About the Author

After spending twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay is now a stay-at-home mum who writes scifi and supernatural stories to engage the emotions. Somewhere along the way a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moment looking after her chickens, creating cosplay for humans and dolls alike, and studying the Dark Side of the Force. Although happily settled in the historical town of Colchester in the UK with her husband of 25 years and three not-so-little monsters, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Pippa Jay is a dedicated member of the Science Fiction Romance Brigade, blogging at Spacefreighters Lounge, Adventures in Scifi, and Romancing the Genres. Her works include YA and adult stories crossing a multitude of subgenres from scifi to the paranormal, often with romance, and she’s one of eight authors included in a science fiction romance anthology—Tales from the SFR Brigade. She’s also a triple SFR Galaxy Award winner, been a finalist in the Heart of Denver RWA Aspen Gold Contest (3rd place), the 2015 EPIC eBook awards, the 2015 RWA LERA Rebecca (2nd place), and the GCC RWA Silken Sands Star Awards (2nd place).

Gethyon gets an unreserved five stars from me. If I'd had the time to read it in one sitting, I would have done so for sure. Jay introduces us to Quin's twin children, Gethyon and Callon, but in particular Gethyon. Inheriting psi-talents from his father, the Eidar Darion, Gethyon is in danger from the Siah-dhu, a dark entity that preys on his kind. For this reason, Quin leaves Gethyon and Callon with their human grandfather so that she can distract the Siah-dhu from their presence. This coming-of-age story takes us on a journey as we watch Gethyon's initial unwitting use of his powers through to the point where he is in full control of them and able to face the Siah-dhu. At the same time, we watch Gethyon changing from an angry young man - a hangover from an early encounter with his mother - into an assured adult. Jay's pen depicts characters and worlds alike with a deftness that transports the reader into the visions she creates. Pain, agony, acceptance and joy alike flow off the pages, and oh, there's this one bit that makes me wince/cringe/shudder like no other writing I've read. Spoilers! I pick up every new work that Jay publishes without hesitation, and I have yet to regret it. This is another masterpiece!
