Detailed Plot Synopsis of Asgard's Conquerors



Five Star, Dec 2004, 25.95, 275 pp.
ISBN 1584142092

Asgard is a gigantic man-made artificial world consisting of many different levels each area containing habitats with their own eco-systems. Up until recently, nobody could get past level five, but Mike Rousseau was able to go to the lower levels using a guide book left to him by his friend. He opened up many of the levels and as a result became a very rich man. After spending a quarter of a century on Asgard, Mike wanted to see Earth but he was arrested and forced to join the Space Force.

No sooner does Mike leave Asgard than he returns as a draftee in the Space Force. The Scardia, invaders from the thirty levels, invade Shychain City, the base built on Asgard's surface. This angered the alien Tetrax who control the activities in and on Asgard. They know Mike knows more than anyone else about Asgard and they want him to spy for them. When he encounters the Scardia, he realizes they are technologically primitive and can't operate the machinery in Shychain city. When they capture Mike, he believes they will kill him but operatives of the Nine, another alien entity, rescue him in the hopes that he can broker a peace treaty between all the interested parties.
