Book Description

"This book is simply amazing."
"A brilliant read!"
"Excellent SciFi tech opera."
"Young scifi readers will enjoy this book. They will identify with the characters and enjoy the action."
"Interesting plot line nice twist at the end."

Londuo is an eighteen-year-old Qinant teenager, who is stranded in Colorado, USA, after the spaceship Aurora is destroyed. The year is 1964. Fifty-five years later, seventeen-year-old James is living in the English countryside and thinks he is just a normal teenager. However, his mother has kept a secret from him, one that will change his life and ultimately the fate of his race.
As teenagers, Londuo and James’ paths have crossed before, in a timeline where every world in the galaxy is under threat from the Treitans. Time was supposed to have been rewritten, but yet it seems, in a war-torn galaxy, they are destined to meet again...

The Aurora is a science fiction adventure written for Young Adults, but is perfect for anyone who likes this genre.

Excerpt:
With a loud bang, the inner event horizon drives of the Aurora started and James heard a loud crack from each side of the ship, signally that the docking clamps had disengaged.
   ‘CLAMPING STATION FIVE RETRACTED.’
   With great speed and accuracy the Aurora quickly moved away from its clamping station and powered out through the Lonori’s open bay doors. Then, with a roar the Aurora spun towards Dagnamk. As it turned, James fired all front plasma tubes at a Treitan destroyer closing rapidly.
   Directly ahead of the Aurora were two enemy heavy cruisers.
   Straight down the middle, Kalrea! James thought.
   The Aurora’s front and rear lasers struck out at passing fighters.
   ‘FIVE INCOMING DIAMOND SPREAD.’
   ‘SIX INCOMING FLAT SPREAD.’
   The Aurora banked sharply away from one of the cruisers, but two missiles hit the underside of the ship, pushing it off course. James peered out the front of the ship. It was now heading directly towards the other enemy cruiser.
   ‘WARNING! COLLISION ALERT.’
   ‘FRONT PLASMA TORPEDOES GENERATED.’
   The Aurora was already too close to the Treitan cruiser.
   James watched in horror. Oh shit! he thought.
   The Aurora tried to twist and bank over the top of the cruiser but it was travelling too quickly. The edge of the Aurora crashed against the Treitan ship, and like a mighty sword striking its enemy, sliced through the hull of the cruiser. Air and debris escaped from the gaping wound left behind, and Treitan bodies blown into space, spun away in the wake of the ship.
   In the distance, the Qinant fleet had turned. Explosions erupting from the Rellopila lit the path of the retreating ships. The rear of the Thardopila was on fire where air was escaping and one of the Lonori’s port event horizon drives was flickering.
   The Aurora was now under heavy attack. Both its multi-directional lasers worked relentlessly to intercept the missiles.
   ‘SIX INCOMING!’
   James fired three rear plasma torpedoes at the incoming missiles. There were massive explosions behind the ship. Then, suddenly three more missiles came hurtling out of the fading plasma.
   ‘THREE INCOMING!’
   Like a stone thrown violently into a lake, the Aurora entered the Dagnamk atmosphere. The perusing missiles hit the atmosphere and detonated but did not cause any damage to the Aurora. The explosions obscured James’ view of the battle.

More About the Author

Adrian lives in North Yorkshire, England, with his wife Cheti and their cat Mia. He started out his working life as a mechanical engineer, manufacturing prototypes for research projects. However, he always had a passion for computer programming and soon jumped ship to change careers. He has now been working in IT for over twenty-five years, writing and designing software solutions.

He has always been a fan of science fiction adventure and space travel, and dipped his toe into the vast ocean of writing science fiction many years ago. The book, The Aurora, then laid unfinished until 2010, when upon the loss of something very dear to him, he needed to lose himself in another world, and so channelled his energy and creative thoughts into finally completing it. The second book in the Aurora Saga, Immortality for life, was published in July 2012 and the third book, Kalrea's Legacy, in 2014.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable novel 16 Oct. 2011
By Nicole
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a good science fiction book with an intriguing plot, a nice pace, action packed battles and a romantic relationship. The two main protagonists are two teenagers who fight for the survival of their race and fall in love of each other. I think that this book is well conceived, with twists and moments of suspense that make it captivating. The writing style does not always fit my taste and the book could improve a lot if there was a little more introspection of the characters. Nevertheless, I enjoyed a lot reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read! 27 Feb. 2013
By Rin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I was sceptical about a free book. I've been down the long road of downloading free things and then just deleting them as they weren't any good.
But this book is simply amazing and I'm surprised as to why the author doesn't charge for it! James has the duty of saving the world, and is helped with an unlikely ally in the situation. It's amazing how Fulcher makes you feel how the characters feel and leaves you thinking about the ending long after you've read it.
And again, I'm sceptical about sci-fi fantasies, but you can't judge a book by it's cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD CONCEPT BUT 5 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good concept and has some good ideas but is lacking in flow and real characterisation. Good enough read to want to know what happens but ultimately you do not really care for the characters.
