FREEDOM COMES WITH A PRICE.
Free from the spaceship and reunited with Samuai, Asher should be happy. But thoughts of her dead family weigh heavily on her mind.
Things worsen when temper problems in camp lead to a murder. When Asher volunteers to get the drug need to calm people down, tension ignites.
Loyalties are questioned.
Jealousy rears its head. Sparks fly.
And when rumor of a second ship hits close to home, all bets are off.
Have the aliens returned? Is this the end of everything Asher has ever known?
ABOUT BOOK 1: LIFER
The Bourne Identity meets Under the Never Sky in this intergalactic tale of love and deception from debut novelist Beck Nicholas.
Asher is a Lifer, a slave aboard the spaceship Pelican. A member of the lowest rung of society, she must serve the ship’s Officials and Astronauts as punishment for her grandparents’ crimes back on Earth. The one thing that made life bearable was her illicit relationship with Samuai, a Fishie boy, but he died alongside her brother in a freak training accident.
Still grieving for the loss of her loved ones, Asher is summoned to the upper levels to wait on Lady, the head Official’s wife and Samuai’s mother. It is the perfect opportunity to gather intel for the Lifer’s brewing rebellion. There’s just one problem—the last girl who went to the upper levels never came back.
On the other side of the universe, an alien attack has left Earth in shambles and a group called The Company has taken control. Blank wakes up in a pond completely naked and with no memory, not even his real name. So when a hot girl named Megs invites him to a black-market gaming warehouse where winning means information, he doesn’t think twice about playing.
But sometimes the past is better left buried. As Asher and Blank’s worlds collide, the truth comes out—everyone has been lied to…
Guest Post : Five Favourite Quotes Explained.
Thanks for having me here to celebrate the release of TEMPER. I’m so excited for this book and would love to share some of my very favourite quotes from the book:
They come for me at nighttime.
This is the opening line of the story. ‘They’ are the ghosts of those who Asher feels died so she can be free. They are part of the reason she can’t be happy.
I step out and lift my face to the cloud-filled sky, letting the water run over my cheeks and down my neck to dampen the ship-issued singlet I still wear.
Asher has been trapped on a ship so long, the simple act of tasting rain is a magical one.
“I thought I’d find you here,” Davyd says, stepping into a small clearing at the top of the cliff. There’s something intimate about the way he speaks, as though we have some kind of connection. Like he knows me.
Asher has a connection with Davyd. She wants to despise him but there’s something about him and she can’t forget the kiss they shared back on the Pelican.
“What do you want?” I spit the question.
My traitorous body heats at the intensity in the single word. “No chance in hell.”
“But there is a chance? Hell, huh?”
More of Davyd pushing Asher to acknowledge the spark between them.
My heart is beating so loud I can’t hear the murmur of his voice in my ear. We’re the same now. Lost in the feeling, there’s no sound but our breathing and blood pounding in our veins.
This is everything.
With Samuai, Asher’s first love, everything else disappears but the two of them.
Thanks again for having me. Happy reading.
About The Author
I always wanted to write. I’ve worked as a lab assistant, a pizza delivery driver and a high school teacher but I always pursued my first dream of creating stories. Now, I live with my family near Adelaide, halfway between the city and the sea, and am lucky to spend my days (and nights) writing young adult fiction.
