Book Description

"McElhaney's story telling is deft, well-paced, and with an ear for conversation" ~ Beacon Journal Book Review

"[McElhaney] slipped in under the radar and firmly established himself as a fresh new voice in science fiction before anyone had a chance to react. By then it was too late and nearly every sci-fi fan who owned a Kindle had already discovered this unknown and was actively searching him out." ~Associated Content

Over 175,000 copies of his books have been downloaded worldwide!
-Book 2 of the Mystic Saga-
In McElhaney’s first book of the groundbreaking Mystic Saga “Indentured”, the Colonial Establishment Cruiser “Pioneer” discovered a major fault in their experimental Jump Drive. Though it served its purpose by sending the ship across 24 light years in what felt like a mere instant, its failures were a little less noticeable.

Now, in his second book of bestselling serial, the USSC sends a follow-up ship to the Beta-Hydri system in order to investigate what happened to their missing cruiser, the USSC Pioneer. The investigation brings them to a planet named Legacy where an Earth colony appears to have been thriving for hundreds of years – much longer than the few decades they expected if it indeed was the Pioneer Colony. To add to the confusion, the colony appears to have forgotten their roots over the centuries, so the shuttles of the USSC Foothold aren’t welcomed in the way they’d expect.

The crew of the Foothold is about to learn that a lot can change when you’re forced to adapt to a different environment. But could the changes involve the development of the unusual electrical defense mechanism of the Mystics? Why are there two human civilizations on Legacy and why does one group of people have the ability to throw lightning?

A serial novel published in the tradition of 50's sci-fi pulp brought to you by the Xulon Award winning author of Mommy's Choice, One Crazy Summer, Indentured, and Dominion. Now Scott McElhaney is making most of his novels available to Kindle readers at the very accessible price of only 99 cents. Book three of the Mystic Saga "Violation" is now available at the same low price as all the rest!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mystic Saga rocks!!! May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book, Indentured. The second book, Legacy, was probably one of the most exciting short Sci-Fi novels that I have had the pleasure of reading. It had everything I could possibly ask for... Great plot, fantastic characters, time travel, FTL technology, causuality and thrilling action. I can't wait for the third installment!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought at first I was reading about space travel, then colonization, then first contact; then it turned into a time travel/paradox exploration. Filled with interesting ideas.

The author, Scott McElhaney, knows how to write a good scifi book (at least one that caters to my needs). Again, all of the Mystic Saga books are $0.99 so how can you go wrong?

Would I recommend this book to a friend: Yes
Would I read more books by this author: Yes

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!! July 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you love Sci Fi this is a book for you. I am a very slow reader but I love the fact that it is very interesting. To me this story is not a predicted one. Most books you can guess what will happen. This book really different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concept June 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of the currently available Mystic Saga titles and plan on reading any additional ones. This is a series that continually gives you "aha" type moments due to the interesting concepts involved including, cloning and physics-laden time travel. Definitely recommend...but start at book one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Over priced for what you get June 30, 2012
By Niloc
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although the writing style was ok the story and tech was superficial and flawed. it's all a bit simple (let's make the bad guys come from a remote part of the planet....). I did read to the end but only just.
At one stage our heroes were on the abandon ship and attacked the pirate ship. They use escape pods fitted with explosives and unconscious clones because there is a rule that all ships must rescue any escape pods. Apart from the fact that this is an incredibly low act (using surrender and rescue rules to blow up the other guy) the systems existence is stupid to the extreme.
The first book was much better.

More About the Author

Scott's first novel, Mommy's Choice, was originally published in paperback under the pseudonym Scott Curtis. In under a year on the bookshelves, that novel won the Xulon Book Award for romantic suspense. When Scott moved to a different publisher and started making his novels available to Kindle readers, he returned to his real name and reduced the prices to the absolute minimum allowed by Amazon.
Scott McElhaney currently resides in Ohio with his wife and two sons. He still maintains a full-time job as a credit supervisor at Matco Tools Corporate Office where he has worked for over 16 years. Although his books didn't become available to Kindle readers until December 2011, over 200,000 digital copies have been purchased to date and he still maintains a position in the top 100 worldwide in the "Sci-fi Space Opera" category.
