Shackleton’s Folly is the first book in the series. “With extinction nearly at hand, Alec Shackleton must unravel the secrets of a legend, and find deliverance for humanity.
Alec’s father taught him that a human tribe, long before their time, had ventured to the stars in search of a new home. That lost tribe is the key to human salvation.
But the galaxy has been ripped apart by feuding factions, including the rancorous Koty horde, led by a traitor to the human race, Wolfgang Gray. He dances to the Koty’s military march.
Alec’s mission to save humanity will have a terrible cost.”

Death brought Dancer to this backward world. There was a 5.9862% chance success.
