The Tesserene Imperative

(The second book in the Imperative Chronicles series)
A novel by

By the author of the former #1 bestselling Military Sci-Fi novel on Amazon (My Other Car is a Spaceship).

It was supposed to be a routine mission, but in a deep-space asteroid belt nothing is routine.

When prospecting ship Shamu is nearly destroyed, the crew of five is left with three days of air, little water, a smashed starflight drive, and no hope of rescue. It will take every ounce of ingenuity and stubborn pigheadedness they possess to find a way to survive.

In the shadows of a small moon, an amazing discovery awaits that could lead to first contact. Will it open the galaxy to human exploration, or doom mankind to extinction?

Despite being part of a series (The Imperative Chronicles), THE MARS IMPERATIVE (Book One) and THE TESSERENE IMPERATIVE (Book Two) can be read in either order, or individually. They are complete, loosely related, stand-alone stories, along the lines of McCaffrey's Brainship series or Saberhagen's Berserker series. You don't necessarily have to read both - but, of course, you'll want to!
