Description

On his first crossing through the warps, Seg discovers a world rich in vita - fuel to save his dying world. Cold, brilliant and desperate to prove himself as a Cultural Theorist, Seg breaks away from the recon squad sent to protect him, to scout out prime vita sources. But to find his prize he must face his biggest fear: water. Fiery and headstrong, Ama receives an ultimatum from her people's tyrannical overlords: betray her own kind or give up the boat she calls home, forever. When a wealthy traveler hires her as a guide, Ama thinks her prayers are answered - until a violent murder reveals Seg's true identity. On the run, over land and water, hunted by a ruthless and relentless tracker, and caught in the schemes of a political powerhouse, Seg and Ama will have to strike an uneasy truce to survive. The fate of two worlds is in their hands.show more

About Kristene Perron

Kristene Perron is a former professional stunt performer for film and television (as Kristene Kenward) and a self-described 'fishing goddess'. Pathologically nomadic, she has lived in Japan, Costa Rica, the Cook Islands and a very tiny key in the Bahamas, just to name a few. Her stories have appeared in Canadian Storyteller Magazine, The Barbaric Yawp, Hemispheres Magazine, and Denizens of Darkness, among others. In 2010 she won the Surrey International Writers' Conference Storyteller Award. She currently resides in Nelson, BC, Canada but her suitcase is always packed. A career nomad, Josh Simpson has driven trucks through the lower forty-eight states, treated and disposed of hazardous waste, mixed mud as a stonemasonry laborer, failed abysmally in marketing, gotten on people's nerves as a safety man, and presently gets on their nerves even more using nerve release techniques in musculo-skeletal pain relief. He lives amidst the scrub and mesquite of West Texas, cohabiting with the requisite writer's minimum of two cats. Warpworld is his first published novel.show more

Our customer reviews

(as reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Book Reviews) Did I enjoy this book: Yes! As with most sci-fi there was a bit of a language learning curve, but once I figured out who all the races were and how they related to each other, I couldn't put it down (I may have given up a movie night with Husband to keep reading). There were enough classic elements to keep things comfortable (think: interstellar travel, culture clashes, secret missions, interspecies love), and enough corkscrews to keep me reading. I won't give any of the unique bits away, but I will say this: it took me almost as long to figure out what was going to happen as it took the protagonists (and they were the ones deciding, after all)! I've read other reviews that compare this book to Stargate, The Hunger Games, even Harry Potter. I'd say... it's all of those plus a bag of awesomesauce. Would I recommend it: I already have! I have this weekly Girls' Night thing where my lady friends and I all sign on to Mumble and chat about life, liberty, and why our SO's are currently annoying us. Last week, even though I was barely half-way through Warpworld, I recommended it to my girls. We've passed around books like The Name of the Wind, The Lord of the Rings, and The Princess Bride, so it's no small thing to recommend a book to my gals. :-) Will I read it again: I'll definitely review it before I read the next one... I'm addicted to Seg & Ama's story!
