Guest Post & Giveaway - No Refuge by Annie Nicholas

Space Travel
Imagine one day a couple going on their honeymoon, but instead of boarding an airplane to Hawaii they board a space ship to the rings of Saturn.  
This all seems like fantasy for us but there was a time where people used to dream of crossing an ocean just like we dream of crossing the universe. This dream gets closer to being fulfilled ever year. Just this January I came across this article.
Nasa is developing a theory for almost faster than light travel. Woohoo!
I remember as a kid hoping by the time I retire I could go live on the moon. Hey younger generation, you have 25 more years to make this happen before I retire. *wink wink*
The best part of writing science fiction is working with advance technologies that don’t exist yet and playing with the circumstances like what happens inside a space ship when the space station it’s docked to stops spinning?  ;)

Book Description:

Hunted to near extinction by an alien race called the Ko, my people have run from Earth and drifted so far among the stars we can’t remember the way back. We live everywhere, but call nowhere home. The Ko want us erased from existence and memory. They don’t even want our DNA in the space dust. Humans disguise themselves as other alien species and hide in plain sight. It’s the only way we can survive.

I believe in the myth of Earth. I’ve even discovered a bona fide book written in the dead language of my people. My man, Brody, dreams of a secret human colony. He’s searched for years, hunting any rumor we’ve run across, and finally he’s made contact. Usually, he’s the one grounding me to station and keeping my head out of the atmosphere. Time for me to return the favor…that is, if I can ditch the Ko who’ve discovered me, thanks to my incessant artifact-hunting. If we don’t make our rendezvous, and the Ko don’t kill me, Brody just might…

CONTENT WARNING: Aliens, cargo ships, and a fast paced race against all odds.

  1. The "nomadic tribe" trope has routinely caught my interest, though I've seen it applied to SF books on the planet's surface more than in the setting of outer space. This novel is appealing in genre and tone, and I hope that I get a chance to read it ---> Top Amazon Reviewer #5495 bookwormpov (at) gmail (dot) com

  2. This is one of those books that would immediately grab my attention from the cover! :-) Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  3. I'm thoroughly intriqued by the blurb; it's always mind boggling to me to try to imagine what the future holds for our poor planet. Remember Waterworld? That's what No Refuge vaguely calls to mind. Sounds like a great read.
