Austin Rogersabout this book: "Sacred Planet" is set in a future where humanity has spread out about 15,000 lightyears in all directions. Three great civilizations have risen to power, each dominating one of the three galactic spiral arms closest to Earth: Orion, Carina, and Sagittarius.
Earth—the Sacred Planet, the destination of millions of religious pilgrims (and their money) each year—remains independent and coveted by all. So long as Earth stays independent, peace reigns in the galaxy. But now a ruthless religious faction threatens to plunge the galaxy into a catastrophic war.
The story centers around the Carinian prime minister's daughter, Sierra Falco, and an opportunistic space scavenger, Davin de la Fossa.
Sierra's space yacht is attacked by a powerful and shadowy enemy, destabilizing the fragile balance of the galaxy. But her attackers' plans are disrupted when a rugged band of scavengers stumble across the yacht and jump at the opportunity to make a profit. Davin, captain of the scavenger ship, must choose between the lure of fabulous wealth and the nag of conscience as he is dragged into a conspiracy bigger than he can imagine.
Fans of James S.A. Corey's Expanse series, Pierce Brown's "Red Rising," and John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" should enjoy the world and story of "Sacred Planet."
