A Scary Tale for Halloween
by Lee Emory
About the book:
Aaron Gromar, former UFC Senator who’d lost favor with the new world order, is warden to Androneda Prison, a remote planet which takes five years to reach in a ship with FTL drive, but he is as much a prisoner as the inmates. He can never leave. Aaron is a strong man with a dark secret he dare not reveal as it would mean his death.
Apart from the occasional use of an isolation cell, there is no need for bars in Androneda’s Prison. Staying alive from day to day is enough deterrent to misbehavior for most prisoners. That, and a device called Lobe-O. The only sure escape from this planet is death. It’s been tried.
Berina Colchek is sentenced to life on Androneda, better known as Perdition (Eternal Hell). She’s an assassin, inured to killing. The the one emotion, perhaps the strongest she feels, is anger. Her anger and hatred is directed at the Warden Gromar and all he stands for, but she soon discovers quite a different enemy facing her she never counted on. Perdition is everyone’s enemy, and the struggle to survive its daily torments is a vital priority for staff and prisoners alike.
One thing is certain. If you’re human, Perdition will either make you stronger or destroy you utterly.
Lee Emory's "Perdition" is a chilling blend of science fiction and suspense, but one that all Christians should read. The author draws you into a world we only experience in our nightmares and makes you care for the main characters, Aaron and Berina. But even beyond the fictional heros you feel compelled to keep reading for one main reason: This could happen, this could be our future. I couldn't put it down and highly recommend it.
Rated: PG 13 (for violence)
Don't mind the cover, it's not an explicit story.
