About the Book:

Ben Gerrickson, a pilot with the diplomatic arm of the Earth Corps, saves a fellow crewmate’s life during the Kargin War by unwillingly unleashing a great power that had been simmering within him for years. Within days of being summoned to a hearing to explain his actions, he receives a tiny plant from Kaliph, the world he left when he was a boy – a world imbued with a powerful ambient energy. When he touches the plant, long-buried memories rush to the surface, and Ben begins to understand why he had been sent to Earth in the first place: someone had tried to kill him. When he returns to the planet of his birth to get some answers, he soon discovers the truth of who and what he really is. He also learns that he must use his wildly destructive power not just to protect himself, but to protect his people – the same people who want to see him dead.

Author's Note:

In this version, I actually added text. I think in my zeal to keep the word count to a certain number, I sacrificed some setting and character development text. I wanted to add more text regarding how Ben experiences and deals with all the changes he's going through. I hope I've accomplished that. As usual, any and all comments would be appreciated.
