Omni Legends – The Commander: Guardian of Utopia
Date Published: January 5, 2021
Welcome to Utopia—humanity’s second home for over two centuries. It is a
world controlled by the military and corporations,
waging war with advanced alien races, but 18-year-old Carter Sanders is
about to change the rules of the game.
Freshly conscripted into boot camp, he needs all his brains and ability to
survive skirmishes and develop allies among his fellow-recruits who resent
his privilege. Training exercises in weaponry, close-quarter combat,
strategy and tactics, and missions test his bravery, while female recruits
test his moral fiber in close situations.
When bionic upgrades for soldiers become mandatory, Carter feels he needs
to take a stand. Can he and his mismatched fellow-recruits get their message
about preserving morale through to the top brass? Will they survive sadistic
drill sergeant Banes before they’re sent off to battle giant, scaled Lorgans
on unknown worlds?
The Commander – Guardian of Utopia is
the first book in the US version of the epic New Adult military sci-fi
fantasy Omni Legends series.

weeks old, returning periodically to see two aunts. He fell in love with the
openness of Americans and the non-judgmental environment that accepted him
for who he was — a gamer and a nerd. Passionate about the English language,
Kevin mastered it by reading, watching movies, playing video games, and
After high school, Kevin apprenticed as an industrial clerk, and then

philosophical questions with his girlfriend. He also loves recording his
audio books and mastering accents. Russian-accented English is one of his
best. He is a member of the German “Autorenwelt” community of
selfpublishers, as well as “Lovelybooks,” a network for organizing book
clubs and readings.
