Star Hawk by Mack Maloney

Star Hawk #1


7200 AD. Earth is the center of a vast galactic empire. A militaristic state governed by stern repression. The Specials, an extended family that has wielded power for nearly two thousand years, control the galaxy with iron fisted zeal. After generations of genetic manipulation they are virtually immortal, as is their rule.

On an isolated planet, on the very fringe of the galaxy, lives a pilot named Hawk Hunter. He designs his own ships, using strange technology-but he cannot explain his abilities or his knowledge. His past is a mystery, even to himself. But now Hawk's talents have been discovered.

And in the Earth Race, a state sponsored gladiatorial contest that pits pilot against pilot, and earns both winner and sponsor unimaginable wealth. He will not only test the limits of his endurance, but begin to learn the truth of his identity.
