Zoe's Tale, Paperback


SHE WON'T GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT It's not every day you up sticks and move to another world.

But then, Zoe Boutin-Perry's life has never been ordinary.

She's the adopted teenage daughter of two former super-soldiers.

She's also a holy icon to a race of alien warriors who track her every move.

So she's used to the quirks of being a human in space. However, this time something's different. Betrayed by the authorities, Zoe - along with her parents and fellow colonists - finds herself stranded on a deadly pioneer planet.

The Colonial Union has also set them up as a target for hostile alien action.

Zoe must become a player (and a pawn) in an interstellar battle, which will determine the fate of humanity.

Her father's side of this story was told in The Last Colony, but Zoe's Tale reveals a whole new dimension.

It's a story you may think you know, but you don't really know it at all.
