The Terran Chronicles Universe is a science fiction adventure series which begins in Earth's near future and spans far beyond.
The 'Initiation Series' encompasses the first five full size novels, five short stories, along with two journals.
Humanity discovers they are not alone in the Universe, and that space is perilous. However, things are not all they seem to be. Enemies become friends, while others prove to be dangerous beyond all measures of comprehension.
Welcome to the ‘Initiation Series’, the first series of the ‘Terran Chronicles Universe’.
Sharz is Prime of his vessel, and proud to belong to Regent Voknor’s clan. Their clan is one of many that make up the Gamin Empire, an empire that is losing a war with the Atlan Empire. Earth becomes an unwitting victim of this interstellar conflict! Survivors fearfully wait in underground shelters, where they hold little hope. Sharz volunteers to travel to Earth, to search for George's family.
Voknor Diaries follows the Gamin on their plight of survival, following the devastating attack on their world by the Atlan Empire. Many years after the Exodus, one Gamin hatches, one whose path crosses humanity’s time and again; first as a master, then as friend. Space is not safe, as all races painfully discover.
This is the forth short story belonging to the Terran Chronicles Universe. Events in this story take place during the latter part of book four, Alliance.
End of Times follows a number of key people, including Lisa and Johnny, as they attempt to survive the Atlan attack on Earth.
Alliance - One ship, against all odds.
Traveling twenty-two thousand light years from Earth, the crew of the Terran return to the site of the crippled Gamin spacecraft. During the salvage operation the crew intercepts a distress call from an old friend. Their subsequent decision precipitates a chain of events that will threaten humanity’s very existence.
This story takes place far in the future, long after the final voyage of the Terran is but a distant memory. It is during this time that Dianne catches her son, Benny, along with his friend Richard, in her study accessing her computer. She sates their curiosity by directing the boys to the ancient archives, and the fragments of Emma’s New Earth Ecology Journal.
In the novel Colony, we learn that Jie launches China’s first colony ship, fires nuclear weapons at the Terran, then vanishes into the cosmos. The Chinese government quickly proclaim that Jie stole the spacecraft. Jie’s plan to establish a colony on another world under his leadership is not quite as straight forward as he expects it to be.
Humanity’s first spacecraft, the Terran, returns home. The crew is stunned to discover that while their trek lasted for less than a year, three years has passed on Earth. Gamin technologies have begun making their way into everyday life for many countries. The crew of the Terran faces new challenges when they escort the coalition’s newest spacecraft, the colony ship Liberty, to New Earth.
This journal contains Joe’s notes of his discoveries and observations during the Terran’s maiden voyage of exploration to the stars. This journal is not a stand-alone story, but rather a supplementary guide for those that have an understanding of the Gamin and their involvement with Earth. While Joe’s journal answers many questions about these aliens and their technology, it also raises more.
Artemis One and her four man crew have returned to Pythos after a lengthy space mission. The men are stunned when they witness an apocalyptic space battle above their home world. Once the combatants leave, the crew apprehensively contacts ground control. The events following the Gamin occupation, and subsequent battle, have far reaching consequences, changing Pythos and its people forever.
In this second installment of the Terran Chronicles series, the ‘Terran’ is preparing for her maiden voyage. Humanity’s next frontier, the exploration of space, is tantalizingly close. The daring crew rapidly find themselves overwhelmed and ill prepared for the dangers that lie ahead. Discovery introduces some new characters, while at the same time bids farewell to others as the adventure unfolds.
The partially built alien spaceship is huge, tempting, and also off limits to nine year old Johnny. His father, George, is an important member of the team that are working hard to get the ship ready for launch. With everyone being busier than normal, Johnny is waiting for the day he can sneak aboard. Will he get aboard? If so what will he find?
The adventure you’re about to embark upon is one of discovery and hope, as humanity comes to terms with its ‘First Contact’. As the ‘Terran Chronicles’ saga unfolds it will challenge the way we look at alien races, eliminating some old clichés. When a fleet of spaceships arrives in orbit, it raises a number of compelling questions. What brings them here? Are they friendly? What will happen to us?
