Blog Tour - Star Ride : On the Razor's Edge by Heidi Skarie

Science Fiction / Visionary Fiction
Date Published: December 2014

Undercover operative Toemeka Ganti, code-named Star Rider, lives on the edge.

Her latest mission is to overthrow the despot of Jaipar, General Bhandar. His protection comes from sorcerer Samrat Condor, an interplanetary conqueror whose space fleet destroyed Toemeka’s home planet and killed her family years ago. And Condor isn’t about to lose his stranglehold on Jaipar.

Making matters worse, Toemeka must preserve her cover while secretly developing an oscillator, a shield-destroying device wanted by both sides. All this must be accomplished under the watchful eye of her boss, Commander Rochambeau, who is pressuring Toemeka to become his mistress.

Accompanied by her Coalition team and trusted partner Erling Fenian, Toemeka bands with the local underground resistance and Michio Kimes, a handsome spiritual warrior trained to fight sorcery. Together they must battle to free the people of Jaipar and restore its rightful heir to power. 

Excerpt :

  Outside storm clouds filled the evening sky. Toemeka and Commander Rochambeau walked down the sidewalk that ran alongside the speedrider track until they reached a two-story high escalator. As they rode up Toemeka wondered how to escape from the commander. If tortured, sooner or later she’d reveal her team members and their mission. She’d rather die than put her team in danger.
They stepped onto a platform on a hill that overlooked the city. Toemeka shivered in her thin sorgtee as she desperately looked around. Sixty feet away, guards flanked the walled Talon Military Complex front gates. On her left was an airfield.
Suddenly, a man leapt out from behind a thick bush. Commander Rochambeau reached for his blaster and Toemeka gave him a shove and wrenched free. A gun roared. Rochambeau clutched his chest and collapsed. Toemeka fled toward the airfield, afraid she’d be shot next. Footsteps pounded on the pavement behind her and she forced a burst of speed. The attacker caught up with her and raced beside her.
