About this product
- DescriptionBook 2 of the Union Stories Sypsis: The Union shakes with unrest as the idealistic foundation of the young intergalactic confederation begins to crack. The Bendalurians are threatening war, and the Union Senate merely sits waiting for them to make the first attack. But the Bendalurians remain in a holding pattern, biding their time until they can get their hands on something that will tip the war in their favor... To Brigit Sunders all this really means is a rough day for her shop and an extended delay on reaching her dream of buying a trade ship. Her people are n-Union and the Union's war dance appears to her as only trivial squabbling. Even as her outpost home on Gersemi continues to fill with Union soldiers, she turns her mind to other matters like the growing poacher problem on the plains and the unpleasant butcher who neighbors her market stall. It isn't until a mysterious Aveslor steps out from the shadows one chilly night and offers her a golden statue that she begins to feel the weight of the galaxy's problems on her shoulders. With an eye for quality work and a taste for treasure, she accepts the small goddess figurine even though it comes under some very strange conditions. She must find the proper home for the statue, and only she can decide into whose hands it belongs. Though a simple task at first glance, Brigit is quickly thrown into a battle between two desperate parties for the statue. Control slips from her fingers, and she is thrust further and further into a dark world of deceit. Only when she accepts her role as the keeper of the goddess, can she escape the bitter grip of war.
- Author BiographyLesa Corryn is an American science fiction and fantasy author who is currently working on two series, The Union Stories and The Mortal Gods. She prefers to write character driven stories focusing on the human condition and self discovery. Around the age of 4, she wrote her first book, which was about the different colors of the rainbow. Since then, she has written in her free time, never considering her hobby for a full time career. However, in August of 2011 she made the leap toward the profession, publishing her first novel, Secrets of the Horizon, on the Kindle. She was born in Maryland and has spent, to this point, her whole life there. She earned a BA in Visual Arts, Animation and Interactive Media at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Outside of writing she enjoys video games, anime, drawing, crocheting, baking, spending time with her husband, and lolcats (especially her living, breathing lolcats named Cricket and Milo).
