After his heroic battle against the Deathlords on the Ghost Planet, Jack Finnegan is looking forward to arriving at Omnicron Prime, the capitol planet of the Galactic Regalus Empire -the largest and most advanced civilization in the universe.

Things are looking bright for Jack. He has his unconventional group of friends, his mystical spaceship, and the girl of his dreams -Princess Anna. Not to mention a secret mission that could save Earth and everyone he cares about.

But things get complicated when he arrives at Omnicron. Not only is Jack uncomfortable being thrust into the spotlight for his courageous actions to save the universe, but he soon finds life in the Empire isn't everything he'd dreamed it would be.

His friends abandon him to pursue their own interests. Greedy and cunning politicians conspire to steal his spaceship. Even his relationship with Anna is strained now that she's gone from being "the girl next door" to the most powerful woman in the universe.

But beneath all that lies a new and terrifying threat from the Deathlords. A threat that grows in secret, slowly spreading throughout the Regalus Empire like a plague, and it threatens to destroy from within the only thing powerful enough to stop the Deathlords and their malicious rampage throughout the galaxy -the Empire itself.

Worst of all -Jack is the only one who knows about this new threat, and no one will believe his warnings.

Suddenly, the Empire is no longer safe for Jack and his friends. Even the people they've come to rely on the most can no longer be trusted. As those he's sworn to protect turn against him, how can Jack hope to save the day?

Fighting the Deathlords was one thing. Fighting the "good guys" is quite another. Will Jack be able to find the strength to be the hero the universe needs?

Or will he finally be defeated by this Secret Army?

From Chapter 2

     Anna bit her lip nervously.  Something she always did that was so cute, it practically made Jack’s heart melt.  “I don’t know how to say this,” Anna said.  “I’ve been trying to figure out a way to bring it up, but… it never seemed like the right time.”
     “Hey, whatever it is, you can tell me,” said Jack.  “No time like the present!”
     Anna sighed.  “Look, Jack…” she said.  “You’re a great guy…”
     Uh-oh, thought Jack, as alarm bells suddenly started ringing in his ears.
     “You’re smart, and funny… and I have the best time hanging out with you…”
     What is this?  What’s happening right now???
     “…and you’ve done so much for me that I could never repay.  You’ll always have a special place in my heart…”
     Holy crap – she’s not… is she?  She is, isn’t she???
     “But for now, I really think it would be best…”
     Don’t say it!  Don’t say it!!!  DON’T SAY IT!!!!!!!
     “…if we could just be friends?”
     In Jack’s head, Anna had just reached into his chest and laughed maniacally as she ripped his heart out, threw it on the floor, and then excitedly stomped on it with her foot.  Then a diseased dog had run up and eaten the smooshed heart.  Then it had pooped it out and eaten it again.  Then that dog had been eaten by an evil radioactive dinosaur.  Then that dinosaur had blown up, splattering bits of Jack’s smooshed poop-heart into oblivion.  When the smoke in his head cleared, Jack noticed he’d been quiet for longer than was comfortable, and Anna was staring at him nervously.
     “Um… Jack?” she asked.  “Is that okay with you?”
     “Yeah… y’know… that’s cool,” stammered Jack.  “We can totally be friends.  I mean, we’re already friends, right?  So… no big deal!”
     This is such a big deal… grumbled Jack in his head.
