A Note from Petra


Due to a snafu, some readers who pre-ordered or bought The Starfarer early on Amazon have received an older working draft of the manuscript, instead of the final copy. My apologies for this. Amazon is working on this and we hope to have copies updated for everyone affected soon. Thank you for your patience and my profuse apologies for the disastrous reading and customer experience.

 

Will history repeat itself when a girl with a deadly heritage and a mysterious  starfarer fight for a future together …

The Rainmaker, Book 2 of Saga of the Chosen, continues the story of Tasia and the Chosen from The Prophecy.

Set in the fantastical and intrigue-riddled world of the Chosen, this is an urban fantasy tale with an unfolding mystery, many twists and turns, action, adventure and a dash of romance.


 

As they race to untangle the past and thwart a ruthless enemy, Tasia faces her toughest decision yet. Can she take a leap of faith to follow her heart – and risk her deadliest secret?

Tasia is no longer a nondescript and friendless Wizard on the fringes of San Francisco’s Chosen community. With a Pack to defend her, a powerful Alpha to protect her interests and friends to watch her back, her life is a far cry from before. But her new life holds many challenges for a Chosen more used to the shadows. Pack politicking keeps her on her toes, her equation with the formidable Alpha leaves her floundering, her unique affiliation with the Shifters draws unwelcome attention and the mysterious terrifying nightmares have her constantly on edge. Yet, it is the investigation that poses the greatest threat to Tasia.

The stakes have never been higher as old fault lines, long-buried secrets, Wizard dysfunction and Lady Bethesda’s ambitions draw the Chosen ever closer to a civil war. While Tasia grapples to avoid the pitfalls and confront her demons, it is an unlikely nemesis who forces her to face her moment of truth. Tasia finds herself at the crossroads – at stake are her carefully constructed house of cards and her tangled relationship with the man who holds her enemies at bay. Will Tasia risk opening Pandora’s Box or walk away to disappear into the shadows again?

“Couldn’t put it away … Great world building … I love it when a book just pulls you in, makes you forget time and makes you read past your bedtime … If you’re a sucker for some good romance, action and great world building you should pick up this book.”
– Esther Dauvillier of BiteIntoBooks

“Be prepared to embark on a breathtaking journey to a distant galaxy that you won’t want to return from!”
OnMyKindle

“The Mercenary is a sci-fi fantasy novel, I’ll never forget. Epic and completely flawless. I fell in love with the characters … A warrior who hides his facial expressions well, a rebel woman who’s afraid to open her heart, and a group set to destroy them both. Enchanting, thrilling, and full of adventure. Petra Landon created another magnificent page turner. I couldn’t stop reading it. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to all.”
Urban Book Reviews

“With all the watered down sci-fi we are flooded with, Petra Landon brings back true sci-fi with The Mercenary … This is definitely a book I will recommend to everyone. It was refreshing. The writing was flawless. The characters very likable. Everything about this book will draw you in. I don’t want to leave this world and I’m excited for the next book to come out!
