Echoes of Esharam by Robert Davies
Hardcover, Softcover, Ebook
“a brilliant work…Davies is to science fiction literature what Gene Roddenberry was to TV.” 
—Susan Dion, LibraryThing Early Reviewers 
Astronaut. Repairman. Prisoner. 

CenturoCorp engineer Darrien Norris begins a journey across Terran Colonial space to restore a broken mining machine on a distant, mineral harvest world. It was supposed to be routine—a good run to finish his career—but his shuttle is thrown without warning from its course by an unseen power and survival becomes the only thing that matters. 

Catapulted across half the galaxy to a violent and hostile place, Norris has been left to survive or die inside an inescapable, alien horror merely for the crime of being lost—of being human. Escape is his purpose, but what he finds in the grinding, desperate fight to live will forever change the path of human history.

The Primus Initiative by Robert Davies
“I could not put the book down…full of interesting species and plenty of details…their life stories are richly told and as you read the story, you find yourself immersed in their struggles. I would recommend this book to everyone.” 
—LibraryThing Early Reviewers (barmecidal)
“all the hallmarks of becoming an epic. Without doubt I recommend this work to all lovers of good science fiction.” 
—LibraryThing Early Reviewers (Hopback)
“I haven't decided if I am a sci-fi fan or not. But I am a fan of Robert Davies. He writes beautifully [and] brings to life the alien cultures and planets.” 
—Allie Bock, Goodreads Reviewer
“I liked the constant feeling of impending disaster in this book. This is not a run of the mill space opera. The characters are likeable, the story held my interest and the book addressed many social issues, as science fiction often does. I highly recommend this one.”   
—David, Goodreads Reviewer
