Participating in an illegal tournament
is the only way Ebony Strike can help the starving people
from her planet. Willing to risk harm if it will help the
masses. She’s sure with her intelligence and fighting skills
nothing but a few bumps and bruises will stand in her way.
That is what she thinks until she meets her competitor.
Aldanen is more than what he seems, an agent working to
bring the tournament to an end he has tricks and secrets up
his sleeve. Secrets that threaten Ebony’s mission to win
enough money to help her people. Ebony and Aldanen have more
to worry about than their reasons for being there as the two
become participants in a drug induced sexual feast that
brings them together in ways neither could imagine.
One of the beauties of the sci-fi genre
is the ability to design worlds and races that have their
own distinct personalities. In Combat the
range of creatures, some human in nature, most not was
pretty fascinating. K. S. Augustin wrote this story in first
person, so as you read along you’re actually experiencing
all of Ebony’s fears, excitement and shots of adrenalin as
she conquers one opponent after another. Some what of a dark
shadowy story, Combat makes the pulse zing and
the heartbeat race as you wonder if Ebony’s streak of good
fortune in the tournament will eventually run out.
