Editorial Reviews

Review

WINNER of the 2010 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold Contest for best action/thriller. FINALIST for the Kindle Book Review's 2012 "Best Indie Novel of the Year" competition

Tammy Salyer's Contract of Defiance (Book One in her Spectras Arise trilogy) is a powerful statement of her prowess as a military fiction author. Her fight scenes are impeccable, her characters three dimensional, and her universe dry and gritty. At times deadly and at others canny, her lead character Aly is smart, strong and someone you can root for. If you like military science fiction you owe it to yourself to get a copy and move it to the top of your to be read list.  ~ Author of Aetna Adrift and The Far Banks of the Rubicon, Erik Wecks
Arm yourself for a riveting quest on the galactic fringe in Contract of Defiance. ~ The Motley Chronicles

This was one of the most well written books I've read this year. I don't normally read scifi, but I must tell you, the writing in this novel should overcome any reticence to grab a copy of this great read and dig in. ~ Author Ron McCabe

I was completely impressed by this book. From the first page you are sucked into an action-filled science fiction adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat, just dying to find out what happens next...I cannot recommend it enough. ~ It is a Bookish Kind of Life

A fast-paced and fun sci-fi space adventure with a great protagonist, Contract of Defiance by Tammy Salyer starts with a running gun fight and doesn't let up until the explosive conclusion. ~ Author Scott Whitmore 

With Contract of Defiance you feel every punch, every bullet. ~ Radiant Attack

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Former paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division, Tammy traded in her M-16 for a MacBook in 1999 and hasn't regretted a thing. Her Spectras Arise series has been described as "grittier than a grunt's pile of three-week-old field gear" and her Shackled Verities fantasy series has been praised for its "compelling plot, intriguing characters and a pretty spectacular world."

Tammy’s “real” life outside writing involves bustin’ her tail trail running and biking with a super-cool SoCal weirdo she wound up marrying because he liked her books. Most of her days include chilling with a sweet doggo and pleading with a psycho catto for a moment of respite from his endless lunacy.

Space opera, fantasy, satire, and snark fans will feel right at home with her. She hopes you enjoy reading her works and welcomes your reviews. Learn more about her and her books by visiting www.tammysalyer.com.
