‘The Expedition of Yira’ By Haley M. Forté

In the deep expanse of space, a violet planet hung idly between two moons.

Dr. Tal Ashr is on a mission to discover the mystery that surrounds the planet of Yira, a distant world that has sat dormant for centuries. Or so some believed. When Dr. Ashr recruits his cousin Kol, a former solider of the Galatic Forces, and Dr. Anson Moreau, a professor of Galatic History, the trio ventures to the planet’s surface in search of a legend. What they find may not be simply just a rumor after all.
