The Daedalus Rimes Saga:
Book 1: Essence
First contact; an extraterrestrial craft brings a message to Earth.
From the depths of space, two alien armadas converge on a small solar system containing a shining gem called Earth. To one armada the planet represents a resource it can harvest, to the other an obstacle in its mission of revenge. Dade never gave much credence to extraterrestrial life until the day he was abducted. In an experiment intended to create a means of communication with Earth’s inhabitants, his memories are transferred to an alien conscript named Teela. As the probability of victory in their pursuit of revenge falters, all hope rests on an unlikely alliance with the leaders of Earth. Using Dade’s knowledge and memories, Teela must rise above her humble origin to stop a mutiny, and arrange for communications with the hostile planet. However, she soon discovers she has received more than just his memories, and the success of the mission, and her continued survival, will depend on her ability to moderate the stubborn and unrelenting essence of Daedalus Rimes.
