The future isnt what they expected. A company of Army Rangers is sent on an interstellar colony ship to secure a foothold on a dangerous, alien planet through violence of action. Leaving behind a warring Earth flung headfirst into a conflict of mutual assured destruction, the Rangers and the accompanying crew of first colonists are guided on a 40-year journey by an unprecedented artificial intelligence. But when they emerge from the frigid embrace of cryosleep, they awake to a nightmare, finding themselves greeted by the same ruthless enemy that brought about the ruin of Earth. Alone on a dangerous, alien planet and with no hope of rescue or relief, the military colonists are forced to finish the war they thought theyd left behind. And in an unknown galaxy, friends and enemies alike prove to be much more than they seem. Wayward Galaxy is an explosive military science-fiction adventure featuring defective AIs, valorous soldiers, a brilliant scientist, and gritty combat written by Jason Anspach (Associated Press best seller and cocreator of Galaxys Edge) and J.N. Chaney (USA Today best seller and author of the Renegade series).

If the worlds problems feel overwhelming and making a difference seems impossible, youre not alone. So many of us wish we could be doing something good and purposeful, but we get stuck. We think that what we do wont matter, or that well do it wrong, or that we dont have enough time or resources to begin with.
