I may be a Prince, but there are things that trouble me about my father’s royal rule-the forced abduction, experimentation, and torture of alien creatures. The king has a new prisoner who’s a carefully kept secret…
There’s a young female who belongs to a little-known civilization I have been studying extensively. They are human, belonging to a small, undeveloped planet called Earth. She is pretty in a way I find unusual and compelling. Sometimes I sneak into the adjoining cell and we talk about everything and nothing, even as I find myself yearning to touch her strange, soft skin.
Skin that is being subjected to invasive tests and experiments. A body that’s scheduled for a live dissection in fifteen days. And a life that will be terminated unless I risk my future and life to help her escape…
The Trans-Galactic Insurrection series is best enjoyed in order.
Book #1 – Gamma Rift
Book #2 – Starstruck
“Is someone there?” I whispered.
The light behind the undulating door dimmed, and a blurred image of a figure appeared through the opaque curtain, a tall figure standing upright on long legs and with arms hanging at its sides. It appeared human-like, but its shoulders were extremely broad, its waist small, and its legs and arms thick like a football player in uniform.
“Human?” asked a muffled voice.
Human? Did it mean me? “Um, yes?” I answered softly, trying to keep my voice level, low and pleasant, so maybe it would be sympathetic and help me. My words bounced back in my direction, making me flinch. Please, someone be here to help me and answer my questions. Please.
“Come closer to the wall but do not touch it,” the voice warned in a deep, distinctly male tone that was oddly soothing rather than threatening.
Though I was certain whoever it was also saw me in the same fuzzy fashion, I kept my private areas covered with my arms and hands, remained seated, and scooted forward as close as I could without hitting my body against the moving goo.
The strange silhouette lowered to sit on the ground, and while I sat sideways to shield as much of my nakedness as possible, the gray blur faced me and sat with bent knees. Squinting didn’t make the image any clearer, and after several seconds of staring at the flowing wave of wall, I blinked hard, releasing a tear.
I needed answers. The confusion and ache of not knowing what was going to happen to me bit at my soul, sending the gnawing pain of hunger residing in my gut throughout my entire body.
“Please, please, tell me. Where am I?” I begged, catching my trembling bottom lip with my teeth and swallowing a rising lump in my throat. Stay calm, I warned myself. Don’t make it mad.
