Journey of the Magi

About the Book

It is the year 2467, and a military coup has brought radical change to the Nakyrie Republic, which is now under the rule of Anatothryn Gant.  Ambassador Aurelius DuKaine of Earth’s Concordium is deeply troubled at what the future holds for the galaxy.  Meanwhile, within Nakyr’s secret police, Dyron Kyrshkandyr is on a hunt to uncover the identity of the Concordium’s most valuable Nakyrie agent, whose code name is Magi.  As the Nakyrie Republic descends into dictatorship, events begin to spin out of control, and Aurelius DuKaine finds his life in ever-growing danger.


Hundreds of light-years away, on the planet of Zahyr, Niles Kaden of the Dragonwine Police Department takes part in a drug bust that goes tragically wrong.  But is everything what it seems?  Fearing for his life, Niles Kaden leaves his homeworld and becomes a Drakewrath, charged with providing security for Drake Enterprises.  But Niles Kaden’s first assignment as Drakewrath forces him to confront the very danger that forced him to flee Zahyr.


The destinies of Aurelius DuKaine, Dyron Kyrshkandyr, Niles Kaden, and Magi become intertwined in this tale of intrigue and action as the story races towards its explosive conclusion.  Will Aurelius DuKaine and his beloved wife escape the growing madness of Nakyr?  Will the sadistic Dyron Kyrshkandyr succeed in capturing Magi?  Will Niles Kaden bring a dangerous criminal to justice?  And what connection does an assassination nearly 100 years earlier have to do with these desperate events?
