About the Book

A clash of galactic empires,

An ancient alliance in crisis and defeat,

A desperate plan for survival,

The Dawn of MAN…

In 50,000 BC the Reiign was an ancient race with a far-flung galactic empire when cave men roamed the earth. Their golden age spanned many millennia and brought their philosophy of peaceful co-existence and technological exchange to many sentient species and solar systems in their spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. Their march towards universal self-determination was shattered by an invading menace from the Large Magellanic Cloud. The clash of equally ancient but diametrically opposed cultures left the Reiign, a race genetically cleansed of most aggressive tendencies for many thousands of years, facing annihilation.

Desperate situations breed desperate measures… A group of scientists escaped to the last frontier of the galaxy. In a last ditch attempt to save their empire and culture, they devised a stratagem to defeat the invaders. Their plan, a 50,000 year genetic breeding project, results in the creation of the perfect warrior, a biological construct bred for aggression and genetically optimized for war; a being sociologically conditioned to the shedding of blood on a mass scale, the ultimate killing machine—they created MAN!
