A daring heroine—a mysterious alien—a wild adventure
Reports have been coming in over the last year that religious fanaticism on the planet Prosperine is on the increase. There have been claims of magic performed by a mystic. This Teacher, as he’s called, is a thorn in the side of the government and the target of another disgruntled cleric whose mission seems to be to return the planet to the dark ages.
Rumors of revolution abound in the capital, and the civil government has asked the Galactic Alliance to help deal with it.
The Alliance is in a quandary. The stakes are huge. They don’t want to damage their relationship with the government while they are in negotiations for sole buyer status of the planet’s crynidium. Prosperine is one of only three known sources for the metal which is an essential component of faster than light travel.
But the GA’s charter doesn’t allow them to become involved in local politics, so they’ve asked the Alien Corps to investigate, given their expertise in dealing with unusual species.
Hickory is assigned to the GA to undertake a covert operation on the planet. What happens next will test her to the core.
The Alien Corps is episode one in the fantastic sci fi adventure, Prosperine, and is available in paperback, eBook, and audiobook. If you enjoy stories with strong female characters, then you’ll love this highly recommended scifi series. It’s guaranteed to keep you reading until the last page.
