To protect her young daughter from a madman and a tyrant, Rachel Pryne must trust an enemy -- one of the alien warriors who conquered Earth. It is 2032, the Ohnenrai -- Earth's humanoid alien conquerors -- orbit the planet and Terran reproduction is failing. Rachel, a trained medic, is struggling to protect her seven-year-old daughter, Pearl, from the sexual predation of their penal colony's leader. Having fathered the girl by rape, he now intends to take her on her eighth birthday, only six weeks away. Then Rachel finds her unlikely champion -- an injured Ohnenrai soldier who appears in her yard one stormy evening. She knows she may be choosing death over the devil in trusting this warrior, but she doesn't know that her trust, and her DNA, will make her one of the most important and endangered people to ever set foot aboard an Ohnenrai starship. Equal parts science fiction, suspense, and romance, Girl Under Glass moves from a post-apocalyptic wilderness in the American Pacific Northwest to a high-tech world aboard an alien starship furnished with all the stolen comforts of Earth. Readers meet Rachel Pryne, whose parents' lifelong and life-ending connection to the Ohnenrai has set her upon a path she never wanted to travel. And they're introduced to Ehtishem, an Ohnenrai soldier who exists to save his dying people, but who faces enemies from within and without his own military. The only possible solution to the Ohnenrai's extinction lies within Rachel, but all she wants to do is protect her daughter and see Earth's alien conquerors go straight to hell. This book contains adult themes and strong language. *Publishers Weekly is an independent organization unassociated with Amazon and Penguin Group (USA).

About the Author:

Monica Enderle Pierce and her characters have been kicking the crap out of evil since 2012. Her first novel, GIRL UNDER GLASS, was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semi-finalist and a multi-category sci-fi bestseller. Of her dark fantasy novel, FAMINE, reviewers have said, “Jeez. Effing heck. I need more now!” and of her epic fantasy romance, THE SHADOW & THE SUN, they've written, "One of the best fantasies I've read in quite some time." Her stories are filled with intrigue, love, adventure, powerful heroines, and intelligent heroes. Monica has an English literature degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. She lives in Seattle, Washington, USA, with her husband, their daughter, a neurotic dog, two crazy tomcats, and a one-eyed fish. My work includes sensual love scenes, but not erotica. While you won't find any "dangly bits", you will find passion. I also am unafraid of violence. That being said, I'm a firm believer in the right amount at the right time and trusting you, the reader, to fill in the gaps with your own imagination. I hold an English literature degree from UCLA, which was gathering dust until 2009 when I began work on my first historical fantasy novel. I live in Seattle with my husband and daughter and our two rock 'em sock 'em catbots.
