#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

her.


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?

James was born in the middle of a tropical swamp on the third planet orbiting a distant yellow star. Growing up the son of a military father meant that books

were among the best friends he could have. They traveled with him every time he moved, and took him on adventures that nothing short of a trans-dimensional portal could hope to achieve.


Currently

he resides in a place called Utah, on the shores of a dead sea, with his wife

and fellow author Molly. His days are spent catering to the whims of machines

that devour people whole, and regurgitate them at distant locations. At other

times he is working on his writing. The current projects include continuing the

adventures of Ion in the fourth book of the series, adding to his epic fantasy

series, and the saga of the Stargate Thieves.

Snippet:
 
 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!"
