"Wow! If readers want to see and feel and
believe they are in deep space, then "Borealis IX: Akira's Choice"
is the perfect choice! With a touch of romance, the vivid
descriptions and beautifully developed characters masterfully
presented by Schartz create a virtual world that invite the reader
not merely to observe, but to walk amongst them and participate...
This is a delicate art, and Schartz wields her weapons with
precision and skill. Banzai!"
When bounty hunter Akira Karyudo
accepted her assignment, something didn't add up. Why would the
Trans Planetary Protectorate want a kidnapped orphan dead or alive?
She will get to the truth once she finds the boy, and the no good
SOB who snatched him from a psychiatric hospital. With her cheetah,
Freckles, a genetically enhanced feline retriever, Akira sets out to
flush them out of the bowels of the BOREALIS space station. But when
she finds her fugitives, the kidnapper is not what she expects.
Markku, a decorated rebel soldier, stole his nephew from the
authorities, who performed painful experiments on the boy. Stuck on
Borealis, he protects the child, but how can he shield him from the
horribly dangerous conditions in the lawless sublevels of the
decrepit space station?
Akira faces the worst moral dilemma of her career. Law or justice,
duty or love. She can't have it both ways.
