All three books in ‘Displaced’, a series of science fiction novels by Stephen Drake, now in one volume!
Displaced: When Kevin Murdock is revived from suspended animation aboard a transport pod, he and his nine fellow occupants have no idea what to expect. Murdock argues for caution after seeing something strange: animals also inhabit their new environment, all of them larger than their Earthly counterparts. Conflict soon erupts between Murdock and James Whittier – a politician with a lust for power and control. But soon, they all realize that there’s something even more dangerous onboard… something that might cost them all their lives.
Civilization: After a new transport pod holding 200 more people lands, none of the new arrivals know what to expect. Kevin Murdock finds that the pod holds an unexpected surprise for him personally; Rose’s brother, who has brought his own issues. Conflicts rage between Murdock and Phylicia Cunningham, a distaff cousin to James Whittier, with her own lust for power and has a need for vengeance against the person she is certain had killed her cousin. Soon, Murdock’s knowledge of the Oomah, and their ways, is expanded and further questions about his history are raised.
Resolutions: Kevin Murdock, husband, martial artist and longtime resident of the planet of the Oomah, is still center stage and still reluctant to mentor any of the new batch of 2,000 arrivals. He alone remains the only justice on the planet. Very few of the arrivals are leaders, and more clueless and dangerous individuals. Surprises await Murdock and his family members. Are the plateau dwellers going to be the seeds of a new civilization, or will they devolve into something else – something dangerous to the remnants of humanity?
