Bears take center stage in Charles & Irene Nickerson’s action-packed novel, The Legend Begins: A Beary Maxumus Adventure. Demonstrating their brilliant imagination and storytelling prowess, the authors take readers on a journey into Bearilian Space, a fictional cluster of star system, where an epic tale of might and valor is about to unfold.

Bearilian Space is on the cusp of a new age of technological advancement brought about by the “Saber Claw”, a New Destroyer armed with new attacks and electronic warfare jump ships. At the foreground stands Beary, a young Bearilian Astrofleet Cadet who hides an extraordinary secret. He is actually the title character, Dr. Beary Maxumus, who, at just 15 years old, designed the Warp Engines that the New Destroyer is using.

Beary keeps his amazing achievements a secret and wishes to be just another cadet, but all that is about to change. In The Legend Begins, the young hero is thrust into an adventure that will change not just his life but quite possibly the history of his world.

Filled with page-turning action, unexpected romance and a host of unforgettable characters, The Legend Begins is a breathtaking odyssey into magnificent realms, the kind that is possible only in the most exquisite fiction.

This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Niagara Falls, N.Y. on September 25 – 28, 2013.
