About the Darracia Saga
Schism: The Battle for Darracia: Book 1
On the planet Darracia, an ever-widening social gap between its inhabitants is causing turmoil that is fracturing a once peaceful world. Struggling with his identity, nineteen year old Prince V’sair must harness the power of the elusive Fireblade, the secret to a warrior’s heart, in order to overcome his uncle Staf Nuen’s lust for supremacy. Will the energy of the Elements guide the young prince to his true destiny or will Staf Nuen conquer Darracia? After the success of his first three books (Brood X, Stillwell, and The Hanging Tree) Michael is fulfilling a dream and creating his own epic fantasy world. Schism: The Battle for Darracia is the first book in a planned series.
Collision: The Battle for Darracia: Book 2
The Darracia saga continues with all the key players spread out and searching for answers throughout the solar system. Prince V’sair struggles to hold his fractured kingdom together without help from his family. His stepbrother Zayden is on a vengeful hunt for his evil uncle Staf Nuen. Tulani navigates her two worlds trying to bring them together. Staf Nuen, the orchestrator of the original coup, is making unholy alliances with nefarious new allies. Like the comet zipping across the horizon, all the different factions are heading for a collision course that will test both their faith and power.
Risen: The Battle for Darracia: Book 3
Imprisoned on the dead moon of Bina, trapped at the bottom of the cold Hixom Sea, locked in a cell in the flooded Desa and blinded & defeated in the Eastern Provinces, the ruling class of Darracia is defeated without hope. In the stunning conclusion of the Darracia saga, V’sair, Tulani, Zayden and Reminda must dig deep and find both strength and faith to rise from the depths of the impossible and restore order to their home planet from Lothen, Staf Nuen and the evil armies of Geva.

I grew up watching Star Trek and Star Wars, Buck Rogers, Lost in Space, Battlestar Galactica, etc. and have always loved anything science fiction. My brother & all his friends were sci-fi geeks and we had lots of fun back then!
It’s fun to see how things would be in scenerios of science based fiction. It’s so interesting to wrap your head around that realm that has been depicted and created with facts and fiction.

I love Sci-fi because of the special effects and the graphics are incredible and its something different -imaginative
You not only have to have a great imagination, but you also have to have a basic understanding of science for the technology in the story to work. Fantasy has dreamed up rules for nature, but sci-fic is definitely based on some scientific principle.
The depth of imagination. Books seem to come alive to me and sci-fi is just awesome.

I like the fact it can go anywhere – there are no limits vased on “facts”.
i like that there are no rules to it
What I like about science fiction is the limitless imagination of the stories and the technology and the characters. It gives me hope that some of the things that I read about in sci-fi when I was a kid in the ’60s are actually reality now like cell phones (Star Trek communicators), computers and the Internet.
I like the imagination!
Science Fiction is limitless and lets us use free reign of our imaginations!
