Death rides the solar winds as the Deintus, the grey aliens of Earthís lore, strike at the heart of the New Spanish Empireís outposts. An Empire built on exploration and nonviolence stands helpless against this space borne threat. How can the Empire defend itself? Where can they go for help? The answer is supplied by the Jesuit Order of the New Catholic Church, make an expedition back to the Old World and bring back answers that will save the Empire and the Church. Anna, now Warren Officer Angelica Suarez, has sworn a pledge to avenge her people. She must grow up faster now on their journey and take command of her emotions and the mission to see to its success.

you need to work on your commas!
Other than that; I like the idea! Please note me, when you've edited this! Would really like to read the rest then!

Rate my novel Scira?

Suggestion: Chapter 2 consists just of a narrative description of background information. Can you think of a way to jump right into the action and dialogue and let and reveal this gradually? (As i noticed in later chapters.) Your book does need some polishing but that is normal so don't get discouraged. Writing is a skill people must learn but imagination is something else - either you have it or you don't.
P.S.: Like everyone else on this website, I have books of my own to promote. I would love to find out if you have any interest in them.

The story seems interesting, but it needs a lot of work. I'd suggest submitting chapters, perhaps two at a time since they're short, to the Writer's Digest critique group for critiques. You'll get a lot of very valuable suggestions and insights.
