The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, son of a Hyrathian Duke. Poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter, he’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
But when the Alliance denies Hyrath’s claim on the planet of Kavil and declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray. Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?
One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wasn’t sure I would write anything after my Cassa trilogy. But ten years prior, I’d listened to Ayreon’s song Dragon on the Sea and all I could picture was a Dragon spaceship. The storyline follows the lyrics, only with a space setting and a very unique twist.
How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
It’s more freeing. Anything can happen.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character of Aden was inspired by the main character in Ayreon’s song, Sir Francis Drake. What would a man be willing to do for his queen and country?
