Short Summary

In hours, Earth faces decimation, and the only escape is outer space. The hero finds a device that could help those escaping Earth A ruthless corporate madman with a covertly created army attempts to gain power. Taft, the girl he loves and their friends fight to defend humanity from evil.


Using a cloaking device, the hero's of the story launch an assault in their flying machines on the base of operations of DeCorp and our villain on Mars. The villain seeks to destroy a convoy in space of Earth evacuees who refused to join him. Our hero's in an epic battle stop his murderous plan.

Development Pitch

The story was written to be a straight forward good vs evil tale, with relatable technology and the action in the style of Star Wars. The book is filled with 90's and early 2000's pop culture references laced into the characters backgrounds. Conceived as The Fast and Furious, meets Star Wars, with a love story akin to late 80's early 90's movies like Say Anything, Heathers, Singles and Reality Bites. This first story is designed as the set up for the further adventures of our hero's and villian as they move to find life far from a now uninhabitable Earth. Like The Fast and Furious, our heros over their development, start off as average teen, and early twenty something and grow to become a resistance against a growing empire.
