About Wayward Guardian by Arlin Fehr
Mankind has entered a new age of technology. Sophisticated A.I. entities called Guardians, and their cybernetic enhanced companions, the Advocates, ensure a level of efficiency and progress never before seen by humans. Humans now stretch across the stars, in an effort to meet up with their unexpected benefactors, the Xozon, who helped make the Guardian a reality.
Of course, no new age is without it’s growing pains. There are those who oppose it, those who embrace it, and sometimes just those who are stuck in the middle, trying to survive.
The crew of the Azure Dream, a colony ship destined for the furthest reaches of space, find themselves in the middle of a conflict only possible because of this new age. Captain Howard Fredrick must keep his wits about him if he’s to get everyone safely to their new home, or risk becoming a casualty of progress.
