Product description

Product Description

In the jungles of Althar 3, Zhenna Rhodarma has more than just the wildlife to worry about.

When Zhenna is left mortally wounded after a pirate attack, Dr Starrick, the scientist in charge of Althar 3’s research facility, is forced to save her the only way he can – transferring her consciousness into the body of a native.

Though grateful to be alive, Zhenna soon realises that something isn’t right at the research base. She isn’t the only person to have undergone an illegal, experimental procedure, and Dr Starrick didn’t just have saving her life in mind.

Zhenna takes the first opportunity to escape the base, but there are as many dangers on the outside as there are inside. Zhenna will have to embrace her new identity as a Waikari if she’s to survive the deadly flora and fauna, slave traders, and Dr Starrick’s pursuit. But can she reconcile her human memories with her strange new body and abilities, and the memories of the girl whose body she’s been given?

“This book is stock full of adventure. The depth of the characters and their feelings is awesome. This book should be made into a movie. I would definitely go to see it.”
– Kimberly Rose (Amazon review)

“Wow, was this book packed with Action! It was Intense. The world building was off the charts good. The description of the various people and Talents were in depth and done really well.”
– WindRider (Goodreads review)

“The author created a beautiful new world with the possibilities of space travel, cloning, and memory transfer. When the main character awakes in a new body with new surroundings she has to adapt to all the changes. This book explores great new possibilities for mankind and does a great job doing it.”
– Mary Parks (Amazon review)

“I found it to be an exciting mix of sci-fi and fantasy. The storyline's premise reminded me of the movie Avatar, I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.”
– Joscelyn Smith (Amazon review)

“I really enjoyed this book and if they come out with part 2 I'll be the first in line to read it. Without giving you too much detail this book gives a whole new meaning to split personality can't wait to see her figure out all her new powers and just coming to her own.”
– Tenama (Amazon review)

“I loved this story! Action Adventure on every page of the book! Zhenna is transferred into a planet natives body and Tamisan emerges. Jungle life is crazy and scary. The natives are not nice at all. You won't see then ending coming! Wow!”
– Stephanie F (Goodreads review)

“If you are into high action interesting sci-fi-novel then this one won't let you down right from the start there's action that just keeps on going right throughout the book. Great plot and characters and now I will have to read book 2.”
– Kazza (Amazon review)

“I'm new to Susan McKenzie's writing but enjoyed what I've read so far. This story has a really cool storyline. I thought it was well written and pretty well developed. I liked the twists and turns and that it was hard to put down. The characters are well developed and I thought that the story overall was a pretty good read. I plan to check out more of Ms. McKenzie's work.”
– JMD0815 (Amazon review)

Great for lovers of Sci-fi and Paranormal with elements of romance.

About the Author

Susan Carter grew up in Sydney's West, but in a smaller town with plenty of bush on the outskirts. It made for a perfect playground - bush to hide in and explore, trees to climb. Great food for the imagination. She loved to draw, paint, play the guitar and recorder, and write stories. Sitting around the kitchen table with her brothers and sisters, either drawing or painting the object that her father placed in the middle of the table, or writing stories together. But life gets in the way of dreams, and all those fun things gave way to working and socialising, getting married and having a son, now all grown up. Dreams have a way of creeping back into your life. Sue reached a point in her life where she wondered what she should do with herself - career-wise and with her free time. This got her thinking about what made her happy as a child, and the memories came flooding back. Writing and art. During several art courses and a creative writing course, she started writing her first serious Paranormal/Romance novel, "Tamisan." It is available as an eBook right now where all good eBooks are sold and is available in print. Writing on paper proved to be too complicated when it came to editing, so she bought a computer. This eventually led to teaching computers. Life still tried its best to stop her, but with "Tamisan" finally finished and "The Andromeda Mine" well on the way, there's no looking back. Being someone who is into all things arty, she has also created some images for a children's book called "The Lake," which is a story in a book called "Australian Boys Adventures" by Richard Dabinett. Unfortunately, it is not available as an eBook (yet). She also designed and painted the digital artwork for the cover of her book using a graphics tablet. Sue is a part-time TAFE teacher and still lives in Western Sydney with her son, but sadly no bush behind the house to play in. She is encouraging her siblings and her son to write, so hopefully there will be more published authors in the family soon.
