The title is IN ENEMY HANDS and it's a hard science-fiction romance. That means that, in addition to the romance, it also delves into astrophysics and pharmacology. My editor says to tell you that the science in it is as much a character as any one of the actual, er, characters. And my, what characters.
- An astrophysicist who really wants to concentrate on her work and not get involved in politics.
- A brilliant human computer who is controlled through drugs, only living his life in two-day cycles.
- An handsome but enigmatic spaceship captain, in command of almost two hundred soldiers in a vessel out on the edge of known space.
- A xenoanthropologist who must live with the fact that he's turned his back on science in order to keep one man imprisoned in his own mind.
What's binding them together is an experiment that can either bring stars back to life...or extinguish entire solar systems.
I'll be blogging more about IN ENEMY HANDS in the months ahead, but just wanted to share the news with you. It's not even up on my own blog yet!
