Children / Scifi


The year is 2218 and the galaxy is at war. The thing is, very few people know it. Certainly not twelve year old Cindy Parker, a seemingly ordinary girl attending a very ordinary school on an idyllic but dull outer planet. Cindy is more concerned about getting through the day avoiding the taunts of her classmates (led by the reprehensible Jacinta Pembroke) and the disdain of her icy teacher, Ms Primp. Little does she know that a series of events will soon lead her to a hidden facility belonging to a top secret, galactic spy agency (the Galactic Central Council Spy Corp, or GCCSC) where she will train to be a spy.

We all know how she saved the galaxy (several times), brought an uneasy peace between humans and Turgs, rescued the Supreme Grand Councillor from vicious space pirates in the Theta Sector, and came third in the 27th Annual Oliver County Bake Off. Her unique skills in espionage – and other things – are a matter of public record.

This is not that story.

No, this is the story of an ordinary girl, growing up on an ordinary (if quite small) planet, at the boring end of the Galaxy, about 30,000 light years from Galactic Central Point (you know, Galactic Central Point, where the Galactic Central Council sits, where things happen). It’s the story of the girl who would become Cindy Psi, and it starts on an ordinary Tuesday, on an ordinary bus stop, and it’s raining ...

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.

Rebecca Weller: This book is gritty, and not for the faint of heart, as far as what you can expect the heroine Layla is put through, and yet there is a compelling and tender love story wrapped up in the darkness.

Jalakins: I loved this story. The characters were very interesting and engaging. The plot was very interesting and I had a hard time when I had to stop reading - just wanted to read it all in one sitting! My only complaint on the story is that sometimes I felt like the storyline jumped from one thing to a ...

Profezzer: This is a prequel of sorts to a much larger drama that happens a couple thousand years in the future. The Olafson saga is as good as any I have read and ranks up there with some greats in terms of plot and the construction of her universe. Her one detraction is spelling and punctuation but do n...

ranaenana: Wonderful plot, great dystopian society, Orwellian, Huxley type. I like the different points of view, I would like a little more information on the characters, but I am only half way through. I am devouring it!!

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.
