The author who introduced us to Drewcilia Qwah in Queen of Denial, now presents us RJ, an in-your-face rebel leader, in Chains of Freedom, the first title of the Chains trilogy. RJ, like Drew, is a strong heroine and leader, but unlike Drew, knows how to get her point across without colorful language. She is a woman of few words; her style of communication involves the use of a chain and blaster. When political prisoner David Grant ran from the forced labor camp where he'd been imprisoned, his only thought was of escape. However fate turns its hand, and as he runs blindly through the forest he literally runs into the one person who can help him in his fight against the all-powerful Reliance. RJ is the rebel Elite who's been raiding supply trains and sabotaging Reliance facilities so successfully that even the work-units know her name. With David's innocent enthusiasm and desire for justice and RJ's knowledge of weapons and warfare they begin to chip away at the Reliance armor. This is a fast-paced, character-based, science fiction adventure with real heroes, villains, and events that develop in believable and exciting directions.
