Exile To The Stars – Book One
Jeff Friedrick s world is crumbling. Forced into a duel, nearly killed by a gang, out of a job, and nowhere to turn. Trying to find some peace, he hikes into the mountains and is knocked unconscious during an earthquake. Awakening, Jeff suddenly realizes that the land is totally unfamiliar. Confused, starving, uncertain which way to go, he stumbles out of the mountains and into a new world. An immense, untouched continent, the Northlands of Aketti pose risks that Jeff has never faced, or imagined. The inhabitants, the animals, the land itself all threaten to kill him. Alone, desperate for hope, he finally meets a people who are willing to take him in. This is the story of a twenty-first century man, an anthropologist, challenged to survive the elements and a radically different society where academic credentials mean nothing. Aketti is a primitive world where a man is no better than his word, and no better than his willingness to defend that word with whatever weapon is at hand. At the same time, life is uncomplicated. You always know where you stand. Just don t forget: there is no safety net. People who are not what they seem, animals that are much more than that, battles that span a continent, discovery of power, and a state of love that Jeff had given up ever finding all intermix in a fast-paced adventure that spans two worlds.

Bordering the Great Southern Ocean in the west, it is a land of mystery, intrigue and welcomes no one. Yet, whatever the risks, it is either Zomar or the Northern Kingdom will have to go it alone.
