YES – In the Khekarian series, I do indulge in sci-fi high-tech battles and clashes – Not yet hostile armies screaming over the horizons (well, just a bit), but certainly one-on-one situations as things heat up and tensions mount.
There’s a lot at stake. Control over the entire galaxy, for starters, plus various individuals wanting commanding positions, including Imperial Crowns. It’s a battle of extreme importance between two empires, the Khekarians on one side, who want to take it all, and the Chiddran on the other, who want to just hang on to their own.
The Terrans, who have colonized a mere sliver of the galaxy, are in possession of a planet on which there is an alien life-form that could tip the balance and deliver ultimate power to one empire or the other.
Both the Khekarians and the Chiddran know about this new species, both sides are exploring how to connect with and use the potential they can see. It’s a race against time. The Terrans, ignorant or unbelieving, have no chance to stop either side from taking full advantage, and quite possibly the planet, as well.
Can a small band of Terrans stop the aggressive Khekarians from dominating the galaxy?
There’s only one way to find out.
Books 1 and 2 are available in Kindle and paperback (click HERE). Book 3 is currently underway and will be available in October 2014.
I’ve loved writing these books. You’re going to love reading these books. What more can I say?
Sounds very interesting. I haven’t read sci-fi for some time, more into fantasy.
Thanks, Christine, I actually began writing sci-fi because I didn’t enjoy reading it as a child. I liked the idea of spaceships and colonized worlds, but I hated how serious the sci-fi was back then. Future people were presented as having no humor and not much in the way of adventure – I wanted adventure and aliens!
Of course, now I’ve been accused of writing fantasy because I have a psychic in the series and aliens who live in a dimension neighboring ours, so can appear and disappear at will. I still call it science fiction, though. Star Wars used “the Force” and Star Trek had “mind meld” and they count as sci-fi, so mine certainly can. Cheers! 🙂
These days, now that the genre definition isn’t so broad, sci-fi is supposed to conform to the known scientific rules or possibilities. Yours does seem bordering on fantasy. I wouldn’t be so hasty to dismiss the tag, as you might miss out on potential readers. Just a thought.
Hi Christine. I actually list my series both as sci-fi and fantasy, because so many people don’t know that the non-physical world is actually recognized in some branches of science. That why I have “The Noetic Universe” way down in the right hand margin of my blog. Other dimensions are also accepted within the realms of Quantum Physics.
Scientific rules are broken all over the place in science fiction. Mr Spock’s mind-meld, for instance, and his non-humor is an error as humor is actually a sign of intelligence. Star Wars has the Force, of course, and is not listed as fantasy. Teleport, also, which features in mine, too, isn’t scientifically sound (yet).
I’m actually about to repost an oldie on that very subject! 😀
Oh good, that latest post is an oldie! For a second there I thought I had incited a rant. Sounds like you know exactly what you have. I keep forgetting to say how much I love your header photos, stunning.
Actually, I’ve been pulling up a few oldies and reworking them to keep them fresh. No, never a rant, people are free to put my work into whatever bracket they prefer.
Thanks for loving my banner photos – I love ’em, too. 😀
