About the Author

Edward Hoornaert is not only a science fiction and romance writer, he's also a certifiable Harlequin Hero, having inspired NYT best-selling author Vicki Lewis Thompson to write Mr. Valentine, which was dedicated to him. From this comes his online alter ego, "Mr. Valentine." These days, Hoornaert mostly writes science fiction—either sf romances, or sf with elements of romance. After living at 26 different addresses in his first 27 years, the rolling stone slowed in the Canadian Rockies and finally came to rest in Tucson, Arizona. Amongst other things, he has been a teacher, technical writer, and symphonic oboist. He married his high school sweetheart a week after graduation and is still in love … which is probably why he can write romance.

The Triumph of Tompa Lee is an intriguing science fiction novel. It’s the first book I’ve read by author Edward Hoornaert, but it’s the third book in a series, and after reading this one, I’ll surely pick up the first two when I get some spare time. Tompa Lee is everything you’d want in a heroine for a scifi novel. She’s witty, determined, has a wide arsenal of friends ready to help her out when in need, and she’s willing to take a risk to forge an alliance between different races, something which not everyone is happy about. Even in the opening chapter, she gets a warning about what she did, and the suspense is high from the start, as we know the Galactic Trading Council is out to get her, hurt her and destroy her. The setting is unique and engaging, and shows the author’s creativity, and adds a refreshing, original layer to the story. It’s a complex, vast world with tons of different races. While the Galactic Trading Council wants nothing more than to keep those races apart, Tompa is bend on bringing them together. Once Lily Kilsing enters the stage, the book gets a whole new dimension. I loved Lily – everything I look for in a villain, multi-dimensional, not just a puppet meant to play the role of the bad guy, but an actual person. I also liked how TOmpa was willing to sacrifice herself for the people she loved, and that she had to rely on her own wits to outsmart Lily, rather than rely on bare strength or any special abilities. I had to read the entire book in one sitting. Excellent writing, great characters. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
