When an agricultural country tries to survive a modern war, a powerful woman finds herself in a hopeless situation. People do not count on Queen Geneva to protect them from Emperor Pompey, the wicked gamer who’s always one step ahead.
Things begin to change after the completion of the Starlight Fortress, a giant space structure that may be turned into their best weapon, if only Pompey would sit back and watch it happen. As the war evolves into a competition between old wisdom and advanced technology, Geneva can no longer tell friend from foe. Life itself is a battle, in which mistakes can be fatal and victories do not bring happiness.
“From murder attempts to lives changed by parenthood, The Starlight Fortress dances deftly between the personal and the political, drawing neat lines of connection between the two and creating scenarios in which key players are changed by each other’s perspectives and goals.”-D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
“The novel is well-written. The author has a skillful style and knows how to build scenes and conflicts. Her characters are also three-dimensional, not cartoons representing good and evil.” – Portland Book Review
