For sixty years, the Alien Corps has searched for the Second Son of God.
When a native on the planet Prosperine is reported to be exorcising demons, curing blindness, and healing the sick, Hickory and her team are sent to investigate. If this “Teacher” proves to be the one in the prophecy, it will signal the beginning of the apocalypse.
But Hickory and her superiors aren’t the only ones interested in Prosperine. A sinister galactic force is planning to seize the planet’s reserves of crynidium, the key to faster than light travel. If they succeed, their next stop will be Earth and its colonies.
Hickory needs to stop the insurgents, discover what the Teacher is up to, and decide whether he is a fraud—or perhaps the very person the Alien Corps has been searching for.
Fans of Star Trek and Dune will love this action packed scifi fantasy.
Avanaux, book one of the Prosperine series, is also available in paperback.
