Hi Brigaders. My second novel Children of Scarabaeusfrom Harper Voyager hits bookstores today! It's the sequel to Song of Scarabaeus, a sci-fi adventure with a touch of romance. The sequel amps up that romance as Edie and Finn, forced by a "leash" to stick together, attempt to escape the clutches of the Crib empire only to be captured and drawn back into its nefarious plans.
Head over to my blog and follow my blog tour for chances to win the book and other cool things. You can read the first few chapters of the book here.
Edie Sha'nim believes she and her bodyguard lover, Finn, could find refuge from the tyranny of the Crib empire by fleeing to the Fringe worlds. But Edie's extraordinary cypherteck ability to manipulate the ecology of evolving planets makes her far too valuable to lose. Recaptured and forced to cooperate - or else she will watch Finn die - Edie is shocked to discover the Crib's new breed of cypherteck: children. She cannot stand by while the oppressors enslave the innocent, nor can she resist the lure of Scarabaeus, the first world she tried to save, when researchers discover what appears to be an evolving intelligence. But escape - for Edie, for Finn, and for the exploited young - will require the ultimate sacrifice... and a shocking act of rebellion.
