About Edge of Light:
"Starting with a bang, "Edge of Light" is an action-packed science fiction novel. Beginning with the dramatic opening paragraphs, the plot's drama and suspense continue to accelerate until coming to a climactic and heart-stopping conclusion. With the extreme situations and the characters' reactions, I was hooked from the first page. Not only are the protagonist well-developed and relatable, but the plot is also flawlessly executed.
