Grace is blaming herself for the death of two good men on Kwaide – even Six's teasing can't raise a smile at first. A strange first contact on a distant planet might provide a vital clue to Arcan's past, but it can't quite cure Grace of her feelings of guilt.
When they arrive on Xiantha, they find a stunning planet; hot, sunny and full of colour. For the first time they can start to relax and enjoy a holiday – at least, until the independent Diva is forced to swallow her pride and beg Six to help her out on a very personal matter. His decision will change her future.
Meanwhile, back on Valhai, Atheron is grimly determined that nothing is going to stop him this time. He has been laying his plans for revenge carefully, and they include using Grace to bait a trap which will cause the total destruction of the orthogel entity ...
--Not all of them can come out of this unscathed ... and what happens on Xiantha will impact their lives forever.
About the Author
Six of the seven books in the Ammonite Galaxy series have been published so far and the seventh is in editing.
She is English, although she lives in Spain now. She has always been passionate about cosmology and astrophysics, and this shines through in her books.
She said in an interview: "Valhai is the book I always wanted to write, but I got so involved with the characters myself that I simply had to go on writing about them, which turned a one-off novel into a series. I hope readers will identify with them and enjoy them too. I myself have been practically living in The Ammonite Galaxy for the last five years. It has become so real to me that I can almost touch it!
The Ammonite Galaxy series:
Book One: Valhai
Book Two: Kwaide
Book Three: Xiantha
Book Four: Pictoria
