The Pearl

The PearlAll that stands between humanity and oblivion is the Shutaka...

Humans have long since left Earth to explore the stars and settle new planets throughout the universe. An uneasy truce lies between the Federation of the Inner Rim and the young independent Outer Rim planets.

The Shutaka are an old race of humans – their fierce mercenary warriors feared throughout the Two Rims. But the Shutaka have a secret they have kept for countless generations, since the dawn of time itself. They are the Gatekeepers of God.

Suddenly, the hunters have become the hunted and, unknown to the rest of humanity, the Shutaka are in a race against time to prevent a Dimming that could extinguish all life in the universe. But they are not entirely alone – they find friends in unexpected places who are prepared to sacrifice everything to help them.

But will it be enough?


Escape from Hades

The PearlIf you are going to confront the devil, it’s handy to have God’s Warriors on your side...

The Pearl is safe. The Shutaka have found sanctuary and are slowly rebuilding their strength. While there remains much unrest in the Two Rims, the future of the Shutaka, and that of humanity, seems assured – at least for now.

But for some, the past that will not stay buried and must be confronted once and for all.

Leith Birro and his Shutaka mercenaries respond to a call for help from a former enemy turned ally and their journey leads them to a small planet in the Outer Rim, where they discover demons lurking beneath, ready to unleash unimaginable horrors on the planets.

The Gatekeepers of God have faced many opponents and never failed to be victorious, but this time they may have met their match.

It will take more than just courage...


Eternal Light

Eternal LightAll things must pass – even the Shutaka...

The Pearl is being drawn to Old Earth – and the Keepers must follow or risk losing it. And where the Keepers go, so do the Shutaka.

Their journey will take them through a part of the Inner Rim now experiencing turmoil and conflict, with the Federation still battling remining elements of the deposed traitorous former President.

Leith Birro and his Shutaka mercenaries enlist the help of the Outer Rim Confederacy to provide additional protection on their voyage to the now barren and lifeless Old Earth. There, the Gatekeepers of God are presented with a way in which the safety of the Pearl – and humanity – can be assured for all time.

But there is a large price to be paid.

For the little Shutaka who grew wings, this will be a challenge for which nothing could have prepared her. She may need to sacrifice everything...

Is the time of the Shutaka drawing to a close?
