A splashdown, a golden age, the extinction of the human race: that is where Beacon's Odyssey begins... The ancient robot had no name, mysterious was its origin, but Dr. Anne Morrison soon realized it was the very axis point of the darkest game of all time. An intangible cold war is raging and has been across epochs spanning thousands of years. If left unchecked it will end in the utter nullification of all reality. The robot must recruit a ragtag bunch of dysfunctional space farers brought together from different planets and different eras. Only they have the power to balance the titanic forces which threaten to unleash havoc upon all eternity. Fraught with danger, these unlikely paragons become caught in the crossfire and the cross-hairs of these implacable enemies as they race towards an intergalactic endgame, to unlock the harrowing truth of Armageddon’s secret before it is too late. The chase is on, but who is chasing who? And is the mechanical emissary hastening them to this final showdown a messiah or the harbinger of their ultimate destruction? Beacon’s Odyssey is a science-fiction masterpiece of betrayal and pragmatism set on an epic scale. Its riddles will leave you guessing until the very last page.
