About this ebook

Can a 200-year-old prophecy and a non-believer save two worlds from destruction?

Linsora Anselm is a Khizaran archeologist. She “hears” voices from the past, making her perfect for the job, but she’s stuck in prison after sticking up for her principles—that is, until a mysterious individual pays the guards to help her escape. How will she react when she discovers her champion is the devil incarnate?

When Permac breaks Linsora out of prison, he can’t understand why. He’s drawn to her… but she threatened to kill him more than once because she doesn’t trust his ability to sense and influence emotions. She believes he and his race are evil, and she could be right. 

Forced together, they journey through the cosmos in search of historical facts they (and the rest of the galaxy) thought were correct. They discover pockets of truth on faraway planets—as well as a 200-year-old prophecy that seems to intertwine Linsora and Permacs’ destinies. 

Through a galaxy of fate, love, deception, and the unknown, Permac and Linsora must learn to trust each other to protect their two worlds. Otherwise, the prophecy says war will annihilate everything in its path. 

Khizara is an action-packed, adventure-filled space opera of mystery, love, archaeology, and bad guys that can control the emotions of others with a thought. If you’re a fan of Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, or Frank Herbert, you’ll love this story.

About the author

Drew Bankston lives in the Rocky Mountains with his wife, two amazingly perfect dogs, and a garden.

Before he started writing science fiction, Drew received his bachelor’s degree in Bio-Ag Sciences from Colorado State University. After that, he never really used that degree because the jobs he had hoped to get vanished. Instead, he worked various jobs in retail and Asset Protection with some really important people who are too dignified to be named here. He’s still working for others but would eventually like to write full-time and live in his fantasy worlds. He likes pie and chocolate, as everyone should.
