Vacant Skies

by Derek Kontny

Keve Rivens is a Captain of an Akatora Navy Vessel. His job, although mundane for the most part, is to guard the star systems near the edge of human space. Since no alien species had ever been discovered, it is a mostly thankless and mind-numbing assignment. After a chance encounter with pirates however, he is forced to perform an unguided emergency jump. As he exits the jump with his ship barely intact, he crashes onto a world teeming with extraterrestrial life. Through his journey he must thread a fine line between his own exploration and the cultural contamination of a newly-discovered civilization.

On the other side of the galaxy, Orn Garrett, the corrupt chancellor of Sondar, starts to lose control of his government and the Bounty Hunter Syndicate is not happy with his recent failures.

NOTE: This is a Kindle SINGLE, not a full novel, and in the great tradition of Christmas through the ages, it’s overpriced for the holidays!
