As private secretary to Li-Sen-Tot, the Tun-Sho-Lok Ambassador on Eden, Gusta knew how badly the war was going. But when the treaty her government had signed with the Keruh was broken, even she was unprepared for the unimaginable savagery that followed. And with her children lost in the city, escape seems impossible.
As two mighty fleets gather for the coming battle in space, Anaxilea begins the bombardment of Eden with a heavy heart. She feels no anger towards the Edenites, but the Keruh Host was now on Eden, and the Edenites would not escape from the fate that awaited them.
The Atlantian Senate feared that a similar fate would overtake their world. But Ares knew differently. What the Tun-Sho-Lok scientist, Kel-Cid-An had created at Ephesus was a genetic masterpiece, the perfect warrior. But could these fighting clones be produced in enough numbers to defeat the Keruh?
“The Friendly Ambassador: The Beginning of the End” is the first part of a four part galactic epic that mixes Science-Fiction with Greek Mythology and the legend of Atlantis.
About the Author
I was born in Manchester in the North West of England in 1957. Although I have moved around a bit, Manchester is still both my physical and spiritual home. I am a Northerner. I am also married to Rosanna, and have been since 1988. I have an imagination that began when I was very young and never waned. I also like reading and so it was no surprise I suppose when I started writing. Because I am an unknown who has never been picked up by either an Agent or mainstream Publisher, I am a bit of a one man band. I even do my own covers and have become a bit of a digital artist as a result. I started writing when I was young and very bad. Now I am older and a lot better. My writing has improved too. I write science fiction, fantasy and romance stories. I also like to mix and match with romance in science fiction and so on. Female characters feature very prominently in my stories, many of them in strong and attractive leading roles. The reason for this is that I like women, a lot. In fact I adore everything about them, so it is no surprise that I enjoy reading stories where women feature prominently and that I should also enjoy writing stories where women feature prominently. It gives my stories a female bias, but I think they are better for it. I also like every character, even the monsters and villains, to have a realistic reason for being and doing what they do. Like reality, everything blurs. There is no right or wrong, just different viewpoints that lead to conflict. But I also like my out and out villains to be really bad. If you like science fiction, thrillers and romance stories with particular emphasis on leading female characters that are exciting and adventurous, look no further.
