FROM MILLION-COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR JASPER SCOTT
A MISSION TO ANOTHER WORLD COULD BE OUR ONLY HOPE...
The year is 2790 AD: with space elevators and giant orbital fleets hovering over Earth, open war looks inevitable, and people are anxious to get away.

The lines are drawn, with the Confederacy in the East, and the First World Alliance in the West. In hopes of finding a refuge from the looming war, the Alliance is sending Captain Alexander de Leon to explore an Earth-type planet, code-named Wonderland, but at the last minute before launch, a Confederate fleet leaves orbit on a trajectory that threatens both the mission and Alliance sovereignty. The resulting power struggle will determine not only the fate of Alexander's mission, but the fate of the entire human race.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"Jasper Scott's Excelsior is an auspicious start to the New Frontiers trilogy. The story begins with Earth divided into opposing camps, and on the verge of a final war of annihilation...but that's just the start. The race to explore a new solar system, the hunt for enemy spies, and a desperate quest to secure mankind's survival leads to a tension-packed thrill ride that should not be missed!" - Jay Allan

"Excellent, excellent, excellent, book. A helluva thrill-ride... I couldn't put it down. The incredibly realistic science and politics, the superb attention to detail, the no-holds-barred storytelling... when Jasper writes a book, he writes!" - Isaac Hooke

"Great military sci-fi! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys realistic space battles, political intrigue, and surprise endings. This was a fantastic thrill ride trying to guess what would happen next." - Raymond L Weil
