#TopTen #Giveaway: 'ION-417 Raiju' by James Darcey
Ion was born and raised in a secluded
world, with only a sadistic doctor and his lizard lackeys for company. Her
education came from carefully selected material provided by her tormentor, and
the best entertainment was the exercise machine in her small room. It was the
only world she knew.
The one thing that made her different
than hundreds of others in similar situations, was that Ion held a power within
her that was growing stronger week by week. He knew she had the power despite
her efforts to hide it from him. He had created her just for that power. He was
training her, but for what she didn’t know. The only thing she had going for
her was that he didn’t know how strong she was getting.
Then by sheer chance, she discovered
the truth of her existence. More than just the sinister plans he had for her
future as his mind-wiped assassin. She had family. A family he had stolen from
With this discovery, she made plans
of her own. Plans that had her traveling across half the galaxy in search of
her mother’s people. It’s a long and dangerous journey for an inexperienced
girl. How well can she trust her happenstance companions? What welcome will she
find at her journey’s end?

The woman bowed slightly with her greeting, "Please forgive me! I didn't know they had brought you with them. Hirohito! Saiyuki! Get the table set for our guest as well. You will join us for dinner?"
She had made it both as a statement and a question, as though she was being polite, but refusal wasn't an option. There was more that she wanted to say. That was obvious with the look in her eyes. I didn't mind the implied assumption in her words. The smell of the food had awakened my stomach into thinking it needed sustenance. I agreed to stay if she would allow me to assist. This pleased her, and yet she refused my offer, still insisting I join them for dinner. Even with the offer of joining them for the meal I could see something troubled her. With my acceptance she leaned down to whisper a question to Hiro."We told you; it's because they are filming the movie. She's a space hero. You ought to see her space ship; it looks so real!"
