About the Book

Tasked with exploring an anomaly in space, Icelandic transhuman twins Jón and Ásta along with the crew of Átt, make first contact with a species seeking passage through the solar system. They learn of an ancient, ongoing, intergalactic confrontation, between the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy and Milky Way.

As galaxies merge, territorial conflicts have been reignited. And, it’s consuming civilizations.
Allying with the knowledgeable Framandi, the crew undertake a multi-system journey, confronting the advanced Gigils, a species that could devastate Earth. The alliance salvages a relic Kilig infiltration spacecraft, leftover from an ancient battle, and installs a second-generation human AI named Kei to operate the ship. 

Merging with the existing AI aboard the Kilig vessel, Kei’s objectives change as it realizes that wetware enhances its abilities. The AI attempts to infiltrate and subjugate Framandi and Gigil minds; then turns its attention to Earth.

Now, all independent, intelligent life is vulnerable. Jón and Ásta must overcome vastly superior odds, to protect the world they love.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Rashid Ahmed is a compelling new voice within science fiction adventure. The Framandi Alliance is a wonderful first insight into the mind of this emerging author. The characters are well developed and fleshed out to make the action believable but also importantly so the reader can engage with them. There is a fantastical element to the storyline and yet it also feels quite plausible and somewhat frightening. Well written and enjoyable to read.[...]" - Anthony Redden

- "What impressed me most about this story was the author’s knowledge and incorporation of a wide array of biological, scientific, metallurgical, molecular, astrophysical, AI, quantum computing, trans-human, space tech, and advanced weaponry details seamlessly and believably woven throughout. You think: Is this science-fiction? Or science-forecasting?  - Amazon

- "The world of this book is so extensive, the characters are enthralling and the story is simply soul-gripping.[...]" - Valerie (Amazon)

- "I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to the author’s next offering. Rogue AI, alternate history, genetic engineering, deep space travel, aliens, conspiracy, intrigue, and worm holes.[...]" - Laurence Nelson Oliver
