Humanity has fallen from its once majestic place amongst the stars. Desperate for resources to prop up an aging galactic dynasty, humans seize every planet they find, exterminating their alien inhabitants.
Across the empire, a group of dissidents come together through happenstance. As they learn more, however, they sense a strange force directing their lives. Can they discover the truth before the empire destroys them?
Dispatched to subdue an uprising, a government operative unearths an ancient relic. It somehow knows everything about him, even his darkest secrets. The strange device promises extraordinary power, but can he trust it?
The first book in a four part saga, Breakers of the Dawn is epic science fiction, featuring a diverse cast of characters. It’s easy to read, but hard to put down. If you enjoy Dune, The Expanse, or Ender’s Game, you’ll love the Dawn Saga!

"The writing, originality, complexity and imagination it took to create this story displays talent. Very entertaining, very enjoyable. Recommended." - Ron Baker, via Amazon
"This series has the potential to be a huge hit. The plot is simple, yet complex and has all of the right points. The characters are also complex, some flawed, some questioning why there are there, others are just insecure and doubtful. The writing is tight and descriptive, yet each character has a distinct voice which is not very easy to do." - Robert Rozell, via Amazon
"Superb story and series kickoff. There’s a large cast, yet each is fully developed with back story, motivations and purpose. Exceptional ambitious, the story meets this challenge and succeeds brilliantly!" - Mike Higgins, via Amazon
