Fifteen hundred years in the future, two neighboring worlds in a colonized system have devolved into medieval societies . One colony preys on the other, riding ancient ships across the interplanetary void to raid and plunder its neighbor. In one of those raids, Whit Alder is taken and sold into slavery on the marauder's home world: Thelos. The story is about Whit's determination to regain his freedom and the small group of characters drawn into his quest. Whit and his comrades band together to regain their liberty and hatch a plan that will ultimately alter the course of two worlds. The Raidships is a tale of young lives, caught up in the conflicts of a medieval society in a distant future. It is a novel that explores loss, friendship, honor—and ultimately—the price of courage in the face of evil.
