Praise for THE PACK
- I was most impressed by the author's world building abilities. Mars felt real right from the beginning. I gave it to one of my sons to read. lHe did tell me that "the fighting moves were interesting" and he thought "her sword and weapons were cool.".~By Kristien Howell
- A treasure for scifi readers ~ Midwest Reviews
- This sci-fi for YA jets along, full of action and humor and pathos and even a bit of romance. ~Darby Karchut
“Well, I guess you can take care of yourself,” Valens said. “I’m impressed.” He came up behind Shamira while she bent down and removed the truth tick from Lenny’s neck. She crushed the tick in her hands and placed it in a pouch on her belt.
“What do you want?” she asked sharply while she walked past him to Lenny’s flunky.
“I want what you want—answers. I’ve been tracking this guy for weeks, trying to find out about my younger sister, who was taken over a month ago,” he said. She could tell from his voice that he was confident and sincere. He was also a bit older, and Shamira noticed the newness in the deepness of his voice, as if he was still getting used to his grownup man-voice.
“Where are your parents? Why aren’t they doing this for you?” she asked. Then, she pulled off the hook knives that held the metal web in place, and the victim fell loudly to the ground with a cold thud. “If your sister has gone missing, why aren’t your parents doing something about it instead of just you?”
“I’m pretty sure they’re dead. My dad was a member of the Security Force Elite on Sector One. One day when I came home, I found my mom cut down dead in our living room. My father and sister were nowhere to be found. I know he would have killed anyone who harmed either of them. He and my sister were just gone,” he said and walked cautiously toward her.
“Back up. I don’t like people close, so keep your distance.” She squeezed the metal ball, and the web retracted back inside. Squeezing it locked, she slid it into the pocket of her belt. “Well, look, I have to go. Just… just stay away from me, okay?” Shamira turned away from him and ran at top speed to her motorcycle.
