Stolen from Earth...only to learn she's not entirely human.

Mina, a wife and mother, is snatched from her family and forced to serve the ruthless Lostai on a distant science station. The DNA of an evolved race known as Sotkari Ta lies dormant in her genes. The Lostai, determined to harness her latent telekinetic and telepathic abilities, push Mina through a brutal boot camp. Despite the hardships and abuse, Mina completes her training and is assigned her first mission, one that goes against her most basic principles. A mission she will not accept.

If Mina is to escape the Lostai, she must trust an arrogant and unpleasant soldier whose morals seem questionable, at best. The strong attraction between them both annoys and unnerves her.

Even if she gets away, she will need to survive in this alien environment while evading the Lostai. Will she ever make it back to Earth, or have her actions already changed her destiny and the fate of those who assist her?

Review quote

"The Curse of Sotkari was a smooth blend of space opera and romance. I enjoyed Perez's world building and cast of characters. The author's choice of dialogue was also realistic and easy to follow when discussing the politics and relationships involved in this story. I'm looking forward to seeing where her next book will take these characters."

"I very much enjoyed The Curse of Sotkari Ta. I am new to the space opera genre but I have always liked science fiction. Maria Perez has created a fully formed universe that drew me in right away. She built in a fascinating history of the Sotkari Ta that gives the story a depth and richness. Although unique and interesting, this world is enough like our "Earthian" world to be quickly understandable and easy to get immersed in. I immediately connected with the main character, Mina, and her plight of being stolen away from her life and learning secrets about herself and the universe that were previously unknown to her. Maybe that is a perfect set up for our age. The plot is well constructed and pushes the story forward so it is never boring. It is a well-paced fast read. The book has a romance element, and the romantic scenes were well constructed and tasteful. It was a joy from start to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in science fiction and a good story. I look forward to book 2"
