Release day: Earthbound
Today is the official release of Earthbound by Valerie Parv (book 2, Beacon series) (ebook, Momentum Books). Here’s the blurb:
It’s one thing to find your path; another entirely to walk it
The beacons, Adam, Garrett and Elaine, are cut off from their homeworld.
In finding each other, they obliterated the first wave of an alien attack on Earth, and together they remain humanity’s only chance of salvation. But they are little help to Earth when they are being tracked like prey by a relentless assassin and are unable to tap into the source of their power, their distant planet of origin.
When the assassin, sole survivor of the destroyed alien attack force, captures Garrett, Elaine must make vital decisions that will change their relationship forever, putting at risk the crucial role they share in keeping Earth safe. Meanwhile, Adam must reforge the severed connection to their homeworld before the threat returns. If the beacons are to avert catastrophe, they must rescue Garrett and connect with their home planet before the invaders return. But will it be too late?
Valerie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
My Beacon series brings together two of my passions—romance and sci-fi. A long-time space junkie, I’m a huge fan of Star Trek, Doctor Who and Big Bang Theory, and can give the Vulcan salute with both hands. Leonard Nimoy used to say that made me bilingual. It also made me keen to share these passions in this series. In Earthbound, book 2 of the series, I explore what happens when you’re cut off from your support network—in this case, putting the future safety of Earth at risk and forcing the beacons to depend totally on each other. I don’t make it easy. Garrett’s kidnap and torture thrusts him into closer union with Elaine than either ever imagined. Adam also has to deal with aspects of himself he never dreamed of. This lets readers explore issues we all face in real life—who are we; what will we or won’t we do to survive? But as always, I give the beacons their happy ending, although they don’t get to enjoy it until all three books and two novellas have run their course. And did I mention they have to save the Earth first?
