Somewhere out in space, humanity's past is about to catch up with its future.
When Morgan Selwood's spaceship is stranded in unknown space she is relieved to be rescued by humanoid aliens. But her unusual appearance and her extraordinary technical abilities mean that everybody wants a piece of her.
Who's it to be? Autocratic Admiral Ravindra, who press-gangs her to help against a shadowy threat from the stars, or the freedom fighters who think she's a legend reincarnated, returned to help them throw off the yoke of oppression?
Morgan doesn't much care which it is until the uprising and the atrocities start. While civil war rages across the planet the shadowy threat from the stars emerges as an implacable killer bent on destroying all intelligent life. Morgan will need every bit of her superhuman, bio-engineered intelligence to save the man she has come to love and his people from annihilation. And spare a little to save herself.

Greta van der Rol does proper science fiction: her stories are rip-roaring adventures with technology that's based in science and takes that next logical techie step in a universe far, far away. The narrative is tight, the action high, the peril real, the characters engaging and the consequences of internecine warfare and planetary squabbling dire. As they say ... this is doggone good stuff. But what the author does better than most is write hormone-attacking, drool-worthy, lust-inducing male characters, Admirals specifically. Admirals I'd be willing to serve under ... hmm, yes, moving on. I will admit to being a fangirl and I will also fess up to engaging in that most excellent past-time, `Casting Couch', where I daydream about the perfect male to fill Ravindra's shoes when Sam Rami comes knocking for film rights. Or Ridley Scott. I'm easy. Ravindra is autocratic, a man of wealth and power and used to getting his way. Morgan Selwood is a bioengineered Supertech whose space ship is stranded in unknown space. Captured by Ravindra's fleet, she is an anomaly, alien, yet not - possessing powers that could prove useful in the fight to stave off a potential external threat to Ravindra's worlds. Conspiracies and deals abound, and freedom fighters use Selwood's unique appearance and abilities to bolster their cause to throw off millennia of oppression. But not all is as it seems and Morgan must finally choose sides because the real threat lies not just from within because what's coming is from the past ... Morgan's past. The action is non-stop and will leave you breathless. And the romance between Ravindra and Selwood? Trust me, you won't be disappointed. I'll give it Five stars while I debate: Saahren, Ravindra, or Hudson? Whew, is it hot in here?
Having grown up with Francis Carsak's "The vermin of the lion", I can completely appreciate a work of science fiction combining adventure, romance, politics, history and a few other things thrown in for good measure. "Morgan's Choice" has all of that and is bound to appeal to the sci fi fans who like genre-hopping between hard-core space fiction, cyber-punk and "Foundation"-style political intrigue. Absolutely brilliant!
