Kaede is a Source, capable of powering a machine with her own energy, but she has been hiding the full extent of her abilities. Given the tenuous relations between her country and their rivals, she fears discovery of her full power would provoke the war that hangs over them. But others disagree, and firmly believe that power like Kaede’s is far too valuable to be hidden away.
The plot for this one is fantastic. We’re dropped into the middle of a war, both politically and within the military. The classic pilots who get in trouble and the “officers” who always do the right thing and are snubbed. This novella has both the political, the action and the interpersonal relations in it to keep the reader interested.
I’m a Canadian author writing for an LGBTQ+ publisher: Less Than Three Press. I currently live in Vancouver, although my hometown is Prince George, BC. I’m a true northerner at heart; I miss the snow and the biting cold.
I’ve graduated from UNBC with a BA in English. I may or may not pursue an MA in Creative Writing at some point. I’m currently working as a social media assistant with an ESL school.
I am pansexual and genderfluid. I’m out and proud in most places, although I occasionally forget to inform people because I’m bad at keeping track of who I’ve told. I prefer they/their pronouns.
I love reading and writing. I generally write sci-fi and fantasy, but I can write any genre. I like doing cross-genre works. I enjoy reading and may occasionally do reviews of works I have been impressed by.
