Journey to Nyorfias (Book 1)
by T.M. Roy and Terran Moffat (w/a)
Here's the set-up:
Rett, a battle-weary soldier from Nyorfias, needs imagination. Pam, an imaginative dreamer from Earth, needs inspiration. Unknown to both women, a fledgling Guardian of Balance needs them both in a desperate stratagem to protect the very existence of the two-planet Nyorfian system, which is not only under attack from physical entities, but from the dark force that inspires them.
Pam's first ten minutes on Nyorfias, however, just about flushes Rett's military career down the nearest toilet. Can Rett learn to cope with being saddled with a dimwitted alien mindforce--and keep herself and her platoon alive at the same time?
CONVERGENCE is Book One in a three part epic adventure where the fate of an entire planetary system hangs in the balance.
GRAVITY (Book 2) is now available for Kindle.
STRATAGEM (Book 3) due summer 2011.
From the back cover:
When the going gets tough...the tough deal with it. Or maybe not...
Sergeant Rett of the Nyorfian Special Forces is in the fight of her life, for herself and her worlds. She doesn't realize she's the key Player in a local battle of a Game of universal scope: the struggle of the Guardians of Balance to maintain a healthy equilibrium between evil and good, darkness and light.
The neophyte Guardian for Nyorfias, Pheasyce, faces an ancient and powerful force of Dark, and must risk all in a dangerous and unique strategem, one that uses Rett as the focus. Arranging the convergence between the key Player and an imaginative dreamer from another world could be the best tactic ever.
That is, as long as Pam, who thinks this is all a dream, doesn't get Rett killed first. And as long as Rett can accept this dimwitted alien mindforce... from some planet called Earth.
Price Reduced for a limited time! Book Two is now available!
((Originally published as Journey to Nyorfias, Book One, by Terran Moffat. The text has been revised.))
Apex Reviews (VINE VOICE)
(Planet iPad Editor's Note: Vine Voice is an invitation-only group of reviewers selected by Amazon to receive advance copies of books for review. Apex Reviews is a group of 75 experienced authors and editors with over 600 reviews published on Amazon.)
Taut, fast-paced, and action-packed, Convergence is a bona fide sci-fi thriller. Superbly crafted by author T.M. Roy, the imaginative tale of interstellar adventure and suspense is rife with intriguing characters and a strong central plotline, all of which make for a compelling, entertaining read. Furthermore, Roy's skillful use of moral and emotional undertones gives her story the added edge of authentic drama often lacking in more rigid, technical-leaning sci-fi yarns.
The solid debut of what promises to be an exciting and engaging new series, Convergence takes readers on a nonstop literary thrill ride from which they'll be loathe to get off. Strongly recommended.
