Publisher's Summary

This short story prequel sets up the world of the Rift Jumpers, the pioneers of interstellar space.

Follow the story of Commander Jane Henningsly in her research ship, Dauntless, as she develops the first Faster Than Light (FTL) drive.

Her and her crew set the groundwork for mankind's expansion into the void, making us an interstellar species.

The future of the Rift Contingent will never be the same with the development of the first Rift Jumper-class vessel in space.

Great short

Good prequel that leaves you wanting more! Sci-fi story set in space with a little female romance. Honestly, I'm waiting for Erik to do an erotic sci-fi! lol Looking forward to the rest of this series.

If this Prequel, I am dying to hear the first Book! Wow!

Narrated perfectly by Kristen James, This Sci-fi heavy Short Story buried deep into the ship and ship's staff of rift jumpers, from there scientific mission, rift senses, to who is sleeping with who on the ship, hey it's a long mission they are on. And one that can be dangerous.

Wow

A great beginning to a new book that Erik will be writing. The book is laden with sci fi references, tech talk and an interesting plot.
The narrator does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life and giving them the emotion each of Eriks books is filled with.

Great Beginning!

Any additional comments?

This is a great introduction to a new series (I hope). I'd like to know what's in Erik Schubach's noggin for an interstellar adventure. He has such a great imagination for giving us an alternative view and giving us more from what we are have read before in SyFy and/or Fantasy. I've read many of his books and this prequel is another feather in his cap. Well done!! Not so patiently waiting for more!! 🤓
