Power Initiates by Richard Ross #22

Power Initiates is the first book of the Cosmic Endeavor series. The series takes inspiration from classic science fiction stories and mixes it with the excitement of superhero action in a unique mix that will leave you wanting more. Power Initiates was awarded a 2020 B.R.A.G Medallion, marking this book is perfect for any fan of science fiction.


After discovering the key to interstellar travel, humanity has become a civilization cultivating many planets, but not everyone is living in paradise. When a terrorist conflict crosses the border into the United Republic’s territory, it uncovers the first remnants of a lost alien civilization. It’s now up to a soldier and a diplomat gifted with psychic powers to uncover the conspiracy behind their disappearance, which now threatens life as they know it.

Race Allard always knew he was different. The world around him always seemed to follow in predictable patterns that only he could see. Coming of age, Race applied for citizenship with the United Galactic Republic. Forced into the Space Marines Corp, Race attempted to avoid combat by requesting a research position. The military’s rebuttal was a unique assignment in special ops, hoping to make use of his ability to detect dangers and prevent threats to the government.

Sensitive to other’s emotions, Illandra Page used her gifts to be the center of every social gathering. Working with people or crowds came as second nature to her. Illandra’s skills were rewarded with an invitation to the United Republic’s diplomatic program, where her abilities to read people would be an asset to the government in negotiations and unraveling foreign plots.

About the Author:

Richard has been a fan of Science Fiction and Fantasy all his life, literally. His mom will tell you stories of how the only thing that would keep him quiet as a baby was reruns of the original Star Trek. There are even rumors he was born early so that he could celebrate being born the same year Star Wars first showed in theaters.

Richard is an extremely creative person and loves using his skills to build fictional worlds. After years of exposure to fiction literature and films, he felt the urge to take the inspiration and make a story of his own. Thus, he started down the path of becoming an author and started the book series known as A Cosmic Endeavor.

Richard lives in Southern California, where he moved after leaving the US Marine Corps. He is married to Paola Ross, who he thanks every day for her divine-like tolerance of his crazy shenanigans. Richard has two children, Trenton and Kayla.
