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.
