Pawns (the wielders of arantha book 1)

Seven hundred years in the future, a powerful alien race called the Jegg invade Earth, wiping out half of the Terran Confederation.

In a hidden base under the Sahara Desert, a team of scientists is working to mount a resistance against the invaders. Fitting an Earth ship with Jegg folding-space technology, they plan to travel to the other side of the galaxy to find a mysterious energy source - one that could help them defeat the Jegg.

Only two of the crew survive and make it to their destination: the team leader's wife Maeve, and her teenage son Davin. What they find on the distant planet forever changes the future of their family and their planet, as they enter a race against time... and against impossible odds.

Sample text:

The old woman lay on her bed, motionless, staring up at the ceiling of the only home she’d ever known. She was born in this room. She would die there too.

She’d laid her withered hands upon the Stone one last time the day before, feeling the surge of warm, familiar energy as it coursed through her frail body. Her mind beheld an array of familiar images: the past, present and future of her people, a history she helped shape. As the feeling of unity with Arantha began to subside, she felt suffused with a tremendous sense of inner peace. Her work finished, she would soon be welcomed into Arantha’s waiting arms.

For her people, the road ahead would be difficult. Their isolated way of life, the path Arantha put them on centuries ago, would end. The chain of events she’d set in motion with her final order would see to that. And it would be up to her daughter Kelia, as her successor, to discover a new path for them. New enemies would arise, as would new allies. She saw them all, time and time again, in her mind’s eye: the dark twins, the northern mage, the painted woman from the Above.
