Title: The Fire WIthin
Author: Bobby Treat
Genre: Science Fiction
: Formats Available: Mobi, Epub, Pdf
Pages: 425

At the end of the 21st Century, the United Nations includes Texas, The States, Luna, Mars and Ceres. The Deep Space Corps of Engineers went to the stars and returned with friends — the walking celery Spruigh and the levitating knotted-snake Bokka. Nanotech medicine pushes life expectancy past a hundred years. Babel provides worldwide communications and virtual reality via brain modem. Life is long, and it’s better than ever.

But the Corps is hiding the existence of alien enemies. Skirrl dragon-lords circle like vultures, and it falls to Kell Stark to catch them at it. Attending the DSC Academy (AKA the Rock) has been her dream since she was three, but her application to the Rock and her meta-human abilities put her in the crosshairs of the telepathic Skirrl. The Commandant of the Corps leaves her to fend for herself, and the warrior Spider hired to guard her has PTSD and a shadowy past.

Nothing in Kell’s life has been simple — certainly not her cousin Jimmy’s trial for sexually assaulting her at sixteen. She’s angry, isolated, volatile, and not always herself. Sex is a handy distraction, but it’s not enough.

The challenges she faces are daunting — but she has a fire in her belly. She will not yield. This is the story of a young woman fighting to save her life, the human race, and hardest of all — her soul.

Warning: This story includes violence and sexual scenes, both straight and lesbian, and is not intended for children or young teens.
