Destiny Rising is an extended edition of Outsystem and A Path in the Darkness, the first two books in The Intrepid Saga. It is re-structured, re-edited, and contains over 100 pages of new content, including a new opening to the series.
Commander Joseph Evens has flown starfighters in the deep black for years, but when he is sent on a mission to blockade a federation member's capital world, he wonders what he has put his faith in.
The Sol Space Federation has bound the worlds and habitats of the Sol System together since the end of the second Solar War, but that was long ago, and the old alliances, which were forged with the Phobos Accords, are now all but forgotten.
Beyond Sol's heliopause, the Future Generation Terraformers create new worlds for humanity to spread to, and back home, the Generation Ship Service commissions great colony ships to reach those worlds.
They may have picked the wrong ship. From eco-terrorists, to rival colony ships, to corporations and governments. No one wants the Intrepid to ever leave the Sol System. It will fall to Tanis and Joe to save the Intrepid and earn their place on its roster in their struggle to get outsystem.
