Usually after a month of having Halloween decorations all over the house, I am pretty done with it by the end of the Halloween party. The next day I am quick to get it all down and packed back up in the attic. Right now I am about halfway done. On the other hand, the house is starting to look pretty darn empty and a slight bit depressing. I think I even hear an echo. As soon as I get the rest of the decorations down it will be time to put up Thanksgiving. Thankfully they are much less in your face, and more of a feeling of pleasant Fall. Just to add to the ambiance of the whole day, it is raining. That is not a common occurrence here in California. Let’s just hope it continues for a while.

Heretic: A Military Archaeological Space Adventure (The Zenophobia Saga Book 1)
by Brad R. Torgersen, Craig Martelle
4.3 Stars (221 Reviews)
Genre: Science Fiction | Action & Adventure

FREE for a limited time

Where did the Zenomorphs come from?

Tigers, wolves, gorillas, and bears. Four planets at each other’s throats. But they have too much in common for it to be a fluke. Just mentioning the possibility that they descended from the same place gets one labeled as a Heretic.

When Sankar comes into possession of a religious text that hints at where they came from, he seizes the opportunity and makes it his mission to find the Truth.

But he needs help from all the races. With a stolen warship and a ragtag band, Sankar sets out to answer the question that is illegal to ask.

Zenophobia. Where fear of the other races started a religion and perpetuated a war.

It’s time for the worlds to embrace the future by learning their past. But the governments aren’t keen on upsetting the status quo and do everything in their power to stop Sankar and his team.

Island of Dr. Moreau meets Indiana Jones, in space, with cutting edge technology…

From two award winning science fiction authors, an archaeological space adventure that you’ll want to read today.

Authors’ note: We went with Zenophobia with a “z” vice xenophobia because the version with the “x” was too rooted in bad stuff that happens on Earth. This is a story set in space.
