“We are all concerned about what we’re doing to our planet,” Menard says. “If we do not adjust our thinking and habits quite likely this fictional story may someday become our reality.”

A group of explorers from Earth find themselves in a distant world and must struggle to survive in the second installment of author Lawrence Menard’s Vanguard Chronicles, “The Collective Legacy: Book Two of The Vanguard Chronicles Saga” (published by Trafford Publishing).

Picking up where 2012’s “The Vanguard Chronicles” left off, “The Collective Legacy” tells the exciting story of a group of refugees from a dead planet Earth who have been launched into deep space to find a new home world. Naïve and unprepared, they must learn to adapt to an alien environment that challenges all they thought they knew about themselves. As they try to come to grips with their newfound realities, they learn to be survivors while maintaining their family values and sense of humor.

“We are all concerned about what we’re doing to our planet,” Menard says. “If we do not adjust our thinking and habits quite likely this fictional story may someday become our reality.”

Praise for “The Collective Legacy”:

“The technology is interesting, the characters are friendly, and the action is engaging in this enjoyable sci-fi adventure book. Readers who appreciate military tactics, space battles, politics, and lively characters will feel right at home on these pages." — The U.S. Review of Books
