Book 1 in the Scions of the Aegean C series
More than a century after an entire colony of people crashed in an unknown world, both the written knowledge of the survivors and fragments of the ship they dismantled in their efforts to stay alive are decaying. As eyewitness accounts of the "Firstlanders" pass from living memory, alternate versions of the colony's history are taking shape.
Members of the fifth generation, Shaye, Jariel, and Ty prepare to take their places as young adults in a growing civilization where each person's quality of life is determined by proof of bloodline, valuable skills . . . or possession of strategic secrets. For someone without one of these, an obscure existence of menial labor is certain, and love is an unattainable luxury. Will the wisdom, liberty, and faith that the Firstlanders brought to this world pass into legend, or will they find a foothold in the fifth generation?
For readers 16 and up, the Scions of the Aegean C series is an epic narrative of love, choices, and God's ability to redeem. The lives of the characters allow readers to see how the choices we make impact our lives. The books can be used to start deeper conversations about forging true friendships, purity, the cost of sex outside of marriage, and personal growth in a community of faith. These novels will be enjoyed by readers who relish complex characters in richly-textured cultural settings. Christian Fiction/Science Fiction/Steampunk
