Jake is a human mercenary looking for a quiet place to rest. But then his Protect Dar-dolf attacks the last living Henu, Arr. Feeling responsible, Jake stays on to care for Arr! Unfortunately, though, the alien with deep blue cat eyes and unusual abilities recovers.
Jake takes on the role of teacher, mentor, father, and lost brother for his new alien friend. He and Arr share adventures dealing with the Hydra, a race of lizard-like creatures who kidnap members of other species to sell on the black market as slaves; battle the Narnon on Gligula where Tuldavian Swamp Lizards lay their traps just below the surface of the slime; and engage in numerous other missions while learning to appreciate each others rare abilities.
Ultimately, they must face their toughest foe, the Helavites, a species which has been preying on the weaker beings in the universe for generations. In the underground catacombs of these beetle-like creatures a mystery is solved and the foundation for the resurrection of an old world are laid.
Book Reviews for The Helavite War:
“The Helavite War takes me back to when I first read the early science fiction works of Heinlein, Asimov, etc. There is a sense of boldness, innocence and the essential goodness of mankind, wrapped up in a universe that is bigger than we know now and yet navigable by humans.” – JKMohr
“Characters stay true and are well developed! There’s some great scene description, emotionally engaging and the plot keeps you caught up.” Angie C.
