Editorial Reviews



This ambitious science fiction thriller--about a jihadist whose mission is to destroy two space stations and a thriving city on the moon--is visionary as well as topical.

Fahd al-Sharfa's entire life has been about becoming a shahid, a "martyr for truth." Indoctrinated as a child and educated for one purpose--to push a button and kill thousands of "Satan's minions"--Fahd has been waiting for the message to annihilate himself and everyone else in Luna City.

But he begins questioning his own beliefs when he falls in love with a coworker: a cat-like, bipedal alien named Quenby. She's an Antal: seven feet tall, white haired, white skinned, and "intoxicatingly sensual." Their physical chemistry is undeniable--as is their spiritual connection--and Fahd realizes he must choose between his mission or love. The complex political situation surrounding Luna and the space stations complicates matters, as does the existence of "peebs:" those passed-beyond who, although dead, are still actively participating in society.

Although Charles Freedom Long has created a complex foundation for his story, it's explained clearly and concisely and has a sense of authenticity to it. The interaction of various sentient alien races gives the narrative a C.J.Cherryh vibe, and the care with which the author describes the aliens--physically and sociologically--is impressive; the sex scene between Fahd and Quenby is nothing short of spectacular. His concepts surrounding the dead are fascinating and the themes he explores--what is truth, the power of love, etc,--are profoundly moving.

This is a unique, fast-paced, and utterly readable book. It is highly recommended.

About the Author

Charles Freedom Long talks with deceased people all the time. After years of seeing the dead portrayed in countless fatuous ways, Charles decided it was time for someone to show them in a manner some might consider more truthful. That is, life continues beyond the change we call death, the personality survives passing beyond the earthly life and moves on into other dimensions. So, with the help of some friends on both sides of the veil called death, he began writing science fiction, fiction to be sure, but with a spiritualist point of view.
