Book One: 'The Dust of Ages'

It is a few years into our future, and there are bases on the Moon. A recent survey has shown something unusual, an unknown power source.

When a tall, skinny spiky-haired stranger turns up and announces he’s from the Bureau of Alien technology doing a spot check, the survey team know they’ve found something special.

But is this special power a blessing or a curse?
