“Murder isn’t becoming of aliens. That is why we must be Death now.”
For a limited time, I invite you to peer through The Mercury Dimension to a plane where humanity wields the vilest of talents. Beta reading sign-ups are going on now and will continue until the end of June.
Unsure of whether The Mercury Dimension is worth your time? Read the summary below!
The Sovereigns of Tsanur, a wealthy race of tree-like people, want their colony at Beta Seven Sarix destroyed and its memory erased. In return for conducting genocide, the Sovereigns promise the humans what they want the most: revenge against the Shadows, the race that long ago attempted to poison humanity in its interstellar cradle.
In answer to the Sovereigns’ call, the Admiralty sends the warship Victurus along with its shapeshifting Commander, the verminous alien Russus. Upon her arrival at the planet, Commander Russus finds no reason to exterminate the Sarixians, and she questions the intent and value of the Sovereigns’ deal. With no authorization to participate in diplomacy and the offer of the Shadows dangling in front of her, she has an uphill battle if she wants to convince the Admirals and the governments of Earth to refuse the Sovereigns’ deal.
Words of encouragement from my Alpha-Readers:
I definitely binge-read this. That is my tendency, but I will take breaks on books if they’re not good. I didn’t want to take a break from this!
It reminded me of classic science fiction, like Asimov or Clarke, but it had a lot of interesting, new pieces, too.
I look forward to hearing from you! Remember, sign ups are here.
