TALES OF KARS VANDOR # 1

MERCHANT OF VISION

Coming in August 2022

A bold heist of an alien artifact can save the worlds of the Varala Drift -

Can rookie space technician Kars Vandor evade the hunters of a ruthless empire?
 

Welding Spaceport Megastructures is dull, low-class work for 19-year-old Kars Vandor.
Little more than a corporate drone waiting for college to start, Kars watches the transits of ships filled with rich cargo and yearns to have a merchant starship of his own. Being a Space Captain would give him status! Credits! And his choice of women…

Then Kars meets Moxxu, an alien refugee of a distant war, who is fleeing from professional assassins and the vengeful, genocidal emperor who wants her dead. A former Naval Astrogator, Moxxu needs a skilled technician as her partner, and Kars seizes this unlikely chance to escape his poor home colony and make a name for himself.

Armed with an ancient laser pistol and traveling with an Esper he freed from bondage, Kars leaps into action, quickly finding himself in the depths of an interstellar war over ancient alien technology.

Little does Kars know he is on course to meet his fate, light-years away at the abandoned spaceport known to grizzled spacers as Laressa Station…

A thrilling space opera adventure awaits readers inside the debut novel from James H. Jenkins.
