GALENS_WAY_COVER_300_DPI copyBy Richard Paolinelli

Millions of years in the future, humanity has been driven out of the Milky Way and now calls the Andromeda Galaxy home. Lost in their murky past are the tales of great knights that held the line against the invasion of a dark force until the rest of humanity could escape their doom. The last and greatest of these knights was Galen Underwood.

Long after that heroic stand, a mercenary by the name of Galen Dwyn has been hired to rescue a kidnapped princess. Enticed by a healthy down payment and a chance to settle an old score, Galen accepts the job, only to find out it’s a lot more than he bargained for.

Soon Galen finds himself weaving and dodging through a web of political intrigue as the very forces that chase him have set in motion plans that will throw the galactic alliance into civil war. To his surprise, he also finds that the rescued princess might not be quite the spoiled brat he rescued from the clutches of her keeper. Accompanied by the princess, his former mentor, and a snarky AI, Galen sets out to find a way to outsmart entire kingdoms, keep the princess alive, and avert the deaths of millions.

Of course, he’ll also learn the reasons behind his namesake’s chosen path, as he realizes that the only way to win is Galen’s Way.
