An epic space opera/fantasy based on Homer's Odyssey, and the first in a new series called "Stars Reach." Imagine if the Odyssey were told from Telemachus' point of view—set in space. The story follows Roth, the son of an infamous war hero, Grey Soleis. When Grey suddenly goes MIA, Roth and his mother, Alora, must struggle against forces that would erase their identities and tear their family apart. Breaking Colossus is about a family separated by war, striving to repair itself against insurmountable odds.
