Warriors of the Hollow World

Blurb

Olara, the leader of the Claw Clan, has known only war her entire life. Vengeance, like the artificial world she lives in, has circumscribed her every thought and action. When Ketzhura, her worst enemy takes Olara to the star-filled darkness below the ground, she offers her an opportunity: Olara's people can learn to fly among the stars as they did hundreds of years ago. All Olara has to do is put her hatred aside, betray her duty to obtain revenge, and accept friendship with Ketzhura. But whatever she chooses, there will be war.

Back Cover Blurb

In a distant future, on the edge of known space, a discovery is made which may be the key to human survival.

The Allied Worlds starship Leonardo has just found an artificial world the size of a thousand Earths, a massive spherical structure with a negative gravity sun at its center and a civilization on its interior.

The scientific knowledge used to create the Sphere could provide them with a way to win a war against the Draetch, a race which is hunting the human race to extinction. Unfortunately, there are two problems standing in their way.

First, the Kushar, the people who dwell inside the Sphere have lost the understanding of their own technology.

Second, the Draetch got their first. Their vessel is, however, damaged and unable to attack or fly. Is this an opportunity to broker peace with the Draetch, or should their stranded vessel simply be destroyed? Can the crew of the Leonardo reverse engineer the mysterious devices built by the Kushar before the Draetch return?

If you like space opera, advanced technology, alien cultures, and a touch of the mystical, you’ll love “Warriors of the Hollow World.”

Join the crew of the Leonardo and the Kushar as, together, they struggle to find the science that will help both their people’s survive.

The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Sylvi: Being new to this app, I really just wanted to find a story that made me interested enough. Being most interested in mystery, I just typed “Detective” into the search. Things led to another and I found this book. Reading the title and teaser, I assumed, “Oh, it’s going to be another one of those ...

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

Maja1111: I particularly loved the vivid dialogues. Also, the atmosphere throughout the story is so specific, with a touch of a mystery. Really enjoyed reading it.

Erica: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...
