The Optical Lasso: Beware Of Neptune's Dark Side (2nd Edition)

In the year 2140 CE, Planet 9, more commonly known as Vixus, has resurfaced on the edge of the Milky Way… the only known planet that periodically reverses its rotation. Last seen in the middle of the Kuiper Belt in 2066 CE, it mysteriously disappeared after being discovered by a Galactic Corps scout ship. The unknown energy source enabling Vixus to spin in opposite directions represented great power which could help turn the tide in a war Earth was losing.

The Fighting Fury, the Corps’ finest platoon, has been called in to conduct a search and rescue operation for several missing landing parties. Following a fierce battle on the planet surface, Lieutenant Janet “Cat” Miles, leader of this elite group of combat women, was captured. She soon found herself imprisoned with the Corps’ most fabled leader, Commander Jason Cody. His name would forever be linked to the infamous wormhole hidden on Neptune’s dark side; an area of space now cautiously avoided by all due to the menace which lurks within.

Paranoia raced through both leaders’ minds. Could he trust a woman who seemingly had no imperfections? Could she trust a man who had vanished from sight years ago? Earth’s future laid in the balance as they struggled to overcome their mutual distrust and acknowledge what those before them understood: “If you live long enough, the wisdom will come.”

The Lasso Unravels: When All Hell Breaks Loose

In the year 2140 CE, following a devastating attack by an unknown adversary, Earth’s surviving population has fled underground and emergency supplies are dwindling at an alarming rate. With their communication satellites having been destroyed, Frane Paxton, the planet’s religious leader, telepathically alerts the Galactic Corps destroyer, Indiana, of their dire circumstances.

Positioned on the outer edge of the Milky Way, Gregory Knight’s warship is one of the few to have escaped the recent onslaught leveled at the third planet from the sun. Wary of Paxton’s mental prowess, the captain decides to send the Corps’ most decorated warrior, Lieutenant Janet “Cat” Miles, back to Earth to assess the situation. However, demons have surfaced within the lieutenant, casting doubt on her ability to successfully navigate the long journey home. If only her lover and confidant, Supreme Commander Jason Cody, could be by Cat’s side in her hour of need.

To compound an already tenuous situation, the universe has suddenly begun showing signs of fraying at its edges. Distant galaxies are inexplicably being consumed by an unnatural threat that is rapidly progressing toward Earth. Are all these actions somehow related? Where is the missing commander? Can his optical lasso possibly halt this chain reaction of destruction? Enrapture yourself in the excitement of a true page turner, Marc Corwin’s sci-fi fantasy thrill ride: The Lasso Unravels, When All Hell Breaks Loose.
