Daily Prompt: BYOB(ookworm)

Write the blurb for the book jacket of the book you’d write, if only you had the time and inclination.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BOOKS.

Vakaria – Where Lasers Meet The Wheel

Humans have destroyed the resources of Earth and now, without more, Humanity is finished. The only option they have is to travel to a class M planet on the edge of a neighbouring system. The problem is, the planet is not empty. There is an intelligent indigenous species – Vakarians. Four armed, three legged, three eyed creatures who build small houses and little boats.

General Ardoit leads the assault on Vakaria, but soon there is dissension as the local species are more intelligent than expected, and start to fight back even though they are out-gunned and out-classed. The humans break into two factions – those pro peace and those anti-peace, although the humans who want peace know they have no trust from the locals.

A young Vakarian, Daniel, is unwittingly caught up in the middle of the war when he stumbles upon something that may turn the tide, and more and more people look towards him for hope and then leadership.

How far will Daniel go to protect his planet?

How far will Ardoit go to take it?

  2. Wow Al, you sure have an impressive library, thanks for displaying my book too! I hope you do get the chance to write Daniel’s story – it would surely be a bestseller. From the blurb you wrote, it could even run to almost three books – as in series. 🙂

    • If I ever get round to writing Daniel’s story 😉

      Well, I had to give a shout out to the authors who already have their own blurbs
