Aleronde the Great! At the heart of the empire, the beautiful city of towers, parks, and enforced order
Aleronde the Feared! Militaristic, paranoid, and brutal
Why would any stranger risk going there?
Theo Kingman has to. In The Problem with Uncle Teddy’s Memoir, he and Curt Bookman remember being taken to Aleronde as children. Theo will travel there to learn how and why they were abducted and to discover if Earth will be the next planet despoiled by the Aleronden fleet. Curt has a more personal reason to return.
Theo leans on the expertise of Peter Trowbridge–the only man with proof of aliens visiting Earth.
When Theo’s small party arrives in Aleronde, they find themselves at the mercy of disparate and antagonistic groups. Through one mistake, suddenly it is not just the travelers but the entire city that faces great danger.
Even more cataclysmic may be the mysterious figure from the past unpicking the fabric of the empire with that most dangerous thing: an idea.
