A hero disappears only to return a year later with a fantastical story of alien abduction and a mission to save this alien race by traveling through the stars. More
The day Jack Folsom became a hero he disappeared. After relentless searching he is pronounced dead and given a standing room only funeral.
One year later Jack reappears to his shocked family and friends, but the surprises are only beginning. He reveals that he had been kidnapped by the Muxai, a dying alien race who recruited him to go to the far reaches of the galaxy. They need him to assemble a cure for a disease that threatens to bring them to extinction. Jack gathers his crew and begins on the ultimate mission: an adventure few would dream of. But will saving the Muxai be an act of mercy or one of the most dangerous actions in human, or alien history? Jack will have to decide whether to trust an alien race he once thought to be terrorists, or the people who taught him everything, opening his eyes to a life he never dreamed possible, and worlds he never knew existed. Along the way, the crew begins to discover that Jack is not completely as he seems, and they are not sure if they should trust him...or fear him.
