DECEMBER, 2017 BRINGER OF CHAOS: FORGED IN FIRE By: Kayelle Allen The Plot: When the immortal Pietas is ma- rooned on a barren world with no food and few survival tools, he finds half a million of his people asleep in cryostasis, trapped inside their pods. He can‟t re- lease one at a time. It‟s all or nothing. When over five-hundred-thousand hun- gry, thirsty, homeless, immortals awake, they‟ll look to him for leadership. He must not fail. Unless he can save them, his people face extinction. But before Pietas can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, he must take back command from a ruthless enemy he‟s fought for centu- ries. His brutal, merciless father. An Excerpt The sky turned tornado-green. A few fat drops of rain slid down Pietas‟s neck, leaving a cold trail in the heat. These scouts warned of the threatening army advancing. Higher up, ominous thunderclouds glowed a menacing pink and orange. In the distance, the oncoming storm blackened the sky. The wind whistled, calling its dogs to hunt. The hill they‟d crested led to a jagged claw-rip of darkness, a slash in the velvet forest forming a lightless, foreboding tunnel. The coffin-shaped slice emptied into an abyss of shadow, swallowing every indication of depth and life. Icy fingers dragged down his spine. He swallowed, fighting back bile. Pietas slowed his step, dragging bare feet through straw- colored grass. Turning in a slow circle, he held out his arms as high as he could and lifted his face to the cloud-covered sun like a child wanting one more minute outdoors before bedtime. Reviews Welcome.

She wrote her first science fiction novel at eighteen, and to this day, it‟s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories. From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things. No wonder she writes science fiction and fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role- playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She‟s been married so long she‟s tenured. 39 4
