Revenge needs no salt to taste this good!

The sexy all-action heroine Milla Carter's breathtaking journey extends through outer-world "constructs", now visiting an African landscape smouldering with sexual heat and the odour of violence.

In this sequel to Body Holiday, Milla's war against the sinister Body Holiday Foundation and its twisted founder is more than just personal. She's out to destroy them both and, quite frankly, who can blame her? This outfit makes big bucks from normalising some of the most depraved forms of human behaviour. Nothing is off-limits where these creeps are concerned and they deserve every bit of what's coming.

SURREY LIFE: "Pearson possesses an extraordinary imagination that brilliantly assaults every variant of the sci-fi genre. His writing is vivid, urban and unflinching in its descriptions, taking the reader through Saturn's rings, outer-world "constructs" and altered perceptions.

This is hard hitting storytelling with full-on language and a brutally splendid plot twist, which, if you make it to the end, will leave you crossing your legs! "

About the Author

2016 FINALIST twice over at the Foreword Indies BOOK AWARDS, American Library Association Annual Conference, Chicago, 24 June 2017: • SCIENCE FICTION with Soul's Asylum - Star Weaver • FANTASY with GODS' Enemy THE SUN: "Soul's Asylum is a weird, vivid and creepy book, not for the faint hearted. But its originality and top writing make for a great read." In his Body Holiday adult sci-fi trilogy Pearson introduced readers to Milla Carter, a beautiful telepath and killer, whose adventures have continued in the Soul's Asylum trilogy. The last volume, The Swarm, was published 15 April 2017. With GODS' Enemy Pearson introduced readers to the enigmatic Preacher Spindrift, in a series that continues in 2017 with GODS' Fool and in 2018 with GODS' Warrior. Pearson lives on the London/Surrey borders where he spends most of his time at his keyboard imagineering new worlds or twisting existing worlds through the dark prism he uses instead of a brain. He says, "When someone dies it has to matter. You have to believe a life has been lost. An author learns to love the people he lives with in his mind. They become real."
