The Messenger: A Space Opera Mecha Series
Dash never asked to be a mech pilot, but fate has other plans.
On the run and out of chances, he guides his ship and crew into the heart of a relic older than the galaxy itself—and find himself on the edge of an eternal war he never knew existed.
The Messenger must prepare for war.
With the Archetype damaged, Dash and his crew will need more than a quick fix to prepare for what’s coming.
A secret facility known only as the Forge lies in cold sleep, built by the Unseen for the greatest war in history. Dash has no idea what awaits him there, but he hopes to find some kind of advantage in the war that is to come.
The Forge is coming back online, weapons hot and searching known space for signs of the Golden.
When Dash and Leira repair a powerful scanner, it finds something unusual in a distant system—the remains of an ancient battlefield. Custodian tells of a fight lost long ago, leaving drifting debris around the faraway star.
As Dash and his team begin expanding the Forge, they must focus on Dark Metal as the one thing that can give them an advantage in the coming war.
Using drones and a map from an ancient library, Dash and Leira must seek out the source of a transmission coming from far away.
The Messeneger and his people continue their long fight against the Golden, but the war has just begun.
When they discover reports of a missing colony ship, their search will uncover a crime so terrible that the battle lines will be drawn in blood.
Deep below the waters of a world covered in ice, the key to Dark Metal awaits.
Along with it, a new threat that brings the war ever closer.
In order to stop it, the Messenger and his team must confront a familiar enemy in a new place, but now the stakes are higher, and the battle’s results will echo across the galaxy for ages to come.
The Verity are attacking, and no one is safe.
Now at home in the Aquarian system, Dash and his team receive news from a dying ship. With thirty systems under their inhuman control, the newest enemy to free life in the galaxy seeks to engage and destroy the Messenger by any means necessary.
Dash and the Realm are done playing defense. Now, they’ll take the war to the Golden.
With new, more lethal weapons being added at every turn, the Forge goes into motion, advancing across the galactic arm in furious combat, leaving wreckage in the wake.
The galaxy itself is under siege, and only the Messenger can save it.
The Verity are in collapse. Clan Shirna is gone. And all along, the ships of the Cygnus Realm have been pushing back until only the Golden are left.
Or so Dash thought.
Across a gulf of shattered stars, the final battle is about to begin.
With the Realm advancing, Dash and his allies are faced with the full might of an enemy designed for one thing: to end all life.
Now, spreading among the new worlds of the Unseen gates, Dash and his people are building new lives, free of war and destruction.
Until one of the former Unseen planets shifts in orbit—a small thing, but worth looking into.
The war continues past the galaxy’s edge.
Far out in the black, Dash and new captain Lomas encounter the next lethal version of Deeper technology. Huge, armored beings are attacking inward, wrecking humanity in each shattering conflict. The Battle Princes are more than robots, and less than human, and beyond their fearsome ability, they carry a secret that could change the nature of human warfare forever.
Victory begins with an idea, and that idea forms in the place between galaxies.
