The Name of the Shadow

Fear is a double-edged weapon. When a Shadow spreads over the utopian Colony, the only human enclave in a lonely planet, the young will be the first to understand the danger that hovers above them. What they find about themselves in that struggle will lead them to greatness… or to the destruction of their idyllic way of living. Who will rise a hero, and who will become a monster? In the tradition of Ursula LeGuin and Isaac Asimov, this is the story of a people that do not know fear… and what happens when they discover it. Of what is left when paranoia becomes all-encompassing, and men find the evil within each of them.

Alexandra Forever 2291, Book One, The Strange Matter of the Red Dwarf

Alexandra Forever 2291, Book One, The Strange Matter of the Red Dwarf - ASIN B08DM6XB5S

This sci fi adventure opens on the crest of a gravity tsunami, when a red dwarf star system punches through the fabric of space-time and barrels toward the Milky Way Galaxy. The Early Warning Centre can only watch helplessly as colonized space braces for impact. 

Questions arise. Is it merely a star system? Or, is something else altogether?

The dire situation takes an unforeseen twist in this science fantasy when an SOS transmission from a long-lost experimental starship, The Invictus, is traced to the sole planet orbiting the red dwarf.  

Alexandra, Post Office Marshal and living goddess, is in an action-packed race against time when she is conscripted to retrieve either the Invictus itself or, failing that, it’s top-secret data, before the ship is lost to imminent galactic collision, or worse, falls into the wrong hands.
