Their mission wasn’t supposed to find anything – least of all the truth.
Captain Taylor Ray commands a deep-space recon crew on a mission scouring the far reaches of the galaxy for signs of the Hedalt; Earth’s long-defeated alien enemy.
No-one really expects him to find anything because no-one ever has. After decades of hunting the remnants of the Hedalt across light years, all that remains are ghosts – long-dead outposts of a long-dead civilization.
But Captain Ray enjoys the company of his tight-knit, specialist crew, and the ten years’ worth of pay for just four years in the wilderness also helps.
When his ship detects a faint Hedalt signal and he orders his crew to investigate, Captain Ray couldn’t possibly know what he is about to discover.
Everything he thinks he knows is a lie. The Hedalt war didn’t end. It hasn’t even begun.
The Contingency War takes the alien invasion sci-fi genre and turns it on its head. Buckle up for action, mystery, adventure, and a twist that you won’t see coming…
