Story in which the immortality of the characters is significant to the plot. May have paranormal or science fictional attributes.

Read A Stolen Heart, a novel by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #MM #RLFblogI’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of RLF–and I’m usually welcoming guests in this space. Today, it’s my turn to share a book. A Stolen Heart is my latest in the Antonello Brothers sci-fi series set in the Tarthian Empire.

A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen

When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves’ Guild he once led.

Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc’s immortal ex–the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes.

For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he’ll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he’s coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path.

Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child’s training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him.

Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart…

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. As a member of the Ghost Corps, human special ops soldiers who have been resurrected with the blood of immortals, this is one ghost who’s not taking no for an answer.

Tornahdo from Lights Out by Kayelle Allen

Genre Space Opera, Sci Fi

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Age: 37

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Erased

Profession: Soldier/Special OPS/Ghost Corps

Ethnicity: Hispanic-Terran

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

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.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?

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.

What are the qualities of your character voice (pitch, quality, volume)?

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.

How educated is this character (book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced)?

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.)
