Alarik by Aurora Springer
Genre science fiction romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): pg13
Two people fleeing their planets discover a shared destiny.
When an alien spacecraft crashes on Mars, the repercussions sweep throughout the solar system and endanger the fragile new alliance with the Warrish mermen.
Alarik Kenton Tallis, First of his Triad, is forced to infiltrate human society on Earth as a spy to insure his injured brother receives proper medical care. But when his transmissions are detected, he must flee the planet.
On Mars, Phoebe Wong, a veterinary scientist with dubious family connections, is desperate to escape the vicious gangs terrorizing the underground cities. She jumps at the chance to join the colonists bound for a distant exoplanet.
Their paths intersect on a space ferry bound for the outer planets. Trouble generated by the mysterious spacecraft pursues them to Jupiter. Will they find the answers in the oceans of Europa, the hyperspace gateway to the stars protected by three diverse species?
Why did you write this book?
This book is the fourth in my near-future science fiction series, Taxyon Space. The first three books told the story of how the marine biologist, Dr. Nikki Bell, discovered the alien mermen concealed in the oceans of Jupiter’s moon, Europa. Her meeting and romance with Kiron Arqin Ramis catalyzes an unequal alliance of humans and Warrish. The aliens bring hyperspace travel to humans in exchange for “volunteers” to fight in their battles.
I planned the fourth book, Alarik, as the first in a trilogy about three brothers, Alarik, Baswin and Karrik Kenton Tallis. After their youngest brother is disabled in combat, Alarik and Baswin agree to become covert agents on Earth to pay for their brother’s medical care. Each one will fall in love with a human woman. Their individual stories will connect with the mystery of the crashed ship and the struggle for humans to achieve interstellar travel.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I prefer to read science fiction and fantasy stories. Adventures combined with a romance are great.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Rather than giving one favorite character, I’ll give you an example of a character I admire. Eliza Bennet in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice sticks to her principle of marrying for love. After she realizes she has been mistaken about Mr. Darcy, she has to admit her mistake to him and to her dearest relatives in several embarrassing scenes.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am returning to my longest series, Grand Masters’ Galaxy, to complete the sixth book, Cosmic Lock. This series is science fantasy, starring a powerful, psychically linked couple, diverse alien species, including dragons, and hops between many different planets.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I would like to finish and publish Cosmic Lock. Afterwards, I’ll write Baswin, the next story in Taxyon Space. Also, I hope to write a second medieval romance to follow Dame Audrey.
