9781517038700: Sunset in Silvana (The Da'ark Nocturne) (Volume 1)

Talia is a Hero of Pregeor. Or is she? Why are they trying to kill her? Who are her friends? Who are her enemies? Sunset in Silvana is the first book in a Science Fiction saga of intrigue, horror and adventure, set in a galaxy shared by the Terran Union, the Eranian Empire, the Aelumi Confederacy and others. Ruine is, as its name suggests, a devastated planet. Millennia ago, during the war between the Forerunners and the Ancients, its moons were pulverised to form rings, and most of its atmosphere was burnt off. With a thin sulfurous atmosphere, it was not an attractive prospect for colonisation, but eventually a hardy group of pioneers managed to make its single remaining fertile continent habitable. Now, tensions between the two major territories on this continent, Zelyna and Telphania, are high. Relations have been difficult since the province of Silvana seceded from Telphania and joined Zelyna. They came to a head when the Zelynan authorities blamed Telphanian dissidents for the disaster at Pregeor. War seems inevitable. Talia Milanova and her friends had, they had been told, nearly lost their lives helping to evacuate refugees from Pregeor - not that they recalled it, the trauma of the disaster having wiped their memories. Now, people were trying to kill them, and strange memories were beginning to surface. Who were they really?

About the Author:

Paul Sims The Author works as a Software Engineer for a major company. Although he is talented at what he does, he is, at heart, a storyteller. He is married with three sons. Three cats condescend to share his house and he is looking forward to retirement, as he will have more time for writing, and to raise the spaniel(s) he wants to add to his menagerie. This is his first published work of fiction. Robert Warr The Author was born in the South of Africa on New Year’s Day, a fact that was reported in the local paper. This was his last brush with any type of fame. A good education was followed, eventually, by an engineering degree, and having tried the army and the police force (as a reservist in both cases), he went into the world of industry. This industrial career was mercifully cut short following an accident while playing cricket in India. As a part of his physiotherapy, he started writing again and found a satisfaction in fiction that no management meeting could ever match. Having had animals all his life the Author lives in Bournemouth and is currently owned by a Bengal who graciously shares his time with a Labrador and a ginger tom. More information on his work and forthcoming novels can be found on his Amazon Author page. For more information about the setting of this book, see: www.eranian-empire.co.uk
