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 noticed how so many things in life can be amusing? Jokes, comedians, someone speeding past you on the road only to be pulled over by the police a few miles later. A make us chuckle just a bit. In this excerpt, it's the actions of another person that amazes Permac. Linsora's actions amaze him because it's a side of her that he rarely sees. Take a quick read and see if you can see from where his amusement stems. Thanks for reading and be sure to tell your friends! Tokorel is coming.
Permac pulled the hood of his cloak up. People had remarked that his blue eyes sparkled when he was amused, and right now, for the first time in his year of enduring these streets, he was highly amused. He pursed his lips, hoping the bushy beard would hide his erupting smile. He felt something like a parent taking his child out on a shopping spree. Linsora flitted from shop to shop, stopping to sniff the aromas of food that wafted from stalls and cafes. With each whip of her head, the loose auburn braid flew from side to side, allowing more wisps to escape. He had never seen her so animated in a positive way. She was simply delighted in her freedom to touch and sniff and move. He wondered how long it would last.
