Editorial Reviews


2018 RONE Award Finalist for Sci-Fi / Time Travel

"The book is an incredibly easy read and the writing flows beautifully. I am not generally a science fiction buff, but for me, this was more than science fiction - it was true romance that just happened to be set in space ... This isn't the first book of Petra Landon's that I've read and I can guarantee it will not be the last. As a reader I like Science Fiction that is not too heavy on technological wizardry, but more focused on character building and relationships. The Mercenary fulfils this brief perfectly for me and as the set-up for a series of books it couldn't be a better start. Five big stars from this reviewer."
-- Author Grant Leishman

"Couldn't put it away ... Great world building... I highly advise anyone who likes Fantasy/Sci-Fi to pick up one of her books and keep your eyes open for her new books. This is a very professional author whose strength is the world building which totally comes from her imagination. If you're a sucker for some good romance, action and great world building you should pick up this book." -
- Esther Dauvillier of Bite Into Books

"The Mercenary is a sci-fi fantasy novel, I'll never forget. Epic and completely flawless. I fell in love with the characters ... Enchanting, thrilling, and full of adventure. Petra Landon created another magnificent page turner. I couldn't stop reading it."
-- Urban Book Reviews

From the Author

Set in a distant corner of the galaxy, The Mercenary tells the story of a spirited and resilient girl, a fierce warrior with a mighty heart, and a passionate love that will rewrite the fate of their corner of the galaxy. This is a standalone story with romance, swashbuckling adventure and a sprinkling of action.
The Mercenary sets the scene for The Araloka Chronicles, a collection of SciFi Romance tales with a sprinkling of Space Opera adventure, amidst the backdrop of a war.

She strives to write stories with vivid characters and elements of adventure, fantasy, mystery & romance all juxtaposed together, since those are the tales she has enjoyed the most over the years. To share the stories swirling in her imagination is a labor of love and a lifelong dream come true for Petra.
