Summer Solstice - S.G. Basu - The Dead of Summer

S.G. Basu was kind enough to include her short story, The Dead of Summer, in the Summer Solstice anthology! She is the author of the Eternity Prophecy. She is new to the Kindle Scout family and her book looks excellent, so give her some support today!


The Eternity Prophecy

In the Veloressian Empire of the twenty-three stars, prophecies are sacred and absolute. Until the day Oracle Prime Leon Courtee challenges the Empire's most sacrosanct divination--the Eternity Prophecy. The next morning he disappears, along with an inconceivable truth that could cripple the Empire. 

As murmurs of a conspiracy simmer underneath a facade of peace, the regime prepares to strike back. Anything to keep the dissenters quiet. Or better yet, dead. The Empire is ready to turn innocents into pawns in a game of treachery and deceit--a sacrifice deemed necessary to keep peace across the galaxy. 

Will truth stand a chance against the all-powerful Empire? 

In this unputdownable tour de force, disparate lives--a young mother fleeing a horrific past, a covert operative trying to resuscitate his career, a self-taught hacker fixated on revenge, an assassin seeking redemption--crisscross and careen unwittingly toward a stunning conclusion.
