A crossover novel of Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Romance/Adventure
Jake Foley and April Elliot, whose parents trace their lineage to the planet Flammeria, were born on Earth and have embraced Earth as their home. Both attended the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Flammeria’s mission on Earth, headed by Jake’s sister, Laura, is to monitor Earth’s volatile climate which has devastated past civilizations. Rejecting the Flammerian mission, ten years ago, Jake and April made a pact to separately pursue their own interests. Jake resigned his Navy commission and left the East coast abandoning Laura, along with Rachel, his Earth girlfriend, and his life in the Annapolis area. But, his search for an alternate life for himself went nowhere and he ended up living in the Midwest with his father.
Now, ten years later, Jake is strangely driven to return to Maryland and the life he abandoned those years ago. He resolves to set both his Earth and Flammerian lives back on track. However, things are not the way he left. He finds he has a twin sister, Sheila, who tells him that she and the Distans she cares for, both of who he never knew existed, are threatened by the Zantites, an alien race.
The Distans, a species of eight inch tall, fairy-like creatures live in the huge gardens by the Flammerian house ialong the James River in St Michaels, Maryland. The tiny Distans, with their human-like bodies, have wings and can fly. In addition they can read human thoughts and telepathically send them hundreds of miles. To aid in his communication with Sheila, Jake is assigned two Distans, Moonglimmer and Ceellia, who go with him everywhere. As Jake seeks to embrace the Flammerian mission, he gradually becomes aware of a deep seated hidden mission he has been tasked with, and that he and those around him, are not who they think.
As confrontation with the Zantites approaches, Jake and Laura are becoming more aware of the implanted mission, the particulars of which was set in their minds thousands of years ago and is now being brought to light. Together with April, who is now a Navy Fighter pilot, and the two Distans, Moonglimmer and Ceellia, Jake must aggressively oppose the Zantites, who seek to establish a base on Earth, then convince Rachel, the girl he left behind, to join them on a mission that will take them a long way from Earth.
