About the Author: Stella Atrium

Stella Atrium is author of SufferStone (launch 1/12) HeartStone (launch 6/12), and StrikeStone (launch 7/13), three fantasy books of the Dolvia Saga.

"Many fantasy stories today are set in Medieval times with castles and horses and magic and princesses needing rescue. Nobody asks, 'How did these humanoids get here?' or 'Why are there so many races of people?'

So I wrote a fantasy series with several races (no elves or dwarfs or vampires), except I placed events in today’s world with helicopters instead of horses, and peace-keeping soldiers instead of warriors, and the internet instead of ravens.

Events take place on another planet discovered by a mining interest from Earth led by the Chinese. Other adventurers are from America, France and Australia. They work for a consortium of inhabited planets where people have government, repression, murder for hire, and all the ills of competition in the marketplace.

If you’re tired of castle stories with endless battlefield scenes, try a planet story that reflects our world and the struggles of women living under the burka. Actions that become legend, leading by example, taking the difficult route – all these may be inspirational to young women today who are allowed few privileges at home or at school." -- Stella Atrium

On Dolvia the women of the savannah serve under the burka, but Kyle Le was denied that covering by tribal leaders. Only her gift of second sight and the mortgage on her father's land protects her and her three sisters. Kyle Le meets Brian Miller, a Softcheeks who teaches her about offworld politics and accumulating wealth while she teaches him the words of power from Mekucoo. Working alongside the warrior Cyrus, they labor against the mining enterprise that robs the savannah of it mineral wealth and leaves the tribes with only the scarred and suffering land. ... an intriguing tale. The struggle to overcome oppression, to preserve a way of life, to maintain compassion in a cold and hateful conflict, is always interesting and involving ... Atrium has a flair for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of mysticism and mystery ... she stays true to the situation, never slipping out of the frame she has set. -- Lisa DuMond, online reviewer of science fiction
