Unlikely Prophet

a science fiction novel
by L. S. King

a prequel of the Sword's Edge Chronicles taking place one thousand years before Sword's Edge


"This is the heart-stopping history of how those who would become the Rangers and the people they defend came to their world even as their former planet was in her death throes and of their initial meeting with the mysterious Enaisi. The characters are interesting, complex individuals, and King makes her readers care about them and want to learn more of their story."
  - P.M. Griffin, award-winning SF/F author of the Star Commandos series



Unlikely Prophet


Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions...
A toxic atmosphere...
Security Chief Avadhron's people were forced to retreat to living in domes, but how long can they last? In anger and despair, they turn on each other; riots have broken out and domes are sealed due to clan feuds.
And now, on top of all their troubles and dangers, a long-dormant portal activates, and an alien arrives.
Why has the portal activated now? What scheme brings this alien to their world? Can he be trusted?
Avadhron finds himself called a prophet, expected to help the aliens and to lead the way in bringing his people to safety.
But is he in time?
And if so, at what cost?
