Today’s guest is Kayelle Allen, author of the space opera Lights Out, in The Expanding Universe Vol 4 edited by Craig Martelle.

Lights Out by Kayelle Allen

He can save mankind. After he does one important thing. Die.
Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You’ll live forever, they said. You’ll save mankind, they said. They didn’t say that to do it, first he had to die.
When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he’s assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.
He’s facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.
Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed “Lights Out.” No, there’s more to this than he can see.
To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time–somehow–find a way to keep himself alive…
Lights Out, part of the anthology The Expanding Universe 4: Space Adventure, Alien Contact and Military Science Fiction, edited by Craig Martelle.

Let’s meet Tornahdo from Lights Out, a science fiction / space opera by Kayelle Allen. He might be dead, but that’s not going to stop him from saving mankind.

What does this person look like?

Tornahdo is dusky-skinned, brown eyes, thick brown wavy hair that curls when long. He keeps his hair military short. He is 6 feet tall. Genetic enhancements make him quite strong, but one odd trait is the inability to grow facial hair.

His abuela (Grandmother) until he joined Ghost Corps.

How does your character dress?

He wears the Ghost Corps Master Sergeant’s uniform. Even when out of uniform, he still looks military.

He is Hispanic-Terran and has a slight accent. The tone is medium range when calm. He rarely raises his voice. He speaks fast in his native tongue. His voice is deep, but closer to tenor than baritone.

If you could only hear this character’s voice (but not see them) what characteristic would identify the person?

His accent. Or his favorite prayer. He will use some Spanish terms such as Abuela. He nicknames everyone.

Tornado is educated with some college, mostly military training. He does not flaunt his knowledge. He teaches others without having to be asked.

Does your character scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

He adapts to his environment. He is used to military comforts. A bunk or tent, a lean-to, or on the ground.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many as you like.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

She never thought my religious background was important, but it is the only thing that makes me regret my life’s choices.

When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy?

That despite the circumstances, I am happy. Little goes right for me but that doesn’t keep me from loving life.

What do you wish your writer would write next?

The sequel. Continue my adventure.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?

You honor me by in telling my amazing journey. Muy gracias de me corazón. (Thank you very much from my heart.)

Pietas: Forged in Fire

Pietas - Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire by Kayelle Allen @kayelleallen  #RLFblog #SciFiWhen the immortal Pietas is marooned on a barren world with no food and few survival tools, he knows it could be worse. He could be alone. But that’s the problem. He’s not.

Half a million of his people sleep in cryostasis, trapped inside their pods and it’s up to Pietas to save them. He can’t release one at a time. It’s all or nothing. He’s facing over five hundred thousand hungry, thirsty, homeless, immortals all looking to him for answers.

It’s not all bad. The beautiful telepathic warrior he’s loved for lifetimes is at his side. He’s bonded with a sentient panther. He hates humans but the one dumped on this planet with him has become a trusted friend.

But before Pietas can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, he must take back command from a ruthless enemy he’s fought for centuries. His brutal, merciless father.

Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever…

Genre science fiction with romantic elements
Rating PG13 for science fiction violence (no explicit content or profanity)

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground, thankfully) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home.

She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it’s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories.

From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things.

No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She’s been married so long she’s tenured.

Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas by Kayelle Allen #RLFblog #SciFi #PietasToday’s featured book is Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas a science fiction novel by Kayelle Allen.

Why should Pietas end the war with humans?

His people are winning, yet they insist on peace talks. The Ultra people want to grant humans a seat on the Council. Pietas ap Lorectic, Chancellor of the High Council, War Leader and First Conqueror, disagrees. What’s best for mortals is oppression, control, and if necessary, elimination.

Pietas seethes with rage at the idea of human equality. Humans might have created Ultras, but the creation has far surpassed the creator. Humans die. Ultras are reborn, no matter how grievous the injury. They have no equals.

His people permit him no choice. He must attend these insipid peace talks on Enderium Six and what’s worse, be polite. To humans.

When a human special ops warrior is killed in battle, he’s resurrected in a secret process and inducted into the Ghost Corps. He’s given enough strength to perma-kill immortal Ultras. Ghosts are the most hated and feared of warriors.

When the ghost entraps and captures Pietas at the peace talks, the two begin a long journey toward Sempervia, an isolated and forgotten world. Once there, Pietas is marooned and the ghost abandoned alongside him. The two must either fight to perma-death, or join forces to survive.

As Pietas comes to trust the human, an unlikely and awkward friendship begins. Until he discovers how ghosts are resurrected…
