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.
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, just to shake things up, he never really used that degree but worked various jobs in retail and Asset Protection with some really important people who are way too dignified to be named here. He’s still working but would eventually like to write full-time and stop working for other people. He likes pie and chocolate, as everyone should.

Have you ever found yourself the guest of another? During your stay, did you ever find yourself alone in the house? Did you have the urge to explore the various rooms of your host's home? Would you consider that rummaging? Would you consider it snooping? Either way, the act is the same regardless of how you conceive it. Looking into the private life of another, uninvited, is never polite, not to mention it's something we would never want to find out has happened to us. This very short excerpt shows a difference between the two characters in the book, "Khizara". I hope you enjoy it!
The suns rose long before Linsora and Permac stirred. They found food on the table and all the doors open. Karak and Tayla were gone, as was their ground transport. Linsora suggested they rummage around the house, but Permac said there was no line at all between rummaging and snooping. Besides the general principle of respecting the privacy of their host, he didn’t want to be caught in the act when Karak did return.
