From space they came to space they returned. Humanity would not be denied.Reviewers had this to say:"Old-fashioned space opera. Good guys, bad guys and only a bit of romance to add to the characters.""This is a great "start point" for people who do not read the original books. Taken from the start of your MC coming into Boot Camp and flowing through all the fun and team-building games played there. This will help others to see the characters in their strengths and weaknesses as individuals. I enjoyed that the other characters had a chance to shine too.""Readability... very smooth with good transitions from scene to scene. Build-up was gradual and the philosophy of the parent planet's drive to explore seemed very natural. Failures were also points of learning for the society and the blending of the different cross-species into a cohesive group seemed a natural progression of development.""It has all of the elements a good story should have. The characters are well developed, the plot line is smooth and progresses consistently and logically. The action is fast paced and the interpersonal relationships believable. Conflict, fear, and the rest of the human emotions are represented."The people of the Cygnus system were determined to find other life, maybe even return to earth. With the company of the intelligent species humans created centuries past, who evolved and became equals, partners in the journey to a better place.They were all the people of Cygnus VII.From the ashes of their past, Cygnus was rising.Cygnus Rising is the first book in a Space Opera series based within the Free Trader universe.
