This is another author I
came across by chance when browsing through the Kindle Store.
I particularly enjoyed
the Red Angel series where Anna nearly dies, along with all her family,
at age four from the deadly Cacao virus. But she survives, thanks to a
poisonous red-headed krait. The medical community is excited since there
is no known cure for the virus, but Anna and her snake, Red, have a
symbiotic relationship--containment, not cure. If she is ever separated
from Red, she will die.
Anna struggles through foster homes. As her krait becomes known and
valuable throughout the three star empires as one of only a handful of
such snakes, she fights off attempts to kill her and snatch Red. She
even comes to wonder if her brilliance in school and eventually at
deciphering code is somehow connected to her constant companion. When
the Naval Intelligence Agency, the NIA, recruits her, her adventures
grow beyond fending off thieves and killers to tracking down
interstellar smugglers as part of an elite team, but the smuggling
cartel are quick to fight back. In the midst of space battles and
well-placed assassins, Anna is convinced that Red's presence may make
the difference in survival or death, not just for her but her entire NIA
Also enjoyed the Riss
Series where A young girl dreams of seeing the stars and meeting aliens.
Her chance comes in the form of a project offering a college education,
commissioning in the SAS Fleet, and a partnership with an alien. She
successfully qualifies and wins one of the coveted ten positions. Of
course everything comes with a price--the alien is a parasite that
inhabits the body and mind, and there for life. Is it a dream or
nightmare come true--or maybe both.
