GENE RODDENBERRY'S EARTH: FINAL CONFLICT

From the popular television series by the creator of Star Trek (tm)

Liam Kincaid walks a dangerous tightrope. While he serves as Protector of the enigmatic Taelon Companion, Da'an, secretly he also heads the human Resistance, Earth's only hope against the aliens. With deception and danger a constant, it doesn't seem life could get any harder-until the Taelons' Synod leader, Zo'or, releases a virus among the human populace that infects thousands. Yet Zo'or intends something even more sinister than genocide, forcing Liam and the Resistance to find a cure before many people die and Zo'or's ultimate plan can fully unfold.

What Liam doesn't realize is that to end the suffering, he'll have to delve into his alien past. But it'll take great courage to explore so deeply the deadly secrets of his mysterious alien . . .
Heritage

BOOK 5: HERITAGE

Liam Kincaid, the human Protector assigned to Da'an, the North American Taelon Companion, has had a difficult time balancing his duties for the aliens with his responsibility as the head of the secret, underground Resistance that is Earth's only hope for survival under the aliens.

Liam has also struggled with his alien heritage. He's managed to control the shaqarava, the power he wields, inherited from his Kimera ancestor, who came from a distant world in another galaxy.

Left to himself, he thinks he'd be able to master the power that sometimes possesses him to send a vast beam of energy toward some perceived threat. When he is accidentally infected by a Taelon virus that Zo'or, head of the Taelon Synod, has unleashed for the purpose of creating shaqarava in humans, Liam catches more than the artificial flu that was designed into the virus.

Instead, he is so seriously ill that it will require more than mere medicine to cure him. For the illness has awakened memories he didn't know he had--memories that could save . . . or kill him.

As his friends in the Resistance try to save him and stop the Taelon plague, Liam wrestles with the inner demons from his past in a life-and-death struggle for survival.

This exciting novel based on the hit television series will be a revelation to series viewers, and a thrilling novel of the near future for all readers.
