The Saxen Saga

“One of the best

space opera stories

I’ve read all year.”

P. Deka (from Reader’s Favorite)
on The Handler’s Gambit

A Thrill Ride Across the Galaxy

The Saxen Saga takes place in the Milky Way galaxy approximately 12,000 years from now. There are no aliens and very few habitable worlds, but humanity has adapted to living in space and on strange planets both culturally and genetically.

Among the new type of human is the Saxen race. With an ancestry of genetic alteration by virus, Saxen have developed the ability to harness and control molecular and wave physics: gravity, fire, electromagnetism, light, and water.

Many Saxen have abused their power, and the majority of humankind despises and abhors them. Some fight for survival, some fight for their rights, and some fight for power in the distant quadrant called the Penumbra.
