Deviation: A devolved culture aboard lost starships is threatened by aliens. (Extinction Book 4) (1 Viewer)


As an escaped slave, Oscar believes his troubles are over, but from across the universe an omnipotent alien intellect has other plans.

The lost progeny of a scorched Earth barely survives aboard ancient decrepit starships, lost in outer space. Street gangs and slave markets rule the ships, while Oscar guards a safe haven for others fleeing bondage.

As gangs battle for supremacy, their ship is plunged into darkness. A Signal from deep space has taken control and will force the crews onto a dangerous path of contrition and reunification. To survive, Oscar must forge alliances with old enemies in a war with a lost sector of society.

Who sent the Signal, and why? Will complying with its mandate lead to extinction or guide humanity to an idyllic future?

Extinction - 4, Deviation. Available on Amazon.com
