Book of the month - January 2023
This year we are trying a new feature—somewhat like a book-of-the-month club. Each month a book by one of the Armchair Alien authors will be highlighted with a discount for free subscribers and a free download link for our paid subscribers.
First up is Fractured Orbits, the first book in the Encoded Orbits trilogy.
She is a mutation. She is an abomination. She is a power that could change the universe – or end it. And she is only seven years old.
It’s been 250 years since we discovered the vast web of wormholes, created by an alien race, linking a series of planets. Worlds where, with a little genetic tinkering, humans could thrive. No one thought about side effects until it was too late. Now laws prevent further tampering—but not everyone follows the law. The Protectorate used their military might to enforce these laws.
For Veena, a military cipher decoder, these wars are more than her job – they’re the centre of her existence. She knows a secret: the alien race that created the wormholes may not be gone, and pose a threat.
And even worse, she knows that her own daughter is one of “the enemy”. Born with telekinetic powers, seven-year-old Molly is a mutant who must hide her true nature, or face extermination.
