About the book
Life on Kairos is exciting. The Destiny crew awaits the first of seven colony ships to arrive. An attempt by members of an organization on Earth to sabotage Colony One had failed. Now, Colony Two brings word that the Merrill Organization, the original designers and financial sponsors of the Destiny project, has an uncertain future. Earth was rapidly becoming an autocratic state.
Shortly after the arrival of Colony Seven, an armada arrived with the remnants of the Merrill Corporation. Kairos was now on its own. Enduring the dangers and unknowns that the new territory presents, the citizens of Kairos, continue to explore their new homeland and entertain dreams to again expand into space.
