Turn your eyes to the heavens and be amazed…

With one small step, mankind embarked on a journey fraught with potential and danger in equal measure. In A Legacy of Stars, Danielle Ackley-McPhail delves into those same depths as humanity ventures out into the complexity of space.

New worlds…dangers…marvels… Unearthly landscapes and beings that transcend alien. The conflicts of man versus, well… everything, including man. The bittersweet triumph of survival out among the stars.

Explore the harsh realities and boundless possibilities of mankind let loose on the greater universe.

Pitch battles, political intrigues, military conquest, wondrous discoveries… glimpse what it is to be human, or not, in the technological age, beyond the bounds of humanity’s cradle.

Williamson on "In the Dying Light"On Carbon Copy"This story has barely begun before author Danielle Ackley-McPhail plunges us into a high-tech and very high-density combat environment. This is military SF in its purest form." -Steve White, co-author of ExtremisOn Zinn Mensch"A finely wrought tale of deep-space terror." -Bud Sparhawk, author of the Shardie Universe series
