Pre-Order Abendau’s Legacy…

Jo“ABENDAU’S HEIR is the first in a trilogy by Jo Zebedee. It follows the story of Kare, the son of a ruthless Empress who has been chosen to lead after her, and his struggle to escape her clutches and bring freedom to the empire. This is a hard-hitting novel that pulls no punches when looking at the consequences of putting your head above the parapet and standing up to a dictator. Kare’s character is developed in psychological detail from childhood to freedom fighter, with a well-drawn cast of back-up characters behind him. The writing style is clear and concise, with little in the way of purple prose, and the story takes the familiar SF path of good vs evil, but with believable, rounded characters on both sides.

This book could function as a standalone, with a sufficiently satisfying end, but it raises enough questions for a series. I’m looking forward to the next.”

SUNSET OVER ABENDAU – “First off, I loved the first book of the Inheritance Trilogy, Abendau’s Heir. It was one of my favorite books of last year, but this book just raised the level so high, that I have no idea how Zebedee will top it! Where Heir builds up the story, the history, the struggle, spanning over a few decades, Sunset flashes forward to ten years after Heir’s events. The book takes place at a monumental time in the Empire’s history, and all happens over the course of a few days. Zebedee’s writing is so good, and I loved how there was a balance to her first book, which has been called grimdark space opera. This one touched on some of those themes but left us with hope, and isn’t that what it’s all about?”

Space – The Zeborian Singularity…

So the first of the Space books: Space – Houston We Have a Problem is in the bag. The last batch of stories will be read by next week and authors will be notified.

So what next – good point?

Space – The Zeborian Singularity.

Premise is:

“In 1947 an alien craft crash-landed on Earth and the spaceship and its occupants were quickly taken to Area 51. Sadly, the aliens died but not before revealing who they were and what they stood for.

Over the next forty years NASA engineers back-engineered a device found onboard.

On January 28, 1986 the system was loaded onto the Shuttle Challenger and would be tested in space by the crew. The experiment was highly classified.

Sadly, the unconnected explosion activated the Zeborian Matrix and a singularity close to Earth formed. The wormhole provided an easy and quick way to move across galaxies and find new worlds but also it made it more accessible for Alien races to visit and possibly attack Earth.”

So once your ship either goes through the singularity or a ship comes to Earth – your story can start from there. No lines to include in this one.
