Throughout the ages, messiahs have come and gone, and all have fallen.
After centuries of exile, Bantaka the Godslayer is active once more. The Seer manipulates the strands of Time and Space to bring together Pankea’s only hope: the most unlikely motley of misfits and cut-throats in the land, and a godling half-breed who’s bloodline heritage holds the key to saving—or dooming—all Existence.
 
Destined to fulfill an ancient prophecy to “pierce the heart of her ancestor,” Marian Silverblade is hailed as the current messiah of her age. But prophecies often get misinterpreted. And Lord Calahan Darkblade—Marian’s ancestor and Bantaka’s Herald—has plans of his own….
 
The Silverblade Prophecy is the first book in The Messiahs War Trilogy. When destinies collide in a war unlike anything before seen on Pankea, the choices made by the most unlikely of heroes may determine the outcome.

SpecMusicMuse—Review of Remnant in the Stars by Cindy Koepp

remnantinthestarsThe freelance crew of the Gyrfalcon are given a special mission to find the Kesha, an exploration vessel that disappeared after leaving a garbled message. All Derek needs to complete his crew is a pilot and an Aolanian astrogator. He recruits Kirsten Abbot, an injured fighter pilot with a malfunctioning prosthetic arm; and Calonti Sora, an Aolanian banished by his people who has a daughter who was onboard the Kesha. In order to save the crew, they must deal with two anti-Aolanian groups seeking to sabotage the search and rescue.

Remnant in the Stars by Cindy Koepp reminds me of some of the more old-school science fiction where characters resolved conflicts with their brains instead of just their weapons, but while also focusing on the characters instead of just the gadgets while delving deep into cultural, philosophical, and religious themes. Koepp takes a basic plot, a search and rescue mission, and weaves in subplots both personal and political like a master seamstress.

I found this book very enjoyable and fell in love with the main characters almost immediately. I highly recommend Remnant in the Stars.

Best to read while listening to: soundtracks to Star Trek, Contact, and Avatar.

remnantinthestarsBook Synopsis for Remnant in the Stars: Two hundred years ago, the Aolanian home world exploded and a remnant of survivors escaped. As their convoy combed the galaxy looking for a new world to colonize, they discovered Earth and were given permission to establish a temporary base while they continued their search for a new home world. When an Aolanian exploration vessel goes missing after transmitting a garbled distress call, the uneasy alliance between the humans and the Aolanians is put to the test as two anti-Aolanian groups jockey to use this opportunity to press their own agendas by foiling the rescue mission.

Because his daughter was onboard the Kesha when it vanished, Calonti Sora reluctantly signs on as an astrogator with the Gyrfalcon, one of the ships in the search party. There he meets up with an old human friend, Kirsten Abbott. Together, they work to overcome prejudice and political plots as they race toward an enemy no one could expect.

 

loudest_actions_coverBook Synopsis for The Loudest Actions: First contact missions are hard enough, but they get even tougher when the negotiator has an ego the size of a gas giant.

Burke Zacharias, a first contact researcher, is chosen to spearhead humanity’s first official contact with Montans, an insect race that has already had a run-in with less friendly humans. Although his words and overtures toward the Montans are cordial enough, the Montans are put off by how he treats the crew of the scout ship that brought him to the world.

With other, less friendly forces trying to establish a foothold on the world, the negotiation must succeed in spite of Burke, or the Montans could be facing extinction.
