A YA Science Fiction Novel
Available now from Champagne Books!
His father died. His mother abandoned him. In the depths of space, darkness seeks him.
Abandoned by his mother after his father’s death, Gethyon Rees feels at odds with his world and longs to travel the stars. But discovering he has the power to do so leaves him scarred for life. Worse, it alerts the Siah-dhu—a dark entity that seeks his kind for their special abilities—to his existence, and sets a bounty hunter on his trail.
When those same alien powers lead Gethyon to commit a terrible act, they also aid his escape. Marooned on the sea-world of Ulto Marinos, Gethyon and his twin sister must work off their debt to the Seagrafter captain who rescued them while Gethyon puzzles over their transportation. How has he done this? And what more is he capable of?
Before he can learn any answers, the Wardens arrive to arrest him for his crime. Can his powers save him now? And where will he end up next?
Character interview – Jinx
Meet Jinx. She’s small, she’s sassy, and she’ll rip your powers right out of you in a heartbeat…
Jinxuri of the Chei-ha’veen. But you can call me Jinx…if you live long enough to get friendly.
Older than you’d imagine. Not old enough to worry about retiring just yet.
Oh, here there and everywhere.
But your planet of birth—
Is none of your damn business.
Um, okay. Profession?
How would you describe yourself?
Small, but deadly. Don’t ever make the mistake of underestimating me if you value your life. My skin is silver with beautiful black markings that are unique to each Chei-har—
What’s a Chei-har?
*glares* Full of questions, aren’t you? A Chei-har is a hunting group, what you might call a clan I guess. But I’m on my own now… *Jinx gazes off into the distance*
Sorry, you were describing yourself?
What? Oh, yeah. I have blood red hair that spikes up when I go into hunting mode, and my eyes go completely black – it increases the range of my vision. I’m stronger than a human, but light on my feet. No one gets away from me once I’ve marked them.
Well, Gethyon seemed to do okay…
*Jinx hisses, her red hair rising like hackles* He got lucky! It won’t happen again.
*clears throat* Shall we carry on?
*Jinx waves a hand* Whatever…
Heh, like I’m going to tell you anything about that! All I’ll say is I move around. A lot.
So you’re well travelled?
*Jinx chuckles* Yeah, you could say that.
Hopes for the future?
To get my hands on a Traveler and deliver them up to the Siah-dhu. Then maybe I can finally get them off my back.
Anything else you’d like to share?
*Jinx grins and shakes her head before walking away* Watch your backs. You haven’t seen the last of me…

A stay-at-home mum of three who spent twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay bases her stories on a lifetime addiction to science-fiction books and films. Somewhere along the line a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. Between torturing her characters, she spends the odd free moments trying to learn guitar, indulging in freestyle street dance and drinking high-caffeine coffee. Although happily settled in historical Colchester in the UK with her husband of 20 years, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head. Her works have won a SFR Galaxy Award, and finaled in the Readers Favorite Award Contest and the Gulf Coast RWA Chapter Silken Sands Self-Published Star Award.
