Bryan R Bartonabout this book: I had the idea for this book in 2006 whilst working in Iraq, as you can imagine the constant mortar attacks on the base would get intense. So my escape was to start writing and plunging myself into this new world. I was always told when I was younger that writing was a fool's errand and I would amount to nothing as an adult or a writer.
The title for my book was easy once my protagonist was fully thought out. I was trying to find a name of a new species and once that was first thought out everything just popped into place. The book genre falls into science fiction and adventure it's a fun read.
As a child I was abused by my parents, so I ended up moving from children's homes and foster homes, so writing was my way to disappear from it all. I was told I had a great imagination and to keep at it.
My writing process is bizarre, unlike other writers I jump from chapter to chapter, I will be writing one chapter and then, something will pop into my head for another chapter. I also write ending first; I have no idea why I have this process but it works for me.
Darkleich is the head of the Criminal Retrieval Unit. It's his job to hunt down and bring back wanted criminals from the fifteen planets which are part of the United Alliance of Interplanetary Worlds. Darkleich has been tasked to hunt down a Raptarian called Zigart as he has assassinated Prime Minister Toolun a member of the senate. It transpires to be a bigger job than Darkleich expects and he embarks on a chase not only for Zigart but also the truth.
"If you went back to my childhood and told me I'd one day be a victor; happy, living with my partner on the other side of the world and releasing a novel, I'd have never believed you," explains the author. "It just goes to show that anyone can break the cycle of abuse and change their life for the better. Aside from its entertainment qualities, this book is proof that you don't have to suffer in silence."
If I had any words to encourage any other writers, I would say no matter how difficult things get, no matter what obstacles you face, press forward and you will get other them. Doesn't matter what anyone says to you always have faith in your abilities when no one else does.
