Following reports that an alien is performing miracles on the planet Prosperine, Commander Hickory Lace and her cohorts, Jess and Gareth, are sent to investigate.
It won’t be an easy mission. Prosperine seethes with humanoid lifeforms, predatory beasts, carnivorous plants and deadly radiation. To make matters worse, when they arrive at the capital Hickory stumbles across a plot by Earth's most deadly foe—the warlike Bikashi empire—to hijack the planet’s resources of liquid metal that enables FTL travel. Strangest of all, though, is her encounter with the alien miracle worker who seems to know everything about her.
In this epic adventure novel, the future of the Earth and its allies is at stake. Hickory has one chance to prevent disaster. She must reignite the powerful empathic gift she was born with, and at the same time determine exactly who or what the miracle worker represents.

What Amazon readers are saying about this scifi action adventure.
“A Great read. Had me at the first chapter. I did not want to stop reading. Loved the plot, the storyline, the action!!”“Great character development. I was really attracted to the main character. The blend of adventure and inter-galactic political mischief was a new way of looking at things. Great fun.”
“McDermott creates a very original and hopeful future world similar to the kind of sci-fi I grew up loving. His alien characters are delightful and believable. I couldn't wait to read the second book, Rise of the Erlachi, which is even better!”
