You are here to celebrate the release of Alienation, book two of the humorous Sci-Fi series, Starstruck.
Sally Webber’s dream is coming true: Zander is back and taking her out for a night on the town–on a planet hundreds of light years away from Earth.
But when an accident separates her from her alien tour guide, she’s thrown into the seedy underbelly of an insane city where nothing is as it seems. Suddenly lost and desperate to get back home, Sally is willing to do anything to get out, even if it means accepting spontaneous marriage proposals, crashing some fancy parties, or joining what appears to be the space mob.
All she wanted was some decent interstellar pizza, but now it might be the end of the world as evil nanobots and an out of control AI try to take the universe by force, and the only one who can stop them is missing in action. Sally has no choice but to try to stop them herself–if she can stay alive that long.
Alienation is the fantastic sequel to the hit sci-fi comedy, Starstruck by S.E.Anderson.
The Theosians are a peaceful race that lives in the Undercity of Da-Duhui. Decedents of the original race that evolved on the planet, they were slowly relegated to the dark after joining the Alliance as one of the first ten races.
Deep under the city, the Downdwellers live and thrive, the Theosians making up upwards of 90% of the Undercity’s population. They boast an incredible ability to create fire, or even plasma, out of thin air. Despite this, they are wholeheartedly peaceful. Which works against them in keeping them trapped underground.
Thousands of years of living in this dark environment has made their morphology evolve. Their skulls are almond shaped, pointed at one end, around where their mouth is, while the other point is on the back of their head. Their hair sprouts from the apex in the back, sometimes creating a long ponytail that they can wear like a scarf, carelessly wound around part of their bare scalp. Their round, dark eyes are like those of creatures that live their lives in caves, never to see the sun. Their skin is also a fleshy pale.
Life in the Undercity is not as the Alliance would have you believe. For starters, the night market is a splendid sight that would enchant any tourist – if they ever made it to the Undercity. Lit only by Theosian light, the Downdwellers sell and haggle their wares, which can be anything from fruit and vegetables to high tech instruments. The children enjoy scavenging for lost parts that people in the Overcity drop from their cars, and a trade has grown around upcycled debris.
Sally encounters the Theosians in the Undercity, when she’s trapped there and needs their help to return home. But she needs to help them in return, and her actions could change the lives of the Theosians forever…
