Ever Upward, by George Sirois
Book 2 in The Excelsior Journey
An ancient foe. A divided planet. An impossible choice to make.
The evil Nocterar is defeated, and the planet saved. But if Excelsior thinks the worst is over, he has another thing coming–quite literally!
Things aren’t going well on Denab IV. And when it transpires that the link he kept with earth could destroy both planets, even some of Excelsior’s own people start doubting him.
With Hodera on the march leading a deadly new army and an ancient foe rising more powerful than ever, everything both Matthew and Excelsior love is on the brink of destruction.
Denab IV’s savior must make a choice. One that cuts him to the very core of his being.
But time is running out, and Excelsior must hurry if he is to get the chance to throw the dice one more time.
