Author T C Southwell Gives Away The First Book Of Her New Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series, 'The Cyber Chronicles'.
Cape Town, South Africa
To introduce her new science fiction/fantasy series to a wider audience, author T C Southwell is giving away ‘Queen of Arlin’, a 140-page e-book that chronicles the adventures of a free cyborg, Sabre, and his struggle to become human.
Omega Five is a post-holocaust world, abandoned by the rest of civilised space, and home to a mysterious and deadly realm; the Death Zone. Someone from somewhere else watches over the Queen of Arlin, and sends the ultimate hi-tech killing machine to save her from the treacherous kings who seek to annex her kingdom through a forced marriage, something Tassin would do just about anything to avoid.
The cyber-bio combat unit is without peer; a genetically modified human clone under the command of an AI. Initially, the cyber’s mission is to destroy the Death Zone, but his new orders are to protect the Queen. When a freak accident damages his control unit, however, Sabre is free to choose his destiny and how to use his deadly abilities, but he hates what he is and longs to be human. The lingering commands of the damaged control unit bind him to the high-handed and somewhat irritating girl he must protect, who seems to have a knack for finding trouble, or making it, wherever she goes…
This stunning first book of a 9-book series will sweep readers up in a tale that pits knights, kings, monsters, mages and magic against the hi-tech weapons and genetically enhanced abilities of the ultimate space-age fighting machine. Add to that a spoilt young queen who commands him, or tries to, and this enthralling character-driven tale of magic, mayhem and impossible romance will keep readers glued to the pages until long after bedtime. Book two, ‘Death Zone’, and book three, ‘The Core’, are also available on Smashwords.com.
