Deep in space lay a weird and threatening world. And it was there that Ben Sessions found the evil daughters . . .

h it into an immense room. At the far end of the room was a throne, and on it a woman. Ben blinked. As well proportioned as the others he had seen, she was half again as tall, twice as beautiful. He could not contain a gasp of appreciation.

Thick violet hair fell almost to her shoulders, her skin was luminous and flawless, her body breathtaking, more revealed than concealed by a clinging gown of some filmy material. At her breast, flashed a single violet jewel larger by far than the famed sapphires of Uranus.

"I brought him as soon as he awakened," said the woman with Ben.

A malevolent stare from the woman on the throne rested on Ben. "It was unnecessary," she said. "We have no further need of him. Take him to the field."

"Wait a minute," Ben snapped.

"You are addressing Arndis, Queen of Teris," he heard his escort say.

"I don't give a hoot . . ." He never finished the sentence. From behind the hairy slave seized him, lifted him and flung him bodily toward the doors.

Reader Reviews

Average Rating of 2 from 2 reviews: **
Jeff Wang

The beginnings of a good story ruined by a rushed and simplistic ending. You want regret skipping this one.

Sardo Weems

A mediocre Sci-fi adventure story, weak on the science. An accidental discovery of a metal (which exists nowhere in the known universe) used to repair his space ship sends our hero into the trackless wastes of the galaxy where nothing should exist where he finds bloodthirsty 10 foot tall women bent on blah, blah, blah.

The writing (plot, characterization) is mundane, the story is just a tale of one space jockey living by his wits to try to survive and save the universe.

Author of the Day

Elin Barnes
Elin Barnes has done many different things in her life, like being a flight instructor, working for a criminal appeals lawyer and working for many big name technology companies in Silicon Valley (Microsoft, Google etc.). But the one thing that she never thought would actually happen is to write (and finish) a book. Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series. As our author of the day, Barnes reveals why she picked Silicon Valley as the backdrop, her inspiration behind writing a biomedical thriller and how she went for ride-alongs with the San Jose Police Department.
