#Spotlight #Giveaway: 'ION 417 Raiju' by James Darcey

 Let's get to know James!

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


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.


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!"

You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

...think about it, girl:
if 1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
then, how WE sinfull mortals have lived
is where we go for eternity, Up or Down,
Seventh-Heaven or the Abyss o'Misery.
Satan's working overtime now precisely
cuzz he knows his time's short.
