Praise for THE PACK
- I was most impressed by the author's world building abilities. Mars felt real right from the beginning. I gave it to one of my sons to read. He did tell me that "the fighting moves were interesting" and he thought "her sword and weapons were cool.".~By Kristien Howell
- A treasure for scifi readers ~ Midwest Reviews
- This sci-fi for YA jets along, full of action and humor and pathos and even a bit of romance. ~Darby Karchut
And now, an excerpt from The Pack:
She decided then and there that she would give the Security Force just two days before she would attempt to find him herself. Kids of various Security Force Elite members and the Mars Planet Police were sporadically kidnapped over the years, never to turn up again. Shamira swore she would find them and bring pain to those that took them. As she sat there daydreaming of what she would do to those who hurt the missing kids and Officer McCann, she heard a crack. Without realizing she was doing it, she’d pressed her fork so hard onto her plate that the plate snapped in two.
