About

Alexander Hellene is either a dilettante or a Renaissance man, depending on whom you ask. A musician, athlete, artist, and law school graduate, Alexander has always been attracted to fantastical tales, since they tend to do a better job of explaining how the world works than just about anything else. He lives in New England with his wife and children.

"The author brings familiar space opera concerns to this novel: space colonization, inter-species war, and super science. Fun stuff, and enough to satisfy fans of the space opera genre. To this he adds his unique contribution, which is a concern for Eastern Orthodox Christians and what they've had to do through the centuries to survive in hostile world."

"If you want Christian fiction that’s cool and something completely different, here you are. Loved the character of Garrett, loved the specter of his father hanging over him, loved how friendship was portrayed. Cant really say more about what I liked without giving away the plot. The action scenes are well written, and the dialogue is natural, and even funny. One of my favorite characters was Father Khouri. There is a plot twist in this book that will make you sit up and take notice. That’s when I started getting really excited about it and it stopped being just an adventure story."
