Many of the stories and deeds of men ultimately vanish into obscurity.
Fame and beauty are ephemeral.
Treasures are won and lost.
Empires are created and destroyed.
What survives is often passed down as legend and myth.
But some stories are not forgotten with time's passage. Sometimes they live on to inspire great ambition, merciless revenge... Or BOTH.
"Alliance" is such a story.
Earth is under attack by a shadowy extraterrestrial race called the Kytaan. The attacks are as inexplicable as they are brutal. Mankind's fate seems inevitably doomed.
Jenna, the faithless daughter of a discredited archeologist starts her story here. Though long estranged from her father and his old-world values, she takes up his research after he disappears in a Kytaan attack.
Jenna subsequently deciphers a message from the simple artifact that her father unsuccessfully spent a lifetime seeking. Reluctantly, she must depend on Hasan Gabriel, a tough Bedouin fighter pilot who is as devout as he is blind, to lead her on a dangerous mission, unsanctioned even by the Earth Alliance.
At stake: mankind's very survival.
