ADELAIDE, Australia (PRWEB) February 11, 2016
In “NANDROTH” (published by Xlibris AU) author Peter Miles gives readers a truly ripping yarn full of adventure and memorable characters at every turn.
This unique take on science fiction follows the adventures of computer scientist Axel who is working on a prototype matter transmitter, only to find himself in the body of a humanoid named Lexar, in the land of Nandroth. Bewildered in an alien place with a technological level roughly the same as 14th century Europe and Asia, Axel is bound to face the task given to him - to help the Androthi defeat the invading mekkans. With whatever resources he can find, Axel seeks to exploit special features of mekkan engineering in order to subvert their seemingly unassailable power.
It is a gripping narrative of intergalactic action that brims with romance, thrill and witty science fiction.
