A Space Opera
- “Stargate meets Lord of the Rings!”
A century ago a beneficent alien race, the Alfar, uplifted mankind to the stars and unwittingly seeded their doom. Humanity had just begun to ply the dark interstellar seas and were wholly unprepared for the malevolent forces they would awaken.
When Haldor Olsen unearths an ancient alien technology, the Hrymar slavers learn about mankind, a lucrative new source of slaves—the basis of their interstellar economy.
The slavers obliterate mankind’s first extra-solar colony, enslaving or killing all 10,000 colonists—including Haldor’s wife and son.
Haldor seems to be the only one taking this new threat seriously. With a small but well trained crew, he travels hundreds of light-years in a frantic race around the Galaxy to save mankind from total enslavement. In the process, he’s forced to make a deal with the devil to ward off the coming tide of destruction.
ABOUT THE SERIES:
The Tribes of Yggdrasil series begins just over a century in our future, but it’s a time you might not recognize. A century has been shaped by contact with mankind’s mythological past and the intervention of ancient alien races. It’s a time where starships ply the stars, where Alfar build great living-cities on their planets, and where the Dvergar dominate the local stellar-economy. It’s a time where mankind meets a great evil, the Hrymar, a twisted offshoot of the elves, and it’s a time where the old Viking Gods walk among the stars.
* Read the first three chapters of the sequel, Star Fury, included with this book. Available now on Amazon.
A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
So what is Star Wolves all about? In a nutshell, it starts out with humanity colonizing the stars, but their colonization efforts soon turn deadly as they encounter an evil, interstellar galactic-empire. Their exploration of local space causes the Hrymar to take notice of them as a new source of slaves, turning humanity’s space exploration into an advertisement for alien colonization and invasion. “Hey there! We’re new to space and ripe for the picking!”
This is not the first time this has happened. The same thing happened to the Britons who were left after the Roman Empire departed what is now England. The Britons bumped into the Anglo Saxons and invited them to help beat off the foul Picts to the North. Soon the Anglo Saxons were running the place.
In addition to being passionate about Science Fiction, Space Opera in particular, (Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate etc.), I’m also passionate about Norse Mythology. Star Wolves is my attempt at blending those genres. It’s equal parts Military Science Fiction and Space Opera, with some Norse Mythology DNA. If you enjoyed any of the Star Wars movies and the Thor movies (Thor, Thor: The dark world), then you’ll LOVE The Tribes of Yggdrasil series.
In addition to star spanning galactic empires, human colonization and some fast paced space fleet action, there’s also an overarching thread to do with an ancient evil crusade—I can’t say too much about that! You’ll read more about that as the series progresses.
I don’t try to make my books all things to all people, but you’ve got to have a good love story in any book, right? I mean, that’s human nature. Of course I have one here. No, this isn’t Science Fiction Romance, but there’s a character arc about a man and his family, and his love for them. My goal is to make this series as complete as possible. Life isn’t just about shoot-em up gunfights, or space exploration, or alien invasions, or even a love connection. A good story should resonate with the reader on many levels. I hope I nailed it.
