Overview

Determined to revitalize her imploding career, blacklisted movie star Ashley V takes on her biggest role yet: posing as one of ten scientists invited by aliens to a universal summit. But when the aliens seize, strip and implant the entire delegation to extract their knowledge, she is quickly found out and sent to a cell to await recycling.

The alien research director designated ZXQ-One devised a plan to let the humans volunteer their best and brightest in a gamble to solve his people's energy crisis. But he fails to find anything useful and winds up imprisoned alongside the fiery human woman who refuses to give up, and who insists on calling him Sam.

After an accidental link between their implants lets them share their thoughts, they find themselves drawn to each other. Sam will have to trust in her human compassion and forgiveness for his role in her capture, and Ashley will have to trust him with her deepest secrets if they are to have any chance at survival…

Read an Excerpt

What a great idea! This book is organized in a manner very similar to a "real" tourbook, containing chapters titled like "Transportation, Lodging and Food," "Athletics and Recreation," and "Daytrips to Nearby Sites." What differs substantially from modern tourbooks is that this tour guide is set in the year 340 B.C. (said year being chosen as it portrays the city when it was still an enormous political power as well as a cultural model.) Modern day units of measurement are used for ease of understanding for young readers. Black-and-white photographs add to its authenticity. The first chapter discusses the history of ancient Athens and the end of the book contains a top-notch bibliography and suggestions for further research. This book would be an excellent resource for reports or to pull in reluctant history students who may bite at the clever presentation and not even realize how much factual information they are absorbing by reading this volume. The author, who is a historian, has written many books relative to the ancient Greek world, as well as literary companions to works of Homer and Sophocles. He and his wife live in Massachusetts. Part of "The Travel Guide" series that also includes, but is not limited to, titles pertaining to Renaissance Florence, Ancient Alexandria and the California Gold Country. Highly recommended for classroom or library use. 2003, Lucent Books/The Gale Group,
