J. A. Fales about this book: The Penumbra Paradox is a science fiction story from the award-winning author of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, Jennifer Fales / J.A. Fales. The book follows beautiful twenty-three-year-old Nahlah Penumbra, the daughter of the eldest son of the powerful Ceterian House of Penumbra and S'thena, a slave of unknown genetic origins, through an interplanetary journey that holds wonder, betrayal, and dark self-discovery. Freed from the gilded prison that she has known her whole life, Nahlah is taken off planet under the pretense of acting as a replacement ambassador for the Penumbra Clan. She soon learns the true purpose of the trip—her emotionally distant father, Rell, intends to use her as a bargaining chip, for real estate, with a monstrous alien warlord. As she finds herself in another galaxy, on a paradise planet with dark secrets and divided loyalties, Nahlah must face the unthinkable. No one is willing to help her. Will she be strong enough to grasp the reins of her own fate, even if that means becoming what she hates the most?
