Can a 200-year-old prophecy and a non-believer save two worlds from destruction?
Linsora Anselm is a Khizaran archeologist. She “hears” voices from the past, making her perfect for the job, but she’s stuck in prison after sticking up for her principles—that is, until a mysterious individual pays the guards to help her escape. How will she react when she discovers her champion is the devil incarnate?
When Permac breaks Linsora out of prison, he can’t understand why. He’s drawn to her… but she threatened to kill him more than once because she doesn’t trust his ability to sense and influence emotions. She believes he and his race are evil, and she could be right.
Forced together, they journey through the cosmos in search of historical facts they (and the rest of the galaxy) thought were correct. They discover pockets of truth on faraway planets—as well as a 200-year-old prophecy that seems to intertwine Linsora and Permacs’ destinies.
Through a galaxy of fate, love, deception, and the unknown, Permac and Linsora must learn to trust each other to protect their two worlds. Otherwise, the prophecy says war will annihilate everything in its path.
Khizara is an action-packed, adventure-filled space opera of mystery, love, archaeology, and bad guys that can control the emotions of others with a thought. If you’re a fan of Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, or Frank Herbert, you’ll love this story.
Drew Bankston lives in the Rocky Mountains with his wife, two amazingly perfect dogs, and a garden.
Before he started writing science fiction, Drew received his bachelor’s degree in Bio-Ag Sciences from Colorado State University. After that, just to shake things up, he never really used that degree but worked various jobs in retail and Asset Protection with some really important people who are way too dignified to be named here. He’s still working but would eventually like to write full-time and stop working for other people. He likes pie and chocolate, as everyone should.

Every good story has good guys and bad guys. Sometimes, the bad guys want to challenge each other to prove who is the strongest, Rarely, does the strongest of the bad guys encourage the good guy to do what they do. Such is not the case here. Please enjoy this short excerpt of "Khizara" and grab a copy for Christmas if you are so moved to do so! You can even purchase one for a friend!
Gordek glanced at Yokosh. “I have tried to be a gentleman with you. Tried to reserve my anger. But this time, you go too far. Your disrespect is something I cannot tolerate.” The younger man winced in pain. His knees buckled slightly. Linsora smiled. Her half-brother dropped to his knees without being threatened by a weapon or physical force, his bony left knee hitting the floor, which allowed Linsora to smile. Gordek continued, “Just think, Linsora, you could remove anyone in your way, even this hebihi’k.” Linsora laughed at Gordon’s accent when trying to speak the Khizaran word for a slithering sea creature most of her people despised.
