The Danger Dance
The Merculians Book 1
By Caro Soles
Life and death action and intrigue aboard a military space vessel!
A startling command from the dreaded Praetan brings chaos into the tranquil lives of hermaphrodites Eulio and his lover Orosin. Using the tour of the Merculian National Dance Company where Eulio is a star as cover, they board the Wellington, a militaristic starship that values nothing they believe in. Someone is passing secrets about fleet movements and weaponry to the enemies in the Troia, but the efforts of the two Merculians to unmask the spy only stir up a toxic mix of hatred and violence. Who will have to die before the Praetan is satisfied? The Danger Dance is a futuristic space adventure with enough swashbuckling action and intrigue to keep even the most jaded science fiction addict enthralled.
“A crackerjack SF novel––moving, eloquent, and richly textured. I recommend it highly.” – Robert J. Sawyer, award-winning science fiction writer
“…a tingling subversity of gender, sexuality and goosebumping excitement. Even better, Soles can really write, with wit, sensuosity and depth.” – Perry Brass, author of The Harvest, Angel Lust, etc.
“A well written novel, full of sexual and political intrigue, it grips from the very first page and is difficult to put down….” – Annette Gisby, author of Silent Screams.
