Khe (The Ahsenthe Cycle, Book 1) by Alexes Razevich

Praise for Khe:

“…grabs you by the collar and pulls you in. By the time you are finished you are in love with the strange places and complex characters.”

“Imaginative and well-written – an entertaining, thoughtful read.”

——
Immerse Yourself in an Alien World

Khe loves her simple life on a farming commune, until she discovers that her gift for pushing the crops is a death sentence. Fleeing across the treacherous wilderness, she makes her way to the city of Chimbalay, searching for the orindles who might save her. But Chimbalay has its own dangers. The Powers are there—the secret rulers who have chosen Khe to be the mother of a monstrous new race.

Neither “man in space” SciFi nor classical fantasy, Khe deftly blends elements of both while satisfying those wanting something new in a dystopian story. Readers looking for solid world-building and fresh and fully-realized characters will especially enjoy this book.

Quicker (an Ell Donsaii story #1) by Laurence Dahners

Quicker is a near future SciFi/Thriller whose young heroine Ell Donsaii is an intrepid athletic phenom who reminds one of David Weber’s Honor Harrington. Like Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) Ell is also a mathematical genius who, instead of counting sheep, works on her own theory of quantum mechanics to help her drift off to sleep. At once shy and concerned about her social skills, yet well loved by those around her, she finds herself at the center of a terrorist plot at the Olympics. The terrorists never contemplated trying to hold a hostage with the unbelievable quickness and athleticism of Ell Donsaii! A tradition of young, strong, brilliant, female heroines like Honor, Lisbeth, and Katniss Everdeen is continuedExcerpt “Oh, come one. Just one little kiss.”She leaned back with a shy grin on her face and looked him in the eye, “Nope, maybe we’ll get to know each other better if we both get into the same academy?”That reminded him that he was never going to see her again, so he got a firmer grip on her shoulder and turned her toward him, leaning in harder. “Oh, come on.”“I said no!” Ell felt her heart pounding and her world started to slow down. Her gut clenched as she realized what was happening to her. She was falling into the zone and something bad might happen.Phil mistook her tone for intimidated fear and thought she was about to buckle. He exerted just a little bit more of the power that had won him so many wrestling matches, drawing her closer.“Stop!” Her hand swung back with a little handbag in it.He pulled a little harder, laughing inside at the thought of being hit by a purse – right up to the moment it exploded against the side of his face. He staggered back and, though he never saw it coming, a second blast of agony came from his crotch. To his dismay he found himself writhing on the ground, curled about his ravished groin, holding his face, unable to breath. Waves of agony pulsed slowly through him.

Mommy Booknerd, 5 star review:
“What a great story about a headstrong and spunky princess wanting to take charge of her own fate. This book reads so descriptively and has a fairy tale way about it. The characters are appropriate for it’s target audience and the story is not only engaging but action packed as well…”

““The Escape of Princess Madeline has a little bit of everything: a strong female protagonist, teenage rebellion, young adolescent love, drama and suspense, and a touch of magic.
