WARSEC Interstellar Series: Book 1

WARSEC 1: Regulation (2094-2095)

2094. The successful testing of the Alcubierre metric makes faster-than-light travel possible. For Michael Vahlroos, CEO of V-Space, this is the start of a new era. Not only will his company be able to sell new spaceships, but it will also spearhead the exploitation of extraterrestrial resources, a must to ensure welfare to our overpopulated earth. Private corporations are the right players to boldly do what no-one has done before. For UN diplomat Ralf Åhman, however, the added value of private corporations in space is overrated. Has not the failure of the Martian colony been caused by a greedy entrepreneur, leaving the last Martian survivor on her own? Space has to be better regulated. REGULATION (2094-2095) is the first book of the WARSEC series, a race to the stars between private corporations and the United Nations organization. It is a grounded space saga for readers interested in geopolitics, science, and the future of mankind.

Godfrey finds himself deep inside the city of Volusia and deep in trouble as his plan goes from bad to worse. Imprisoned, set to be executed, finally, even he can see no way out. Volusia forges a pact with the darkest of sorcerers, and driven to even greater heights, she continues her ascent, conquering all who stand in her way. More powerful than ever, she will take her war all the way to the steps of the Empire Capital—until she is up against the entire Empire army, an army that dwarfs even her own, setting the stage for an epic battle.

Will Darius lead his people to victory?
