Jayne Austin wasn’t always the galaxy’s number one spy.
She was expelled from spy school for uncovering a double-agent because apparently, that’s what happens to spies that accomplish great things.
Given a choice between going back to her planet or selling her one-way ticket for starting capital she thought long and hard about her choices.
All of fifteen seconds.
Then, she created ‘the Plan.’
It was a great plan.
A worthy plan.
A noble plan that meant she could start up her own spy agency, and show them precisely who they’ve expelled.
However, when her first case comes in, she begins to wonder if perhaps she bit off too much.
With the fate of the planet in the hands of terrorists, Jayne is forced to up her game and go to lengths she never thought she dared.
She’s going to need *FRIENDS*.
If you love space opera you’re going to love Spy for Hire: a literary triumph of majestic accomplishments a laugh-out-loud, spew-your-coffee-over-your kindle swashbuckling page turner that follows the shenanigans and best efforts of a somewhat cavalier ex-government spy, Jayne Austin.
When an autistic child accidentally kills her twin, the balance of her mind is disturbed and she is institutionalised. As her late teens approach she is guided back towards ‘the normal world’ by her psychiatrist, but as he delves deeper, he discovers that her mind is very far from ‘normal’ and far stranger than he could ever have imagined. Neither human nor alien she is something this world has never seen before and after a number of incredible journeys, the true nature of her reality is finally revealed. ‘Not for the faint-hearted. Rips out your soul and it says look at me! Breaks all the rules and happily marches into territory where no other author would ever dare to tread.’ Dr C Jones Web Site: http://www.lusardibooks.com/
A novel inspired by iconic anime titles likes Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tokyo Ghoul, and Darker than Black. A badass veteran fighter is transferred into the body of a child in the urban Tokyo of a parallel world, an epicenter of clan wars and a dangerous place where you have to watch your step, your back, and what you say. Still, he has his mind, his convictions, and the will to fight for power, money, and respect in this new world. He will show everyone what he is made of, and the criminal bosses will know and fear his mask. But the powers that be of this world are not willing to share their thrones with anyone and are prepared to spare no expense to get rid of this threat.
A kid with the experiences, thoughts, and beliefs of an adult mercenary now goes by the name of Shinji. In daylight, he pretends to be an ordinary student in a school full of heirs of powerful clans and tries to figure out his studies and handle teenage relationships. At night, against the backdrop of a Tokyo teeming with shady goings-on, Shinji is a skillful agent with neither weakness nor mercy.
Shinji has to carefully hide his personality under a mask, so as not to endanger his daily life, not yet ready for an open conflict. His road lays through shadows, his steps are silent, and his moves are deadly.
As you know, rogues do it in the darkness, rogues do it from behind.
*** Changing Masks is the first book of the sci-fi adventure series Whirlwind by Nicholas Metelsky, a critically acclaimed author. This series is the ultimate adventure of a lifetime, as the readers get to watch Shinji start from the bottom and work his way up to the top. The world Metelsky has created is full of inconceivable and tricky fights, modern magic, mechas, and the sin of human pride. In this explosive mix of science fiction and animesque setting, our hero has to find and conquer his place… hiding his true self behind a mask.
As the old world burned, the elite departed to colonise space in search of a new home. Most of the human species perished on earth’s surface, but a protected few remained. Many generations passed without question, but now suspicions are starting to rise. Follow the story of Maz and her best friend Hap, as a chance encounter with a stranger lures them into a mission to decide the future of humankind.
The story predicts the future of the USA in the year 2050. In the age of flying cars and 3D holographic telephones, the Union of the United States will radically change, producing winners, and losers – by the millions, the latter largely the underrepresented and the vulnerable. “Beyond Soylent Green 2050” predicts the outcome in stark terms, the consequence of years of broken government and partisan conflict. Be forewarned: the story is an adventure of surprises and events that may shock readers. Some will argue it is not science fiction at all, but a realistic depiction of what lies ahead for the USA.
