RESOLUTION is the story of Xaan Maddox, a legendary member of the Outer Space Hero Corps known as The Resolute. Now retired, Xaan Maddox has retreated to a distant world in solitude. After leaving THE RESOLUTE to live in retirement in a distant world, she takes care of the gravity-floating seas, catching fish for a living. It’s the simple, lonely life that she wants.
But former comrades arrive and attempt to recruit her to don the exosuit again, so they can bring an alien warlord who is Xaan’s former nemesis to justice. What follows forces Xaan to confront his own past and puts the entire universe in mortal danger.
THE RESOLUTE is a cosmic peacekeeping force, with members recruited from a vast array of worlds, administered by mysterious alien species known as THE HILT. RESOLUTE agents are called BLADES.
Once recruited, young cadets undergo the process, during which they are bound with an exo-costume, fitted with skin-jacks integrated into the base of the neck, spine, wrists and ankles. The exosuit is part of every recruit, remaining bound for life. The exosuit can be summoned at will, generated by skin jacks.
The suits transmute the cosmic energy called dark matter, providing the ability to survive the vacuum of space, super strength and resilience, and the ability to generate energy weapons and explosions. The BLADES have protected the universe time and time again. Xaan Maddox was the tallest of them. Maybe she will be again …
The book is expected to be delivered in March 2022.
