A science fiction adventure with a supernatural twist
The Alien Corps was created to search the galaxy for a new Messiah after an ancient manuscript prophesied He would appear on other planets.*
The Intragalactic Agency has requested the Corps’ help to negotiate mining rights on the medieval planet, Prosperine. They believe their skills and experience in dealing with aliens will be invaluable.
The Corps agrees to send their operative, Hickory Lace, on one condition: Hickory be permitted to interview an indigenous miracle worker on the planet who is of interest to them.
When she arrives on Prosperine, Hickory discovers a planet, high in radiation, with many dangerous life forms, and on the brink of revolution. Before she can form an opinion on the miracle worker, Hickory comes across a plot by rebel forces to unseat the government, then learns that a sinister galactic foe is working with the rebels, seeking to take advantage of the chaos.
Hickory is assigned to infiltrate the enemy and spy out their strength and plans for war. The task takes her on a journey into the most inhospitable parts of the planet where she finds the enemy encampment and faces torture and death.
Hickory has one shot. She must rediscover the powerful empathic gift she was born with. Only then does she have a chance to stop the aliens, find out what the Teacher is up to, and decide whether he is a fraud—or perhaps the very person the Corps was created to find.

“A Great read. Had me at the first chapter. Did not want to stop. Love the plot, the story line, the action!!”
“A fun read, perfect for the backyard hammock or a comfortable beach chair while on holiday.”
“McDermott creates a very original and hopeful future world similar to the kind of sci-fi I grew up loving. His alien characters are delightful and believable. I couldn’t wait to read the second book, Rise of the Erlachi, which is even better!”
