Kidnapped, taken to another planet – how much worse can Riley’s life get?

The kidnapper is her boyfriend Jothur and Sacral is his home planet. The castle inhabitants are psychic, mainly telepaths, and they are at odds with the Mutes in the forest. The psychics’ plan is to discover how Riley blocks her thoughts. This will help them completely eradicate the Mutes who are a mixture of free telepaths and non-telepaths.

Riley seeks help from the Mutes and meets Tynan, their leader. She hopes he will help her escape the tests the telepaths want to do. Instead she discovers the magic of Sacral is dying due to an imposter being on the throne.

Riley and Tynan work together to discover the real king and place him on the throne. Part of the plan relies on Riley returning to the castle to delve for more information. Will she survive or will her mind be torn apart by the tests?

 

Read an Excerpt

On the far side of the room, Riley noticed a large carving on the wall. She crossed the room and examined the two panels, each depicting life on Sacral. At the top of each panel, identical carvings caught her attention. A long-tailed bird flew out of high-reaching flames. The carvings reminded her of a phoenix rising. This did not help her find clothing for her body. Riley looked at the panels again.

I wonder. Could they be doors? It’s a good way to keep them from destroying the beauty of the room.

The panels had no obvious way of opening – no handles, no indents in the appropriate places to provide finger holds. A push and a pull nearly broke her already short nails. The doors remained stubbornly closed.

Tears pricked Riley’s eyes. How could she appear at her best before the king, not to mention Jothur, without any clothes? These had to be doors to a clothes cupboard. There weren’t any other options in this room.

“Think Riley, think. What other ways are there for doors to open?”

Various ideas came to mind and she tried them all to no avail. What had Jothur told her about his planet? ‘…ruled by magic instead of science….’ In desperation, she cried out “Open Sesame.” To her surprise, the doors swung open to reveal a walk-in closet and dressing room.

Read an Excerpt

Caitlin maintained her position. Her hair was cut short and a cap hung low on her face. Her trousers were dirty and rode up on her thin legs. The boy moved slowly toward her, his hands out in front of him to show he had neither sword nor bow and arrow. His face was friendly and welcoming.

“Come on now, no need to point your weapon at me; I mean no harm,” he tried to assure her, knowing that one wrong move would needlessly be the end of him. “Um, that was incredible how you sprang up so quickly and loaded your bow and arrow at the same time,” he said.

In Liverpool, England, 18-year-old student and Freerunner, Bodie, survives an assassination attempt and flees for his life. His only thought is to secure the safety of girlfriend, Lily, and reach his journalist cousin, Anthony.

So begins a race for survival, joined by a variety of other characters, moving from one set piece to the next, as the world that everyone knows is about to change forever.

Read an Excerpt:

He didn’t have to wait long. But, instead of one or two marked police cars rushing to detain someone who had reported a murder, he was treated to the worrying spectacle of three black Range Rovers, with blacked-out windows, arriving at speed and whizzing up the ramp into the car-park. Very sinister indeed.

He got into the Beetle and drove off. Soon, he noticed that his bimbo manager had left the car with almost no fuel, so he pulled into the first petrol station that he saw. He filled up, before going in to pay with his Visa card. He also bought a packet of cheese and onion crisps, which he proceeded to eat, while he used the outside cash machine. Moving towards the Beetle, he suddenly heard the sound of the helicopter again, seemingly immediately overhead. Quickly, he grabbed the gun and ammunition from the glove compartment and bolted away. If he had driven out, he just knew they would have been straight onto him. Instead, he ran through the garage car wash, skipped a low wall, and was away across wasteland.

About the Author: GB Hope is the author of 11 novels of various genres. He lives in Manchester with his Indonesian wife and their two boys.
