    Five Moons: Resurrection is science-fiction with the full flavor and robust action of a guns-blazing western. At the same time, the comedy of human nature balances the drama in this end-to-end action adventure.

The alien enigmas of this ship engulf Dallas as he struggles to overcome his grief at the loss of his entire family. Dallas discovers that his artificial crew are all copies (called moons) of the human crew lost during the ship’s last mission as the Five Moons sets out to rescue Emma, an innocent young girl. The Mercs had killed her parents and kidnapped Emma for a monthly ransom in gold to keep her alive.
    In order to rescue Emma, Dallas needs help. So, he goes to Moss Kata to find Luke and Sam, but they all end up in jail. Mariah breaks the men out of jail. Dallas is nearly killed.
    The Five Moons arrives at the jungle planet only to discover Dallas’ old nemesis in orbit, but Dallas refuses to turn back. He’s determined to save one little girl. To save Emma, though, Dallas must first save a young jungle girl, Sophie. She guides Dallas’ squad through the jungle trails to find Emma.
    But that’s where Dallas and the crew of the Five Moons run out of luck. For all that they got right, they are put on the run by an entire Merc Battlegroup commanded by the man that gave the order to kill Dallas’ whole family. In the end, only Dallas Blake and the crew of the Five Moons can save Panara-5, their homeworld, from total annihilation at the hands of the Mercs. This one’s a nail-biter right down to the end.

    Detective Sam Benson, a native New Yorker, is brash, opinionated and candid. Transplanted to work on Earth’s first colonized planet, he envisions a relatively peaceful job. But Benson’s ruthless nature might bring it to the brink of annihilation when a series of murders begins. He suspects a non-human is responsible-an android who once shared engrams with a psychopathic human. However, the detective doesn’t know other non-humans once called his new world-theirs. And as Benson obsesses with making a case against the android, he is oblivious to their return and the reason why they consider machines to be their gods.
