Arm yourself for a riveting quest on the galactic fringe in Contract of Defiance by Tammy Salyer; an Amazon average rating of 4.8 stars.
A Little About Contract of Defiance:
Crossed, double-crossed and left for dead, can it get any worse?
Aly Erikson was a Corps deserter and gun smuggler living on the fringe of a galactic Orwellian society until a botched job leaves her brother in the hands of a cruel government and her left for dead. When a strange crew of settlers takes her in, Aly must learn to trust if she’s to have any hope at saving her brother and getting her revenge.
The science fiction is secondary to the human story of struggle that tests individual limits of heart and mind. Salyer creates a world where mistrust is an institution as a result of a barbaric galactic government that uses any means to suppress its people. Aly is a product of that government but escapes its clutches to avoid being its tool. Her military skills manifest in an ability to survive under the radar but the emotional damage she brings is her greatest challenge.
Salyer gives us an action-packed page-turner and Contract of Defiance where you feel Aly’s internal struggles as if you were a member of her new crew trying to break down those emotional walls. You can’t help but root for this heroin and the concise writing guides you and Aly through a quest that very well could be her last.
