The Tribes of Yggdrasil

The Tribes of Yggdrasil – First Trilogy

An Epic Space Opera

The first three books in the Tribes of Yggdrasil series, plus the Best Selling Prequel!

The Tribes of Yggdrasil series begins just over a century in our future, but it’s a time you might not recognize. A century has been shaped by contact with mankind’s mythological past and the intervention of ancient alien races. It’s a time where starships ply the stars, where Alfar build great living-cities on their planets, and where the Dvergar dominate the local stellar-economy. It’s a time where mankind meets a great evil, the Hrymar, a twisted offshoot of the elves, and it’s a time where the old Viking Gods walk among the stars.

The Yggdrasil Codex – Book 0, Prequel:

Two University researchers stumble upon an incredible secret encoded on ancient Scandinavian runestones. Their discovery leads them into the world of modern code-breakers and ultimately, leads to a revelation with galactic consequences!

Star Wolves – Book 1:

A century ago a beneficent alien race, the Alfar, uplifted mankind to the stars and unwittingly seeded their doom. Humanity had just begun to ply the dark interstellar seas and were wholly unprepared for the malevolent forces they would awaken.

When Haldor Olsen unearths an ancient alien technology, the Hrymar slavers learn about mankind, a lucrative new source of slaves—the basis of their interstellar economy.

The slavers obliterate mankind’s first extra-solar colony, enslaving or killing all 10,000 colonists—including Haldor’s wife and son.

Haldor seems to be the only one taking this new threat seriously. With a small but well trained crew, he travels hundreds of light-years in a frantic race around the Galaxy to save mankind from total enslavement. In the process, he’s forced to make a deal with the devil to ward off the coming tide of destruction.

Star Fury- Book 2:

Earth is still reeling from the Hrymar Holocaust. Many of her major cities are still burning after millions were exterminated in nuclear bombardment, and thousands more taken off-world as slaves.

The SID is fractured and impotent, with no political will to attack the enemy; content to bide their time. But the threats are dire. A recently discovered network of inter-stellar gates built by ancient progenitors of mankind, offer an open back-door for Earth’s enemies.

Earth’s richest man and now most-reviled traitor, threatens to sell Earth’s secrets and hides in an unknown sector of space conducting unspeakable experiments on sentient races.

Haldor Olsen is tasked with hunting down the traitor.

Supporting Haldor on one hand, a secret cabal within Earth’s government has made a side-deal with the slavers, and sends Earth’s mighty fleet, and Haldor’s best friend, to bring Haldor to justice for doing his job.

Star Viking- Book 3:

The first inter-stellar feudal state was dedicated to just one purpose: crushing the Hrymar.

Haldor Olsen has sworn an oath to see it done.

Driven to avenge his wife and son, he also seeks to protect the remaining human colonies, and to free those taken as slaves.

But there is a new urgency to the war. The Hrymar are experimenting on human children.

In a universe where a five-year-old girl can destroy a battle fleet, where an ancient-evil awakens, and Viking gods still have a hand in the world of Humanity, can Olsen keep his oath, avenge his family, and save humanity from the Hrymar?

Across a thousand-light-years these forces threaten to become an apocalyptic future that could sunder the stars themselves.

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

So what is Star Wolves all about? In a nutshell, it starts out with humanity colonizing the stars, but their colonization efforts soon turn deadly as they encounter an evil, interstellar galactic-empire. Their exploration of local space causes the Hrymar to take notice of them as a new source of slaves, turning humanity’s space exploration into an advertisement for alien colonization and invasion. “Hey there! We’re new to space and ripe for the picking!”

This is not the first time this has happened. The same thing happened to the Britons who were left after the Roman Empire departed what is now England. The Britons bumped into the Anglo Saxons and invited them to help beat off the foul Picts to the North. Soon the Anglo Saxons were running the place.

In addition to being passionate about Science Fiction, Space Opera in particular, (Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate etc.), I’m also passionate about Norse Mythology. Star Wolves is my attempt at blending those genres. It’s equal parts Military Science Fiction and Space Opera, with some Norse Mythology DNA. If you enjoyed any of the Star Wars movies and the Thor movies (Thor, Thor: The dark world), then you’ll LOVE The Tribes of Yggdrasil series.

In addition to star spanning galactic empires, human colonization and some fast paced space fleet action, there’s also an overarching thread to do with an ancient evil crusade—I can’t say too much about that! You’ll read more about that as the series progresses.

I don’t try to make my books all things to all people, but you’ve got to have a good love story in any book, right? I mean, that’s human nature. Of course I have one here. No, this isn’t Science Fiction Romance, but there’s a character arc about a man and his family, and his love for them. My goal is to make this series as complete as possible. Life isn’t just about shoot-em up gunfights, or space exploration, or alien invasions, or even a love connection. A good story should resonate with the reader on many levels. I hope I nailed it.

The Yggdrasil Codex

The Yggdrasil Codex

The Yggdrasil Codex

Who are we? Why are we here? Are we all there is?

Profound questions that few have answers for, though mankind continues to ask, apparently to deaf heavens. But what if we did have answers? What if we could ask someone? What would that be like?

The Yggdrasil Codex blends the best parts of a modern science fiction thriller with equal quantities first contact science fiction and Norse mythology.

In this life there are a great many profound questions that have yet to be answered and thankfully, philosophers and scientists around the world continue to ask, and to help us make sense of them. This is such a tale.

In the Yggdrasil Codex, two young friends and scientists, both undertaking vastly different fields of study (Astrophysics and Runology), come together to help solve the greatest of life’s mysteries.

While researching ancient Viking runestones at the University of Oslo in Norway, Magnus Olsen and his friend Tariq Al-Fazari, make an astonishing discovery. Their find is of such magnitude that the Norwegian and English Prime Ministers set up a joint task force and the researchers are rushed to Bletchley Park in London, historic home of the famous WWII code breakers.

Bringing together the world’s greatest minds in astronomy, astrophysics, runology, history and mathematics, the team unlocks the secrets to the Yggdrasil Codex.

What happens next will rustically shift the course of human history and will ultimately have galactic consequences!

A few words from the author:

The idea for the Yggdrasil Codex struck me one day when I was walking through our garden in Virginia. I won’t tell you exactly why, but you’ll understand once you read the story. Much like any of you, I often asked myself – why? Why are we here? If there is a God, why did he/she create us? This story is my attempt at puzzling out those answers.

Many of you enjoyed the story so much that it became an Amazon best seller, and inspired me to write a series of novels which take place 115 years after the events in the Yggdrasil Codex.

(This short story is 3200 words)

BONUS: Includes the first 3 chapters of the Novel “Star Wolves” which takes place 115 years after this short story!
