The Great Connection: Worlds in Waiting

By Garry Abbott

Sci-Fi, Young adult | Paperback, eBook


Following an unfortunate incident involving a delivery drone, a fishing net, and a very tall tree, Raif Masters finds himself forced by his overprotective alpha parents to spend his last school holiday exploring extraterrestrial worlds in "The Great Connection": a real-time simulation of the observable universe, rendered into virtual reality home entertainment. But Raif, a "child of three", is not alone. Terry, bound to the service of the Masters family, is looking forward to a very early retirement after one last summer looking after his young charge. Together they meet Cinder, a fellow simunaught who is seeking a crew to share a secret discovery from the other side of the galaxy that could change Earth's future forever. But are some discoveries best left unconnected?
