The Cortex by Peter J Maher
The Cortex is the story of ordinary people being forced to confront extraordinary events. It describes a quest to confront the face of evil against all odds. It is a multi-layered and historically rich science fiction story wrapped around a love story and a war story on a Galactic scale. It redefines evil as entity born out of benevolence. A creature of nightmare spawned at the dawn of time reborn and instilled with insidious malevolence and a desire for revenge and retribution.
Set against a backdrop of wide-ranging events the story is reduced to one small group of desperate companions moving through a Galaxy torn apart by a genocidal war. And one girl in particular bound to a seemingly impossible quest she journeys to the very edge of known space to face her destiny.
Although it is a stand alone story, there is an upcoming prequel which deals with the background mythology described in the first book. There will also be a third and final book continuing the story outlined in the first book, though of course all three novels are distinct in their own right and tell different stories set within a familiar universe.
Peter J Maher is a writer of science fiction novels and creator of the Coalition Book Series currently living in England.
