Immerse Yourself in an Alien World

Khe loves her simple life on a farming commune, until she discovers that her gift for pushing the crops is a death sentence. Fleeing across the treacherous wilderness, she makes her way to the city of Chimbalay, searching for the orindles who might save her. But Chimbalay has its own dangers. The Powers are there--the secret rulers who have chosen Khe to be the mother of a monstrous new race.

Neither "man in space" SciFi nor classical fantasy, Khe deftly blends elements of both while satisfying those wanting something new in a dystopian story. Readers looking for solid world-building and fresh and fully-realized characters will especially enjoy this book.

Khe's story continues in Ashes and Rain. The companion novella, Gama and Hest, reveals the secret history of Khe's world.

What readers are saying about Khe:

"...grabs you by the collar and pulls you in. By the time you are finished you are in love with the strange places and complex characters."

"Imaginative and well-written - an entertaining, thoughtful read."

"The story is fascinating, and the writing is full of brilliant inventions."

"Loved this book. It's so exciting to read a book and become immersed in a completely foreign world."

"If you are a lover of SciFi with a dash of fantasy this is a perfect book for you. The characters are intriguing and well thought out. Razevich gets an A+ in creating an alien world and populating it with fascinating creatures."

"When I first started this book I was somewhat skeptical, as it was much different from my usual selections. But the excellent writing drew me into the story and I enjoyed it more and more the further I read. The world and races the author developed were very interesting, and although much different from us I had no problem relating with the heroine. The twists and turns of the story were unpredictable and often thought provoking. Highly recommended for anyone wanting an interesting well-written story."

"I didn't want it to end."

".. once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. Imaginative and unusual, with amazing world-building."

"I had high hopes for the book and they were surpassed."

"It has been a long time since I have read such a compelling science fiction/fantasy novel that had me in its grip like this one."

"I can't remember a single science fiction book that I've read that didn't have at least one human being as a part of the story.  ...  The story of Khe is spell-binding and filled with love, nature, danger, and success."

"Within just a few short chapters Alexes Razevich creates a believable but complex and completely alternative world which could have taken other authors a hundred pages or more to make the reader be so immersed in such a unique fantasy realm. Then the adventure takes you on a journey unlike anything I could try to compare it to (if you really forced a comparison out of me, perhaps; Frank Herbert with a more feminine angle.) "

"The author has a great talent for drawing you into her characters and making them come alive in your
imagination. I highly recommend this book!"

"She isn't Nancy Drew, Little Red Riding Hood, the bookish Velma or Hermione. She isn't a cheerleader, a femme fatale, a lovestruck teenager, or any other female lead or supporting role I've ever seen. She is herself, framed by her world and her culture, but not by our own."

Review:

"a wonderful new world to explore for those who want to read something different and new."  -Dag Rambraut, Science Fiction and Fantasy World

"I would recommend Khe to any fan of science fiction or science/fantasy adventure, especially those bored of the typical "man on a spaceship" archetype. I look forward to what Ms. Razevich's wild imagination produces next."  -Will Weisser, The Metanautics Department Book Reviews

""I was very impressed with this story and it is perfect for all age groups.  This author is one to watch. She has skills."  Kimmie Thomas  -She Really Said It Book Reviews
