On the 12th anniversary of his mother's disappearance, Zahn makes his annual trip up to an island summit — only to be awoken by a brilliant object thundering down from the sky, setting off a chain of events that takes him face to face with a living starship and its cryptic pilot.
For the first time, Zahn has the chance to learn the fate of his mother, but to do that, he must go to the galactic core where he encounters the Vakragha, a species bent on consuming entire stars. To Zahn's horror, he learns that they're heading toward his homeworld. Only the Tulari stone, which has been missing for aeons, can stop their all-consuming wormholes.
But saving his world from armageddon isn't all he has to worry about. Just when Zahn lands on a moon stolen by the Vakragha, he makes a breakthrough, finally learning his mother's true fate. Now he is faced with a heartbreaking decision that could either save his world or doom it forever.
Action-packed, with a scope as ambitious as Star Wars, THE TRUTH BEYOND THE SKY will leave you energized and hungry for more.
Praise for The Truth Beyond the Sky:
“Definitely an amazing adventure for all. The descriptive scenes captivate the imagination and one truly feels a part of the story. 5-stars!” --AudiobookReviewer.com
“A swift & compelling read. It's fun and I recommend it if you enjoy science fiction epics.” --Michael Coorlim, Author of the classic steampunk series Galvanic Century
“Readers of the Law of One books may find familiar the philosophical thread woven throughout. In my view, that makes this book a rare gem in the genre. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the underlying philosophy of the book, the mythos, shares much in common with the best of metaphysical literature.” --Thomas Minderle, Author of Fringe Knowledge for Beginners
“It was tough to look away. What's really interesting about this book is how multi-layered it is. Zahn's story manages to pull from the world around us, while also incorporating elements of mythology and hero epics. This is a coming of age story of the highest caliber.” --Jessica Nottingham, Founder of HopelessBibliophile.com
“I was immediately drawn in by the vivid descriptions at the beginning of the story. The author has a knack for fully immersing a reader into the hero's plight, and I felt like I was hurtling through corridors of light alongside Zahn.” --Erica Lane, Founder of FantasyBookLane.com
