Searching for a Hero

(The eighth book in the Annihilation series)
A novel by

From the International Bestselling Author, Saxon Andrew, comes the newest book in the Annihilation series. For the first time since it was founded, the Stars Realm was at peace. The major forces of evil had been destroyed and there was no civilization that could take on the power of the Realm. But evil has a way of growing like a cancer. Long dormant, many civilizations looked around and coveted what others possessed. Looking at the big picture, all appeared to be calm and peaceful on the surface, but a closer inspection would reveal the growing numbers of would be conquerors starting to flex their muscles. These seeds were growing in power and numbers, but against the backdrop of creation, they were difficult to see in the hundreds of billions of galaxies.

Five hundred years had passed since the destruction of the last five major evil civilizations that threatened Creation. The Realm's military had shrunk in numbers and most of them were used closer to home. The heroes of the Realm had vanished over time and the numbers of Royalty who still possessed psychic abilities had decreased to being almost non-existent. The ability to sense what was coming had been lost and the Realm was flying blind into a future none could see or anticipate.

The Giant Northern Mountain Cats notified the King that Creation had sent a message to find a special warrior. This warrior was needed to lead the Realm against a coming enemy that was as dangerous as any the Realm had ever faced. Peace was ending and the orders went out; the Realm began searching for a Hero.

Excerpt from; Searching for a Hero

Ping had been feeling a sense of danger the moment he arrived at the ghost fleet but had chalked it up to the depression of seeing the magnitude of death. He focused on the feeling and hit his communicator, "Sir, is there a possibility that we might be watched by those we suspect came here?"

"What do you mean, Kendel?"

"I suggest you order our ships into the ranks of these ships; we might be attacked if they are keeping watch."

Captain Elliott saw the danger a moment before ten thousand of his ships exploded.

Ping saw the Grey Ships appear and start firing on the Searchers holding station outside the millions of dead ships. He hit his teleport board to join the fighting and nothing happened. He activated his null jump drive and it was also not working. He hit his panel and Commodore Jenson appeared, "Sir, we are under attack by a fleet that is twice our number. A teleport and null drive suppression field has been activated and we are unable to jump away."

Jenson's expression showed his shock, "Hold out, I'm sending help."

Ping looked out at the battle and saw the Realm's Searchers were being chewed up. Whoever the enemy was, they had managed to get close enough to open fire before they were detected and their plan was extraordinarily good. Only ten thousand Searchers managed to make it into the ranks of the derelict ships and they were being pursued by more than ten enemy ships each.

"Mios, Jodie, move into the center of this fleet and use the derelict Searchers to shield yourselves until help can arrive. Stay close to the area of the blasted ships."

"Why there?"

"That's where they're getting the ships to study and they might be reluctant to fire indiscriminately. Now move!" Ping accelerated toward the incoming enemy ships and knew help might not arrive in time. His eyes narrowed as he selected his first target.
