Product Description

Product Description

Fight for freedom, fight for survival on two planets!
Four hundred years earlier the great spaceships had departed from Terra to colonize distant planets. Few ships reached their destinations; their sporadic signals waned and disappeared. No one knew whether the colonists survived. Civilization fell into chaos in the turmoil of wars, starvation and drought, and struggled to a new renaissance with the discovery of hyperdrive and cheap algal nutrients. Now, construction of a new generation of colony ships was scheduled at one every five years. Planet Delta was selected as the next target because the arrival of a brief signal suggested the descendants of the colonists were alive.
Sultry Tiger Lily longs for freedom. In her fight to escape the subterranean slums of Terra, Lily competes to join the scout team selected for the next spaceship along with a new set of prospective colonists. Their mission to discover the lost colony faces the challenges posed by the voracious predators of the planet. In the mountains, they encounter Conley, a grim warrior who longs to escape the confines of his isolated valley. Has Tiger Lily met her match in this tortured warrior? But, where is he leading them? Danger lies ahead, and conflicts between humans and aliens. Can they ensure the safety of the new human colonists, or must they retreat to Terra?

About the Author

I was born in the UK and have a PhD in molecular biophysics. I live with my husband, a dog and two cats in Atlanta, GA, USA. We have two sons at university. In “real” life, I am a professor with a research lab and many scientific articles. Good scientists and novelists share creative minds and stubborn persistence, despite adversity. My novels allow me to express humor and a wild imagination, while exploring serious problems with weird new characters and worlds. My published works include two science fiction romance novels and a short sweet fantasy story.

I enjoyed reading this story, I am fascinated with finding out how colonies would evolve whether in the same direction or not. I felt for Conley and was glad that Lily and him met. The ants are really amazing I wish ours were like that.
I do feel like the story could have been developed a bit more so the way the princesses ruled and their relationship to the queens. Also I wonder if more soldiers will defect in later books if there are any.

Thank you for this book
