ALTAIR HALL AND THE KEY OF WORLDS
by I.T. Madsenhttps://www.authonomy.com/book/296529/
A young boy must open a portal to travel across the galaxy and defend his family line against an overlord who seeks to eliminate them all.
Altair hasn't been out of his county since he was an infant. He doesn’t understand the constellations, or how to use a sextant to position and launch a rocket. Altair only knows his unfortunate life on a farm run by overbearing, but mostly absent, foster parents. The kids at school think he is an alien. He has never even kissed a girl.
When Altair discovers his real mother, sick from radiation poisoning and hiding in a dormant space craft, he embarks on an adventure to discover his past and make his family whole. An adventure that will take him – and all who dare read along – to an ancient and dangerous world of advanced technology, alien life, and a prophecy that could change the universe, for good or evil. All this, while being pursued by those who would have him killed because of his heritage.
