Book Synopsis

Follow Thomas Ryder’s epic adventure across five centuries and seven worlds from medieval England to the final frontier of divine consciousness.
1499 A.D. Thomas Ryder is a medieval gamekeeper with a lot on his mind. Where does he belong in the natural world? What does it mean to be human? What hope for a peace beyond life’s storms? When will the aliens make their final move?
Abducted from Alice Holt Forest, along with his fiancée, Sarra Chambers, he is taken to the planet of Heyre and trained by superior beings to be their Great King in their final stand against an encroaching, undefeated destroyer of worlds.
Aided by magic-like hyper-technologies, his knowledge grows beyond his wildest dreams, yet the lasting peace he thought would come from a deeper understanding of human nature becomes a disturbing, perception-distorted, mirage under the seductive onslaught of artificial intelligence, bio-machine integration, genetic engineering, and virtual reality.
Inferior to all around him, he is feted as a saviour king by deed of his mysterious connection to a supernatural creature whose background influence points to a far greater, more ancient war.
Can Thomas Ryder survive the Great War for the galaxy and wake up to his true nature before it’s too late to fulfill his true destiny in an apocalyptic battle between the gods for the Light of the universe?
