 The SAR chose genetic enhancement to put them on a fast-track path to spiritual enlightenment, then disaster struck and their world fell apart. Stripped of technical ability and unable to change things, the SAR quickly devolved into a simple society, one that was now increasingly telepathically linked. This brings its own problems and Sentinels, or Watchers evolved to help keep society on an even keel. For the most part it was working, but like all systems is not foolproof and injustices flare regularly.

Aaron is a 'wild talent' one of a growing number, but considerably stronger than the norm so represents a threat to a large influential group that want to control society for their own gain. There are other factors that put Aaron into grave danger, but by learning to manage himself he might provide the means with which to assert a more moderate solution, Outcast from his own people, he must first survive an attack of Grith, large predators that hunt by night. Can he harness that which is required to save himself? 

Aaron, First Watcher is the first in a new series of standalone novels, The SAR Chronicles will trace the history of an alien civilisation that interfaces with Earth in such a way as to bring to light the very question of what it means to be human, especially in the 21st century. And why nothing we believe should ever be taken for granted.
