Editorial Reviews

Review

"Through the Hostage by J C Steel is a compelling journey through a fully realized alien world that seems to be teetering on the brink of internal war." - AuthorsTalkAboutIt.com

"Alien mercenaries. Telepathic abilities. Intrigue. A race to the finish with deadly stakes." - OnlineBookClub.org

"...a sophisticated read with complex, intricate world-building, well-fleshed-out characters and smooth, clever dialogue." - Knockin' Books

"The world that has been created within the pages of this book is one of the most original I have read in a long time. Khyria is a well fleshed out character and one that I felt a connection with, which doesn't often happen for me with sci-fi books." - Reader's Favorite

About the Author

I'm a writer, martial artist and introvert. In between the necessary making of money to allow the writing of more books, I can usually be found halfway to the next galaxy. The first four novels in the Cortii series, Through the Hostage, Fighting Shadows, Elemental Affinity, and Elemental Conflict are published, with further sequels in the works.

I was born in Gibraltar and spent the next few years on a yacht in and between Europe and the Caribbean. I attended schools in England, the US, Gibraltar, France, Wales, Spain, and Canada and I still can't write neatly.
