Less than 1 week til you are introduced to Douglas Harley, Michelle Harley, Maal Khalin, Arias Cardinale, Emissary Khalin, Madetheira Shathaal, Vicon Raveneau, Querilla Opaaca, Zax Carthage, Livvie Austen, and more...
They all make their first appearance in the forthcoming novel, Odyssey Star: Into the Unknown. The true start to this saga. There may be stories written to be set before this one. But this is the first of a newer version of previous story ideas that I have from older manuscripts and written ideas. It is very likely that similar stories to ones written before show up but in different ways and how they affect the characters now than they had before.

A YOUNG REDHEADED MAN walks through a thick brush in a forest on a distant planet. In his hand he carries a pistol. He is wearing a dark blue uniform with gold trim. His shoulder length locks are pulled back into a ponytail.
“Alright, Macon, where are you?” He mutters to himself.
“Harley, shut up.” The young man hears in his ear. “I ain’t that far away. Just head straight about a couple hundred meters. You should come to a clearing where the shuttle it.”
“Gotcha, Macon.” Harley responds. Then, he hears a growling sound nearby. The brush shakes as well. Harley stops in his tracks and listens intently.
Something’s not right here. Harley wonders. His teke powers sense a big powerful creature nearby. Stay calm, my big friend.
The creature rises to its feet. Harley looks up at the large reptilian creature with a long neck. The scales shimmer as light strikes it. Harley gulps as he slowly backs up.
The creature lowers its head towards Harley. He stands very still. He takes a deep breath. The creature’s bulging red eyes stare at Harley. There is a single horn on its long snout. Three horns emerge from the back of the creature’s head.
“Harley, time is short.” Macon says through the ear piece. “You need to get your ass moving.”
“I have a situation here.” Harley mutters through gritted teeth.
“Turn your camera on the glasses on.” Macon says.
Harley taps a button on the right side of the frames. A display pulls up on the glasses. “You seeing this thing, Macon?”
“Yeah, kid, I see it.” Harley hears. “Hold your position. Do not alarm the dragor. I am on my way.”
“Dragor?” Harley mutters. He lowers his pistol slowly and holsters it. He spreads out his arms.
The dragor crooks its head. It studies Harley. Then, it snorts. Air blows past Harley. Mucus follows the initial snort. It covers Harley’s face and torso. Harley turns and removes the mucus covering him.
“Ugh.” Harley says as he shakes mucus from his hands onto the ground. Then, he hears the roar of the shuttle above him.
The dragor’s eyes open wide. He roars and raises his head towards the shuttle. Anger comes from the dragor.
“Macon, get out of here!” Harley shouts as an energy begins to form inside the dragor’s mouth.
To be continued in ODYSSEY STAR: INTO THE UNKNOWN, published by Galaxia Press, out April 20, 2018!
I still have the April 20, 2018 date for publishing a book.
However, the original book in that slot for METAVERSE, Order of the Blue Moon: A Moontripper Novel, has been pushed back to the June slot. This pushes back all the other METAVERSE books too by 2 months. In its spot, Odyssey Star: Into the Unknown will be published by Galaxia Press and Rising Dragons Publishing.
Odyssey Star: Into the Unknown is on the way to being finished. I am 14 chapters into the story. I feel it being near the conclusion within the month of March, it will be done.
The plan for ODYSSEY STAR is to write standalone stories and trilogies. These stories will make the overall narrative of the series. Not sure how the saga will be setup timeline wise but they will all fit together somehow.
Already 3 books are set in the series based off three separate main characters: Douglas Harley, Starragaar, and Fiona Harley. The three books are also set in three different time periods decades apart.
The three books in progress are:
I am working hard on these books for Galaxia Press / Rising Dragons Publishing along with other projects. I have many tales in the works. Now to get them out.
INTO THE UNKNOWN is scheduled for release this September.
The UNTITLED FIONA HARLEY BOOK now has a title. It will be called SENTINEL PRINCESS. Not sure when it or STAR SAMURAI will be published. Likely to come out in 2019. But we will see how things go.
Bryan Rainey is the author of the METAVERSE and Odyssey Star sagas. He is also the publisher and cover artist of the books.
