THORHILD, Alberta (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
J. M. Krause’s newest sci-fi novel in the Blackmailed Secrets series, “c-Surfer: Sabotage Threatens Sol System Defense’s Newest Fighter Ship” (published by iUniverse) picks back up with her series’ protagonist as he deals with the loneliness of witness protection and attempts to prove himself in the face of personal and professional hardship.
Private Cory Reddick, born Geoff Anders, testified against a vicious gang and was led into witness protection in the first book, “High Orbit Hero.” In “c-Surfer,” Cory starts over with Sol System Defense and is transferred to the new c-Surfer ship. Once there, Cory is torn. He wants to prove he is the best one to fly the new ship; however, he’s worried his turbulent past will compromise the safety of his crew.
“Cory Reddick is a young man hiding from life as much as he is hiding from his old enemies,” Krause explains, “but he grows into a soldier willing to risk his life for his friends and risk breaking his heart in an attempt to locate his family.”
Set at a time when gravity fields are used for ship propulsion, “c-Surfer” takes readers on a perilous journey from the comfort of a well-established military base in the asteroid belt to an unfinished station orbiting Neptune. And to give a little something extra to her readers who enjoy action, adventure and an underdog to cheer for, Krause introduces unique new technologies for readers to speculate about.
An excerpt from “c-Surfer”:
“‘Not sure, sir. Seekers are loose.’ Fifty marble to golf ball-sized globes of orange sealant came flying into the cockpit from their storage cubbyholes in the walls. They were designed to follow air escaping from the ship, split at the break, and release the sealant.”
