made contact with the Federation. Realizing that the ancient network spans across both Federation and Protectorate territories, the Federation quickly allies itself with the NSA operatives. For the Protectorate there is now only one choice: Find and destroy Earth before they can help the Federation launch attacks via the ancient network. So far the NSA has managed to keep Earth's location secret, but it won't last. They will have to come up with a plan to neutralize the growing Protectorate threat, while trying to keep their activities hidden from the rest of the world and even from their own president. As the NSA's plan is nearing completion, Laura Hunter and her conspiracy buff friends stumble into their clutches while investigating the disappearance of a friend. Given little choice but to enlist, they join the pre-emptive strike on Lumi'nor, the capital planet of the Protectorate. But things don't go to plan.
