Second Star: Breaking Through is a novella, around 25,000 words (just over 100 pages) and is the first in a planned series of five books that I plan to release as they are finished. Sixty-six days is all pilot John McNeal has left on his service contract, after that his combat days will be over for good -- if he survives that long. After a mysterious rift in the fabric of spacetime strands him on an alien world, John must join forces with some unlikely childhood heroes to have any chance of surviving and soon discovers that this strange new world isn’t that alien after all. Someone has been here before and found a way back to tell about it. There is hope, but this is not the fairy tale he knows and John will have to fight if he wants to get home.
