Mercy or miracle?
One woman's choice.
Being a direct descendant of the captain who massacred the Mayans, DARQ is a Wysotti woman and a duty-oriented, pragmatic interstellar fighter pilot.
She doesn't believe in miracles or forgiveness, or that J'Hi-inti (god) would ever rescind the death curse on her people for what happened to the Mayans. Only J'Hi-inti hears one compelling plea for reconciliation and decides to let chaos rule--and test Darq. After all, she's a wild card like her nefarious ancestor. What will she do when she faces the ruthless alien fleet commander who spearheads the blitzkrieg that is to finally destroy her homeworld, and who she once witnessed murder her cadet comrades?
Blinded by hate and survivor guilt, all that stands between survival and extinction, heaven or hell, for Darq and her people is mercy--or a miracle.

I found the theory behind the book fascinating. Some American Indian tribes tell stories of coming from the stars. Ms. McLean took that fact and built a very believable story line around that concept. And who doesn't want the gods, or God, to directly influence events in your life? I liked it and I would recommend it (actually I have) to others to read.
An intriguing premise set in a possible future based on an alternate history. This is a fun adventure with interesting characters, brain candy for anyone who likes action and character driven stories.
