StarPassage Book Three: Honor & Mercy
Written by Clark Rich Burbidge; Illustrated by Karl Hepworth; Edited by Barbara Scott
Teenage Mike longs to help a struggling new patient who may hold dangerous secrets. An evil Tracker has escaped to the present, bringing with him plans to control the world. New and more deadly passages await. Is there a traitor in their midst already? How can they fight what they cannot see? Is it safe to use the relic at all? Or…does the relic have its own secret plan?
Join the growing band of travelers as they resist the powerful Trackers at every turn while trying to solve the relic’s riddles and guard against the ever-growing risk of betrayal. It’s a wild ride where hope and survival hang by a slender thread, woven by an ancient relic that becomes more mysterious with every page turned.
